Overnight Sourdough Pancakes in Grams!

Like many others, the sudden shortage of dried bakers yeast during the COVID 19 lockdown forced me to try my hand at sourdough baking (something I had been putting off for years).

Sweet French Crepes

Proper homemade, fresh, thin and sweet french crepes are unbeatable. So much so, I have been known to eat quite a few in a row and will happily whip some up instead of a dinner! A french crepe, to me, must be freshly made, thin and I like them sweet! My default topping is pretty…

Creamy Martini mushrooms on toast

Martini? Yup. Extra Dry (other brands also available…). Truth be told any white boozy liquid will do. I came up with this recipe because I drank all my white wine (surprised?) not much else to it. Great as a snack, light bite or starter – mushrooms on toast are a tasty quick option. Did I…

Go on have two… A traditional croque monsieur can be surprisingly laborious to make with the béchamel sauce and the nutmeg etc… this simple speedy…

Open Sandwiches ‘Kanapka’
