Plenty of indulgent blow outs and healthy everyday treats to keep you on track.
I try my best to make desserts as healthy as possible so that they can be enjoyed more often without sacrificing texture or flavour. I have been experimenting a lot with vegan desserts so there are plenty of those.
Here’s a great way to get your little one to gobble down lots of fruit for morning tea! It’s strictly a ‘sometimes’ treat, but those times are going to go down in history as Mum’s 10-out-of-10 effort! (With little actual effort involved.) Awesome.
To boost the nutritional value, I’ve snuck in some mashed up avocado with the melted milk chocolate chips and soy milk. Your little one will be none-the-wiser and your secret is safe with me. Promise. (more…)
Earlier this year I made it one of my goals to make sure I cook the gorgeous recipes I bookmark on Pinterest. Today I’m pleased to say I’m keeping that goal, and it feels really good. Turns out it tastes good too.
I’m currently holidaying at my in-laws, and with all the extra pairs of hands to watch Poppy, I’ve got mine free for a spot of baking. (more…)
I had a few pesky overripe bananas in my fruit bowl last weekend, and when that happens there is only one thing to do.
Make banana bread.
I’d also just received a jar of Beerenberg Blood Orange Marmalade. I’m not a marmalade fan at all, but this one is much sweeter than other ones I’ve tasted, so I decided to tweak my usual dense and moist banana bread recipe and top it with a sweet glaze. (more…)
People always ask me “How do you work from home with a baby around?”.
My answer is always the same: “With much difficulty!”.
Today’s post will show you just how quickly an innocent carrot cake can become the target of chubby fingers and a lemon-sucking free-for-all. (more…)
Don’t have dessert or drinks planned for NYE? Never fear, I’ve got you covered.
This boozy, summery granita is super simple to make and oh-so-Pretty In Pink! (My favourite 80s movie). You’ve probably already stocked up on champagne for the 2012 toast, and there are plenty of ripe watermelons around right now (sorry, Northern Hemisphere friends), so this will be a cinch.
Enjoy it on it’s own or with more champagne poured over. I also served it on top of oysters on xmas day and it was delicious!
