2017: LET’S DO THIS & DO IT WELL! (my annual visualisation mood board)

In amongst the cooking prep in our brand new place, the study (new for 2016), the content creation work (also new for 2016) and being with all three children (yep, another gift of 2016) there’s been one big thing on my mind over the past two days; setting my intentions (or #goals, if you will) […]

GREEN KITCHEN STORIES SUPPERCLUB AT URBAN DELI

An alternative name for this post could well be “We came, we ate, we listened/chatted/enjoyed!”, as this pretty much sums up my experience of meeting for the first time both the couple behind the incomparable Green Kitchen Stories, David and Luise, and Sara, the bento design queen of London (known in blog & Instagram circles as shisodelicious). After […]

TURMERIC FUDGE + BONUS OMBRE CHIA PUDDING BY THE ARTFUL FOODIE (& Food of Thrones 2016 update)

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 […]

COCONUT CREAM FRUSHI (wholesome sweet “sushi” with fresh fruit)

I know it’s unusual and certainly far from traditional, but trust me, this frushi (or “fruit sushi”) really tastes delish! And I’m not usually a fan of “deceptive” foods (that is to say, something that looks like something it’s not), but in the case of frushi, I believe I can allow myself to be somewhat playful. If […]

BANOFFEE PIE WAFFLES WITH RAW TOFFEE SAUCE (vegan, low-sweetener & gluten-free)

Love banoffee pie? Love waffles? Feel like an indulgent, utterly delicious treat sans refined sugar/eggs/gluten/dairy? These are probably my favourite plant-based waffles, hence featuring them for my daughter’s 2nd birthday party “waffle bar” last year! Yes, this post is THAT belated… it’s her 3rd birthday today! So, in honour of this special day and in dedication to my sweet little […]

HERE’S TO A FABULOUS 2016! (my annual visualisation mood board)

As New Year’s Eve rolls around again, the item on the top of my to-do list (aside from cooking!) has been the creation of my annual visualisation mood board! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it is the perfect way for a “visual person” to set a positive intention for the coming year and far better than creating a […]
