Tanya Bakes and Chocolate Chip Shortbread

I am a bit of a nerd.  This I definitely know.  I was probably doomed from the age of 5, at which point Star Trek became my favourite TV show.  I had my own uniform and communicator.  I have strong views about the political system of Star Wars.  My biggest regret from my wedding is […]

S’more Brownies

The end is near. The end of my PhD is approaching.  Which means that I’m both elated to see the light at the end of the tunnel and unbelievably nervous about making sure that it’s perfect.  I’m doing a lot of back and forth between America and London at the moment – bursts of study […]

Cookies and Cream Blossoms

Pain au Chocolat Cinnamon Rolls and Christmas Recipes & Crafts

Christmas dos are an inevitable part of the Christmas season – I work at a comedy club on weekends, so I see people out and about at work parties (as well as crammed onto the tube in the evenings!)  And Christmas parties can be fun, but for me, the best kind of holiday party is […]
