Cranberry & Orange Scones

Despite the months long silence, I am still here! Having moved to Berlin where I started photographing for someone else’s blog I have very much neglected my own little blog here but I don’t want to quit bringing you sweetest brunch ideas just yet. So I will try to get back into more regular posts […]

Summer Berry Bircher Müsli

I was recently working in the offices of a newspaper that had a staff canteen. As well as lunch, they also served breakfast which is a great thing, when you’re running a little late in the morning and don’t have time to make any food, which, of course, never happens to me… It’s can be […]

Crumpies

It’s been a bad week for Britain. The Brexit vote brought a lot of racism and ‘idiocracy’ to the country I have lived in for most of my adult life, so much so that I think it may be time to move… Luckily I’ll always have some good memories of Britain too, many of them […]

Orange and Almond Cake

Valentine’s Fromage Frais Waffles

  Happy Valentine’s Day… To be honest, I’m actually not much of a Valentine’s Day fan. Having grown up in Germany when it wasn’t yet a thing over there I can still happily do without the rather commercial fuss.  But I decided to use today’s date as an excuse for a breakfast of heart-shaped waffles in […]
