Hi friends! Oh my lord it is hot – or at least, it was when I was writing and pre-scheduling this post, which I suppose was sometime last week for you. In real-time, I’m currently en route to Bologna, likely thinking about the aperitivo I’ll

Today’s post is about more than just Rhubarb Panna Cotta – it’s kind of a big deal. Today, April 27th, is the blog’s birthday. Four years ago today, when I was sitting home alone trying to avoid studying, I decided to set up this little

Okay, lets talk ice-cream. Leave the dirty dishes, the laundry, the family members, just leave everything for a few minutes & listen to me ramble on about ice-cream. In my humble opinion, I believe ice-cream is one of the best things in the food world.

Don’t you just love having time? I kind of forgot how awesome it was, what with exams & college & work all piled up on top of me. However, things have (finally) changed. As of today, I am officially finished my second year of college.

Hello friends! I’m back on my old recipe refurbishment train and this time it’s with a golden oldie: Lemon Cream Tart. Making its blog debut way back in May 2013, this recipe was first introduced to me by my ex-boyfriend’s mom. She used to make

There was an abundance of cream in our fridge the other day. I’m talking ten 250ml pots. All of which had to be used up within two days. We set about making desserts to freeze. My mum made a Lemon Cheesecake, a Praline Coffee Swirl
