Buckwheat Waffles with Maple Butter and Toasted Pecans

This post is in collaboration with milk&more You better believe I’m posting another waffle recipe without leaving so much as a month since the last one, and it’s unlikely to be that long before the next. When I get a new toy I’m excited about, I go on the obsessive. It’s waffles every weekend now until I tire of them – and I don’t see myself tiring of them any time soon because.. well, because waffles. Today’s recipe is coming at you alongside some new research from milk&more about how us Brits go about the whole business of eating breakfast. Mostly, the results of their recent data sweep aren’t in the least bit surprising to me. For example, I’m sure you could probably have guessed that 42% of us eat breakfast outside the home and that 75% of us don’t feel energised or set up for the day without breakfast. However, their observations on how our breakfast habits differ depending on where we are geographically is a little more beard-stroke-worthy. Those located in SW London …

Rye Waffles with Banana and Salted Caramel

Rye Waffles with Banana

One afternoon last week when I got home from work, Tom announced that he’d bought me a present and that I should wander around the house playing hot or cold to find it. After a relatively short game (we live in a little flat, you only have to say “warmer” about five times in order to direct someone to even the smallest nook and/or cranny) I was beside myself to discover a brand new waffle maker hidden away in his computer desk. Best random getting-home-from-work surprise ever. Naturally, I insisted on making waffles almost immediately. I wanted to start by playing with rye flour because me and rye have kind of a thing going on at the moment. My current bread obsession is Fjord, a loaf you’ll find at any of the Real Patisserie bakeries around town. It’s a gorgeous, dark, seedy, dense loaf that packs more depth and flavour than I ever thought I’d want in a bread. Give it a try, if you live around here, slathered with Marmite. Unf.  Anyway, sorry, that …

Galentine's Day Card

How to Celebrate Galentine’s Day in Brighton

  WTF is Galentine’s Day? If you don’t know, I get it, but you do need to reprioritise the information that you’re keeping in your brain. Galentine’s Day is a pre-Valentine’s celebration of your female friends invented by Parks and Recreation‘s Lesley Knope, traditionally celebrated on February 13th – it needed to come early this year because we’re going out tonight to for my 21st birthday and ain’t nobody getting out of bed on Saturday. Who’d I celebrate with? My very best friend in the entire world, Jess. obligatory blast from the past pictures  We’ve been friends for a very long time (I’ve spared you the pictures of us when we’re 13, nobody needs to see those.. ever). She’s the most important lady in my life that doesn’t share my DNA and she’s always, always there. I love her very much and it was awesome to take an entire day to just celebrate being one of the most badass duos in existence. Presents A non-obligatory yet very welcome component of Galentine’s Day. The most appropriate gift? Chocolate. …
