Hi, I'm Elle

Question: when does a flapjack become a granola bar? It is something that I found myself pondering over whilst trying to decide what to call these bars, that probably fall somewhere between the two. I’m very fond of making these sort of bars for pack ups and snacks on the go. They’re reasonably robust and […]

Pancake day has come around pretty early this year but I’m already planning on getting sweet and savoury pancakes into my week. My housemate has been making me lots of spinach pancakes recently so I decided to make my own twist on it ready for Tuesday and many brunches beyond. Valentine’s Day also falls this week. […]

Spinach and Pea Pancakes with Feta

This post would probably have been better posted a month ago but it was too good not to share with you even though the pumpkin spiced latte has been truly replaced by the gingerbread.

Simple Vegetable Stock

You know when you have a snack that you just want to keep on eating? These brownies are it. I’m pining over them since unless I splurge on a food processor or NutriBullet for my year abroad (tempting, tempting…) I’m unlikely to be whipping up a batch any time soon. I was inspired to make […]

Vegan Peanut Butter Brownies

Every health blogger’s favourite leafy green is currently in season in the UK, and is just begging to be put into as many dishes as possible (no joke -I like to buy local and/or organic kale from my local health food shop as it’s much nicer than the supermarket offerings, and I currently have the […]
