Classic Chicken Soup

Chicken soup has been scientifically proven to be good for you when you’re not feeling well. It hydrates and nourishes, while being neutral enough not to be thrown back up immediately. For a lot of us it’s as much as psychological remedy as it is a physical one though. Chicken soup calls up memories of…

The Week The Turkey Drove Me Nuts

I don’t know how all of you across the pond still eat turkey after seeing countless recipes with it on social media and being stalked half to death with how to’s, dinner party tips and tricks, grocery lists and just endless thanksgiving stuff. Of course, I didn’t grow up with it so I don’t know…

The Dairy Free Guide to The Holidays

The holidays can be a stressful time. You want to enjoy this time with your family, but you know that they’re not used to cooking without dairy. You don’t want to insult anyone by not eating their food, but you also don’t want to feel like hell after dinner. I see several solutions in several…

The Week Of The Month Before It Gets Crazy

I know, that’s a long title. Every year around halfway through December is when everything kicks into overdrive for my family and my mum (used to) nearly die of stress. We would have my sisters and brothers birthdays just before Christmas, two days apart and of course no way were they celebrating together. Then two…

Cottage Pie

I read a lot about food. I’m not kidding, if I could I would watch one-minute recipes the whole day (but what’s with all the cream cheese guys, seriously). Anyway lately I’ve found more and more stuff that is classified as ‘comfort food’. That makes sense. It’s getting darker and colder and we’re going towards…

The Week It Got Cold

Just kidding, it never really gets cold here, but I had to wear long jeans twice this week (I know, it’s insane). I’ve heard lots of stories from friends back home who are starting to get cold. Tuesday I’ll post all about my solution to that. For now I’d like to walk you through my…

Pear and Cranberry Oatmeal Bake

When I taste pear and cranberries I know that autumn is upon us. They’re the ultimate combination that makes you feel warm and cozy while the temperature is dropping outside. This oatmeal bake makes it even more homey especially when served warm on an autumn morning.

The week after Halloween

This week tomato was prominently present in my cooking. From cherry tomatoes in the Gyro bowls to tomato soup and tomato based chickpea curry. The nice thing about tomato, though, is that it is so versatile. I never got sick of cooking with the tomato, or eating tomato, and I could buy a bunch of…

Cauliflower Pizza

A little while ago everyone was going nuts over the cauliflower pizza base, because it’s low in carbs and made out of veggies (yay). When I started to look into making it I realised that all of them are made with tons of cheese. There was my challenge: work out the cheese. The cheese doesn’t…
