Spicy Roasted Broccolini Quinoa Salad

I have to apologise for completely dropping off the radar! I have been frantic for the last few weeks, writing end of year reports for school. Thankfully, they are almost all done and dusted!! I am so grateful for easy, tasty meals when life is hectic. The one I’m sharing today is a recipe shared by chef Gaby Dalkin on The Design Files, and is the best option when you are stuck for time and ingredients. When I first read the recipe, I thought to myself, “is that all it’s got in it?? Surely that can’t taste very exciting!” But oh how wrong I was.

I often substitute the broccolini for good old normal broccoli, and have been known to chuck in asparagus and chargrilled courgette when I have it on hand.

Doesn’t it look delish?! Once you’ve made this, I promise you it will become your easy, go to, mid-week meal. And an even bigger bonus is that it’s super healthy!

Etsy Treasures: Inkkit

I love finding wee treasure troves on Etsy. I must admit though, sometimes I just give up searching for anything on there just because there is so much crap to wade through. But today it was worth the wading, because I came across this gem!

Inkkit is a stationery business based in Albuquerque, United States. Every one of their products is completely and utterly covetable. I found it so hard choosing photos to share with you because they were all so cute! I have collated a wee collection of some of my faves for you to flick your eyes over.

You can drool over some more of their pretty packaging products on the blog Inkkit Up.

Blanc Canvas

This beautiful home situated near Malmö in Southern Sweden, is drop. dead. gorgeous! I love the expanse of white walls, the soft neutral tones of the furnishings, and the amazing open plan layout of this former brick vicarage.

This home actually happens to be on the market right now. If only…
