Limoncello and Poppyseed cake

I’ve always been a fan of lemon cake, whether it be lemon and poppyseed, lemon drizzle or lemon curd….it’s always a winner in my books. After watching The Great British Bake Off I was inspired to mix up my usual lemon cake by adding Limoncello! Limoncello is an Italian, lemon liqueur usually had chilled as an after dinner digestivo. But why not have it in cake too? This cake is moist, boozy and the perfect […]

Tim Tam Brownie Recipe

I’ve been missing sunny Australia lately. It’s probably because spring still hasn’t arrived in the UK and I’m getting a bit sick of the rain. Mum saved the day with an Aussie care package stuffed full of Vegemite and Tim Tams. Don’t know what Tim Tams are? They are magical, chocolately, biscuity bars of goodness. Please hunt them down asap and enjoy. Now for the recipe – I had a few Tim Tams left over […]

The best natural face mask

I’m a huge fan of face masks! You’ll find me sporting a new one most evenings of the week. However, my addiction for single use sheet masks and ridiculously priced, organic, mud masks isn’t really sustainable. So i’ve started to make my own. It’s super easy and they’re unbelievably effective. The crowning glory of DIY face masks has to be the avocado one I’m about to share. I’m not going to lie – it’s messy […]

Shrove Tuesday Pancakes

Shrove Tuesday, although named for its religious significance, is primarily marked by pancake feasting. Before a national day existed for almost every junk food, Pancake Day held the spotlight and rightly so. There’s nothing to dislike about pancakes. Hate sweet food? Have a savoury pancake! Fat or thin, minimal or excessive toppings, the world is your oyster….or pancake in this circumstance. My go to is a Crêpe with sugar and lemon juice or just with […]

Fudgy Paleo Brownies

For January I’m trying a Paleo diet in an attempt to lose some kilos and be healthier! I’ve tried the diet before and had quite a lot of success but found it hard to carry on for longer then a couple of months. I found it difficult to socialise and enjoy myself on special occasions and began to feel guilty for any tiny slip up. Now that’s not a way to live. So this time I’m […]

Lamingtons

Lamingtons are a part of every Australian’s childhood (I would hope) but to many outside of Australia the mention of this delicious cake brings a look of confused intrigue to their face. The Lamington is a soft, golden, Australian cake covered in rich chocolate and coconut. Sometimes you can find it filled with cream or jam (my favourite). As I mentioned previously, Lamingtons date back to 1927, these days they make regular appearances at parties, […]

Vegan cauliflower cheese

Who else hated cauliflower as a child? To be honest, it’s still on the bottom of the vegetable list for me. What can I say? I like a vegetable with a bit of colour and taste. However, that doesn’t mean cauliflower can’t be made edible. Whether it’s salt, oil, or sugar, there’s always a way to jazz up a bland vegetable. Cheese has been the saviour of cauliflower since 1861 when the first recipe for […]

The best granola recipe

I’m a big breakfast fan. The thought of missing breakfast brings a tear to my eye. But you know..sometimes there just isn’t time in the morning to whip up a killer breakfast. Does that mean you have to skip it? No! Homemade granola swiftly chucked on top of yoghurt is the way to go. Inspired by my favourite chef Ottolenghi’s granola this recipe is easy to make and also loads healthier (and cheaper) then the granola […]
