VEGAN THAI-INSPIRED (NO)MEATBALLS- quick, easy & flavour-packed

Do you ever borrow from your own recipes to create new ones? That’s basically what’s happened here. Currently hooked as we are on the Panang curry flavours of our go-to tofu dish, I decided to amalgamate them with a plant-based take on Sweden’s most iconic husmanskost meal; meatballs! This incredibly snappy (20 minutes or so […]

VEGAN CRISPY TOFU PANANG (PHANAENG) RED CURRY WITH RICE NOODLES- salty, sour, sweet, satisfying & gluten-free

Returning to Stockholm to be greeted by this dish – as cooked by my husband – is basically receiving the ultimate “Welcome home!” exclamation in food form. After a whirlwind magical content creation + exploration trip to Miami, CocoCay and Nassau (more on that soon. Thank you Joyce and Royal Caribbean!), followed by considerably less […]

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 […]

NO-BAKE MISSISSIPPI MUD PIE – a vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free spin on a classic chocolate treat

There is a reason why my most requested recipe of 2017 (aka, this No-Bake Mississippi Mud Pie), is only making an appearance on this blog today. I’ll get to that and the recipe in a minute (well, actually a few minutes). Today is my birthday, a day I have had mixed feelings about celebrating since […]

PRETTY-IN-PINK SEMLOR (Swedish cream buns, with a vegan twist & extra bling)

This time of year is one of celebration, with Shrove Tuesday, Valentine’s Day and the Lunar New Year knocking at each other’s doors, not to mention all three of our children celebrating birthdays within a one-month period (the first being our pink-obsessed little Lillian). The lazy girl in me has responded to the call to […]

7-DAY PLANT PANTRY MEAL PREP WORKSHOP- save time, save money & cook with me! Starts July 19

It’s not often that I post announcements on my blog, but I’m breaking with tradition today as my very first online cooking workshop goes live tomorrow! How does delicious, wholesome, budget-friendly food – prepped to save you time – starring 2 inexpensive, healthy pantry staples sound? All recipes included in the workshop are made with real […]

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, […]

POTATO & RED PESTO PIZZETTAS WITH ROCKET

Short on time? I empathise! So here’s a short post and a quick recipe. Yes, I am back with another pizzetta variation. And once again the recipe title probably suggests this isn’t pizza in any traditional sense. But if you’re on the search for something tasty, simple and a little different, why not give it […]

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 […]

WATERMELON CELEBRATION CAKE (100% fruity fun!)

At this time last year, I was being transferred from the delivery ward to the maternity ward at SÖS. That’s right; Oliver (aka Baby Marzipan) has just turned 1. I could cry. Oh, wait. I already have! 😛 We’re celebrating the big baby milestone in Australia… in 36°C heat (thank you, Adelaide)! And there couldn’t be […]
