Today is the 81st episode of Woman Crush Wednesday and you might recognize the honoree. Londoner Sally Butcher is not only well known for her fabulous cookery books, but also her amazing shop in Peckham called Persepolis and the darling cafe that adjoins it. In fact, if you watch my Foodie Fieldtrip Friday segment on my Snapchat (username blissbakery) you won’t be surprised that I have chosen Sally as my WCW. Just two weeks ago I visited and feasted on some of her amazing Persian food. And I purchased a key ingredient for today’s awesome cooking tutorial. Continue reading
I have a recipe to share with you today. It is an easy Brussels Sprout side dish that is so good it will leave you beggin’ for more! But before I get your lips smacking, I have a story to share with you. In fact I’ve wanted to share it for ages but couldn’t decide on a title. One idea was Panhandling (another name for begging). Another was “Are you excited to see me or is that a rifle in the back seat?” But that one sounded too far fetched. But this is a story about begging people for money and the scary situation that led to the rifle incident. Continue reading
My LOVE of all things pumpkin is well documented. I know I am not alone. I just read a blog post titled 20 Signs Your Pumpkin Addiction is Out of Control! It actually makes me look tame! In fact, while I have posted pumpkin recipes on here before, this is the first time I have ever put all ten of my fav pumpkin recipes together on one post. My little Halloween treat for you! I don’t need to say much else, because, well, I just want to gaze at the photos and drool! And I hope your taste buds get tantalized too! Continue reading
I have the best memories of going to the pumpkin patch with my kids when they were little. Picking out the perfect sized pumpkin and then eagerly carving them were all part of the Halloween festivities. Food is always a big part of the tradition, but often it’s not the most healthy. That’s okay to have a treat every now and again. But what if there was a delicious healthy salad that would pump up the jam in your party? This post will introduce you to the newest member of my pumpkin recipe arsenal!
Hooray for Hump Day because once again it is Woman Crush Wednesday. This week the 68th gorgeous gourmet gal is getting the love. And of course we get another fab recipe. Since today’s prolific WCW has written ten cookery books it should be easy to find one! Diana Henry is a most incredible chef, broadcaster and award winning food writer. But since I’ve been in a salad mode lately, and it is still warm here in London, I think we will have a healthy dinner tonight! Continue reading
Hump Day for some is Happy Day for me! Woman Crush Wednesday number 66 and I am so excited to share this fabulous female chef with you.

About ready to launch her second cookery book, this gorgeous gourmet gal is flying with her innovative recipes! And today I will be recreating one of them live on my Snapchat (username blissbakery) and sharing the LOVE with her on here too! Continue reading
It is great to be back home after three weeks of traveling in America and Canada. I’ve missed doing my Woman Crush Wednesday cooking tutorials on Snapchat (username blissbakery) and sharing the love on here as well. Today is the 64th WCW recipient and this chef is an icon. One of the most influential people in the foodie world, in fact she even ignited an entire food revolution. Alice Waters is the chef and creator of the famous Chez Panisse in Berkley, California. I had the pleasure of eating at her restaurant which is famous for its locally grown and organic ingredients. Alice Waters is called the “Mother of American Food” for a reason and has championed the Edible Schoolyard Project which is now in over 5,000 schools. Continue reading
