  • Continuing Adventure

    September 20, 2015

    First of all, I apologize for taking a slightly longer break than I anticipated. The fact is, I decided to go back to a full-time job so I’ve been busy with interviews and starting work at a new company! Monday was my first day on the community team at Coursera, where I’ll be working with […]

  • August Update

    I suppose I was tempting fate when I wondered what could possibly go wrong with mushrooms for my #monthlyveg. Just 1 week later I put myself on a limited diet that most definitely didn’t include mushrooms! So I’m here today to give you an update on my diet progress and also to let you know […]

  • Simple Ginger & Strawberry Dessert

    claire

    July 28, 2015

    A friend of mine asked me to come up with a simple, light dessert for a dinner party she was hosting. Straight away, strawberries came to mind for both of us. I suggested an Eton mess, but also knew I wanted to take some time to think about something a bit more original. I wanted […]

  • Polka Dot Chocolate Cake

    Ordinary liquid food coloring is great but it has its limitations, so I picked up some gel colors a few weeks ago for my first attempt at macarons. Macaron mix is such a finicky thing the extra water in regular food coloring can ruin it. After having fun making (and eating) macarons I realized the […]

    As you can imagine, I haven’t been feeling very inspired by food recently, (if you missed it, this is why) but I do have something else to share with you. This past week we’ve actually been getting summer weather in the Bay Area (even in San Francisco!). On Saturday we decided to make the most […]

  • Limited Diet: Week 1

    claire

    July 14, 2015

    I mentioned last week that I’ve put myself on an extremely restricted diet in an attempt to identify foods I might be sensitive to. I’m sharing my story here in the hope that it may help people in a similar situation. My first week hasn’t really been too successful. I’m pretty sure putting yogurt on […]

  • Lamb Chops with Gravy

    July 11, 2015

    A few weeks ago I developed a few recipes for a company called Platejoy. All their recipes have to be quick to cook (no more than 30 minutes for a dinner, including preparation time) so it was quite a challenge to come up with something tasty, balanced and still quick to prepare. Perhaps I made it a […]

  • Limited Diet to Test Food Sensitivities

    claire

    July 7, 2015

    Although it’s not something I’ve mentioned before on the blog, I’ve suffered from IBS for about the last 10 years. For most of that time, I put it down to stress and did my best to ignore it. More recently, as the stresses in my life have stabilized and I don’t have a stressful job anymore, […]
