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. I have numerous cups of herbal tea a day and there’s usually at least one blend with some fennel in there. It has a liquorice taste which I know a lot of people might find a little difficult to take, it can be one of those love it or hate it things. 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.

I’m an introvert, a highly sensitive person and that means I need time to re-charge quite often. Being an introvert, for me, means that even if I adore the people I’m read more

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

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. The world can be a scary place (that sentiment seems especially true right now) and there are many things we cannot control. However, the little things we can control or have influence over are there and we should do our best to make decisions that benefit read more

Brazil Nut & Espresso Loaf

I’m not a coffee drinker, at all. Ever. But I do really love cake or chocolate that’s infused with coffee for some reason. So, when Steven requested some sort of coffee cake/loaf this week, I was like sure! The classic combination of coffee and walnut is always a good idea but I decided to mix it up a little and sub in some brazil nuts in place of the walnuts. It was a good idea.

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