CHOCOLATE KNICKERBOCKER GLORY WITH NECTARINES & A SESAME WAFER a new plant-based spin on an old tradition

We’re welcoming the warmer weather here in Sweden with this somewhat healthier spin on an old-fashioned British treat. If you’re not from the UK or familiar with the term Knickerbocker Glory, you’ll no doubt be curious as to what kind of concoction it is. Supposedly invented somewhere down by the English seashore in the 1930s, […]

PEACH & STRAWBERRY MUFFIN BAKED OATS (+ a couple of foodie reflections on Byron Bay)

Firstly, a Happy Easter Monday to all who are celebrating! The recipe that follows below is simple, delicious breakfast treat; one that definitely errs on the side of wholesome in the midst of chocolate-drenched April. Secondly, I apologise in advance if the next few posts I write defy the laws of chronology, but such is life […]

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. […]

ACAI & BERRY PORRIDGE BOWL

This acai-boosted porridge bowl is a variation on my standard blueberry overnight oats. I used to tote overnight oats to the office in a mason jar before going on maternity leave. They were my go-to pregnancy breakfast option and toting was convenient, but I can assure you my shaken-around-oats-in-a-jar never looked pretty by the time I sat […]

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 […]

BAKED BANANA “FRITTER” SPRING ROLLS & BANANA CHOCOLATE “CREPE” SPRING ROLLS

You may wonder why the words “fritter” and “crepe” appear in the titles of these recipes (and in quotation marks). The first variation is clearly not a fritter at all, as the banana is neither battered or fried, and the second variation is clearly not a crepe. Rather, both are inspired by food memories of […]

SUPER GREEN MATCHA MYLKSHAKE (+ a Food of Thrones Weeks 2 & 3 recap)

As those of you who read my previous post or follow my Instagram account know, the Game of Thrones-inspired creative food challenge known as #FoodofThrones2016 continues. And with it have come the inspired creations of connections new and old/far and wide. Instead of begrudging the week that stretches between episodes, I now genuinely look forward to seeing what others will come up with. […]

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 […]

“SNICKERS” BAKED QUINOA PORRIDGE

Peanutty, chocolaty, gooey, comforting, surprisingly healthy (if that matters to you), arguably-better-than-Snickers breakfast deliciousness! This recipe was the result of serious pregnancy cravings for chocolate/peanuts/oats, combined with a need to use up some quinoa flakes. Don’t you just love a craving-meets-food-waste-fix combo? A perfect weekend breakfast treat for two, if you feel like sharing with someone special… or you can […]

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 […]
