Okay, let’s talk about cobblers.
Not to be confused with cobbled roads or that nice mountain in Scotland, a cobbler is a dessert similar to a crumble, except that the topping is added onto the stewed fruit filling in little blobs instead of being spread over the entire thing. The best thing about this dessert is that it looks adorable AND it cuts the carbs, because you need less mixture. AKA: the ideal situation. I mean, just when you think a fruit crumble couldn’t possibly get any better… THIS happens. Cobbler, you have achieved something really quite special, my friend.
There’s a story behind this Thai Red Coconut Curry. It’s one of my favourite memories.
This time almost 3 years ago, I was living in Australia. Brisbane, to be exact. I had been gone for 6 months, having left in the middle of July, and hadn’t seen my family since. As a gal who grew up with cold, snowy Christmases with family perched around the tree in a little forgotten village in the east of England, the idea of spending Christmas in one of the hottest cities in Australia at the height of their summertime seemed, well… wrong.
Today we’re talking Farmer J- London’s best kept healthy eating secret.
One of things I most begrudge my Glaswegian surroundings for -aside from the unthinkably bad weather- is that it sometimes feels so far behind other UK cities on the healthy eating front. Of course, new cafes and restaurants are opening all the time and the city is slowly becoming more responsive to the needs of the health conscious, but there’s still some way to go.
On the other hand, when you’re out and about and didn’t have time to make a healthy, well balanced lunch to bring out with you… well, there’s no denying that London is one city which has well and truly got you covered on the healthy food front.
I’ve been having a love affair with these dark chocolate, date and ginger cookies. They are JUST what I’ve been looking for.
You know: sweet-but-not-too-sweet, gooey, delicious, comforting, foodgasmic, healthy, melt in your mouth…
Wait- what?! Rewind. HEALTHY, you say?
Oh, yes, my friends. Healthy cookies that taste damn delicious. Mmmmmmhmm. I’m very excited too. These oaty, nutty, fruity cookies have some competition.
Friends… I’m not going to lie to you, this pumpkin cheesecake with chocolate buckwheat crust is, well… it’s kind of a big deal.
There are a few reasons why:
Welcome back to my Auckland review series! Today we’re reviewing Rosie’s, a vibrant eatery in the neighborhood of Parnell. If you missed my other Auckland guides, you can check them out here.
As mentioned in this article, Rosie’s was the first cafe I visited in Auckland. And let me tell you, it was a pretty delicious introduction to the local gastronomy.
I know what you’re thinking.
‘Molly, a banana, peach and pomegranate fruit salad has no business flaunting it’s delicious summery flavours around the blog now that Autumn is upon us.’
And… I know, I know. You’re probably right. But I couldn’t resist posting this- it’s just too damn delicious to not be shared.
Having recently taken a trip to Auckland
which was heavily incentivised by it’s incredible foodie scene, I thought I’d share with you a collection of the yummiest places I found to eat everything from breakfast bowls, raw salads, smoothies and dairy free ice cream to cakes, Filipino steamed buns and pizza by the slice. In the lead up to my trip, I got my researching cap on and ploughed my way through endless blog reviews, web articles and even instagram to find the absolute best of the best in and around Auckland. Once there, I ate out three times a day, almost every day- so hopefully I can impart some knowledge! Without further ado, here are the eateries that gained my vote.
