Almond Caramel Apple Shortcakes

Today’s post is proudly inspired by Mary Berry. If you’ve never heard of her, firstly, do you live under a rock? Secondly, I’d like you to Google the Great British Bake-Off. I’ll give you a moment to catch up with the rest of the world before coming back to this post. Are we all on…

Tandoori Spiced Halloumi Skewers with Mint Sauce

Halloumi definitely goes on the list of things that I wish I’d known about earlier. It just compliments everything I put it next to. Try these Halloumi And Veggie Wraps on for size. Then come back and make this recipe and try and tell me that halloumi is not magical. I have many things planned…

The Best Pasta Sauce

It’s really funny how this one came about. At the end of last year, my dad brought home about 30 tomatoes. No joke, my kitchen was overflowing with this bright red fruit (vegetable?).

Vegan Millionaire’s Shortbread Bars

I have big news for you all: I HAVE A BLENDER! Shout out to mummy for recognising the struggle that was my culinary life without a blender. I honestly don’t care how broke I am in college, as long as I have a blender to cuddle at night. I think it’s only fitting that the…

Salted Caramel Iced Coffee

Coffee – the only reason why anyone ever gets up in the morning. My morning routine usually finds me reaching for a cup of black coffee to calm my nerves, and lately I have just been looking for a way to make it a little more interesting. Enter iced coffee. My first experience with iced coffee…

One Pot Browned Butter Short Rib Ragu

#hastalapasta I’m going through something that can only be described as a “Pasta Renaissance”. Or a Pastaissance if you please. I’m moving out of the dark ages, into the light known as a pile of hot spaghetti topped with savory meat sauce. You can say that my life is going pretty well right now. The…
