I have what may seem a slightly odd question for you today. Do you have a recipe journal? No? Then why not? I do, and this is why… In this age of Pinterest, blogs and Instagram, recipe journals may seem a little redundant but in much the same way I will never give up books for a Kindle (even...

My Favourite Easter Recipes

I can’t believe it’s just over a week until Easter! I am so excited! I have to say, after Christmas, Easter is my favourite holiday. I think it’s because, for me at least, it’s all about family. Preparing the food in the days before, painting eggs, waking up to find a trail...

Recipe: Sesame Seed and Salted Pretzels

I made these a couple of weekends ago for the Super Bowl (yes, I am Brit that watches American Football #deal). It was the first time I had ever attempted pretzels but my word were they delicious! I used a combination of different recipes to create this one, so I thought I would share them with...

Recipe: GF Raspberry Banana Bread

Rebranding this little space as The Bookery has really pushed me back into baking. I mean this can’t be an online version of my bricks-and-mortar store if I don’t do any baking right?! And I am LOVING it! My waistline (and Mr S’s) not so much, but thankfully, most of what I make...

Favourite Summer Recipes

I don’t know about you but the minute the temperatures start to creep up and the sun is up before 5.30am, the last thing I was to do is spend hours slaving over a hot stove. And that’s saying something coming from someone who loves cooking as much as she loves books! When summer arrives...

Happy Monday loves! How was your week? I’ll be honest, mine was a little stressful. New job overwhelm but watching Baywatch on Friday (if you haven’t seen it, go NOW!), dinner with friends on Saturday and baking yesterday was exactly what I needed! For years, I have been trying to make...

All About The Carbs

Happy Thursday lovely! You know those weeks when all you want to do is eat carbs? Yeah, I’m fighting my way through one of them. I’m going to blame it on the Super Bowl (#PatsNation), okay?! If you’re struggling to get through the winter and all you can hear is carbs whispering...

It’s officially the shortest day of the year and the weather has definitely started to turn. Last weekend we had one heck of a storm and though the skies are back to blue, the mercury is dropping. We’re down to 9c this weekend! Yes, I know, for most people that’s not cold, but for...
