CARAMELISED FIG SKILLET PIZZA-STYLE PANCAKES + farewell to this blog + a journey from an anonymous food blog to cookbook, part 1

It is with a very sentimental and somewhat heavy heart that I announce the impending closure of this particular blog chapter. Unless you’ve shared the good, bad and everything in between via a blog before, you probably cannot understand the attachment I have to a place that has given me the ability to connect, express […]

50 THINGS ABOUT ME (part 2)

Almost a year to the day after I shared part one of my ‘5o things about me’ post, I return with the remaining facts, in all their randomness… though some are in direct response to questions I have been asked via Instagram. Again, I was initially tagged to participate in this blogging “challenge” by Cassie […]

GRILLED NECTARINE & AVOCADO PIZZETTAS (and some reflections on anxiety)

As summer creeps back in (thank you, Sweden*!), it’s time to celebrate with family, friends and perfectly summery festive food! These pizzettas are a take on my popular Nectarine & Avocado Toasties of a couple of years back. Made simply with Mexican pita breads and cashew cheese, they’re a light, simple lunch or wholesome addition to your […]

KICKING SUGAR TO THE CURB (some myths busted + a giveaway spot on the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program)

**UPDATE** The competition is now closed and the winner was drawn fairly (live on Snapchat) and randomly using a random name picker tool. Congratulations @dromvittran and thanks so much for the interest everyone! I wish I could give you all a place on the program. For those who are interested in joining this round, it’s […]

ICED MOCHA MYLKSHAKES (with a superfood boost)

A customisable treat that anyone can enjoy, these frosty mocha shakes are a perfect pick-me-up, containing extra protein and superfoods for lasting energy and an endurance boost. Originally created for the Food of Thrones theme of Redemption, I dedicated this recipe to the love-starved “black sheep” of A Song of Ice and Fire. And, while treats […]

CHOCOLATE & FENNEL LACTATION COOKIES (gluten/fructose/dairy-free & IQS-friendly… with no brewers yeast)

Before I launch into this post, I feel compelled to state that I am hesitant to call this recipe a “lactation cookie” recipe, even though it is based on the standard lactation cookie principles (sans brewers yeast). Firstly, there’s a deliciously unusual cookie flavour profile made up of low-sugar, gluten/dairy-free ingredients and a recipe that’s customisable… and thus is […]

CHUNKY MONKEY BANANA BREAD GRANOLA by I Quit Sugar (+ a Healthy Breakfast Cookbook review from a veggie perspective)

Prior to Oliver’s arrival, I was given a copy of the Healthy Breakfast Cookbook by I Quit Sugar and had the opportunity to test some of the recipes (and do a little make-ahead meal prepping too before I headed for the maternity ward!). With the next round of the 8-Week Program about to kick off (registrations close in just a few […]

BROWNIE BATTER NUT BUTTER (fudgy, chocolaty, wholesome & delicious)

As the title of this post/recipe suggests, you can expect this nut butter creation to taste like delicious fudgy, chocolate brownie batter. When I posted this on Instagram yesterday, I had many requests for the recipe. So, for all those who asked (and anyone else who may be interested), here it is… and, honestly, it’s […]

WHOLESOME GINGERBREAD COOKIES (and an update on Baby Marzipan)

Before I get to the recipe, it is with a full and happy heart that I share with you the news that our long-awaited “Baby Marzipan” (now known as Oliver ❤ ) arrived on February 28, at 10:56pm. For those of you who may be interested in the birth story, I am considering sharing it […]

RAW ALMOND & CHOC-CHIP COOKIES

An alternative to the ubiquitous bliss ball, these easy-to-make cookies are low-sweetener, dairy-free and egg-free, with a nutty protein boost. Perfect bite-sized treats to curb a sweet craving or provide some extra energy between meals. Speaking of energy, as I sit here editing this recipe (that I first drafted a year ago!), I find myself far more pregnant than […]
