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 […]


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 […]

HOMEMADE MULTI-SEED CRACKERS (my mother-in-law’s dairy/gluten-free “secret” recipe!)

I received many requests for this recipe when I first shared these crackers on Instagram, but I had to secure the go-ahead from my mother-in-law before sharing. Well, just in time for Swedish midsummer picnic time, here it is… and I promise that you will not regret giving this recipe a go! A few years ago, my […]


As those of you who read my previous post or follow my Instagram account will be aware, I have unleashed my inner Game of Thrones-loving nerd and started a creative food challenge (known as #FoodofThrones2016). What began as a totally spontaneous and, dare I say it, self-indulgent exercise (in basically just letting my imagination roam […]

HOMEMADE OVERNIGHT OATS KIT DELUXE (a DIY gift that’s fun to make & nice to receive!)

These Homemade Overnight Oat Kits may just be the perfect homemade gift for a foodie, breakfast-loving friend! I gave these kits as gifts when I hosted our annual pre-Christmas food and crafting day a couple of weeks ago. With one of my friends about to jet off to NYC, the others busy with little ones and myself very pregnant, I […]

VEGAN CHOCOLATE FUDGE CAKE POPS (with matcha white chocolate crumbles)

Firstly, I feel compelled to say that the making and assembly of cake pops from scratch is a labour of love. Consider the number of steps involved, from the baking of a cake, to the preparation of frosting, to the melting of chocolate (or, indeed, the making of chocolate!) and the decoration of each cake […]

SIMPLE LAVENDER SALT SCRUB (a quick, thrifty and beautiful homemade spa-in-a-jar gift)

Allow me to jump right in and begin this post by stating that this scrub works. It really works. Not only will it leave your skin cleansed and moisturised, but you will smell gorgeous too (if lavender is your thing, as it is mine). Moreover, it is inexpensive to make, simple to prepare (my toddlers helped me […]

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 […]

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)… […]

RAW VEGAN COCONUT CHOCOLATE PRALINES (with pistachios & spirulina)

Hi lovelies! I am posting this recipe due to requests I have received via my Instagram account (hi there, IG peeps!). The original recipe for both the coconut filling and raw chocolate coating is by the lovely SR Healthy Lifestyle, who was kind enough to allow me to recreate what was already pretty perfect, really. I wanted to make something that […]
