Toasted Nuts & Seeds Granola Bars

Thursday, 21 August 2014

Where on earth has this summer gone?! I know we are still in August but how did we even get here? It seems like just yesterday that I was frolicking about London being a massive tourist. That being said, I have been back to London pretty much nearly every week since I moved back homes! I really feel like we are done over a bit when it comes to the amount of time we get that we can actually call "summer". It feels like winter lasts about 3/4 of the year then there is a bit of autumn and a teeny bit of summer. Why!?! Everything is better in the summer. Except for outdoor ice-skating. If you are into that, then summer probably isn't for you.

Raspberry Lime Lemonade

It's weird how there are some really simple things that I just can't make. For example, pop over to my house and ask for a cuppa, and what will you get is a cup of slightly brown milky water. Sounds real good right? I am probably gonna have a queue of people wanting to grab a cuppa with me. In all seriousness though, I really cannot make a cup of English tea. It probably has something to do with the fact that I don't like tea therefore I never really have any need to make it. My family have ginger tea which you make on the stove. Now that I can make. I remember on placement I had to make tea for my supervisor. It was lucky my tea making skills were not being assessed otherwise I would probably still be at uni!

Spinach, Mushroom & Feta Parcels

Tuesday, 22 July 2014

It seems like forever since we last spoke!  It's been a busy ol' couple of weeks! Last friday I completed an intensive 2 week Level 1 British Sign Language Course which was great! I was amazed at how quickly I picked up (some) of the signs and learnt an awful lot about the deaf community. Very insightful. In between the sign language course I picniced, I swam in Hampstead Heath lido, I went to Liverpool for me pal's birthday, I went to Essex for me other pal's birthday and got very little sleep! You will be hearing a lot more from me now though, you might even get more than 1 post a week. That's right. That means even more bad jokes and, most importantly, pictures of food!


Mini Black Forest & Tropical Sandwich Cakes

Sunday, 6 July 2014

I may have mentioned this before but I do love a good picnic. What more can you want from your summer than to lie in the sun, eating and listening to music? I therefore decided I wanted to make July picnic month on this here KB.eats! I recently purchased (and by I, I mean Mother) a coupla new mini cake trays, one rectangular and one for sandwich cakes, so I thought mini cakes would be a great place to start for the picnic recipes! Oh yeah this is a 2 in 1 recipe post! That's right, two recipes in one post, OUTRAGEOUS!
Now I can hear the uproar building in the distance already as there is cream on the cakes and we all know cream isn't really that picnic friendly. Fear not, cream is not essential for either of the cakes, it just makes for a nice indulgent treat if you are perhaps having the picnic at home or having a garden party of sorts. 
I just realised I haven't told you guys a joke in a while...
Do you know any sodium jokes?

Raspberry & Chocolate Oat Biscuits

Sunday, 22 June 2014

Hello, I am Karishma, qualified Speech and Language Therapist!! Yes that's right, I did it! Those long looong days spent sat at my desk, cramming as much information as possible into my already full brain, seemed to have paid off! And what a relief it is. Now I can actually enjoy my summer without waking up from dreams in which I find out I have failed! The funny thing is, I don't actually want to get a job now though. I want to put it off for as long as possible. You could say I don't want to face being "an adult" in the "real world". Alternatively, you could also say I am lazy. Either way you would be a little bit right! I just think I should enjoy being able to do nothing whilst I can, because before I know it my holidays will be limited to 20 days a year or whatever it is. See I don't even know how much time off I should expect to get when I enter the dreaded "real world"!

AOCooks; Afternoon Tea Delights with John Whaite

Thursday, 19 June 2014



The phrase "better late than never" could not be more fitting. Way back at the end of April, I was invited to an event at Neff by Appliances Online; #AOCooks. The event was called Afternoon Tea Delights, and Great British Bake Off winner John Whaite was the delightful host for the afternoon.
I arrived at the Neff showroom and joined the other bloggers who were being shown all the amazing products Neff has to offer, including their innovative Slide & Hide oven. More about that later. After we had our fill of gazing longly at cookers, imaging how good they'd look in our dream kitchens, we were taken to a presentation room where we were given a small talk on the history of Neff and Appliances Online. For those of you who don't know, Appliances Online is an online retailer for electrical appliances, whose customer service is highly rated! Check out their blog to find out more about the afternoon and what the company do!

Mexican Polenta Pie

Monday, 16 June 2014

Before we get started I need to apologise for the lack of food photos. It's always tricky making stuff for dinner that I want to feature on the blog 'cause chances are people want to eat it as soon as it's made which limits photo taking opportunities. Also the filling turned out a bit runnier than expected because I added some unnecessary water, which resulted in, what was in my opinion, an ugly pie. Don't worry I have tweaked the recipe so you won't end up with a sloppy pie like mine!  So yes, I am sorry, but to make up for it I have lots of photos from my continuing adventures as a tourist in London!
