Banana Bread with Pears and Honeyed Chocolate Sauce

Paleo Banana Bread with Pears and Honeyed Chocolate Sauce

        So stoked on this Paleo Banana Bread with Pears and Honeyed Chocolate Sauce, for reals, it’s gluten and grain free, super moist and indulgently delicious. All I wanted today (and most days) was something rich and chocolately, warm and comforting, with a nice hot chai, and it doesn’t get much better […]

roasted ratatouille with sunflower seed pesto

Roasted Ratatouille with Sunflower Seed Pesto

  Rrratatouille, it’s worth making, not only is it a palatable way to enjoy a smorgasbord of summer vegetable abundance, just the word ratatouille is fun to say. I love to enjoy ratatouille in a number of ways, traditionally it is a slowly stewed dish with herbes de provence, but I also love roasting it and […]

home made hot sauce

Homemade Hot Sauce

  Just like momma used to make… a little smoky, a touch of sweet, a lot of spicy,a flavour bomb explosion to douse all your favourite foods. My momma didn’t make hot sauce, but if she did I imagine she’d opt for a simple and delicious recipe such as this. Tomatoes, garlic and a whole […]

Golden Turmeric Milk

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about Immune health. All this talk of the next pandemic gives me the heeby jeebies and I hate to think of the suffering occurring in West Africa right now. It’s hard not to think of the possibility of Ebola spreading, and what our action plan will be. For now, […]

Make Your Own Chai Tea Concentrate

  Chai is a staple in India, and for good reason, hot or cold, the medicinal deliciousness of a flavour combo that’s been around longer than you can say Saraswati is always and forever off the hook. What I don’t love, is sitting around for an hour waiting for the amazing herbs, roots and seeds […]

Paleo Lamb Sliders 3 Ways

  These little babies are gooooood. I mean, why have one burger when you can have 3, each uniquely delicious, really there’s no comparison.   Lamb is one of my favourite meats, it’s so delicate and tender when cooked just right.

Mexican Chicken with Stewed Sweet Peppers & Pilaff

  Bueno! A perfect meal to celebrate the 5th of May. Even though Cinco de Mayo doesn’t have much to do with us Northern folk, it always feels nice to celebrate with the rest of the continent. If we looked at life that way we’d have a reason to celebrate every day! Other than the […]

cookies and cream tarts with fall fruits

Cookies and Cream Tarts with Fall Fruits

These little raw tarts and adorned with the last local fruits of the season, oh how it pains me to type that. The sheer beauty of the grapes, blackberries and plums demanded something precious and extravagant to adorn. What better than a little chocolate tartlet with an intensely amazing creamy centre, no added sugar, not […]

Coconut Lemongrass Chicken

Some days tiredness sticks to my bones and I can’t shake it. Gone are the days of solid night sleeps. Even when my precious darling doesn’t wake up, I still do, I gently place my hand on his little heaving chest and drift back to nowhere land. Today we dozed off together, a little hand […]
