Hazelnut cake with chocolate glaze

I’ve been going a little bit barking baking mad lately. In addition to having an ever growing ‘to-do’ list, including some important PhD reading and writing I have struggled to get around to, I also have a small project on the burner that means I have to put in some serious kitchen time – trialling […]

DIY Macadamia Nut Paste

A while ago I wrote a post for some energy balls that contained macadamia nut paste. A reader asked whether she could make her own, as she was unable to source some locally. Yes, making your own paste is easy. And as an added bonus, it generally works out cheaper than buying it ready made. […]

Corn coriander rainbow salad

Did you know that you can eat corn raw? I remember finding that out only a few years ago when I saw a girl at uni munching her way through a raw corn cob as she kicked back on the grass. What a revelation! I grew up eating corn cobs that went from the bag […]

This is one of my favourite breakfasts to cook when I have the pleasure of being able to make a leisurely start to my day. It takes about the same time as to make a bowl of traditional oat porridge but has the benefit of being higher in protein and gluten free. Quinoa is actually […]
