GOLDEN MILK HOT CHOCOLATE OATS

In need of comfort? I can’t guarantee this will make you feel better. And I certainly wont claim it’s better than a cuddle (what’s better than a cuddle for comfort?). But it is nourishing, it is delicious and it is a treat you can give yourself to make your morning a little cosier. Interested? It’s so easy. […]

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 […]

GOLDEN MILK HOT CHOCOLATE WITH GINGER (a low-sugar, plant-based treat for one)

As I await the arrival of Baby Marzipan (I am currently 38 weeks pregnant… goodness me!), my inner voice urges me to embrace all that is restorative, fortifying and nurturing. Whether that takes the form of wholesome food, a long shower, the use of calming essential oils (lavender is always a favourite) or a prenatal yoga […]

SPICED SWEET POTATO PANCAKES WITH TOFFEE NUT CRUNCH

I have now reached week 35 of this amazing third pregnancy and my focus is (rather naturally) on nesting, resting and comfort food… lots of it too! It’s hard to believe it was exactly 3 years ago that I was starting to breathe deeply again, knowing I was at the tail end of my high risk […]

MINI PUMPKIN PECAN PIES (quick, easy, IQS-style, low-fructose, gluten-free, vegan deliciousness in mini pie form!)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and relatives (and anyone else who may be celebrating today)! It was 2 years ago (and with a touch of trepidation), that I decided to celebrate Thanksgiving for the first time. Since then it has become a tradition for me to host a cosy crafting/seasonal eating event for my Stockholm […]

SPICED ALMOND MILK HOT CHOCOLATE

I have decided that tonight I will attempt to catch up on news in the blogosphere. But before I see what my friends have been up to, I want to quickly share a recipe that I’ve had a few requests for via Instagram. The other day, lovely Lillian, the brains and beauty behind Sugar and Cinnamon, […]

SPICED CHAI SMOOTHIE WITH COCONUT CRUSHED ICE (pretending summer’s not over)

Firstly, I love chai! Secondly, despite my recent post mentioning some rather intense events that unfolded during a trip to India years ago, there were some truly wonderful moments too. Some of my fondest memories of India involve sipping chai with local people in the village where we ended up staying. The chai I drank there was always […]

SPRING CLEANING FROM WITHIN: RAW FOOD, JUICING & MEDITATION (AKA did I pick the craziest week ever to detox?!)

Yes, we’ve recently celebrated Easter and, amid the many significances of this special time of year, it’s a fabulous time for the bakers among us, right? So why, oh WHY did I pick Easter week to reevaluate my eating habits and try raw food for the first time? Could it be the subtle influence of Deepak’s soothing voice as […]
