Chill Day ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜ด

Happy Sunday! Only a very short post today, but itโ€™s nice to get back to some cooking/baking after some time. After several long weeks of work, itโ€™s nice to be able to catch a break today, so I decided to make a classic brunch with a bit of a twist. These fluffy American pancakes ๐Ÿฅž are infused with nori (Japanese seaweed) and served with crispy bacons ๐Ÿฅ“ – one of my favourite things of all time! ๐Ÿ˜‹ Perfect and rich when served with a dab of butter!

What do you like to eat your pancakes with? What are you having for brunch/breakfast today? Let me know in the comments below! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Itโ€™s Home Time ๐Ÿ 

Just a short post today – the first since I have been back at my familyโ€™s home in Scotland. In the past week, I have raided my mumโ€™s kitchen a few times ๐Ÿ˜‚ but I am more grateful that I can avoid doing dishwashing for a bit! ๐Ÿคฃ

The weather is much cooler here in Edinburgh than in London. (That last week there before I hopped onto the train was getting unbearable! ๐Ÿฅต๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ) As a result, I have been really enjoying my mumโ€™s hearty home cooking. It was my turn to cook tonight, and I decided to make a filo quiche using the scraps left in my mumโ€™s fridge (we had some already sliced carrots and onions from the previous nights, plus some unused bacons and courgettes). ๐Ÿ˜‰

Homemade filo pastry – though my arms were tired after all the rolling I did ๐Ÿ˜ช
A lovely golden brown colour ๐Ÿฅฐ
Time to eat! ๐Ÿ˜‹

The Savouring Breakfast Club

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, during work days, I always find myself rushing in the morning and skipping breakfasts. So, it is great finally having time to sit down and enjoy a proper, hearty breakfast.

As a kid, I used to enjoy the traditional English breakfast. Big fry up with sausages, bacon, hash brown and baked beans. It sounds delicious, but I found that as I grow older, I have become more intolerant to greasy food in the morning. Therefore, it is nice to see that the food trend is now tending towards more healthy and refreshing options.

Some people would be quick to equate healthy to bland and boring, but I disagree. Salt The Radish does some of the best breakfasts I had with a focus on refreshing ingredients and a wide options for vegetarian and vegan eaters. My favourite is their crispy courgette and sweetcorn fritters, paired with vegan halloumi, rocket, avocado, red pepper jam, poached egg, herby dressing and hummus, topped with streaky bacons. What’s your favourite breakfast to start the day with?
