Poland – Rogaliki

Happy New Year! It’s been a little while, and so I’m a little behind schedule now, although to be fair so is the government with actually deciding on what we’re going to do about Brexit, so it’s all good. We’re at Poland now. I have eaten a good amount of savoury Polish food, but I’ve…

Brexit Baking – an introduction

In a little over the year, the UK will be leaving the EU (or at least that’s the plan currently). 29th March 2019 is so-called ‘Brexit Day’, the day where we are no longer tied to the EU and can make all of our own decisions as an independent country that is woefully unprepared for…

2014 – a year of baking

Well, once again this is a bit late due to essay writing. But now I am finally done, and apart from having to go to work the next three days, my Christmas break has officially started! I didn’t manage to bake anything new or exciting this week though (predictably), just more gingerbread, and some brownies…

Ginger and Lemon Biscuits

Uhhhhhh… I think I just found my favourite biscuit EVER. These are so beautiful. If you like ginger biscuits, these are even better. The hint of lemon is just wonderful, and it works really well. I’ve been drinking a lot of herbal tea recently, and when I was feeling a little under the weather the…

Cranberry-Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

This week has been my reading week, which naturally meant that I got ill, because I needed to spend my time writing essays. Typical. On the bright side, Taylor Swift’s new album ‘1989’ came out, which I have been dancing to all week (in between sneezes). Time is flying by, and now that Halloween has…

Peanut Butter Cookies

I’m pretty sure these are my favourite thing I’ve baked so far this year. It’s been ages since I’ve eaten peanut butter. When I was younger it was always my first choice for spreading on toast and in sandwiches, because it was the best – crunchy obviously, cos who wants smooth? (I was going to…

Honey Nut Biscuits

Another busy week is almost over. Once again, I made these a few days ago, but am only just having the time to write about it now! My original plan to make apple and courgette cake changed into honey nut biscuits, and so, here we are.    These biscuits are great – although not entirely…

Black and White Cookies

Continuing on the theme of cookies… In November 2008 my sister and I visited America for the first time. It was an eventful trip – we visited 3 cities in 13 days, and during the time we spent in Chicago we watched the election results roll in, and saw Barack Obama’s victory speech as we…

Maple Oatmeal Cookies

So, I’m on a bit of a cookie phase at the moment. A couple of months ago it was flapjacks, now it’s cookies. The difference being that whilst there is only one flapjack recipe for me, there are literally hundreds of cookie recipes that I want to try out. What with all my current porridge…

Meeting Deb!

Okay, so a number of things have happened since I became incredibly lazy and stopped posting on here for over a month: 1. It got cold enough that I can now eat porridge for breakfast. 2. I baked another upside-down blackberry cake, oatmeal cookies, and courgette crisps and probably other things that I forgot about….
