Delicious Cinnamon Buns

Even though I’ve been into baking for a few years now, I’ve never tried baking cinnamon buns before. Which is a surprise because I love them! Receiving the Cinnamon Buns kit from Bakedin gave me the opportunity to try my hand at making some. My favourite part was when the house filled with the aroma… Continue reading Delicious Cinnamon Buns

Pancakes with Chocolate and Strawberries

A bit late to the party, but can finally get around to sharing a picture of these delightful pancakes that my boyfriend arranged to be sent to me for Pancake Day.

Pear and Frangipane Tart

Supporting the Homeless with Mince Pies

These almond frangipane mince pies were a real treat. Delightfully festive, with a twist on a traditional favourite, they taste great with a glass of mulled wine (or mulled wine tea).

Eating My Way Through London: Figo, Stratford

This pizza from Figo in Stratford deserves a lot of love. I tried it way back before lockdown 1, so it was a bit of time ago, but it’s stuck in my memory since. Figo is a great little Italian place in East London, with a vibrant atmosphere. The pizza was excellent, so flavoursome and… Continue reading Eating My Way Through London: Figo, Stratford
