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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

WORLD’S EASIEST 3-INGREDIENT PLANT-BASED CAESAR DRESSING

As it says on the proverbial tin, I do believe this is the easiest alternative to a Caesar dressing you will find. I posted it on Instagram a long time ago, but pointing people to a recipe on my blog is far more convenient than directing them to “look way back in my Instagram gallery […]

I QUIT SUGAR 8-WEEK PROGRAM, ROUND 3 (Clean Week and beyond in review)

It has now been a few weeks since the last round (my third) of the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program wrapped up, and although there where similarities between this round and previous ones I have participated in, on a personal note, some new things certainly came to light. As always, the recipes were wonderful and the […]

I QUIT SUGAR 8-WEEK PROGRAM, ROUND 3 (the first 3 weeks in review)

This is my third time around, doing sugar-free the IQS way. As always, it’s a fascinating (and delicious) process. And already significant health-related revelations have come to light, which I will delve into later. But I’ll start with the food. No doubt the best place to start… WHAT I HAVE BEEN EATING Week 1 arrived and the program kicked off with […]

I QUIT SUGAR… AGAIN! (IQS 8-Week Program, weeks 3 – 8 in review)

Hello friends! I have been meaning to post a review of my last round of the IQS 8-Week Program for a couple of weeks now, so before this truly becomes “old news”, let’s get right down to the nuts and bolts of it, shall we? WHAT I ATE   Week 3 kicked off and, despite being at the […]

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 […]

I QUIT SUGAR… AGAIN! (IQS 8-Week Program, weeks 1 & 2 in review)

Right at the very last minute, literally a day before the registrations closed for the new round of the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program, I found myself not only signed up, but appointed an IQS Ambassador* by the IQS team! I hardly ever check personal mail at work (and never Facebook), but I happened to log in […]

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, […]
