Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry

I recently made this sweet potato and chickpea curry and considering that it was my first ever attempt at making it I was really happy with the results. It was quite simple to make and tasted amazing so I thought I would share the recipe.

Traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe

These delicious cookies are the perfect treat to have at home or give to a friend. Once lockdown is over these will also be amazing to have on offer for guests with a cup of tea or coffee. They have very few ingredients and although they are a treat, they will definitely be healthier than most packaged, ready-made biscuits. You'll find the ingredients, method and some photos of the process below. 

These are also fun, quick and simple to make and perfect to practice your baking skills.

Favourite outfits of April

Being in lockdown and barely leaving my flat has made old clothes feel new again. On the days when I do leave my flat the most simple outfits suddenly feel so nice so I thought I would share some of my favourite ones that I've worn over the past month.

Isolation thoughts and walks

I've been trying my best to focus on the positive aspects of this lockdown so I thought I would share some of my thoughts. I'm also going to share some of the photos that I've taken on my walks since one of the positives is that I have been walking and exploring more... a lot more. It has been both amazing and eerie to see parts of Edinburgh that are normally very busy and filled with tourists, completely still and empty. 

A big part of me believes that this is probably the most quiet my life is going to be until retirement and as much as I love living life by going to the gym, going for food and drinks, going shopping and most importantly spending time with family and friends, I know that sooner or later I will be doing all of those things again. This time in isolation is such a short period of time in the grand scheme of things and I'm therefore trying to appreciate and accept the present moment.

Today I wanted to share my recipe for this old school cake / tray bake that I used to get with my primary school lunches in the 90's and early 2000's. It used to be served with custard and the taste and smell are so nostalgic. I definitely don't think this would be served today, although I am certain that many people in the UK will remember this.
