Sugar free peach galette

Summer salmon pasta salad

Garlic & herb bread

I think I’d like to start every post about bread by saying that I love bread. And I must say, this one is a very, very good one and it comes with a warming: if you are cooking for a few, underestimate how much bread each person will eat; we had it between two and…

Healthy(ish) chocolate chip cookies

Dark chocolate and pistachio knots

Saturday is treat day for me and this week has felt a bit too long and tiring so last night I thought I would prepare something nice and tasty for breakfast. This knots follow the basics of cinnamon rolls, but since I absolutely hate them, I thought I would make something different. They don’t take…

Profiteroles: a step by step guide

Profiteroles are a dessert that I never used to like. I think it’s because I used to buy them and they came cold (for obvious reasons) and when I ate them they always felt a bit wet and soggy, but my boyfriend loves them, so I decided to try to make them for him. It…

The weather is finally getting better with the sun shining and the air getting warmer and that has got me in the mood for some lovely summery dishes. I always feel like having more vegetables when the weather starts picking up. I can also feel the days getting longer which is making me so happy,…

Salmon, apple and gorgonzola toast

I would like to start this by saying that this is one of the best flavour combinations and you can’t change my mind. That said, here’s some more things on toast for a lazy day very late breakfast. I actually love this combo on a salad too, but I bought some fresh sourdough, so this…

Healthy 3 ingredient pancakes

Whipped ricotta, almond butter and strawberry toast

How is it Saturday again? This week has gone by so quickly I fancied having something quickly and tasty for brunch. This week has been a bit hectic, since why I have been so quiet in here, that to be honest, I don’t feel like doing much, I just want to sit on the sofa,…

Today I have made what I think has suddenly become my favourite soup, it’s full of flavour, rich and warm, perfect for this weather. It kind of happened randomly, it’s snowing here in London so we went out for a walk and when we got back I really fancied soup to warm me up, but…

Homemade Focaccia

Am I allowed to say this is the best foccacia recipe out there? Ok, maybe I am overreacting, but I am honestly in love with this recipe for foccacia and the whole process of making it fascinates me. I must say this early on that if you are looking for a quick recipe, this is…

Mini pavlovas with berries

I have to start this post by saying that I absolutely love meringue but I used to find it so difficult to make that there was a point when I almost hated it. Anyone else felt the same? I think I had about 5-6 failed attempts until I succeeded and that moment when I did…

Dark Chocolate Brownies

It’s Friday again so I thought I would share another chocolaty Friday treat. Last Friday I shared a lovely and easy blondie recipe and after doing it, I went on Instagram and realised it was brownie day, which I had no idea about. I guess a blondie can kinda count as a brownie, right? Anyway,…

Welcoming this very snowy Sunday with a lovely zesty lemon and pistachio cake. I think I may be a bit obsessed with pistachios lately as I keep wanting to put them on everything I do. Not helping myself when I do that, I don’t seem to be able to find them shell-less anywhere so my…

Vegetable lentil stew

So this is my dad’s super yummy vegetable lentil stew which I grew up eating and I absolutely love. My dad grows his own tomatoes at home, so he used to make a big pot and then we would freeze containers with it so we would have enough to eat when we didn’t have home…

As I have mentioned before, soup is my favourite winter dish and this mushroom soup in particular is my most favourite soup. It’s got everything I like, mushrooms, carrots, rice and a little bit of cheese. It’s also super quick to make, just need to prep the veg and then let them cook and it…
