Caramelised red onion and butternut squash quiche (vegan, gf)

As an Oddbox subscriber, I get to experience the “morning of Christmas” feeling every week – even though I always check first what’s going to be in the box, party for curiosity and partly for meal planning during the week, which, I know, sounds super boring but also having both time and mind consuming jobs, my […]

These indications will do. When my husband uttered the sentence “fruit cake, or like a cake with sultanas or other dried fruit, but […]

Hello!

My name is Miriam, I am a research scientist but almost every evening I trade my lab gown for an apron (no, I really don’t, I actually don’t wear aprons, the thrill of vegan cream stains on my pullovers is something I wouldn’t give up) and bake. Either because of ethical or health reasons, some […]
