Jump to recipe Leave a comment I think you already know that I am a self-declared breakfast nut. Yep. I wake up in the mornings starving and craving good food. Chia puddings, healthier pancakes, smashed avo on a slice of sourdough, fluffy banana slice, mascarpone scrolls, baked oats, overnight oats, they’re all great. But most mornings, I head straight for the granola cupboard. And this date and chocolate granola, my oh my. It’s good. And I mean, it’s GOOOOOOD. If you’ve ever thought: “I’d like to eat more healthily in the morning but all the low sugar granolas taste like cardboard”, then t ..read more

Jump to recipe Leave a comment Firstly, how good does that runny egg look? Ahh, I’ve been craving smashed avo on toast for weeks now – and when that craving hits, I have gotten into the habit of making it for myself for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It really doesn’t matter what time of day it is – this kind of food is always good. You know, real but simple food which can be on the table in a matter of minutes – a slice of fresh sourdough, avocado smashed with some minced garlic, more often than not covered with a sprinkle of crumbled feta or a slice of cheese, a fried egg (which will melt yo ..read more

Jump to recipe Leave a comment Happy Easter, friends! I hope you all had an amazing long Easter weekend with your close ones. I have always thought that Easter time (at least here in Australia) is an interesting blend of summer and autumn. We had stunning sunny hot weather over the long Easter weekend and we spent hours outside enjoying it, pottering around our home garden, picking sweet strawberries, juicy little cherry tomatoes, as well as zucchini and pumpkins, trying to fly kites and swimming in the pool. But we can’t deny that the leaves on the trees are starting to turn, the temperatu ..read more

Healthier Swedish love yummies (Kärleksmums) [refined sugar and coffee free]

Jump to recipe Leave a comment What do you say this recipe is called – love yummies? Yep. Well, that’s one of the possible translations. Kärleksmums is one of Sweden’s most popular chocolate cakes – topped with chocolate and coffee icing and a sprinkling of dessicated coconut – but its Swedish name does not translate easily and so, in English, pieces of this cake are known by many different names including love yummies, love cakes, love mums, choco-coco squares, love yums and love treats. The recipe from Marisa Alvarsson I have adapted used the name love yummies and that’s what initially dr ..read more

Jump to recipe Leave a comment Cherry Banana Mango Happy autumn (if you are in the southern hemisphere as we are) or spring (if you are in the northern hemisphere)! Whatever the season, these easy and versatile mascarpone scrolls are sure to come in handy.

Jump to recipe Leave a comment We love Christmas in our family. I think it would be way easier to list what we DON’T love about Christmas. We love Christmas decorations, Christmas sweets, Christmas carols – which we often play and sing (very loudly and happily) completely out of season – and we love thinking about what Santa will bring us next Christmas. This year the kids are (already!) particularly excited because someone promised them puppies for Christmas (oh wait, it was me, gasp!). But before you start with “What were you thinking?!”, hear me out – I struck a deal. No toys for whole 1 ..read more

Jump to recipe Leave a comment Happy New Year all! After a lovely nearly month-long break I am back with another recipe – and, let me tell you, if these chocolate brownie pancakes don’t make your 2021 breakfasts something to look forward to, then I don’t know what will. Perfectly crispy edges, dense but light chocolatey texture inside and if you drizzle (or drench, like my kids) them in maple syrup and serve with some berries (we used our homegrown loganberries), I can guarantee this will be your New Year weekend breakfast perfection. But aren’t brownie pancakes bad for you? Well, to put it ..read more
