Quick Midweek Supper: Toast Hawaii

If you’ve grown up or lived in Britain, chances are you will be familiar with ‘beans on toast’, that quick stop, put-together-in-minutes supper when you’re short on time and everyone is hungry. My kids loves baked beans – especially the little one, he’ll eat a whole tin if you’re not careful, he doesn’t even wait […] Read more…

It’s National Cereal Day today, believe it or not, so what better excuse to share another of our favourite breakfast recipes with you! As you can probably guess, it’s a recipe for a breakfast cereal.

Family Favourite: One Pot Chicken Alfred

It’s time to share another one of our quick, easy mid-week, family favourite meals with you. This recipe actually comes courtesy of my husband, it’s one of his signature dishes!

Orange & Almond Cake (GF)

What better excuse than National Almond Day (yes, it’s a thing!) to share one of my favourite recipes with you! Almonds are great for gluten free baking, because recipe with ground almonds often don’t require flour as sell, eliminating the need for cumbersome substituting. This cake is a particular favourite, because it’s lovely and moist […] Read more…

Cranachan – our fave Scottish dessert

So, it’s Burns Night tomorrow! As true Scottish expats, we’ll of course be celebrating here in Berlin. And besides haggis, neeps and tatties, there’s one dish that will be an absolute ‘must’ on the menu – Cranachan!

Homemade Flavoured Popcorn

Apparently it’s ‘National Popcorn Day’ today. I’m not entirely sure in which nation, but hey, any excuse to eat popcorn! And to share my favourite popcorn recipes with you.

Sunday Sweet: Banana Oat Waffles (GF)

So, at the end of last year I bought a Belgian waffle iron on a whim. It was on sale at our local supermarket. We already own a German waffle iron, which makes delicate heart shaped waffles (my vanilla waffle recipe is perfect for it), but there is just something about big, chunky Belgian waffles. And […] Read more…

Courgette, Sweetcorn & Mushroom Bake

I don’t really go in for New Year’s resolutions, but one of my goals this year is to try and add some new recipes to our family repertoire, so we are not always cooking and eating the same few dishes. This courgette, sweetcorn and mushroom bake resulted from a little bit of experimentation, and I’m […] Read more…
