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…

Cottage cheese pie with blueberries

We all know for sure what summer is all about: sun, fun, sea, tan, curly salty hair, bright colors, ice-cream, lemonade, cocktails, endless nights.. It can go on forever. But, on top of all, (is it only for me or not?) summer is associated with lots of perfectly ripe fruits and berries everywhere around! Tons…

Blood orange and cardamom polenta cake

March is driving it to the end, and here is some news: I’m home. Hardly can I say finally, but still I came back to Russia and there’s nothing to do with it until autumn (I’ll be back to London for my further studies in September. Fingers crossed). What can I say. It’s been 5 days…

Beef Burger with Hummus and Fresh Veggies

Hello there, my dear readers! I’m in such a great mood today! Even gloomy overcast weather did not affect me in any sense, and I still can’t wait to do something (get busy, If you wish). I was initially planning to have a walk in Hyde Park and share a weekend brunch with my Chinese group mates, but…

Open-Faced Teriyaki Salmon and Avo Sandwich

I love Sundays. I love the earliest sun lights struggling to come through my window shades, love these street sounds I hear every day (the window’s been ajar all the time, and I was too lazy to stand up and close it properly). I love London waking up reluctantly in the morning after another rocking night-out…

And then I suddenly surprised you with an unexpected delicious snack (check up these mouth watering no-guilt chicken strips). And now…

Oven-Baked Chicken Strips with Teriyaki sauce

Oh my, I literally couldn’t wait for the weekend to begin this week. That was tough, guys. From Monday and up to Thursday I was working my you-know-what out to finish all my assignments and projects. Frankly speaking, I am not that type of student who always holds off until the deadline. I just do little…

Brownie Cheesecake

Another Sunday. Another empty fridge and my pathetic attempts to construct something looking like a decent meal without going out for weekly food shopping. And.. Another cheesecake, standing solitary at the top shelf of the fridge, waiting for everyone to wake up and sink their teeth into these tempting layers of splendor. Remember what I…

Frangipane Tart with Peaches

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Wow, it took me ages to move to WordPress, but I finally realized that I should definitely do something with it. As some people know, I used to run Such Yummy Stuff on Blogspot, but everything changes, and so do I. What’s on today? Well, guys, I have to say that…
