Poco Broadway market/Mildred’s Kitchen Soho/Beef meatballs at home

I am totally into taking pictures this week. I’m not joking, I even managed to capture my classmate, Maria. Classmate.. It seems like ages to me! More than 7 years ago we used to study at gymnasium in my hometown Chelyabinsk (Russia). Things have changed since those times. We moved to different places, traveled the…

Persimmon mousse bars with raw cacao and mango jelly 

Am I the only person who loves persimmons? Obviously not. But you can’t even imagine how excited I am when I see the first fruits on the shelves of local shops. Still crude and hard to the touch, with its skin green in places, these fruits are an epitome of autumn for me. You may…

No Bake Cashew, Almond and Coconut Cheesecake Bars

Midterms time… Should I say how reluctant I am to sit down and get ready for the exams?.. 2 out of 3 have already passed, thank God. But the toughest is approaching – Accounting… I get goose bumps every time I hear somebody mentioning that creepy subject. It’s not that I am not ready. But…

Red beans, Spinach and Tomato Chickpea Pasta 

It’s the end of October already, and Halloween vibes are flowing through London Town. Clubs got into the spirit of holiday (or just used a perfect opportunity to monetize another non-official holiday) and started hosting Halloween-themed parties from the very 28th of October (as no sane person will go out on Monday 31st. Childlike trick-or-treating…

Vegfest 2016, London

It seems to me that I’m more and more involved into this vegan and healthy eating movement. I don’t even know what attracts me so much – I can hardly say that the reason lies within its ethical issues, as I’m not very much touched by that (don’t get me wrong – I am surely against any kind of…

Chocolate Chip Greek Yogurt Pancakes

What comes to your mind first when you think about breakfast? Well, it depends, as one of my professors says. There are people who limit themselves to a cup of americano to start the engine. Others (me included) go to bed dreaming of waking up to feast on cereals or morning oats loaded with berries,…

Redemption Bar, Notting Hill

TGIF syndrome is taking over London again. I see these gawky joyful smiles on the faces of my group mates. They are heading to the nearest bar of course. God Bless the man who opened Yorkshire Gray just 1 minute away from Hult (that’s my uni). Yasssss, sweet Jesus. I do have to accept, though, that my face…

City of London, Chotto Matte, Soho

Believe it or not, but I’m alive and still breathing! Just kidding.. But that’s the only way I can describe my recurring absence. I’ve got one serious reason for that (several, honestly). Let me (in explanation of my conduct, of cooourse) tell you how that month got me like: everlasting moving-in and outs, utility bills,…

Peach & Pistachio Focaccia

Can anyone explain me the fact that it’s the end of July already? What’s going on with this world? I mean, WHY this bloody time is running so fast? I do realize that months inevitably pass by only due to the rapid change in food trends on foodgawker. It hit me the last time I was scrolling…

Blueberry pie

Rise and shine! Good morning, World! It seems to me recently that every day I wake up earlier than the day before. The reason for the changes in my daily schedule is that I just can’t wait to get down to my countless affairs since early evening of the previous day. Gosh, I’m a fanatic…

Cottage cheese fruit mini-pizzas

What is UP everyone? 🙂 I didn’t even notice that Friday has officially rolled around. TGIF! To be honest, I spent my all day editing entries for numerous recipe submitting sites. Gosh, there is a whole lot of them! But I sorted out those I liked most of all and got down to work. Well…..

Red currant cake with sour-cream glaze

Oh I love summer. This is exactly the time when I succeed in balancing my mind – first of all, this includes having a proper sleep (be attentive here – I don’t mean sleeping till the lunch time. I literally hate waking up late. So I rise and shine at around 7:30 a.m. even when I…
