Coconut Milk Yoghurt (Dairy-Free Yoghurt)

Finding coconut yoghurt, by this I mean the yoghurt made with coconut milk and not coconut flavoured dairy-milk yoghurt, has been a revolution for me. Suddenly I was able to enjoy overnight oats again – which I think are the most amazing way to have oats for breakfast. I could use it as a substitute…

Double Chocolate Pecan Cranberry Bars

These have got to be my favourite Christmas treat of all time. Some I enjoy because it is Christmas and it seems only right to have them, these are a different story completely. They offer up the best of all things. They are chewy, yet crunchy and soft and gooey. There is a little saltiness…

Raw Raspberry Slice

I know that food trends can be quite controversial and I hear a lot of criticism against gluten-free diets and all the alternative milks which have come to market. I quite like that idea that people are concerned about what is going into their food and what they are eating – even if is it…

Chocolate Chunk Granola Bars

School has started, and my cupboards are now filled with tiny packets of ‘suitable’ school snacks. It is a particular bug-bear of mine, the whole school snack thing. I grew up without a school snack and didn’t seem to suffer for it. I also find my children eat their main meals much better when they…

Easy Pizza Dough Recipe (Freezer Pizza Dough)

I seem to turn every holiday we have into a collection of culinary experiences. Our trip to New York, last year, was certainly that. My list of must experiences for our trip was completely food related, with the exception of the Opera and MOMA. After years of waiting, I finally got to go to Dean…

Coffee, Cashew & Cacao Smoothie

Smoothies are a huge part of our lifestyle, and especially important in our morning routine, with at least one of us pulling out the blender to make one every day. I’m pretty consistent with making the Mango Turmeric Smoothie at the beginning of each week, but then I usually vary it for the rest of…

Romanis Wrap

It might seem a little ridiculous to post a recipe for a sandwich, however, when I was introduced to this by a friend I was surprised at how much I loved it. The next day I couldn’t stop craving the different textures and flavour, so I went to grab the ingredients in time for lunch….

Glazed Lentil Walnut Apple Loaf

When I was a young girl, I had a dear friend in my class for a couple of years, before she moved to the other side of Canada. We remained in touch for several years, albeit she was much better than I was at staying in touch, before we lost touch for good. Many years…

Soba Noodles with Sesame Seeds

Every once in a while, I find a recipe which I find I am making again, and again. I am easily bored with food, so this is quite unusual for me. On the salad front, I am continuously making the taco salad recipe – the lime vinaigrette is so light and refreshing and the tortilla…

Meringue Roulade with Raspberries and Rose Water

I remember, not so long ago, someone making a comment about meringue being boring. I suppose, if you think about it, there isn’t much more that can be done, which hasn’t be done to it already. I, however, find meringue to be fascinating. The idea that egg, mixed with sugar can support a range of…

Stewed Berries with Porridge

If I could have a cooked breakfast everyday, I think I would be most happy. Okay, lets be realistic, a breakfast of pastries and sweets would best – but not realistic. When the weather is cooler and the threat of snow is in the air, a warm cosy breakfast is the best way to start…

Stuffed Peppers

Lately I have been on a quest to find some side dishes to accompany our main for dinner. I wanted something relatively easy to prepare in advance and didn’t include the usual meat filling. With our lives being incredibly busy at the moment, I am trying to simplify my life and as such, simplify the…
