Originally posted on THE SENTIENT BAKER:
These are rainy day cookies. Cookies for when both supplies and moral are running low. A simple tumble of ingredients baked into a melting, chewy crumb, rich with hazelnuts and cocoa. I love how the tops crack in the heat, creating nooks and crevices for a snow-like dusting of…

French Onion Soup Burger

Originally posted on Wish to Dish:
Fusing together the cuisines of two cultures is not a new idea – the more I read about cooking I learn that we have been borrowing techniques, ingredients and recipes off each other for years and re-imagining them in our own contexts. Today I add this recipe to a…

Green Chicken Burgers

Gnocchi Bolognese Bake

Originally posted on Wish to Dish:
Bolognese, pasta bake, gnocchi: three of my most nostalgic, cozy comfort foods. When the three are combined? Pure heaven. This is not fine dining, this is not “healthy eating” and this is certainly not a speedy supper but it is a great example of food’s ability to warm your…

Cheese And Bacon Puffs

Loaded Halloumi Fries

I posted a photo of these halloumi fries on my Instagram several weeks ago with a promise to share the recipe on here ASAP and then completely forgot to do so… Therefore I offer my apologies for the delay but better late then never right? The creation of this…

Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Brisket

Originally posted on Cooking Up The Pantry:
This photo really doesn’t do this recipe justice but to be honest the beef was eaten so quickly I only got the one shot! I’ve taken the principles of using a rub with herbs and spices to coat the meat and then allowing it to sit for 12-24…

Peanut And Lime Chicken Wings

Originally posted on Cooking Up The Pantry:
In my house the boys go through real fads with what they will eat on their toast! One of them went through a spell where lime marmalade was his spread of choice but it has gone out of favour so I wanted to use the leftovers up, coupled…

This post is quite the mashup of things. For starters, these cupcakes are made using a black velvet recipe, which is DIVINE! I was quite determined to make a recipe using black velvet this Halloween season, and sadly for my waistline I liked this recipe so much, there is a…
