So the cool kids at Joy The Store set me up with a challenge to cook up a recipe from their Nutella recipe book especially for world Nutella day. Naturally; challenge accepted.

Spicy Red Pepper & Chorizo Sausage Rolls

Baking, Basil, Chilli, Chorizo, Comfort Food, Garlic, Pastry, Sausage, Sausage Rolls, Shallot, Smoked Garlic, Snacks

There’s something particularly nostalgic about sausage rolls. Maybe it’s something to do with the mandatory birthday beige-buffet that seemed to set a precedent for children’s parties; if there is a birthday cake, then you’ll more than likely find a few of these guys kickin’ about too.

Australia Day – Lamingtons With Chilli Chocolate

Australia Day, Baking, Cake, Celebration, Chilli, Chocolate, Cocoa, Coconut, Comfort Food, Holidays, Lamington, Snacks

Today is Australia day. The day that the guys from down under celebrate us Brits storming over there in our ships in 1788 by consuming a considerable amount of cake covered in chocolate and coconut and most likely a bag of goon to honour the celebration. If that is enough to send you softly into a food induced coma, then don’t forget to blow up your goon-bag before you topple over so you have a delicious, wine-flavoured pillow to fall asleep on.

It’s Sunday again, a day which single handedly justifies spending the duration in your pyjamas… and I’m not judging you for it, it’s totally acceptable. It’s also a day where brunch is most relevant, usually in hope to cure those post-Saturday night hangovers (chemically this never works, but we like to think so…) – Either way, it’s probably about time you switched Netflix off, put the kettle on and made some brunch. (or stay in bed, that’s fine too…)

Spicy Sun-dried Tomato & Mozzarella Pretzels

Baking, Bread, Chilli, Mozarella, Party Food, Snacks, vegetarian

It’s an obvious fact that January is a month saturated with extreme diets, obnoxious detox regimes; (guilty) And drinking pretty much nothing but bottled water and green tea in the sincere, devastatingly bittersweet hope that we can solely endure a dry run throughout January without tippling a few shandies; PUT THE BOTTLE DOWN – However, Saturday turned my house mate and very good friend a year older, so typically; we drank, we laughed, we had fun… And I played chef for our party guests.

olive and chilli seed bread

Baking, Bread, Chilli, Olives

Everyone loves a bit of bread, don’t they? The unequivocal ancient masterpiece that we quite frankly, take for granted these days. Whether you have it in the morning as toast or as an evening bread & butter pudding dessert, it’s a staple we all subconsciously worship. So throw out your value, supermarket loaf that is taking up all the space in your fridge as you try to salvage a few more days of health out of it and get yourself into the kitchen.
