Vanilla Daydreams

View Post

This idea came to me in a daydream.

I was sitting in my Uni lecture (last lecture of the term..whoop whoop!) and I was thinking about how I’d never made sweet potato soup before,

I think my obsession with soup started when after I made that amazing butternut squash soup ..which obviously gave me a slight obsession with developing creams (hence my basil & vanilla cream creation)..but I don’t think obsession is a bad thing, if it leads to something productive..

Basil is bitter. My initial thought was to add sugar, but then I thought the flavour would just clash to much with the sweetness of the soup, so instead of sweet…

I decided to go with fragrant..and if you know me at all, you’ll know I’m never lacking in vanilla ..I felt like vanilla had a shy sweetness to it that could offer unique flavour ..& boy was I right

It tasted & looked like a daydream

Characterising Crepes

View Post

I had an essay due that i was finding hard to complete.

I needed some sweet inspiration

Crepes are my go to comfort food (before i my bf bought me a waffle iron- yass!)

Salmon was on offer at my local, so it seemed like the perfect fit.

 

The process was quick (which was just what i needed)

The result was delicious (which was just what i needed)

Creamy sensation

My bf bought a blender!!! Excitement x 1000! The unfortunate realization that i didn’t have a food blender and so was unable to try out a butternut squash soup recipe led to my creation of my stuffed butternut squash 

I live in an ethnically diverse area and i have the cutest little food markets around which supply fresh (& cheap) food..

Finding butternut squash was fairly easy.

The whole process was so easy & simple no one could mess up this recipe..

All you need to do is boil, sit back & watch..

 

 

I made a batch of my thyme ‘n’ butter bread to accompany..the result? A creamy sensation.

Sea Bass dreamin’

View Post

My Kitty looked so sad today, so i spoilt him with some fresh salmon

Before of course i realized i potentially fed him my dinner *thinks about all the salmon recipes she can no longer make*

I did a huge shop for my vegetarian diet earlier this week & bought a load of fish naturally..

I’d never tried sea bass before so of course curiosity caught me

This recipe was a great healthy kick start to my long day at work

……But i must admit i got cocky and decided i was too good to watch the new potatoes on the heat (and decided to hop into the shower) …“quel dommage”….Overcooked by 5 mins, regretted for a lifetime

This recipe took me about 35 mins (including plating up) ..Almost made me late for work but boy would it have been worth it

 

Sweetbread sweetness

View Post

Came home from uni absolutely famished. I made a point of seeing how long i would last without pigging out on a £6 panini.. long story short it seems my self control is getting a lot better (Ten points to Gryffindor!! )

I still had some sweetbread left from when i made the spinach & pomegranate salad so i decided to make a creative sandwich.

My initial idea was french toast (minus the ridiculous adding of sugar) because sweetbread is already..well..sweet (one would never have guessed..). I had some fresh spinach chilling in the fridge which i was eager to use before the sell by date (because as a student there’s nothing worse than being poor and watching your food go off)
