Spiced Pumpkin, Fetta and Pearl Barley Salad

We’re currently in the transition between winter and spring. We’ve had some lovely warm, sunny days, which feel lush. But thanks to La Niña today is feeling like winter again. That being said, I’m getting a lot of inspiration seeing fall recipes posted by Northern Hemisphere friends on Instagram. It feels like a nice overlap with the seasons where we … Read More

Pulled Pork Loaded Sweet Potatoes

I’ve made pulled pork so many times that it has sort of become my signature dish. My friends and family love it and I get requests to make it for picnics and parties. When cooking for a crowd of people, y’all know I love my slow cooker. I wrote a whole blog post about all the many reasons why over … Read More

Beetroot Hummus with Homemade Seeded Crackers

If there’s two things I know I will always have the ingredients on hand to make, it’s spaghetti cacio e pepe, which is my #1 comfort food dish… and hummus. It’s incredible to me the way that a handful of basic ingredients can come together to create magic – butter, sugar, eggs and flour and hey, you have cake. Or … Read More

Sticky Date Smoothie Bowl

One of the weirder pieces of health advice I’ve ever been given is Chew your smoothies. At first I was like “Huh? Smoothies are for sipping!” but when I read up on the reason why, it started to make sense. A smoothie is like a nutrient rich meal with carbs, protein and fat. Because they are blended into a liquid, … Read More

Coconut Panna Cotta (Dairy Free)

How do we all feel about dessert for breakfast? I think you can tell that I’m kind of a fan. I just posted my new favourite breakfast – Baked French Toast. It is kind of on the decadent side and perfect for special occasion brunches. Most days I am having a smoothie (or a smoothie bowl when I feel fancy), … Read More

Blueberry Acai Smoothie & Chia Parfait

Happy Tuesday! Today I am bringing you a nice simple recipe for a healthy breakfast that I have been absolutely loving lately. Why choose between Chia Pudding and an Acai Bowl when you can combine them together! And so the Blueberry Acai Chia Smoothie Parfait was born. The name is a bit of a mouthful – or should I say … Read More

Simple Dinners 21 / Cauliflower Pizza with Roasted Pumpkin and Prosciutto

There must be millions of recipes for quick and easy meals online and in the dozens of cookbooks and food magazines, but the midweek dinner is still a massive pain point for most people. Even those of us who love to cook often struggle with organising meal prep or grocery shopping in advance – this requires a level of logistical … Read More

Papaya Fruit Boats with Grain Free Granola

Once upon a time, I used to make granola every week or two for a quick and convenient homemade breakfast… but it’s been quite a long while since my last batch. Today I’ve made a low carb, gluten-free, grain-free and vegan version of my favourite granola, filled with lots of delicious and healthy nuts, seeds, and coconut flakes that will start … Read More

Matcha Coconut Bounty Bites

I’ve always loved creating twists on childhood treats. It’s a fantastic way to use my creativity to put my own spin on a classic recipe and give a nostalgic favourite a new lease on life. Often in the past that has meant adding some booze or going way over the top (hello Fairy Bread Cake, I still love you). But … Read More

Warm Chocolate Chia Porridge Two Ways

Here in the southern hemisphere, we are deep into winter weather now. One thing I do love about winter in Sydney is that we still get beautiful sunny days and I love spending the morning in the garden. It’s fantastic to get some much needed Vitamin D and catch up on my emails, but the early mornings and evenings are … Read More
