Super Healthy Whole-wheat and Oat Pancakes, great for a hearty weekend breakfast

We’ve been looking at ways in which to get more omega-3 in our diet and the ground flax seed has been a great addition to my recipes.  Took me a while to realise that it was linseed in this country, so I’m super pleased with getting my hands on some. When the weekend comes, we do like to splurge a little on pancakes and now that I have the flax, I thought I’d try some new mixtures to get some great breakfast treats.  These pancakes are really filling as well and will keep you going until lunch time with no […]

Tiny Houses – My new found love of small scale living

If you’d have asked me 2 weeks ago what I thought of “Tiny Houses” I would have thought you were talking about a bungalow! But oh how my eyes have been opened! I LOVE tiny houses. In fact I may be a little obsessed with them. This is a far cry from what most of us Brits think about when it comes to property, we’re used to dreaming of that bigger house, that extra room, that better conservatory, but honestly, there’s just the 2 of us and we take up very little room, so we have no need what so […]

Roasted Squash and White Bean Salad with Tahini Dressing, delicious and so simple to make.

We bought a fabulous squash from the fruit market the other day and although I haven’t done a lot of recipes with squash, I’m loving the different tastes you can create, from salads to curries and when you roast the seeds instead of tossing them in the bin, you will realise they are a taste sensation and shouldn’t be wasted! This was a really simple recipe and apart from roasting the squash and soaking my beans, it doesn’t take very long to prepare and you can do it earlier in the day and pop it in the fridge ready to […]

Quick and easy Coffee and Walnut Cookies, Egg and Dairy Free, So scrumptious, they won’t last long around friends!

I’ve been trying to look for alternative flavours for my cookies, just to mix it up a little bit and I’d recently been thinking of a coffee and walnut cake (I do love a good coffee and walnut cake!) and I realised, I could just make them into cookie form, so I did just that.  I don’t know why coffee and walnuts go so fabulously together, it just works a treat. These cookies took 25 minutes from start to finish, so you can make them anytime you have a spare half hour going spare. Coffee and Walnut Cookies Makes 10 […]

5 top places to go this New Years Eve to take a memorable step into 2013!

I know it’s only September but it’s usually this time of year that many people are deciding what to do at new year.  The Christmas adverts have started on the tv, the weather is cooling down (well for us anyways) and every year I sit and think about places I’d love to be when the clock strikes midnight on new years eve and we enter a brand new year. Regardless of how the current year is gone, there is always that little spark signalling a new beginning, a chance to start over again or an opportunity to top the previous […]
