Adaptogenic Rose Latte

The rain has made a comeback. This change in weather has me craving something extremely warming and soothing. As I have said a million times before, I love making drinks. So, obviously this was going to happen. With each sip of this latte I could feel the tension leave me. The gloominess and the rain becoming more poetic and moody than frustrating because there should be sunshine. The mix of ingredients I used here make for a nourishing, wholesome and very luscious, frothy drink. Rose is read more

Date & Pecan Scones

Guys, I have your lazy weekend breakfast/afternoon tea situation sorted – because the weekend is almost here and I like to be prepared! Get into the kitchen, preferably still in your pjs, pop on some good music (I would suggest some Bowie, as I always do) and get baking. I promise you it is a lovely way to wake up to your weekend.

Fennel & Cucumber Juice

Any tea with fennel in it, I?m a fan. I find the taste incredibly grounding. It?s one of those flavours that just tastes like it must be doing you some good.

In this juice I?ve tried to balance out that flavour with some read more

Red Cabbage & Asparagus with a Caesar Style Salad

It feels like it has been quite a while since I last posted something on here. It’s only been just over a week but I felt like I had gotten into a routine of creating and sharing with you on a very regular basis and I was enjoying it. But my life got a little busy and a little hectic and then I got very drained.

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. read more
