Apricot and Pistachio Loaf

There's nothing more satisfying than the smell of freshly baked bread at home - especially on a miserable rainy weekend. Now having said that I don't actually do much baking bread at home mostly because I find it a bit time consuming - not because of the actual getting your hands dirty part of the … Continue reading Apricot and Pistachio Loaf


London – Art, Food, Art, Food…

The other loves of my life - art, food, and friends. It's amazing how much you can squeeze into 2 1/2 days of London; x1 crazy uber experience, x5 exhibitions, lunches, dinners, catch-ups with friends, cakes, coffee, cocktails, ice-cream, markets, and many cups of tea! Here's a few highlights from our trip... 1. RAUSCHENBERG exhibition I … Continue reading London – Art, Food, Art, Food…

Viennese Whirls

Unlike baking a cake there's no accuracy in the amount of ingredients here. We … Continue reading Mike’s Pork chop crumb bake


I’ve Scone Crazy

This recipe has since been the soul to all … Continue reading I’ve Scone Crazy


Carina’s Cake

For those who don't know me Carina is my soon to be 5 year old niece. As expected I always put my hand up for making her birthday cake, as well as her sister's, my sister's, and any other family members really (except for my other half Mike -oops! But how can I possibly surprise … Continue reading Carina’s Cake


Short but Sweet

A short introduction to my self discovery... My parents are both diabetic and Chinese (great opener for my first post right?!) so growing up I was never really exposed to any home baking or treated to puddings post dinner. My sister and I grew up with chocolate bars from the corner shop or the odd … Continue reading Short but Sweet
