7 Food Blogs You Should Be Following

11355013_1610860165869645_1394471396_nYou might have noticed that I’ve been a bit absent around here over the past couple of months. To be perfectly honest, I’ve been struggling to keep on top of regular posting alongside everything else. I absolutely love creating and sharing recipes on here, but I never want it to feel like a chore and lately it’s started to.

I’ve got no plans to hang up my apron just yet, but I am going to take a little break from sharing new posts for a few weeks. I’m hoping that taking some time to relax and enjoy being in the kitchen without the pressure (self imposed, I know!) of turning every meal into a post will get me excited about cooking again.

In the meantime, here are a few of my favourite food blogs that you should definitely check out!

Cinnamon Sponge Cake + Brown Butter Frosting

cinnamon sponge cake brown butter frosting recipe

The making of this cinnamon sponge cake has taught me several things: 1. Brown butter frosting is pretty much the best thing ever 2. Autumnal flavours make for amazing cakes 3. Trying to smooth frosting over a cake with no gaps is virtually impossible and has confirmed that bake off is most definitely not in my future! This bake was initially going to be a Read Post

Baked Salmon + White Wine Cream Sauce

Heeey, it’s been a while hasn’t it? Every time exams come rolling around I promise myself I’m going to be mega organised and have posts scheduled but I think it’s high time I accepted that I am just not that person. Soz guys. Anyway, time for food! This baked salmon recipe is one that I made as part of the Waitrose eating organic challenge so Read Post

Red Wine Lamb Ragu

Sometimes, after a long day, the only thing that will suffice is comfort food. Good, carb-heavy, rich comfort food. This spaghetti topped with red wine lamb ragu is exactly the kind of thing that hits that spot. This saucy, meaty dish is kind of like an upgrade on regular bolognese. Lamb has a much more robust flavour than beef, which means it stands up well to the Read Post

Kale Cauliflower Cheese

Today in “how to make a superfood super unhealthy”: smother it in cheese! Heh, I’m joking, I’m joking. This kale cauliflower cheese is actually one of my favourite healthier alternatives to mac n cheese. It’s got all the cheesy indulgence of the classic but with more veg & less stodge. Meaning there’s plenty room left over for dessert This recipe is one that I made entirely Read Post

A Week of Eating Organic

IMG_20150912_113837 (2)

Today’s post is all about buying, cooking with and eating organic ingredients. To celebrate The Soil Association’s Organic September campaign Waitrose challenged me to switch to organic ingredients for one meal a day, for 7 days. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll no doubt have seen some snaps of what I’ve been eating! I have to be honest, I’ve fallen into the habit of eating the Read Post

Smoked Haddock Sweet Potato Hash

This, my friends, is the ultimate guilt-free comfort food. Soft sweet potato, smoky haddock and an oozy egg for extra indulgence. This smoked haddock sweet potato hash ticks all the boxes: packed full of veg + protein to fuel your body, light yet filling and – most importantly – delicious! We absolutely devoured it (seriously, it was gone in about 5 minutes!) for dinner a Read Post

Chicken Chorizo Tacos + Avocado Salsa

If it were possible for a type of food to be your soulmate, Mexican would be mine. Honestly, I’m never not in the mood for Mexican! When I’m struggling for inspiration and want something relatively easy to knock together, it always wins out. These chicken chorizo tacos are my latest dinner obsession. If you’ve got a well stocked spice rack, the spice mix is quick Read Post

Cherry Amaretto Ice Cream

Hey there, it’s been a while eh? The past few weeks I’ve had an unintended break from blogging which has actually been kinda great. Don’t get me wrong, I love this little space but I tend to put a lot of pressure on myself and it can all get a bit intense sometimes. Spending less time on social media and more time catching up with friends has done me Read Post

A Summer Picnic


One of my favourite things about summer is the longer, lighter nights. Granted, there aren’t too many chances to sit out and enjoy them in Scotland, but when the sun does make an appearance I jump at the chance to spend an evening outside. I was recently sent some fantastic sparkling wine from Waitrose Cellar, so Ricky and I packed ourselves a little picnic and Read Post
