Iced Spice Coconut Latte

A good iced coffee can be a revelation.  There are so many elements fighting for attention in an iced coffee glass. The coffee, the sweetness, the milk, the flavouring. If one is more overpowering than the others, the balance is thrown off. After experimenting for weeks, I finally created the perfect iced coffee. A vegan beverage, as rich as a decadent dessert but as light as water, as warming as the sunshine streaming through the clouds w... Read More >>
Gluten Free Lemon And Coconut Cake - Cook Republic

Gluten Free Almond Coconut Cake

A few years ago when I was doing food photography and styling workshops, a gluten free cake I adapted from Belinda Jeffery's Mix & Bake cookbook (one of my favourite baking cookbooks) was a staple at morning tea. A simple almond and coconut cake that I tweaked to be just sweet enough with a generous lashing of lemon. It was so wildly popular at all my workshops that I would get emails requesting the recipe. I always sent everyone a pho... Read More >>

Rainbow Veggie Coconut Dal

It is a bloody miracle that I haven't shared a dal recipe on the blog for a while now, considering I am cooking dals every week (much to my boys annoyance!).

Instant Vegan Mango Ice Cream

Do you often wonder why when you make mango ice cream or smoothies at home, do they taste like bland sweetness whereas that mango ice cream from that gelato place tastes like sheer pleasure in a cone? There are two main reasons. The first being the type of mango. The key to a good mango ice cream is the variety of the mango used. I do not trust recipes that call for any mango to make an ice cream. Because all mangoes were not created equal! A... Read More >>

Homemade Coffee Chocolate Face Polish And Coffee Coconut Body Scrub

One of my lifelong evolving passion has been to make small positive changes every day in order to lead a simpler and more fulfilled life. These small changes are driven by the need to connect with the physicality of my surroundings – the earth, the air, the water, the trees, the birds and the bees. It is a work in progress in a bid to waste less, reuse and recycle more and finding purpose in spent things in order to stretch the boundaries of ... Read More >>
