Oh So Simple Strawberry Tart

I’ve had this little recipe waiting to be added for a few weeks now, but I’ve been working on a few house projects (updating my kitchen) and we also took ourselves off for a couple of days to Protaras for my birthday, which was fabulous. I was meeting up with family for the evening and taking in the delights of the Abba tribute band at the Love Boat pub (yes it really was called the Love Boat) and then suffered the next day from the effects of the local wine, ah well! We spent the day on Nissi Beach in […]

Gourmet Veggie Burgers with Hot Sauce and Fries

Right away I’m going to tell you that I had other plans for these burgers, they were supposed to be stuffed with (drum roll please…) avocado. Just a nice slice of avocado stuffed into the centre before baking. But, and this is due to my lack of planning, there was not a ripe avocado in sight! So I’ll try it next time, but if you do fancy adding it into this recipe then you go for it! Please also note that these are soft burgers, so be gentle with them. I know there are a lot of people who are […]

Crumbly Praline Cookies

So, first things first. Sweetness levels of cookies. For all the cakes and cookies I bake, I make them to suit our own tastes and these last 2 years have seen our palettes change dramatically as we’ve moved away from processed foods and maintained our plant based eating habits. What we’ve come to realise is we now don’t like super sweet snacks and desserts and this is coming from a woman who would devour sticky toffee puddings and packs of Thorntons champagne truffles in one sitting. I used to have a ridiculous sweet tooth. But things change, our cravings for […]

Chilli Crepes stuffed with Moroccan Chickpeas and Apricots topped with a Spicy Sauce

I thought I’d try something a bit different and I haven’t made savoury crepes before and this dish just seemed to come together very nicely. It’s a very simple recipe that’s also pretty cheap so is ideal for dinner parties or a tasty family meal. One small addition I would make next time is to mix some spinach through the chickpea blend to add a few more nutrients, unfortunately I left it off my shopping list and forgot all about it. A great excuse to make this again. I’m going to be without the use of a kitchen while I’m […]

Deliciously Decadent Chocolate Date Brownie

I have, what I can only describe, as the mother of all bruises on my right leg. It’s just come up today and I assume it’s from Saturday’s exertions. I’m still a little stiff but thankfully managed to get through my yoga class this morning and I was showing off my battle scars to my gym buddies like a big kid! We’re off to see the family next week and I am very much looking forward to a little socialising and trying out some new restaurants in the London area. I might even treat myself to a little shopping at […]

Chickpea, Mushroom & Olive Bakes served with Spicy Sweet Potato Fries and Fresh Homemade Avocado Salsa

Yesterday I bought myself a box of semolina, this was purely for nostalgic purposes as I used to have semolina pudding and canned peaches as a treat with my grandad when I was younger. I am always amazed to hear that people don’t like semolina and can’t believe I haven’t had any in about 15 years! I don’t think I’ll be able to talk Martin into trying it, too much like rice pudding consistency I think, and he really doesn’t like that, but I might coax him into trying a little, I mean come on… it’s semolina and peaches. I’ve […]
