Happy Monday foodies! I hope that your weekend was excellent and that you are ready to jump into the new week. As crazy as it may sound I actually look forward to Mondays and the opportunity to start fresh and tackle my goals for the week… but not before a good breakfast, ha ha! And that’s where Nature’s Source comes in – they have a huge range of delicious granola products to choose from, and many ways to use them as I am about to show you.

Hot cross bun bliss balls

Date balls with dark chocolate

 

If the walls of boxes filled with marshmallow eggs and armies of foil wrapped Easter bunnies piled high in the shops weren’t enough of a reminder, Easter is just around the corner! Autumn is probably my favourite season of the year, and Easter is definitely a highlight. I love the weather, the autumn colours of the trees, the cooler evenings, and of course – the food!

Chocolate and walnut yule log

Yule log Christmas dessert

 

We are counting down the sleeps until Christmas Day and there’s just time for one more Christmas recipe and my last post for 2018! This festive showstopper looks beautiful on the table and makes a decadent and delicious dessert. What is it exactly? My version is essentially a chocolate swiss roll filled with a walnut and cream cheese filling, smothered in chocolate icing and topped with chocolate curls. And in the mandatory log format! (Apologies in advance to your dentists and personal trainers… #sorrynotsorry.)

Peanut butter and walnut fudge bites (GF, SF, DF)

Peanut butter and walnut fudge recipe.

 

We are doubling down on nutty goodness this week with a brand new recipe that I put together recently – peanut butter and walnut fudge bites, yum! This is the kind of quick and easy treat that I love snacking on in the afternoon when I need an energy boost and feel like a little something sweet but guilt-free. They are so good!

4 Ingredient homemade chocolate spread (refined sugar free)

Sugar free nutella recipe

 

I am so excited about today’s recipe, and if you are a chocoholic like me then I am sure you will be too! In our house we like to keep a jar of chocolate spread at the back of the pantry cupboard for those occasional Saturday mornings when we have pancakes for breakfast. While I feel it’s ok to enjoy chocolate spread as an occasional treat I like to start the day on a wholesome note and am conscious that said chocolate spread is not the healthiest thing for the family to be eating first thing in the morning! So when I discovered a healthier version that I could make easily at home I was over the moon.

Gluten free cheese croquettes

Cheese croquettes with sweet chilli sauce

 

Hi foodies and hello October! We have just returned from a week away in one of our favourite spots, beautiful Knysna. We spent the week in a cosy wood cabin overlooking the Knysna River Valley and it was just the break we needed. Plenty of time spent on our balcony listening to the birds, lots of fresh air, reading, beach time and nature walks – bliss!

Vegan chocolate caramel tart

Vegan chocolate and caramel dessert recipe

 

A few weeks ago I was challenged by Nicolas over at Blogtastic Food to create a fabulous vegan dessert as part of a blogger recipe collaboration. The idea was inspired by this recipe for vegan lemon meringue pie which Nicolas put together recently, and he had the idea to challenge other food bloggers to get creative (vegan style!) and do the same. And that is how this vegan chocolate caramel tart came about.
