BERRY BURST BUCKWHEAT MUFFINS

With 6 days to go until baby 3’s due date, I am truly in full-blown nesting mode… and, for me, that includes food preparation (and eating :D ). I have had this recipe hanging around for some time now, but decided to modify it further. It now contains just 1 teaspoon of stevia granules for an […]

SWEET POTATO & KALE CURRY WITH CASHEWS

This humble, hearty Sweet Potato & Kale Curry dish ticks all of my “ideal” boxes. A pleasant kick of heat and fragrant spice combined with a vibrant assortment of plant-based goodies (including some of my favourite vegetables), makes for an exciting vegetarian dish… whether you pledge yourself to a strictly plant-powered way of eating or […]

TOP DECK COOKIE DOUGH NICE CREAM (dairy/refined sugar/gluten-free… and utterly delicious)

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost two and a half years since I first (and last) posted a “nice cream” recipe here. For the uninitiated, nice cream is essentially an ice-cream textured treat based upon the use of one humble ingredient; frozen bananas. And, despite the ease of preparation, the deliciousness and the fact that no nasties are added […]

VEGAN SPICED BUNS (with orange zest & nuts)… + a little announcement

Before I get to the recipe for these yummy buns, I will share both a sneak preview of the buns themselves and my news… simultaneously (two birds, and all of that!). I hope this goes some way to simply explain the reason why I have not been so active in the blogosphere recently. Thankfully the pregnancy […]

QUINOA CHIA PORRIDGE WITH MIXED BERRY COMPOTE & ALMONDS

This truly delicious porridge is perfect for a make-ahead breakfast treat; an interesting, healthy, indulgent and different spin on overnight oats, that takes mere minutes to prepare… and is a great way to use up leftover quinoa. It is wonderful served cold, straight from the fridge or, if you prefer, both the compote and the porridge can be warmed […]

BLUEBERRY MUFFIN BAKED PORRIDGE POTS

A muffin for breakfast with a delicious twist! For a while I have been mentioning my favourite recipes on Instagram, and I am finally playing catch-up and starting to post them, as promised. When I posed the question yesterday, “Which of my baked porridge recipes would you like to see next?”, the winner – by Instagram comment […]

DUKKAH CRUSTED SWEET POTATO FRIES & TAHINI DIPPING SAUCE WITH ROASTED GARLIC

This combination of two simple, but utterly delicious sides, is sure to please. Talented Elaine of Foodbod fame is a woman after my own heart. And so, when she asked me what I would feed her, this recipe I created with the intention of sharing around the start of the year (where has 2015 gone?) sprang […]

HEALTHY MALTED HOT CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE (plus iced chocolate variant)

Two things led directly to the creation of this recipe; a snow storm a few weeks ago (who doesn’t want hot chocolate after being caught in one of those?) and my recent kitchen experiments with immunity boosting “superfoods”, such as maca. This drink is not actually malted at all, but rather gets it’s malty, caramel-y tones from maca powder. […]

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 […]

CRISP(IER) SWEET POTATO FRIES (seasoned with Rosemary-Infused Sea Salt & Fresh Parsley)

On my final Sunday of the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program (program review coming soon!), prompted by Sarah Wilson‘s plea for participants to keep experimenting and avoid wastage by using up leftovers, I made these yummy sweet potato fries. Now, I think it’s important to state from the outset that I am pretty sure deep-frying is the […]
