Lemon Ciambella

Hello everyone! It’s been a journey to make an authentic Ciambella. After scouring the internet and watching countless Italian recipe Youtubers, I finally got the right recipe to share with you all. Ciambella is the perfect coffee or snack cake, it’s not overly sweet or too soft where you would need a plate and fork…

Roasted Heirloom Tomato Pie

When tomatoes are in season and at their peak of deliciousness, I try to use them in as many ways as possible. My favorite are the heirloom variety, especially those larger red ones that have more flesh on the inside, meaning they have a lot less seeds and jelly than you’d find in a regular…

Extra Crispy Baked Fish Tacos

These baked fish tacos are THE best and absolutely fool proof. I’ll confess here and now that I made these without issue after a virtual happy hour in which I had two pretty strong margaritas! Hence the lack of photos lol. (More to come, after I make these again) I am always searching for recipes…

Obscenely Chocolatey Chocolate Cookies

Since Easter, which was cancelled, I have been craving chocolate; specifically Cadbury mini-eggs. Seems like after the toilet paper, lysol wipes, hair dye and flour shortages the obvious next things to go were Cadbury mini eggs of course! Weird. Anyway, this post has nothing to do with mini-eggs but it does have a lot to…

BA’s Smash Burgers

So what’s a smash burger? Well, ever been to Shake Shack? ‘Cause they’ve got smash burgers and after I tried one for the first time, a couple of years back on a trip to the US, it changed my hamburger eating life forever. Now I’m obsessed with this style of burger. The patty is thin…

Bao Buns at Home

How would I describe a Bao bun to you if you’ve never had one? I’d say that it’s light, fluffy, pillowy, a little moist and highly pleasurable to eat! It also doesn’t hurt that Bao buns are best paired with fatty meats and sweet and spicy flavours, such as sweet and crispy-skinned Peking duck, pork…
