Neapolitan Cookies

I have it on good authority (my nanny) that as a child, my favourite after daycare treat was a scoop of Neapolitan ice cream.  I can definitely believe that, as I am still an ice cream addict.  But over the past 20 (well, slightly more than 20), I have become far less of a supporter […]

The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook and Cinnamon Toast Cake

I love to see that so many amazing bloggers are writing cookbooks – blogging is a chance to continue to improve your writing, test new recipes, find the perfect lighting set up in your kitchen.  It’s a chance to flex some creative muscles that aren’t necessarily present in other parts of our lives.  And for […]

Blueberry Crumble and the Jersey Shore Cookbook

Anyone familiar with the news this week knows that it’s a bit of a hard time for London – the uncertainty has been very scary, especially for those of us who aren’t British.  I love London, but it’s heart-breaking when friends (from the EU originally or even outside) feel like for the first time, their […]

Review: Maple and Maple Morning Glory Muffins

It’s stormy weather on both sides of the Atlantic – snow and rain mean that I’ve done a lot of snuggling up by the fire while my cat naps (the cutest napper on the face of the earth.) But February is a month for snuggling up (it’s all I can do to drag myself to […]

Cookies and Cream Blossoms

I say it every year, but it’s so true – the beginning of January can be super depressing.  My cat, McNulty, has no interest at all is doing anything but curling up in a ball and staying warm (under the radiator, on the couch, on the bed) – he doesn’t have much motivation to be […]
