Recipe: Healthy, gluten-free, vegan banana bread

This recipe is so delicious, very filling and I love the taste the spices add to it! It was inspired by a vegan banana bread I found online, but I have changed the quantities and the sweetener used throughout the times I have baked it. It’s so delicious, vegan, sugar and gluten free and if…

Recipe: Eggs benedict

Eggs benedict is definitely one of those feel-good, sinfully delicious breakfast treats everyone enjoys having when they’re on holiday.

Cafe Review: ALI Sokoladine

This is a cafe that I recommend to all tourists and people living in Vilnius! If you love delicate cakes, macarons and eclairs – you HAVE to go to ALI sokoladine or eklerine. Only a couple of days ago did one of their store change to eklerine (eclairs) but they still sell chocolates and macarons,…

Afternoon Tea at The Threadneedles Hotel

On my birthday Jonas and I went to have afternoon tea at the London Threadneedles Hotel – the Marco Pierre Oyster bar. Let’s just say the beautiful dome and the themed desserts caught my eye online so I chose this place. It’s centred in the bank centre of London where it’s quite busy but the…

A very moist and semi-healthy berry pie that is great for summer! Some of the fat is replaced with yogurt which gives it a very, very moist texture that I love. I made this pie for a dinner we had with friends and Jonas tried a bit as well- everyone seemed to like it and…

Today I’m reviewing Knot Pretzels – a cute pretzel and coffee shop located at Clapham Junction Station. Those of you who have been to the train station, I’m sure you have walked past it and secretly got mad at yourself for not getting a pretzel to try. Let me just say – that was me for a…

Coffee, chocolates and a good read.

Sometimes we all just need some time to relax, unwind and destress. I posted a blogpost a few months ago about my tips for relaxing and destressing and decided to use my advice myself. It’s been really busy at work and I have been really tired when I come back that I tend to just…
