A small collection of videos – some recipes, some of our house renovations and some from our travels. These are all available on my YouTube channel –

All music used in the videos is by Irish artists.

Our renovation project. We bought a small cottage in Lithuania that is in much need of repair. Please take a look inside! (View video)

Pumpkin Cupcakes
These pumpkin cupcakes are absolutely delicious. They’re a bit like carrot cake, but even nicer. I’ve topped them with a cream cheese frosting and a spider’s web and spider for Halloween. (View video)

Pumpkin Soup
The addition of peanut butter (homemade, of course – see my recipe here) makes this a voluptuous, creamy, silky soup, perfect for cold evenings. Delicious with a slice of soda bread – see below. (View video)

Soda Bread
A slight twist on traditional Irish Soda Bread, this recipe uses yoghurt instead of buttermilk, giving the bread a lovely crumbly texture. I’ve also added seeds for flavour & crunch. You can substitute buttermilk for the yoghurt or leave the seeds out, as you prefer. (View video)

    Hi I’m Roz. I’m from Malaysia. I really love watching your video about how you manage to buy and make a major renovation to a new home. I really love the design that you’ve made and it’s gives me an idea and also inspire me to work hard to own a simple home like you do.
