Recipe: Chewy Oat and Date Bars

I’m so excited about this recipe. I’ve been trying to make nutritious, no-added-sugar cereal bars for a good year or so, and I have FINALLY cracked it! The Roommate likes to take one to work as a snack and I like to have one for breakfast, but neither of us like coconut, peanut butter or […]

Recipe: Apple and Blackberry Crumble

One of the things I love about autumn is that it means autumn food. Homemade soups, pies and general rib-sticking goodness… Hoo yes, get in my face! A firm favourite round here is my apple crumble, which when served hot and with a scoop of really good vanilla ice cream is the cure for many, many […]

Recipe: Simple Healthy ‘Slaw

I was inspired to come up with this because I’m really rather partial to coleslaw, but the shop-bought kind is often packed with unhealthy mayonnaise, oil and cream, and I prefer to keep my vegetables on the healthier side. This recipe is pretty much fat-free, full of veg and really tasty without being gloppy and […]

Recipe: Orange Hot Chocolate

Recipe: Avocado and Beetroot Tartare

This recipe was inspired by a recent meal out – I had a similar dish as a starter and it was so simple and delicious I had to try it. The original dish used mosto cotto but balsamic glaze or even regular balsamic vinegar is fine too. Ingredients (per serving) 1/2 avocado, diced 1 cooked […]

Red Grape Margarita

Because why not? It’s been a hot day, and a frustrating day (Credit scoring, what the eff is that all about?!) Anyway, I make it Margarita O’Clock. Ice (of course) 2 tbsp Tequila 1 tbsp Triple Sec/Cointreau Juice of 1 lime Dash of red grape juice Ahhhhhh, lovely x

Week 11

I know I am being a MASSIVE FAIL of a blogger. I should be on week 32 of Project52. I’m being a massive fail in many ways at the moment. Finally, a finished project I FINALLY finished the baby blanket I started in APRIL. I didn’t get it finished before the recipient was born (I […]
