A Broke Girl’s Millionaire’s Shortbread Cups

Catching July on the cusp, here I am. I’m currently working with a lot of cookbooks and so I thought I would try to get back into baking (I haven’t really baked since the last post on here, would you believe?) and bake an actual recipe without playing with it too much? I still added cinnamon to cut through the caramel layer, but I followed Nadiya’s recipe to a tee from her new book otherwise. Looking forward to Continue reading

*Filipino inspired* Ube Yam Cheesecake

Hello. How is it already February? My last post in January seems like it was eons ago. After a mini hiatus after a lot of Christmas baking, I’m back with a new kinda flavour that I’ve only had a handful of times, mostly in Korea. It’s a hard flavour to find, but thankfully Continue reading

Labor Day Loaf (dairy-free, gluten-free, no refined sugar)

August is coming to a close and soon autumn will start creeping upon us. University has already started in the US and I’ve been watching the new freshmen move into their dorms and my roommates into their houses and it’s been painful. I’m counting down the days until Continue reading

Turning 21 with a Vegan Chocolate Birthday Cake

It’s pure fate that I left America at the bitter age of 20 and turned 21 here. 21 in England is only a milestone age because it came across the pond from America, you can’t do anything new. In America, 21 is when the world is suddenly Continue reading

California raisin protein granola (dairy-free, sugar-free, vegan)

I’m always on the lookout for healthy recipes and my sister suggested we make granola because it was easier and cheaper than buying the stuff, with half the sugar too! So I figured, why not make this a ‘Cali themed’ post with some healthy, refined sugar free granola, made with jumbo oats, protein powder, pecans, walnuts and california raisins. I find eating sugar makes me hungry again really quickly, while this granola is a lot more wholesome and filling, and makes a Continue reading

Nutella banana bread

Low Fat Banana Bread with gooey Nutella centre

A lot of things are going on in my life at the moment. My end of year exams have now finished *phew* and I am working and exercising more than ever! I’ve also been busy sorting out visas for the US, and making plans for my impending 20th birthday. Basically, my life is being turned upside down as a lot of things come to a close, and new opportunities arise. I still can’t quite believe that I’m going to spend my third year studying in America!

Baking has always been my Continue reading

The 1,1,1,1 cup coconut creation (Vegan, Dairy free)

Um, hi. I know it’s been too long since I last posted anything here but with my hectic christmas baking and non stop working to pay the rent, time has been a little more precious than usual. I think we all know the feeling of collapsing into bed after being run off our feet all day. I neglected the gym (which is my life’s staple apart from baking), I ate far too much chocolate and food, and I lazed around. If I give you cake as an apology, do you think you have it in your hearts to forgive me? Please? I’ll give you a nice big slice 😛
