American Pancakes Recipe

Once again I’ve explored my love for America by again making one of Joy the Baker’s recipes and found my new favourite recipe. Me and my houses mates have formed a tradition for our university days – weekend pancakes. Normally slightly…

Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

This time of the year, the blogs and especially American blogs are all showing off what they can do with pumpkin or some sweet potatoes. Being from the UK, I can’t say we embrace the Autumn produce as much our…

Homemade Marshmallows Recipe

Saturday shall now be called Marshmallowgate. I try to be a caring friend and think there should be marshmallows for everyone in the world. So when I started out to make some fluffy, lighter than a cloud marshmallows, I bought especially…

Lime and Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

Some things remind me of dinner parties my parents held when I was younger. Elizabeth Shaw Mint Crisp Chocolates (that would be leftover from coffee and me and my brother could have one for breakfast). The smell of my mum’s…

Homemade Gherkins Part 2 Recipe

So back in May time, I made for the first time some glorious gherkins and said I would post some pictures of them after they’ve had their 2 months hibernating away in my cupboard. I realised it has been longer…

Tequila Spherification Bubbles Recipe

After recently experiencing Taiwanese Bubble Tea, I’ve become quite interested in using different textures to create an unusual take on the dish or drink.  Spherification is the process of shaping liquid into pearls, the most common method of doing this a liquid is mixed with sodium alginate…

Banana and Peanut Butter Loaf Recipe

Chocolate and Cherry Cupcakes Recipe

The joyous time has come around again – PUDDING CLUB!!! It’s been a while and not as regular as we had hoped when starting it but never mind when a cake is involved!  We had more eaters than bakers this…

S’mores Cupcakes Recipe

Homemade Gherkins Recipe

To quote a close family member, fellow blogger and amazing friend, ‘you like to make weird stuff, not the usual foodie things.’ I kind of agree but think if I did make just the usual things all the time, I wouldn’t half the Food…

Homemade Lemon Curd Recipe

My copy of Nigella Lawson’s Domestic Goddess cookery book is wrecked. It’s not from a lack of care or love but due to being a source of great baking wisdom and recipes that work time after time. One of my…

Homemade Nutella Chocolate Spread Recipe

Pinterest. The new social media for people aspiring to cook better, have glossier hair and to find funny pictures of cats in bread. For people who haven’t tried it out yet, it is a site that acts as a huge…

A Weekend in Bruges, Belgium & Chocolate Brownies Recipe

This might sound a bit big-headed but I’d like to think that I’m unique and don’t always follow the trend to some degree. But when it comes to loving chocolate, I’m a sheep.  Since a young age, chocolate was amazing! Any form…

Sticky Toffee Pudding Cupcakes Recipe

Okay, confession time. I have a lot of cookery books, okay not a lot, a hell of a lot. It’s an obsession and I need help. Hello, I’m FoodNerd and I have a cookery book problem. Especially lots of little…
