Is there anything better than salted caramel and chocolate all wrapped up into one incredible creamy cheesecake? Nooope. Last week my parents returned from holiday with a huge Toblerone for me, so I figured it was high time I tried my hand at a pretty special Toblerone salted caramel cheesecake.
Say hello to my new favourite salad: the toasted almond and parmesan kale salad with a zingy, ever-so-slightly-sweet lemony dressing. This is the stuff of all my lunch dreams right now.
For once I’m sharing a fresh, summery recipe when it actually feels like summer outside! I reckon that requires a celebration. One involving gin + tonic ice lollies, preferably. Speaking of summer though, this Italian tuna steak would actually work perfectly on the BBQ so if the sun sticks around you should totally get on that!
Hello, it’s been a while eh? I thought we could have a little catch up on where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to over the last few months. If you’re only here for the food and have zero interest in my life then consider this fair warning 😉 As some of you may know, I work as an actuarial trainee which means that, Read Post

Happy New Year! Can you tell there’s no January detoxing going on here?? We actually ate these vanilla buttermilk waffles on the last day of 2015 but I plan on making them again asap! Last March Ricky got me a waffle iron for my birthday. Who wants jewellery when you can have crispy, fluffy waffles at your fingertips every. single. day. Erm, just me?? Anyway, Read Post

I’m baaaack! I couldn’t resist putting together at least one festive recipe post so here’s a little something to tide you over until the new year when I’ll get properly back into the swing of things. Christmas baking is one of my absolute favourite things about the festive season. Things can get a little crazy around this time of year though, and sometimes you just Read Post
You 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 Read Post
