Roast Squash and Sweet Potato Soup with Buttermilk and Blue Cheese Swirl


Tonight I made Roast Squash and Sweet Potato Soup with Buttermilk and Blue Cheese Swirl. I used Nigella's recepie from her christmas cookery book. Last night I was watching Nigella's Christmas Kitchen - as I do every year! - and was inspired to make her delicious soup, and I must say, It was delicious! I served it with brown  seeded bread - aswell as the cheese sauce.
The actual soup didn't have too much flavour to it however added with the cheese sauce was completly different. The soup and the sauce complimented eachother beautifully and it was overall a fantastic dish!

Apple Pie :)

I made this apple pie a while ago but forgot to put it on... so I am now.
I had it with double pouring cream, it was delicious!

Sugar cookies!

Today I got in from a long, tiring day and decided I wanted sugar cookies.  They're so much fun to make and really easy! I used the recipe in the 'Hummingbird Bakery Book' but doubled. -- I usually double recipes for cupcakes and cookies etc because anyone that walks in the door eats them.  Then before I know it, they're all gone, and there's none left for me.  So this way there's enough to share! The icing is also from the 'Hummingbird Bakery Book', it's lemon Royal icing.

Best of all, they're really yummy!

Lunch :)

I was about to eat lunch and I decided I was quite pleased with it so I took a picture to capture the moment... as I like to do with food.

Brownies... needed comfort food!

So I got home at about 11pm and wasn't in.. the best mood shall we say. So I decided that making brownies would be the best way to cheer myself up, and so I did. I finished a bit after midnight and then enjoyed eating them curles up on the sofa with a blanket watching South Park. What a great night.

Lil sis & I made mini cookies :')

Been doing A LOT of baking recently, and haven't had a chance to get on here... but I have a few pictures and will put some on :)

My little sister made some mini chocolate cookies and I helped her :)
- They were delicious!

Overly bored.

Yeah so I'm in an extremly strange mood.
It's sunday (state the obvious) but it doesn't feel like it. It doesn't feel like it's been a day when it sort of has.. it's half five. I dont know why im in such a wierd mood and my wonderful friend told me to write a blog post, so I am.
Right now I am overly bored, overly tired, exhasted, frustrated, restless, jumbled and swooshy. I'm sure there are many more words I could use but those are the ones that came to me first.
My friend also told me to write about her, so I will.
She's EXACTLY like Dory from finding nemo. - EXACTLY. you meet her and it's like meeting the character, I love her! She's blonde- which I've always wanted :L She's HILARIOUS, literally hilarious. Whenever I'm with her my cheeks ache after because she makes me smile and laugh so much, and I've cried many a time over the hilarious things she says :L She's also a little bit beautiful:')
basically, she's one of the best friends I've ever had and I love her to pieces. <3

Home-made Potatoe and Leek Soup

Today, my mum and I made potatoe and leep soup.  For me, this was very different as I usually do not eat soup, however today I did, and I have to say, it was gorgeous.

Pointe shoes

I've been doing ballet since I was five.  I am now on grade six - EXCITED - and my teacher is now allowing me to start pointe.  So yesterday I had the pleasure of walking around London going to lots of dance shops.  Luckily I did find the 'right pair for me' in the end.  So now I can stop searching.
In the end I got them from B L O C H :)
So yeah... not sure why anyone needs to know this pointless information but I was excited about doing pointe so I thought I'd share it. :L

sorry if I've wasted your time...

My Best Friend.

Do you ever question how you possibly became friends with someone so amazing? why they talk to you, let alone why they're friends with you... Well I sometimes wonder this about my best friend.

She is truly one of the most brilliant people I've ever met. Also, she's STUNNING. She's half chinese, quater norwegian and quater english. A pretty beautiful mix. Now I, being almost full engligh (well an 8th irish to be precise...) can look extremly plain compared to her, but still she is friends with me. She also lived in Spain for nine years, and speaks Spanish fluently- so she speaks TWO languages. I on the other hand I just speak english. She is (now im going to use this word even though it makes me sound ridiculously stupid) really, really cool. So yes I sound really, really, really uncool by saying that but I don't care. She is. She has the nicest clothes, most things from Zara. - She has amazing, and expensive taste. Where as I have some clothes from charity shops :L She is also HILARIOUS. I can sit with her and just laugh for hours and hours on end :') and she just comes up with the funniest comments you've ever heard.

Basically she is everything I want to be.

But I just have to think, don't question why she's friends with you, just accept it and make the most of how lucky you are. And anyway, she'd probably say the same about me, because thats what best friends do :')

I love you, best friend <3

Guilty Pleasures

Most people have a 'guilty pleasure'.
In lots of cases it can be food.
One of my many guilty pleasures is super noodles.
You know they're really unhealthy.
You know they probably won't fill you up.
You know they will make you f-a-t-t-e-r.
But still you can't help but eat them.
Because there is just something about them that you can't resist.

Apple Mac's

I reallyyyyy want an apple mac laptop. Well, lots of people do I suppose, but my laptop is hiddiously slow. It constantly freezes, the fan is broken and it makes extremly loud, constant  "WRRAAARRMMMRWRRRRRRRRWRRWWWWWRRRRRRR" noises. I know, YAY. -_____-
So that's why I want an apple laptop. I know lots of people that have them - my uncle, my aunt, my grandad has the computer, and others - people I am terribly jealous of. I love using the apple compuers and laptops, and comparing my aunt's and uncle's laptops to mine, they last A LOT longer.
The only problem - the obvious problem - is money. Where do I get the money to get a laptop? Oh well. I guess i'll think of something eventually. I hope.

Do you have any little 'things' you need to do? Things that to others may seem very strange, but to you they're completley normal?
Well I do. For example, every easter I HAVE to watch The Lion King. Why, you may ask? Because at the beginning, the babboon in a way 'christens' Simba. As he does this he cracks a round thing. I dont know what it is, but its round. He also cracks the same thing later on in the film and bites and gobbles at it.
As you know, at easter most people recieve chocolate easter eggs. I pretend I am the Babboon and I crack open my easter eggs, and I bite and gobble at them.
Oh yes, we all have little routines of things we do, that to others may seem very strange, however we continue to do them, because we just can't help it.

There are some people in life that are cruel.
They are the people you try to avoid,
The people your parents don't like you seeing,
The people that you aren't supposed to like.

They are the people that hurt others.
The people that care about no one but themselves.
The people that are willing to do anything to get what they want.

Some of them however, are able to hide it.
You think that you know them.
You think you can trust them.
You think that your friends with them.

Until one day, you find out that they are just like all the others.

My cat

This is my cat. Well, one of my cats... I have two. This one is called Ruby.
I wouldn't like to say I am a 'cat person' because I do like dogs too. I dont see how some people can love one and not the other but thats just how some people are I suppose. I would love to have a dog but having two cats- one quite vicious and not extremely happy, I do not think it would be the most sensible idea to bring a dog into their lives aswell, seeing as they have enough trouble putting up with eachother already.

My little sister made cakes

I do love cakes.
I love making them too,
 but you just can't beat eating them.
They're sweet and soft,
They're crummy and bouncy,
They're cakes.
Pretty, tastey, delicious cakes.


I personally love reading. 
Lots of people my age generally don't like reading because for some reason it is seen as 'uncool' I suppose, but I think it's fantastic. It can stop you from being bored and give you new things to think about, which can be a brilliant relief from having to put up with your own thoughts and problems day in, day out.
I always need to have at least one book on the go to keep me sane, but I normally have at least three going at once.
Some people say that a blog is supposed to persuade people.. so I suppose could try that.
Read. Pick up a book and give it a go, you might surprise yourself and actually enjoy it.

As you can probably guess.. I made a blog.  I've thought about it numerous times and tried but never proceeded.. until today.
Lots of people I know have blogs and I love reading them, but always thought if I wrote one it would be horribly pointless and noone would read or like it.  However then I thought about it, and that's what blogs are if you think about it.. pointless.  So I thought what the hell and made one. 
I apologise in advance to anyone that this blog  may extremely bore, but I'm going to give it a go anyway.
