Baked Sweet Potato Fries

My savoury comfort food has to be baked sweet potato. Rub it with coconut oil, sprinkle on some salt and then let it do its thing in the oven for a good 45minutes (depending on size) at 180-200 degrees celcius. Perfection.

 Yes, Yes, I know, baked potatoes can be incredibly boring - often i crave the simplicity but sometimes they just don't cut it. Sometime you just have to make the extra effort and make them a little more special. That's where my Baked Sweet Potato Fries come in. Deliciously crunchy, soft and sweet with a little paprika kick, these babies are addictive.

Chocolate Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Cookies have to be my favourite comfort food. Sometimes a good batch is all you need to get you over those hump days.

Kitchen Challenge: Chocolate Eclairs

It’s time for a challenge. I created this blog as a way to share my passion for baking and cooking with the world, but also to push myself to experiment and try new recipes and ingredient combinations. This month I challenged myself with choux pastry. Pastry is an area in which I feel I can do the basics, shortctust mostly – enough for pies and tarts, but have always been nervous to experiment with. Until now I had associated ├ęclairs and profiteroles as desserts that needed to be bought, not made – I had certainly never dreamed of making them myself.
