Blackberry Overnight Oats

Every summer our blackberry vine creeps a bit further and grows more tendrils that become robust branches heaving with juicy black fruit at the peak of the season. It is amazing how many berries you can stuff in your mouth when you are picking them off the vines. As a...

5 Minute Blueberry Chia Lassi
5 Minute Blueberry Chia Lassi

In the cooler months, I forgo my usual morning smoothie for a hot breakfast. On most days a big bowl of steaming porridge does wonders for my soul. Some other days I'll fry an egg with some sautéed mushrooms and greens and eat it with a sprinkling of dukkah. On days...

Avocado Smoothie With Watercress And Lime
Avocado Smoothie With Watercress And Lime

I usually buy a big punnet of watercress from the veggie stall at the markets on Thursday, especially when I have a big weekend of entertaining planned. It is a great salad filler. But if it doesn't get tossed through a salad, it will sit on my fridge shelf...

Beetroot And Cacao Nib Smoothie And The Weekend In Pictures

  How was your weekend? I spent an afternoon with the boys at the park, sitting under a tree thinking and watching them play. We had just come back from the vintage book fair with nearly 50 books and I read one sitting on that park bench for nearly an hour. It...

Green Tea And Oat Smoothie

  For the past few days I have been having this beautiful green tea and oat smoothie for breakfast. I have a Vitamix blender visiting me for a couple of weeks and I have been enjoying his (yes, all my kitchen helpers are big strapping males. I don't have a fetish...

Cashew Nut Smoothie With Blueberries And Mango
Cashew Nut Smoothie With Blueberries And Mango

Sometimes mangoes go the way bananas do, in profoundly ripe land. Although there is no tradition of mango bread (something that needs to be addressed!), there are ways to salvage an over ripe mango besides feeding it to your chickens (which drives them a little...
