My Favourite Easter Recipes

To me, Easter is a special time of year. I always feel the transition of seasons strongly in April. Summer is transitioning into shorter, cooler autumn days. Mangoes and peaches are out, but apples and pears are now in season. This new season coziness just makes me want to get in the kitchen and bake. I have a crazy urge … Read More

Mini Chai Poached Pear Cakes with Chai Creme Anglaise

Autumn and the transition of the seasons always makes me want to get into the kitchen to cook and bake. I don’t even mind washing up if it means I can warm up my perpetually cold hands! There’s absolutely nothing better than the warming spices in a cup of chai on a cold afternoon. I seem to have a habit of … Read More

No Knead Hot Cross Buns

I love baking, but I don’t often make my own Hot Cross Buns at Easter time.

Flourless Orange and Almond Cake (Gluten Free)

At this time of year I would usually be elbow deep in cinnamon roll dough with warm spice aromas coming from the oven and filling my apartment.

I never thought I’d see the day when flour and … Read More

I love the smell of yeast, sweet spices, and delicious aromas coming from my oven. I love the whole process – mixing, kneading, waiting, rolling, baking. It’s totally therapeutic, one of … Read More

Raspberry and Ricotta Baked French Toast

On Monday I burned my sweet potato fries to a blackened crisp. On Tuesday, my laptop just wouldn’t start up and much freaking out ensued. On Wednesday, I was caught in a freak downpour walking home – soaked right down to my underwear. Can I just say that things have not gone to plan lately. I could blame Mercury in … Read More

Mini Choc Malt Marbled Bundt Cakes

I had so many ideas for great Easter recipes this year, but in the last few weeks time completely got away from me. So I’m hopping (get it?) in here very quickly with a few days to go before Easter.

Simple Dinners 20 / Slow Cooked Lamb with Homemade Hummus

Entertaining was one of those things that used to completely stress me out. I’d literally spend days changing my mind about the menu, go to the grocery shop without a list and forget a crucial ingredient. I put so much pressure on myself to get everything perfect that I would rarely enjoy my own events, and my kitchen has seen … Read More
