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!

Sugar free chocolate coconut squares

 

Time for something that’s a little bit naughty but nice… the result of an afternoon spent experimenting in my kitchen. I was originally going for a double layered treat, but then I thought why stop at two? And that’s how these triple decker squares of chocolatey coconut yumminess (that also happen to be gluten and refined sugar free) came into existence. Now these no bake chocolate coconut squares are one of my new favourite things!

Mushrooms on griddled polenta with pecorino

Grilled polenta squares with mushrooms and pecorino.

 

So here’s the story, and I wonder how many of you can relate?  I love breakfast, and I always make sure the cupboard is stocked with one of my favourite healthy home made granolas (like this chocolate granola) so I never have think about what I am going to eat. Easy. Dinner is also not too much of a bother as I have a bunch of great recipes that I make regularly and I tend to have all of the ingredients on hand. But then there’s lunch… this is where my inspiration (and motivation) seems to wane and I never quite know what I feel like making. So I am always excited when I come across new and interesting ideas, like today’s recipe for mushrooms on griddled polenta with pecorino cheese.
