The Ultimate Pumpkin Loaf

The Ultimate Pumpkin Loaf

One of my all time favourite YouTubers is Kalyn Nicholson. I always watch her videos when I’m feeling down, or uninspired, or lazy, or complacent… She’s relatable and always inspires me to do better and work harder and be a more productive and confident person and adult. I also love that she doesn’t rely on […]

Vegan Bubble-Tea DIY!

Vegan Bubble-Tea DIY!

My old coworker taught me a neat trick last year to instantly (well, almost) have dairy free bubble tea! She’s lactose intolerant and would buy a plain black tea with bubbles, followed by a soy milk from the convenience store, pour that soy milk in and voila! I’ve been doing this ever since, however bubble […]

Chocolate Custard Tart

Chocolate Custard Tart

{Guest Post} I find there is nothing more comforting than sharing a cup of tea and a sweet treat with my friends. I think the tradition started in boarding school; every afternoon two big pots of tea were brought to our common room, accompanied by a tray of eats. We huddled around the table, sipping […]

Super Moist Vegan, Gluten Free Banana Bread

Super Moist Vegan, Gluten Free Banana Bread

Back when I ate gluten I kept a few banana bread recipes in my arsenal. One, the ultimate comfort food – our mainstay as kids it was rich, moist, very banana-y. A classic! Next, a cake-like textured banana bread with less fat (think the one usually served at cafes), and one more that was passed down to me […]

Easiest Fudgiest One-Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes Ever!

Easiest Fudgiest One-Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes Ever!

I mean it these are so easy! They’re also quite near and dear to my heart already, because when I first made them I’d been craving chocolate cupcakes for a while and initially just whipped them up with what I had at home. That first attempt resulted in just about your perfect standard chocolate cake (think […]

Sugar Free Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Sugar Free Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Seoul is getting a lot more snow these days and although it never sticks (in the city at least) it reminds me that it is indeed winter! Sometimes I forget… Partially because of the lack of snow and also because it’s not nearly as cold here as it is back home this time of year. As […]

Some New Years Reflections, and Banana Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Some New Years Reflections, and Banana Chocolate Chunk Muffins

During my week off over the holidays I learned a lot, but I think the most important lesson I took with me is the need to slow down and relax. I’ve never had that much time to sleep in, and take my time, and do exactly what I want to do every day. It was […]

No Bake Triple-Layer Raspberry Squares

No Bake Triple-Layer Raspberry Squares

I recently found frozen raspberries at a foreign food market in Seoul. This may not seem like anything significant to you however a) raspberries are my favourite fruit of all time b) they’re extremely difficult to find here c) there is a Korean version which is okay for some things and I do enjoy but […]

Vegan Gluten Free Moon Cookies

Vegan Gluten Free Moon Cookies

The holiday cookie craze has begun! Lately I’ve been in the holiday spirit and with Christmas approaching (just a month away now) I’ve begun to revamp my favourite holiday recipes even more. We called these Moon Cookies as kids due to their shape but they were originally called Almond Crescents or something along those lines… Anyway they’re delicious […]
