Best ever guacamole!!!!!!!

The blond likes guacamole, he’s Californian after all so it’s hardly surprising. He told me that I make Mexican food far too well for someone that comes from London…I’ll take that as a complement. Now this guacamole is super simple – 4 mushed avocado, a pinch of salt, juice from half a lime, 1-2 small […]

Magical Tomato Salad..

Last night I got really hungry and having read my friend’s blog, really craved a refreshing Italian style salad. I looked in fridge and found two punnets of cherry tomatoes, a small clove of garlic, fresh basil and over ripe avocado. I washed and quartered the cherry tomatoes, chopped a small clove of garlic and […]

Pimientos de padron….

Pimientos de padron are a little green pepper indigenous to Spain. They’re considered the ‘russian roulette’ of veggies  as about one in ten (or some say one in thirty) are spicy, but the others are mild.  As the saying  goes ‘Os pementos de Padrón, uns pican e outros non.’ This means ‘some are spicy and some are […]

Coconut Cream.

I have always loved coconut and cream. In fact a world where creamy coconutty deliciousness existed was somewhere that I wanted to move to. So when I realised that vegans had been making whipped coconut cream I rejoiced. Then I tried it and it failed. So i tried it again and lo and behold it […]

Candied Peel…The trauma of it all.

DELICIOUS homemade juice

Bruschetta which is then recycled into Panzanella

I have a confession to make, I spend far too much money on food. It’s a problem I think. Partly fuelled by the desire to have the most stocked cupboards in all of St Andrews and partly because it comforts me. I enjoy knowing that I can feasibly whip up any meal I choose. This […]

Revitalising Smoothie!!

I am in the middle of exams and occasionally need an un-caffeinated boost (though I have one coffee per day so it’s not bad to be honest!) I figured since it’s very warm in London I’ll start eating a little bit more raw. (This is actually only possible today because I’m blending a smoothie and […]

Sell your shoes aubergine dip. (It’s that good.)

I cannot explain how much I love this, in fact I used to have severe cravings and have made friends eat Lebanese food at all sorts of crazy hours. I’d never actually figured out that it was incredibly easy to make and provides a pretty healthy delicious, dip for lunch or snacking. Aubergines or eggplants […]
