ROSEMARY-INFUSED SEA SALT (a perfect pantry staple or homemade gift)

This was the salt that I used to season my “epic” (to pinch a Daniel Churchill term) Crisp(ier) Sweet Potato Fries the other day. The lovely, subtle rosemary taste/aroma makes this salt a versatile pantry staple or, prettily packaged in cute glass containers, an ideal party favour/hostess gift/homemade Christmas gift; an aromatic salt that can be used for […]

MINI PUMPKIN PECAN PIES (quick, easy, IQS-style, low-fructose, gluten-free, vegan deliciousness in mini pie form!)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and relatives (and anyone else who may be celebrating today)! It was 2 years ago (and with a touch of trepidation), that I decided to celebrate Thanksgiving for the first time. Since then it has become a tradition for me to host a cosy crafting/seasonal eating event for my Stockholm […]

THE BEST VEGAN CHOCOLATE MOUSSE BY IQS, SPOOKIFIED (Happy Halloween… BOO!)

I made this yummy IQS chocolate mousse (purportedly the best vegan chocolate mousse around) after seeing it suggested as a healthy Halloween treat on iquitsugar.com the other day. I loved their suggestion of turning the chocolate mousse cups into spooky little diorama treats!   These were super-easy to assemble; approximately 100 x less labour intensive than baking and decorating Halloween cupcakes. […]

IQS-STYLE CARAMEL SLICE (an egg/nut/gluten/sugar-free treat, just in time for Halloween!)

This delectable Caramel Slice is an IQS-inspired treat, closely based on the fabulous recipe by Steph from I Quit Sugar, posted a while back on iquitsugar.com (click here to view the original recipe). It is not one of the recipes featured in the I Quit Sugar 8 Week-Program, however I admit I did have a piece (or two)… […]

SPARKLING ICED GREEN TEA INFUSED WITH MINT, LIME & BLUEBERRIES (sugar-free refreshment!)

On this – the hottest* day I have experienced in Stockholm during 2014 – I spontaneously threw together a refreshing iced tea drink that manages to combine some of my favourite things; sparkling water (I could drink litres!), green tea, ice, blueberries, mint and lime. An easy-to-make, beautiful drink that promotes beauty from the inside out! SPARKLING ICED GREEN […]

OUR FOOD REVOLUTION WEEK! (cooking with Poh, Jamie Oliver, Maximillian Lundin, friends & kids… phew!)

Hi lovelies! Hope you all had a fabulously foodie Food Revolution Day (or a good regular Friday the 16th of May, if you didn’t take part ;) ). I “cheated” a little again this year and celebrated FRD in numerous ways over multiple days (not that Jamie would mind, I am sure). My week began in a cooking […]

FOOD REVOLUTION DAY 2014 (get onboard with Jamie Oliver & a global community of foodies of all ages on May 16!)

There’s just one week to go until Food Revolution Day is upon us again. Haven’t heard of it before? You’re welcome to check out my post about what we got up to for FRD 2013. For FDR info in a nutshell, read on. Or you can get all the information you possibly need, plus tips, links, […]

SUGAR-FREE EASTER TREATS & BEETROOT RED VELVET CUPCAKES (for an IQS-inspired celebration)

It seems as though I am always in the midst of some kind of health-kick around the approach of Easter! Maybe it’s the masochist in me, but I’d prefer to think it’s simply a matter of loving the challenge of creative problem solving. Baking is a joy to me, especially on festive occasions. So, not to be deterred […]

SIMPLE HOLIDAY-THEMED CHEVRON BUFFET LABELS (another little printable gift to you)

And hot on the heels of the thank you tags and hot chocolate jar labels, come the quasi-retro chevron buffet labels! Designed for an Advent-themed crafting night supper I held for the girls three weeks ago (on the other side of the planet from where I now sit and type!), my original buffet labels had all […]

SIMPLE HOLIDAY-THEMED CHEVRON THANK YOU TAGS (a FREE downloadable printable for you)

Having whipped these up quickly to compliment the labels I’d already created for my Christmas hot chocolate mix jars, I thought I’d share them here (a little pre-Christmas gift) in case anyone is searching for a simple holiday-themed printable thank you tag. My previous thank you tag post with free downloadable template continues to get […]
