As a busy working mother of two children and a rambunctious toddler, I tend to prefer simple meals that can pass as another meal in the day. This helps me streamline my meal planning and also allows for a bit of meal juggling when the constant unpredictabilities of parenthood strike. Some days are a struggle (understatement) and my lunch meal plan goes out the window along with the lunchboxes and ingredients my toddler feels so […]

Bagels are a very special bread that originated in the Jewish communities of eastern Europe as far back as the early 1600s . These special breads are first boiled prior to baking, which makes them chewier and with a lovely, shiny crust. Bagels have always been one of my favourite treats, next to doughnuts, of course. About a decade ago I toyed with making bagels risen with yeast. They were delicious but I didn’t make […]

  Things may seem rather quiet around here, but I can promise you that the quietness on my blog is a reflection of the busyness in my life and the chaos in my head. I have found the jump from two kids to three mind boggling. It is exhausting, relentless, and tedious at times. Conversely it is also wonderful and fun and hilarious. But if I am to be honest, more often than not, I am overwhelmed. Postnatal […]

  Photography by my lovely friend Virginia Woods-Jack I get mighty excited about making bread. It is my favourite fermented food and I never tire of watching the dough rise slowly throughout the day or the smell it creates during baking. I love how unique each loaf is when it is finished baking and pulled from the oven. Over the past couple of years I have slowly saved up and purchased a few bread-making tools […]
