Sparkling Iced Lemon Tea
Sparkling Iced Lemon Tea

Who doesn’t love a good iced lemon tea? It is cold, sweet, tart and tangy with a good jolt of caffeine from the black tea. A thoroughly refreshing drink to sip on while you read a good book on a warm day or a great lemon hit to ward off the winter blues! I still...

Sparkling Chia Refresher
Sparkling Chia Refresher

  A Sparkling Chia Refresher is a great way to get your daily dose of chia seeds if you have had enough of chia puddings and smoothies. It is definitely lighter, cleaner and more refined on the palate. In fact, this sparkling chia drink is an excellent palette...

Costa Rica Tiramisu Martini
Costa Rica Tiramisu Martini

It was probably the most perfect evening in Italy, it’s stucco walls bathed in a golden glow; when Tiramisu was invented. The greatest gift to the world of dessert. An ode to coffee and everything sweet. My love for Tiramisu knows no bounds. I have dabbled in...

Mango Mojito
Mango Mojito

My childhood was spent amongst mango trees, eating them straight off the branches, golden juice trickling down my arms. As an adult, I love mangoes even more because I get to experiment with them in creative new recipes in my kitchen. Needless to say, every year at...

Festive Gin Smash
Festive Gin Smash

Red, white and green with a bit of gold is an absolute representation of a truly festive thing. And so, my glorious Christmas cocktail which has fresh fruit layers of white lychees, red strawberries and green mint is aptly called – Festive Gin Smash! The perfect...

Strawberry Gin Fizz
Strawberry Gin Fizz

This strawberry gin cocktail recipe couldn't be simpler if it tried. It is essentially a gin and tonic without the tonic of course but with added fresh fruitiness of strawberry and lime. Gin is my favourite liqueur for mixing cocktails followed by rum and maybe...

Iced Spice Coconut Latte
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...

Date Cashew Milk
Date Cashew Milk

If you would like to reduce or eliminate dairy from your diet and aren't sure about nut milks, cashew milk is the best place to start. It has a rich creaminess and a natural sweetness which is usually missing in other nut milks. I love adding some dates and a touch of...

Noodle Free Pad Thai
Noodle Free Pad Thai

A traditional pad thai is one of my favourite things to eat. But it does take a bit of work. And needs to be enjoyed straight away as it has a tendency to get gluggy and sticky because of the rice noodles. Now imagine if there was a pad thai recipe that had all those...

Market Veggie Broth
Market Veggie Broth

Every Thursday when I walk into my home with my baskets and jute bags full of fresh market produce, I make this broth. Like clockwork. I set my bags down, grab the Kilner jam pan (who knew it would be just perfect for big batches of stock and sauces) and fill it with...

Kiwifruit Mint And Cardamom Lassi
Kiwifruit Mint And Cardamom Lassi

Lately, after discovering the immense health benefits of kiwi fruit, I have been trying to incorporate it more in my recipes. I am not a big fruit lover. Especially ones that need a bit of a peel or prep. I hate cutting and prepping fruit. I probably can assign that...

7 Ingredient Detox Smoothie
7 Ingredient Detox Smoothie

For the better part of the week, I eat and drink sensibly. And in a timely manner. But then the weekend arrives and all my routines go out of the window. Sometimes, we are out at the crack of dawn for soccer and end up having two breakfasts and no lunch. And dinner...
