Home Bakery – Pain au Chocolat

I’ll be honest with you – it takes a while to make these. Not really the effort, more of a waiting game. But at the end, it’s worth it. Personally I am not a biggest fan of a dry pain au chocolat, which you usually get in most super markets and coffee shops. Unless you…

Home Bakery – Focaccia

I have never resisted Italian food and I don’t just mean pasta. There is so much out there and so much yet to explore. Maybe it’s the way Italians make their food or maybe it’s how much love & passion goes into it. But lets not get wrapped up in the Italian love drama. Lets…

Veggie Mushroom Meatballs

You’ll have seen from our last post that since moving into our new place, we’ve been making quite a bit of homemade food! This year will hopefully be a year of real exploration of vegetarian and vegan food for us. What I’ve found so far is that vegetarian and vegan food definitely doesn’t mean less…

Vegan Shiitake Gyoza

Hi! It has been a while since our last post as we had a few changes and had to regroup! First of all the Pinksoupblog crew moved in together and you might have already heard that we became vegetarian and will aim to provide you with delightful vegan/vegetarian dishes. On top of that we have…

Smells Like Cinnabons

So I am a big fan of Ikea. I suppose this is how confession starts. Every time I had a chance I would go for cinnabons and meatballs. This is my type of comfort food. And it is cheap! But as the time passed, I realised that I can easily make cinnabons myself and to…

Bagels 4 Ways

It was a Friday night, the start of a bank holiday weekend, Augustinas had his last day at his current job, we were going on holiday in a week’s time. Basically, we were in great spirits and we had our good friend (and old colleague of mine) Amy coming round for dinner. We thought about…

Rainy Banana Bread

Rainy day. Most importantly Monday. On a rare occasion you have a nice day. But not this Monday. Ellie is 22 and she just had chicken pox. For the past year I have been nick-naming her with food names. One of them was banana bread. So just to make her chicken pox a bit more…

Pancake & Jam Weekends.

A colleague and a good friend of mine Nanouschska made some crazy delicious jams and I managed to get a hold of blackcurrant and rhubarb! Without any doubts this was an opportunity to make grandmas pancakes. While spending summers at grandparents house, we would get these every week! Being a farm and acres of fields we would have everything fresh and even jams would be…

Pad Thai

  For someone that never really enjoyed Asian cuisine much, I really have been feeling inspired to make Thai and Chinese dishes recently! I think it’s something about summer – I start craving fresh crunchy vegetables and fragrant spiciness. This time I gave Pad Thai a go, which is a meal I’ve eaten quite a…

York & Pasta Colorata

Hi all! This weekend’s adventures take us to the beauty of York. We sampled wonderful food and watched Tour de France, but we’ll leave that to a whole other blog post! What I want to focus on here is the delicious Mediterranean dish we made at the end of the day, inspired by our purchases…
