I would make slow cooked oatmeal every morning if it didn’t take so long. I’d make instant oatmeal every morning if it wasn’t way more expensive than regular rolled oats and was made in the exact flavors I like. If you agree with me on both those points, well let me introduce you to baked oatmeal, friend! I baked up a big batch over the weekend and I’ll have perfect oatmeal all week long! I just pop it in the microwave for as long as it takes to brush my teeth and bingo, it's breakfast...

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I decided for the month of November all my recipes would be things I love to eat during Thanksgiving. In the States, Thanksgiving marks the official beginning of the Holiday season. It’s mostly an excuse for everyone to be gluttons for a day while watching American football. I hate American football, but I LOVE all the food. Thanksgiving in my house is a carb orgy and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Today was the perfect fall day. A crisp morning followed by a sunny afternoon that set the colors on the trees ablaze. The days of cozy sweaters are upon us, and I felt we needed an equally cozy soup to go along with such a wonderful day.
This was the first time I ever made this soup and it is absolutely delicious. Even my husband, a known soup hater, kept telling me how good it was. This soup would even make a great base for a yummy clam chowder too.

Whilst the sound of ice rattling against the sides of a cocktail shaker has to be one of the most exciting I can think of, autumn is the time when my mind turns to hot drinks. Hot alcoholic drinks to be precise.From Halloween onwards, my mind turns to mulling. The urge to mull any alcoholic liquid becomes overwhelming. Experience has shown that it is best to stick to the classics and mull only red wine and cider. But there is a world of cockle-warming fun to be had with the remaining c...

It’s high time for pie time; pumpkin pie time. Miniature pumpkin pies to be exact. Yes, you read that right, mini-fucking-pies.Let’s be honest for a moment, shall we? I have an obsession with miniature things. The little girl in me squeals with delight any time I see something that has been shrunken to a perfect hand held size.

My house is looking more and more like a Willy Wonka dream than a place to live as I'm trying to churn out close to 150 truffles by Friday. It was fun for a while, then tiring, then annoying, then oddly relaxing. While I'm riding out the oddly relaxing wave I thought I'd share one of the recipes I'm rolling up.

There is something spectacularly old fashioned and homey about a big bowl of pudding. Give me some pudding with whipped cream and I'm instantly transported back to the imaginary 1950s Americana diner -eating upbringing I did not have (see picture). Ingredients2 cups almond milk4 tablespoons corn starch or arrowroot powder

There's something about autumn that makes me want to bake. There's also something about baking that manages to stop me being in a vile mood. This week has been pretty autumnal and I've been pretty cranky, so it was only right that I spent last night baking.My "go to" recipe for such times is Nigella Lawson's cream cheese brownies, from
