June 2020

Not sure what 2020 will be remembered for specifically, but there is hope that the protests following another avoidable life lost led to recognition of long  and so this month was spent having difficult conversations, long walks and easing into meeting up with some friends and visiting old beloved spots. How about you friends? What...

May 2020

It’s been almost three months of being locked indoors most days and yet the month of May was deliriously filled with warm summer days, but ended in a striking way in a foreign land that is still leaving it’s indelible mark around the world. Here are some snapshots of my May, one where I was...

Raw Chocolate Fudge

Sometimes when hanging with friends you’ll end up making something together in one of your kitchens and a few years ago, this Raw Chocolate Fudge was exactly the thing we made from a friend of a friend. It was one of the first times we had spent together in several years and yet, like old...

April 2020

Another month where the indoors were the cafe, restaurant, office and everything else in between, but honestly, appreciation and gratitude are what I have most in these incredibly uncertain times. Another thing of appreciation is food, the ingredients to make a variety of meals. What about you? How was your April?

Anzac Biscuit Bars with Cornflake Crunch

Anzac Biscuit Bars with Cornflake Crunch might sound an unnecessary twist on the Austrlian biscuit, but that topping makes these a standout! There isn’t a good way to explain these cookie bars except that they take the beautifully perfect recipe and top with a chocolate crunch that is, well, delicious. There is so much to...

Creamy Parsley Pasta

Very tempted to call this Creamy Parsley Pasta fast parsley pasta or 15-minute parsley pasta, but regardless of the name, this dish is fast and can be made with or without a blender and should be made in one pan because honestly, washing up is not something we should have to spend more time on...

March 2020

Well the year of March is over and what a memorable one it truly was, not in that great kind of memorable way either unfortunately. Our last fun evening out in London was spent doing two things, going out for dinner and then drinks with Mr Brooks uncle and aunt who had planned their visit...

Irish Country Rhubarb Cake

Irish Country Rhubarb Cake looks much more like a pie than it does a cake and for good reason – when you get to the instructions it tells you to have a deep tin or pie dish which means it’s actually a pie and boy oh boy what a pie it is!! I can’t even...

February 2020

One day longer than usual, it felt like a long month in my corner of the world. Stormy weekends meant staying indoors more often than we’d like. Probably the most magical day was the morning it snowed, there’s something so lovely about snow. Overall, there wasn’t much to report, beyond the few things mentioned below....

Orange Creme Brûlée Tart

Orange creme brûlée tart has been swirling in my head for months, but in the attempt to set life up, a blowtorch has been way down the list of necessities and so it just stayed in my notes section with other planned new recipes to make. Full disclosure, we are borrowing our blow torch from...

Chocolate Chai Cream Puffs

A serving of Chocolate and Chai into Cream Puffs made for two is for Valentine’s Day with everyone is sharing chocolate recipes which is all well and good, but to be honest, when I thought about my significant other, he loves a good cup of tea…and he also loves cream puffs, profiteroles and eclairs so...

January 2020

The new year began rather quietly as I finished up my internship prior to Christmas so it was spent looking for a new job (still looking), moving to a much nicer place and working hard on this here blog which I have created a schedule to keep working at. It did involve a few meals...

Third Year Lessons

Today marks three years since Mr Brooks and I said “let’s give this a go” and whilst I am an incredibly private person, I’m also really stubborn and determinedly independent and so other than showing off a few photos of our wedding day last July, I wanted to share a few things I’ve learnt in...

Blueberry Custard Cake

It’s not really the season for a cake like this, but this Blueberry Custard Cake is one of the best reasons to break eating seasonal for one day. With a gluten free base and a rustic custard and fresh blueberries mixed through. It’s unlikely you’ve had a cake like this before. One of the best...

December 2019

Another year and decade is over. Just typing those words is hard because time has begun to move quicker and sometimes it feels overwhelming so I’m not going to talk about intentions or do a summary of the past decade, but I will say twenty nineteen was a challenging year and also a year of...

November 2019

Overall November was two things in our house, full on with recipe testing when not working and caring for a husband with bronchitis and not getting much sleep whilst working full time. There were no new posts despite my recipe testing because they just weren’t quite right so back to the drawing board it is....

October 2019

There were glistening moments of beauty in October, but it was also a hard month with a busy work schedule and keeping a tight budget due to my job. The month began though, with a trip to Tallinn, Estonia and it was a beautiful trip which will be shared here shortly, where I also consumed...
