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 […]

WATERMELON CELEBRATION CAKE (100% fruity fun!)

At this time last year, I was being transferred from the delivery ward to the maternity ward at SÖS. That’s right; Oliver (aka Baby Marzipan) has just turned 1. I could cry. Oh, wait. I already have! 😛 We’re celebrating the big baby milestone in Australia… in 36°C heat (thank you, Adelaide)! And there couldn’t be […]

PANCAKE CAKE (with whipped coconut cream & banana)

As I sit here and type these words, I find myself feeling nostalgic about last Christmas already. Less than a month ago, on Christmas Day, my family and I enjoyed this very Pancake Cake as part of a lazy brunch that lasted literally half the day. 24 days into 2017 and aspects of my New Year’s […]

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, […]

NUT BUTTER BROWNIE TRUFFLE BITES (plant-based, gluten-free & low-fructose)

Call me crazy, but after much deliberation followed by a split-second decision, I started doing PIIT28 last weekend. If you’ve ever heard of Pilates enthusiast extraordinaire Cassey Ho, you probably know what it is. For those who don’t know, it stands for Pilates Intense Interval Training and is a 28-day fitness reboot that’s done in 28 minutes per […]

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. […]

CHOC-MINT MATCHA CRUNCH BARS (with novelty Winterfell wrapper printable)

With literally minutes left to celebrate Halloween here in Sweden, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share one of the most requested recipes I’ve shown previews of on Instagram. Many people mistakenly thought I had purchased a “Winterfell chocolate bar” when I first shared it during #foodofthrones2016, which of course I was rather chuffed […]

CINNAMON & WALNUT BUNS (a vegan, refined sugar-free take on the Swedish Classic)

And I am back with another belated recipe share! This time it’s the Swedish fika favourite: cinnamon buns. But these are not made of the same buttery dough as the original, more commonly known kind. In fact, they are dairy-free. And if that’s not enough of a departure from the classic variety, these ones are also refined sugar-free. […]

EASY CHOCOLATE ORANGE BARK (a low-sugar alternative to Lindt Intense Orange)

A few weeks back, feeling like something a little more adventurous than my usual daily dose of plain dark chocolate, I decided to check out Lindt Intense Orange. The 85%-90% Lindt varieties are a staple in my home, so I have nothing against the brand, but was rather shocked to find that Lindt Intense Orange contains […]

ACAI & BERRY PORRIDGE BOWL

This acai-boosted porridge bowl is a variation on my standard blueberry overnight oats. I used to tote overnight oats to the office in a mason jar before going on maternity leave. They were my go-to pregnancy breakfast option and toting was convenient, but I can assure you my shaken-around-oats-in-a-jar never looked pretty by the time I sat […]
