scandi kitchens | made from scratch Kitchen’s truly are the heart of any home, there where every meal is lovingly made, where you enjoy those meals and where everyone tends to drift towards during any party! So it’s not hard to image why people have such a deep love for their kitchens – I’ve always had a very soft spot for either all white or black kitchens with touches of blonde wood and marble, which is very obvious from my pinterest board! I love the completely neutral tones, minimal lines, how it’s forever classic and a base that you can easily add colour when the mood strikes through flowers, beautiful kitchenware, art or of course through delicious meals! Everyone has a different dream kitchen, I’d love to know what yours is. x

Summer really is right around the corner and that means ice cream weather – it quickly becomes a little tradition of ours to wander to the dairy (corner shop) and get a ice cream while we go for a evening stroll, it’s just such a lovely way to spend a evening! So I thought what could be more perfect than whipping up a quick ice cream treat for yourself or your friends when they come over for a lazy summer BBQ.

Whenever I make a batch of ginger thins I always freeze half of the mixture so that I can whip up a few cookies whenever the mood strikes, there is something so lovely about having a homemade cookie without having to do any prep work. I’m also yet to meet anyone who doesn’t have a tub of delicious Tip Top Hokey Pokey Ice Cream tucked safely away in their freezer – it’s an absolute kiwi icon and is such a crowd pleaser. So I thought what could be more perfect than combining delicious crispy ginger thins with smooth crunchy hokey pokey and making a a few ice cream sandwich – the end result is amazing and the best part is how wonderfully simple they are to whip up for any summer party. x

7 Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a really lovely lazy weekend – ours was full of catching up with our wonderful family and breakfast for dinner, it was perfect! I only just stumbled upon this stunning bright and white home via Coco Lapine Design Blog this morning and after then clicking through to the original source, Alla Bilder I simply had to share it – this home is absolutely stunning! I’ve always been a huge fan of bright white homes with touches of either bright colours or soft natural tones, white really is such a wonderful pallet to play with and of course can easily be changed when the mood strikes.I’m completely smitten with the stunning white dining room with gold accents, the cork headboard in the bedroom and the gorgeous study nook – everything really is too perfect for words! Be sure to take a peek at the rest of this beautiful home here. x


Father Rabbit



Father-Rabit-setting Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a really lovely weekend – my hubby was away all weekend apart of the 48 hour film festival so I had a lovely couple of days pottering around the home and having a huge autumn spring clean – it’s so so therapeutic! I also had the absolute pleasure of lunching and shopping with some very lovely ladies and visiting the beautiful Father Rabbit store with my friend! If you haven’t had the chance to take a peek at this beautiful shop, you simply must! From the all white interior, the impeccable display of the most beautiful items ever and of  course how calm and inviting it is – it really is so lovely with far too many gorgeous things to choose from, is it ok to say that I just want it all?! x


Goodness me, is anyone else feeling like this year is just slipping by – how are we almost at the end of April, thats almost surreal! I’m so sorry for the lack of posts over the last few days, I’ve been playing catchup after finishing my last stunning wedding cake for the season last weekend. So since then I’ve been chatting to some very lovely people about future baking classes and of course planning a few lovely new things for Made From Scratch that I’m really excited to share with you once everything is settled – oh and how gorgeous is this afternoon setting by This is Glamours, how perfect would all your meetings be if they were like this?! I was also incredibly flattered to be featured on the wonderful Endemic World over the weekend – if you haven’t had a look at their art work, you must, you’ll want everything in a heart beat!

 Yay we’re finally having some gorgeous Spring weather – but it’s still very much on the chilly side! I couldn’t think of  anything better than turning on the oven to warm your home up and make a few yummy pies – especially if you turn it into a little dessert table and have people over for dinner for a ‘yay it’s Spring party’! How absolutely stunning is this dessert table – all the sweet treats that you see are made by the very lovely To Have and To Hold,  the stunning photos by Sutherland Kovach and all the props, flowers and styling by the enormously talented Blush Flowers. I couldn’t think of a better excuse that to potter in the kitchen. x
