Soy and Sesame Crispy Baked Tofu

Well, this is a little bit exciting for a gusty May Wednesday afternoon. Not only have I been out for lunch (shock), purchased a big slab of takeaway Victoria sponge (even bigger shock), but here I am typing out my first savoury recipe that has nothing to do with breakfast, brunch or flapjack (mind blown).Continue reading “Soy and Sesame Crispy Baked Tofu”

Fruit and Banana Oat Sachet Flapjacks

It has been an absolute hot minute since a homemade banana based flapjack has graced my taste buds. Can you believe it? Well, do not fear my fellow overripe banana loving friends because this hiatus was swiftly grounded to a halt this week, bringing a very Monday-ish Monday, to a glorious end. Detouring into aContinue reading “Fruit and Banana Oat Sachet Flapjacks”

Pulses: Lentils, Beans and Peas that Pack a Punch

If you had asked me ten years ago, “Leanne, we would love you to write a blog all about the wonderful world of pulses”, I would have politely responded to you with two questions. The first questioning, “what exactly is a blog?”. Shortly followed by the second and probably more obvious, “I’ve heard of thisContinue reading “Pulses: Lentils, Beans and Peas that Pack a Punch”

Spiced Carrot Cake Baked Oats

Yep, you read the title right; I have jumped onto the extremely long bandwagon of baked oats. Well, I actually boarded said wagon a month or so ago, fell off it briefly, but climbed straight back onto the front seat this week and guided it perfectly into my mouth. To be honest, when I firstContinue reading “Spiced Carrot Cake Baked Oats”

Pear and Chocolate Oat Cups

What a week and a bit it has been! First, it was national pizza day, which I shouldn’t even need to explain how great a day that is (I really, REALLY love pizza). Next up, it was pancake day, or days in my case. Savoury, fluffy American style pancakes the day before to prepare (obviously)Continue reading “Pear and Chocolate Oat Cups”

Banana, Raspberry and Almond Flapjacks

Jump to Recipe I will be totally honest; I am not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day. If you know me, you know that I have two favourite things surrounding this celebratory day of all things love and smush. First, the food creativity and offerings we get surrounded by like a big squeezy bear hug;Continue reading “Banana, Raspberry and Almond Flapjacks”

The Bay View Bakehouse Christmas Eve Box: From Burpees to Brownies

First things first. Yes this is a Christmas throwback and yes, I realise we are now well into January, but everyone loves a bit of Christmas any time of the year, don’t they? If you disagree, I do apologise for what is about to follow, but only a little bit. If there is ever aContinue reading “The Bay View Bakehouse Christmas Eve Box: From Burpees to Brownies”

Fluffy Vanilla Pancakes with Banana and Raspberries

I have this weird thing where I very rarely eat a whole banana in one sitting. I know, weird right. Don’t ask me why, but it is definitely a thing; half a banana sliced onto warm, cosy porridge, or placed lovingly on top of a crunchy peanut butter laden piece of wholemeal toast, or moreContinue reading “Fluffy Vanilla Pancakes with Banana and Raspberries”

Curry in a Hurry Delivered by Blights

I love a curry and believe it should definitely be a weekly meal of every household. With so many varieties of curry to choose from, from a wealth of different countries and regions, it’s no wonder it is one of Britain’s favourite dishes. Besides, the legendary dish of chicken tikka masala was born in Glasgow.Continue reading “Curry in a Hurry Delivered by Blights”

Hearty and Healthy Hummus

Pass the carrot sticks, pepper pieces and cucumber slices (or crudités if you are feeling particularly posh on this fine Thursday morning) because it is time to tip, blitz and dip. Add to that a few slightly salted, crunchy tortilla chips and you have yourself a set up worthy of a party, if we wereContinue reading “Hearty and Healthy Hummus”
