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 […]

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 […]

Protein Pancakes

Courgette cakes are always a favourite of mine as […]

Gooseberry and Almond Cake

My work colleague Anamaria kindly gave me a box of gooseberries she picked […]

Strawberry ‘Tiramisu’

It’s been a while since I last posted as the summer’s been busy so far. However, this weekend I had a little down time and therefore the chance to make something to share with you, a strawberry tiramisu – well, sort of anyway. There’s no alcohol or coffee in this tiramisu and as I wanted to […]
