Diwali Biscuits

Happy Diwali to all that are celebrating this year 🙂 Making biscuits for Diwali is one of our family traditions. Whilst it may not be something you associate with Diwali, it’s something we always made alongside all the spicy snacks and sweet treats. My Mum and I would make biscuits every year and hand them…

Strawberries and Cream

Who is enjoying Wimbledon this year? I absolutely love watching Wimbledon. I have followed it for years as my Dad got me interested in it and I became more and more hooked. We used to sit for long afternoons eating popcorn and watching nervously as the contestants battled it out. I love how professional the…

Puris and Masala Eggs

This is possibly one of my favourite breakfast dishes. One however, that I don’t get to eat often as it was always something that either my Mum, grandma or aunt made. It’s a typical Sunday morning breakfast eaten with all the family. I always talk about how food can bring back nostalgic memories and puris…

Hot Cross Buns – Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to all those celebrating 🙂 What do you have planned this weekend? I realise it’s been a little while since I’ve posted on here. What can I say, keeping up with social media amongst work and home life is tough. I try my best to be present on social media but sometimes it…

Happy Holi!

Today marks the Hindu festival of Holi, the festival of colour! Holi celebrates good over evil and in India is celebrated by lighting bonfires and play fighting with coloured powders and water.

Cherry, Hazelnut and Nutella Pancakes

Dishoom’s Akuri – Spiced Scrambled Eggs

Who doesn’t love scrambled eggs? They are quick, healthy and easy to prepare. Plus they are so versatile. My go to recipe is simple scrambled eggs on toast with a splash of hot sauce. I was flicking through my beautiful recipe book from Dishoom and came across their spiced scrambled eggs recipe – a dish…

Chinese Dumplings

It’s Chinese New Year (or Lunar New Year) today so I thought why not make some Chinese dumplings to go with it? After all there’s nothing more delicious than a dumpling is there? A hot, steamy little parcel filled with delicious and fragrant goodness. I could eat them all day long. Whether fried, steamed or…

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…

Chicken Kofta Scotch Egg

It really is the most wonderful time of the year! I love this festive season. The Christmas decorations, the lights and the old movies. But the thing I enjoy the most is the food! There’s nothing better than mince pies, hot chocolates and clementines. I love baking this time of year, although its a little…
