A spooky savoury snack for Halloween…
Using juicy berries from our amazing raspberry plant, this recipe is a quick and wholesome pudding to whip up. It pleased the youngest raspberry fan in our household and meant that the adults also got to sample the home-grown berries.
Inspired by our wonderful trip to Sardinia, this Italian style salad is full of juicy flavours, textures and holiday memories.
Broccoli and Rice Cakes is back. And we’re baking! In celebration of A-L’s 3rd birthday, this recipe uses three types of strawberry to make a fruity and flavoursome treat. Happy Birthday A-L xx
In search of healthy savoury snacks for me and my toddler, I was inspired to make this savoury version of a granola. It uses store cupboard ingredients and nutritional yeast flakes (which I came across in my new year’s cupboard cleaning mission) to make a snack that can be nibbled on at any time of day. It is highly nutritious and pleased both me and my little lady.
Using left-over ingredients from my Christmas pudding, these mini treats are a ‘healthier’ festive treat. They are extremely quick to make, with no added sugar and no cooking required. The best bit is that your little people will love to help make, decorate/ sabotage, and eat these treats. Happy Christmas!
Bringing a bit of colour and warmth to the dark winter days, this African inspired dish is a recipe that I picked up during our recent travels to Kenya. First tasted on the coast, this Swahili dish uses coconut water and simple spices to create a wholesome and tasty meal that can be eaten with or without an ocean view (see photos…)
This post is a tribute to my cousin Nick. Nick liked to tease me about my vegetarian lifestyle so, many moons ago, I was pleasantly surprised when he rustled up a Melanzane Parmigiana. I fondly remember this rich and flavoursome dish and only now realise the effort that is required to make the blinking thing! I have tried to recreate a similar dish here (but with a few time-saving adaptions).
After a summer of tardy blogging, I’d like to win you over with this quirky and flavoursome Bredie. In this recipe, the kabuki pea (aka marrowfat pea) and green bean join forces in a not-so-typical South African stew (called a Bredie). To my surprise, the dish went down a storm in my family. Plus, I have a confession to make…
Crafted to satisfy my daughter’s obsession with olives, this Butter Bean stew packs a big, Moroccan-flavoured punch. The combination of chunky beans, salty olives, and sweet, juicy tomatoes work wonders in our world.
