Happy 2nd birthday Elena

It’s New years eve and people are getting themselves ready to ring in the new year, celebrating with friends and loved ones. Some people are running around worrying about canapes and whether they have enough drink for their parties, others are quietly enjoying a night in with their families at home, choosing outfits, applying make…

Raspberry and almond scones

Lately the majority of cooking going on in my kitchen is all to do with baby food. Trying to come up with a decent selection of food my little one will eat and more importantly like, is actually harder than it sounds. But Every so often, usually on a Sunday, I get a few hours…

Raspberry and white chocolate loaf

Now that the days are brightening and the sun is shining a little more regularly, it is time to start reflecting that in our food choices. Everybody is turning to healthy salads and soups and eating less comfort food. Apart from me that is. I might be using more fruit in my cakes and less…

Six months on

For most people, six months means very little. For parents, it is huge. At the beginning you start by counting the days, then the weeks and slowly that progresses into months. Today marks six months since our little girl was born. That is one half of one whole year!!! In one way, it seems likes…

Gluten free berry and almond tart

So today I’m going to share a little bit about me. I have been working in the hospitality industry since I was 18. I have worked in some really great places and it all started with my first job while I was in art college as a waitress in a hotel bar. I loved it…

Just in time for Valentines!

In an effort to gear myself up to make traditional macaroons, I have been playing around to come up with a coconut macaroon biscuit that works and that I wouldn’t be embarrased to post on my blog. What I thought would be an easy task, was so far from just that. Every and any recipe…
