French Madeleine Cookies Recipe

So, there is a special someone that I need to impress with bakery/cookery prowess tomorrow. No, not the boyfriend as I’m not seeing him till majority of my assignments have been handed in as I don’t have the time for a social life right now. Sigh. At any …

Easy Peasy Squeezy Pepper Chicken Recipe

Okay, I lied. There’s nothing squeezy about this recipe! Got home from uni at 1pm and was starved, so I wanted something warm, comforting and filling. Not including time taken to prepare the chicken, I am a chicken nazi – I’m terrified of the fat in the skin. …

Basic Muffin Recipe

So, after Lisa posted about her Chocolate Espresso Cake with Caffe Latte Cream, I went into chocolate craving mode. Which, for me, is quite serious, as I’m actually not a chocaholic. I’ll have chocolate maybe 2-3 times a month, and the rest of the time I’m quite happy …

The Best Simple Pancake Recipe

I love pancakes – their light, delicate texture, warm out of the pan drizzled with maple syrup and topped with fresh fruit, they make a completely decadant breakfast. Unfortunately, the only people who eat pancakes/pikelets/crepes in my house are myself and my brother, so I don’t make them …

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

One of my earliest and fondest memories of being in the kitchen is of when I was barely tall enough to reach the counter top in the kitchen, and I had to sit on the counter in order to help my mom. She used to bake these wonderful …

Almond Shortbread Cookies With Jam Recipe

When I was a child, I always loved the little jam tarts that you could buy in the cookies section of the supermarket. Small, crumbly with very jammy jam, I could never manage more than 2 or 3 due to the intense sweetness, but I enjoyed every bite. …

20 Minute Banana Cake Recipe

I’ve been furiously trying to finish a research assignment for class these last few days, but don’t seem to be having much luck. During one of my hair-pulling sessions this evening, mom ‘politely’ pointed out that we had 4 bananas which had gone squishy and black skinned. In …
