Homemade pizza

This dough recipe is veggie, vegan and dairy free. Ingredients (dough only): 320ml warm water 1 packet dried yeast (7g) 500¬†g strong white flour Olive oil…

Spicy peanut noodles

Oh Donal Skehan you genius,¬†this recipe was absolute magic. SO¬†tasty and fresh, and so so easy & quick too. Unfortunately, the only noodles I had was spaghetti, and I was too impatient to wait until I’d gotten better ‘noodles’ to make this dish with. In any case, everything still turned out delicious! I’ll leave you…

Falafels

I saw this recipe x by Foodbycamilla¬†aages ago, and made my first batch back in September, and my second batch last week. They’re absolutely delicious! Super easy and really cheap. (Perfect student food.) Here, I’ve altered the recipe a little more to my tastes (e.g. doubled the spices as I like mine pretty¬†spiced), but thanks…

Tips for: roasting vegetables

If you want a little twist on some regular, seasoned vegetables, add a drop of red wine vinegar to your roasting tray (about a tbsp, along with your cooking oil). It gives a beautiful sweet-sharp tang to the veg and keeps them beautifully juicy and flavourful.

End of my SpiceBox adventure

So, I finished up my time with SpiceBox last week, ¬†and it was a bittersweet ending. I’m happy to be moving on to other things and enjoying my summer, but of course sad, as I made such great friends, had great (and also low!) times, and made so many amazing memories. I’m sure it won’t…

Herby flatbreads

I saw this recipe X the other week and HAD to try it out! I’ve been looking for a quick flatbread recipe for ages, and this was just perfect. Baking powder instead of yeast means there’s no waiting time for the bread to prove; simply mix together the ingredients and then bake! I doubled all…

Courgette ribbons

Hopping on the ‘courgetti’ boat a little late, but better late than never … ? After so much hype and excitement about these courgetti, I wanted to see what all of the fuss was about. Now, I don’t own a spiraliser and I didn’t plan to get one¬†just¬†to use once for courgetti, so I followed…

One pot pasta

This recipe really is a minimal-effort dish. The only things you’ll need are a chopping board, a pot and a measuring jug. (Maybe scales, if you’re not comfortable with guestimating.) I based my one-pot off of Donal Skehan’s recipe X which he based off of Martha Stewart’s recipe.. It’s so easy to add and change…

Garlic hasselback sweet potato

Watching the Sorted boys’ video (here X) on Hasselback potatoes really got my mouth watering, but I think my heart gave a little hiccup with the amount of fat, cream & cheese they slathered on to theirs (granted, they were very aware that it was a ‘special treat’ type food!), so I wanted to try…

SpiceBox adventure

So recently I applied for (and got) an internship at this start-up food company called SpiceBox (website here x). Grace, the owner, let me jump in on her summer menu food photo-shoot, since she knew I was interested in photography, and food photography. It was a pretty cool¬†day, very chilled, and I learned a couple…
