Fig and hazelnut cake

March 18, 2016

1

I know figs must be back in season because I recently received about 2 dozen of them in my parent’s latest care package. This coupled with the leftover hazelnuts from the previous post, led to this cake. I’d paired figs with hazelnuts before so I was pretty confident the combination would work in a cake form. Then I came across […]

Hazelnut and chocolate baci

I’m feeling sufficiently bad for being MIA for so long, but trust me when I say there is a good reason for this. I always have reasons. As old as this joke is, it is true, I’ve been embarking on the biggest bake off of my life. There is a bun in the metaphoric oven. […]

Coriander and cashew dip recipe

Just a quick and easy recipe for as we’re approaching the weekend (yay!). This dip/condiment is great to have around the house. You can call this a ‘coriander pesto’, but it feels a bit incorrect since pesto specifically refers to a basil based blend. It’s like calling a pear and chocolate cake a ‘pear jaffa […]

Eating well on weeknights can be hard, Monday nights are especially bad. You’ve hardly recovered from the weekend, it’s been a long day at work and by the time you make it home for dinner, all you want to do is lie on the couch and mentally prepare yourself for the next day. Who can […]
