Simple Almond & Vanilla Biscuits Topped with Cacao

Today’s offerings; simple, delicate biscuits and fading flowers.

The weather yesterday was all over the place here in Scotland. We had brightly shining sun accompanied by rain, snow, hailstones and some rough winds. The temperature also dropped a bit and our home had quite a chill. I knew there was a long day ahead of us come noon so I baked these biscuits in the morning to bring a little joy.

Lighter, fluffier and more delicate than biscotti but just as good for dipping in your tea/coffee/whatever-you-like

Brazil Nut Soft Cheese

Happy Sunday!

Yesterday was Earth Day, a day dedicated to celebrating this planet. In an ideal world, we would celebrate our beautiful world and all it has to offer every day; by making conscious decisions and by being full of gratitude.

Even my mum who is a very well-known coffee-cake-hater said that is was GOOD. So, I’ll take

The Super Simple Pizza

I don’t just like pizza. I love pizza. There has been quite a few (OH SO MANY) attempts at making a good, thin, crispy, gluten-free, vegan crust in our kitchen. A crust that obviously tastes good, has good texture and it needs to have some serious structural integrity for all of those toppings. We now have two bases that we rotate between that work really well (hallelujah)!!

This post isn’t about the toppings. It is all about that base (and a simple tomato sauce as well because

Ginger & Sage Lemonade

It is most definitely Spring here. The sun is shining, little bumblebees are flying around and the herbs in my window boxes are looking super happy and bright. It felt like time to bring some of that sunshine into the kitchen. This was the result; a delicately sweet, lemonade with a herbal twist and a bit of heat. It’s like sipping a glass of all of my favourite things. I can already see many variations of this being made in the weeks of spring and summer to come (I recently made a
