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

First, let me begin by saying I used to hate onions with a passion. The taste, the smell, the watering eyes; I just didn’t get it. My first good experience with an onion was an onion ring, but I rationalized that the only reason it was tasty was the deep fat fried batter. Because everyone knows once you deep fry something it’s just better.

Last week's Shepherdess Pie had me really interested in mashed potatoes... In an effort to not eat basically the same thing two weeks in a row, we're going to reinvent the concept of mashed potatoes with mighty millet! And cauliflower!

October is the only month that I can tolerate a lot of pink. I do like pink, but I refuse to like things just because they are pink. (Pink does stink, afterall.) As you probably noticed from the influx of pinkness everywhere, it’s October - breast cancer awareness month.

I live in a small apartment. My bedroom is so small that the wardrobe doors crash into the foot of the bed every time I open them. This lack of space, combined with my love of clothes, means that I have had to master the art of the wardrobe sort out.What was once a chore has become an event that I look forward to – wading through piles of clothes and creating order where chaos reigns supreme. It is a chance to get on top of life, to rediscover forgotten treasures and bid farewell to it...

It is officially fall; neither the calendar nor the weather can deny it any longer. Apples and pumpkins seem to be the stars of the show lately, so I decided to showcase a delicious recipe that is perfect for cold fall days where you need to spend a few hours inside. The first time I made this I decided it’s a handheld form of apple pie but with more crust. The crust is my favorite part of apple pie so for me this is a win-win. It’s the perfect crust:filling ratio AND IT FITS IN YOUR H...

Through my Googling efforts, I believe "shepherdess pie" is the correct name for a meatless Shepherd's Pie. If that's not right, I apologize, I'm not British. I've never actually had any version of this dish until I attempted it over the weekend. Boy was I missing out!Ingredients
