Day 178 – Made Grissini

Just a quick scroll through my done list will show how much I like baking bread: there's been sourdough (still not nailed this), baguettes, hot cross buns, and lots more. There's something so satisfying and a bit magical about making bread out of just four ingredients and seeing it all come together in a smooth… Continue reading Day 178 – Made Grissini

Day 162 – Pickled radishes

Sometimes I buy vegetables and only use them once or twice. Even though I mostly meal plan and make shopping lists, I sometimes shop with my stomach.

Day 130 – Plated dessert

One of my brilliant friends, Gerry, is a food genius. She constantly makes the most amazing food (she was even on Bulgarian Masterchef!), but her speciality is desserts and cakes.

In an effort to make my way through my cookbooks, and the food… Continue reading Day 110 – Made naan bread

Day 90 – Made hot cross buns

I was due to fly home to the UK just after Easter, and obviously, that isn't happening now, but I had made a rough(long) list of all the things I would eat when I was there. Chocolate is key over Easter, and I had my eyes on some Cadbury's Mini Eggs, as well as some… Continue reading Day 90 – Made hot cross buns

Day 83 – Made chocolate orange cake

Every time I go back to the UK I return with a Terry's Chocolate Orange: that obviously won't be happening for a while, so I was left a bit stuck when a craving hit today. With nothing new planned, and a desire to comfort bake, I turned to my saviour Nigella's How To Be A… Continue reading Day 83 – Made chocolate orange cake
