PEACH & STRAWBERRY MUFFIN BAKED OATS (+ a couple of foodie reflections on Byron Bay)

Firstly, a Happy Easter Monday to all who are celebrating! The recipe that follows below is simple, delicious breakfast treat; one that definitely errs on the side of wholesome in the midst of chocolate-drenched April. Secondly, I apologise in advance if the next few posts I write defy the laws of chronology, but such is life […]

PEPPERMINT & STRAWBERRY CHOCOLATE BARK (a revamped version of an old classic!)

Firstly, much love and warm Christmas wishes to all those celebrating today! Over 4 years ago (I cannot believe it was so long ago!) I posted a recipe on this very blog for homemade Peppermint Chocolate Bark after seeing the famous Williams Sonoma original all over the internet and several variations of DIY “imitations” on Pinterest. Interestingly, […]

24 DAYS OF HAPPY, HEALTHY CELEBRATION (cut the stress, get organised & eat deliciously balanced this Christmas)

As I count down to my first Christmas as a mother of 3 in a brand new home that’s barely 1/3 in order, I am simultaneously overjoyed at how blessed I am and, frankly, a little overwhelmed by the sheer enormity of keeping 3 little ones (and myself) in festive mode throughout the month of December. […]

EASY BAKED POTATO WEDGES (with a hint of garlic & thyme)

This is one of the simplest sides we do here at Marzipan HQ. Delicious savoury potato wedges; the perfect accompaniment to toasted sandwiches, veggie burgers and the like. And just as good served with a homemade sauce or dip of choice. I used organic Swedish “delikatess” potatoes (of the red-skinned Cherie variety), but any good […]

BAKED BANANA “FRITTER” SPRING ROLLS & BANANA CHOCOLATE “CREPE” SPRING ROLLS

You may wonder why the words “fritter” and “crepe” appear in the titles of these recipes (and in quotation marks). The first variation is clearly not a fritter at all, as the banana is neither battered or fried, and the second variation is clearly not a crepe. Rather, both are inspired by food memories of […]

SWEET POTATO MINI NACHO BOWLS

Looking for the perfect treat to jazz up your Meatless Monday, Taco Tuesday or Fredagsmys (roughly translates from Swedish as “Friday cosy time” 😀 )? I thought so! Now, before you get started making these delicious Sweet Potato Mini Nacho Bowls, please note that there’s the super-easy version, and there’s the “cheese”-topped version (which is also easy, but takes a […]

WHIPPED SWEET POTATO “CHEESE” DIP

Another “oldie” revisited! This time, it’s a super-easy plant-based spreadable “cheese “, perfect for dipping your favourite vegetable/corn chips or crudités into. The basic preparation technique I use for this is based on how I make baby food from sweet potatoes… which probably doesn’t sound very appealing 😛 , but I promise you it’s fuss-free and, with […]

EASY NUT & SEED PAN-TOASTED DUKKAH

I am currently going through my Instagram archives in an attempt to keep my recipes more organised and easy to locate. It turns out that there’s even more in the captions than I could recall. In fact, a whopping 87 weeks ago I made a super-fast version of dukkah to accompany a cauliflower, chickpea and kale dish that cropped […]

WORLD’S EASIEST 4-INGREDIENT PLANT-BASED HOLLANDAISE SAUCE

Many of my recipes are super simple, like my 3-ingredient plant-based caesar salad dressing. And this recipe is actually based on that very one, made in a pinch in order to have something to dress my asparagus & roasted sweet potato toasted sandwich the other day. And, as this is an extremely short recipe, I’ll keep this post […]

BAKED APPLE PIE SPRING ROLLS

This classic apple pie flavoured version of my dessert spring rolls is sure to please, regardless of the climate you happen to find yourself in right now. If you’re currently enjoying the warmth of summer, I recommend serving these with ice-cream (we had the exact spring rolls pictured with tofu vanilla ice-cream). And if you’re trying to stay cosy as […]
