Restaurant Shoot

I love shooting restaurants and cafes. There’s something about the hustle and bustle of a restaurant that makes my job so much fun. Restaurants are very similar to a swan; calm and relaxing to the eye but what you don’t see is all the hard work underneath the water. As customers, we don’t always see…

Lemon Meringue Pie

It’s British Pie Week and I am here for it. Is there anything more comforting than a pie? There is something very special about pulling a hand made pie out of the oven, whether sweet or savoury, it’s simply joyous. I love a savoury pie, from the classic chicken and mushroom or my recent vegetarian…

Cherry, Hazelnut and Nutella Pancakes

Happy Pancake Day! I’ve been writing pancake day posts on my blog for a few years now and I seem to always mention that I love English pancakes. And it’s still true, I do! What’s not to love? Thin pancakes that are soft in the middle and a little crispy on the edges, ready for…

Mussels and Fries

Mussels are in season right now and up until a few years ago I had never tried them. I was never great at trying different shellfish apart from prawns and lobster (especially after a bad experience with an oyster!) However my husband convinced me to try them one day on holiday in Canada and I…

About me

Welcome back! Is it a little too late in January to say happy new year? I think so. Whoops! Regardless, I hope you all had a great break over Christmas and New Years. As you may have noticed, I took a longer break than expected from blogging and social media. I decided to switch off…

Roasted Sweet Potato, Feta and Walnut Salad

Who says salads are just for summer? I love a salad but prefer something warm during these colder days. And after indulging too much recently with Diwali and birthdays, I could do with something a little bit lighter. This is a great mid week meal and is hardly even a recipe, it’s more of a…

Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls

Happy Halloween everyone! Now although this is not exactly a spooky Halloween post, it’s inspired by the flavours that everyone is enjoying at the moment. Isn’t Autumn just beautiful? Look at these gorgeous leaves we found around our house. I just love the colours. What is Pumpkin Spice? I started to see pumpkin spice everywhere…

Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love to bake but sometimes I think my waistline could do without it. There’s nothing wrong with a little cake, but if I can make it a little lighter I will. I’m not a huge fan of over complicated recipes that ask for strange ingredients to make it healthier. Also I’m a little bored…

Coconut, Raspberry and Hazelnut Brownies

I absolutely love to bake. There’s something very special about mixing a few ingredients, popping it in the oven and seeing it transform into something warm and delicious. I used to bake a lot but recently struggle to find the time to do so. I have been attending lots of weddings and have been eating…

Wild Garlic and Smoked Salmon Fishcakes

Wild garlic is in season and seems to be the craze right now. And so it should be, its delicious! I’m lucky enough to have a mother in law who planted some wild garlic in my garden and it’s growing so well. No thanks to me, I have zero gardening skills. Maybe one day I…
