Lemon ginger semolina pudding

This past weekend was glorious. It was a long weekend with both Friday and Monday off, and the weather was spectacular, warm, sunny, and alive. We spent our long weekend at beaches, playgrounds, gardens, having picnics in the sunshine, watching bumblebees buzz among the flours, and birds nest in the cliffs. Perfect! So after a […]

Three small bowls filled with golden baked porridge and oozing with rhubarb.

Rhubarb quinoa baked oatmeal

I needed something warm, comforting, and infused with a bit of sunshine. Upon scouring the cupboards I decided that today was the day to make a bowl of warm, creamy […]


Rye and buckwheat granola

I love that feeling of waking up sleepy and hungry, sitting down with my family all together over some delicious food and a cup of coffee with radio Scotland on in the background. Also, you may have noticed, that I love grains. […]
