Chocolate Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Cookies have to be my favourite comfort food. Sometimes a good batch is all you need to get you over those hump days.

Damson and Co., Soho

So I'm a little late to the Damson and Co. hype. It's been all over the blogoshphere and food websites for a while now. but it wasn't until a downpour at London Proud the other week saw us dashing into the nearest cosy looking tearoom in Soho.

So for my first post back I thought I'd show you some adorable Minnie Mouse Cupcakes that I made for my friend Nettie's birthday recently.

Kitchen Challenge: Chocolate Eclairs

It’s time for a challenge. I created this blog as a way to share my passion for baking and cooking with the world, but also to push myself to experiment and try new recipes and ingredient combinations. This month I challenged myself with choux pastry. Pastry is an area in which I feel I can do the basics, shortctust mostly – enough for pies and tarts, but have always been nervous to experiment with. Until now I had associated ├ęclairs and profiteroles as desserts that needed to be bought, not made – I had certainly never dreamed of making them myself.

Fashion Inspiration: Bank Holiday BBQ

So I know this is primarily a food blog but when I discovered Polyvore whilst reading another blog, I knew I had to create a post.

Its such a great website that allows you to browse mood and inspiration boards, design your own, and shop your finds - all in the same place! I am still new to it but so far I am having lots of fun with this new creative outlet and experimenting with everything they have to offer.

So here's my very first creation, following on from my last BBQ post - what I would wear to a bank holiday BBQ. Really this look works for any relaxed, outside event. I am obsessed with a white and blue colour palette at the minute - so clean and crisp, and I think that the gold studded sandals with the straw fedora give it the perfect boho vibe.



I hope to be making a lot more of these but dont worry I wont turn this into a fashion blog! If you do want see the rest of my creations and be kept up to date, follow my Polyvore page: http://bakeitblonde.polyvore.com/

Chicken Cobb Salad

While I love baking all sorts of rich, gooey desserts, every once in a while we all need something healthy. Or at least something which pretends to be. Healthier if you will.
