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…

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…

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…

Chilli cheesy pasta

Today, as I’m writing this, it has rained, non-stop, all day. Even my roof is leaking because of it! 😩 so this evening I decided we need cheesy, carb-y comfort food to warm us up! This meal is quick, easy and uses stuff you usually have in at home anyway. It’s the lovechild of your…

Pizza Dough & Craft

It’s me again. This time we woke up sunny Sunday morning and decided that it was time to make our own pizza. We had never made one before, but after Ellie’s bread lecture with Creative Mornings, we were feeling inspired! My friend Kat, who is a teacher, chef and a great cyclist, kept on telling…

Belly of the Easter

It is a little bit of a throwback to Easter, but I thought that it might be worth writing about this. I have been in England for almost 7 years now, but coming from the east, I never experienced the same Easter meal as I would back home. You know, that one, like Christmas. Where…

First things first

A month or so ago, Augustinas had the idea that we could put our food obsession and creativity to good use. He cooks and bakes, I enjoy creativity and language, and we both spend the vast majority of our time eating out at restaurants and cafes around Sheffield, so why not combine forces on this…
