Vegan Gingerbread Tahini Cookies

I have been wanting to share this vegan gingerbread cookie recipe with you for the longest time, but I didn't have pictures! Ever since I shared this vegan tahini cookie recipe on the blog (which has quickly become my most viewed and most baked recipe on the blog!), I wanted to experiment with something similar for Christmas. This Vegan Gingerbread Tahini Cookie is pretty much based off the original cookie recipe with a touch of extra coco... Read More >>

Red, white and green with a bit of gold is an absolute representation of a truly festive thing.

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.

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!). The last time I shared some delicious wholesome dal recipes, I received so many messages asking for more. Who knew, cheap dal dinners was a regular old thing - and not just in my home! So today, I am sharing another of my this-is-the-dal-i-want-to-eat-everyday obsessions. A Rainbow Veggie Co... Read More >>

Grilled Cinnamon Pineapple

Last year for my birthday, we went to the snow at Thredbo. Ironically, my birthday dinner was at a Churrasco Brasserie. Me, the non meat-eater. The place looked fabulous. Smokey aromas wafted out every time the door opened and closed as we stood in the little village square debating where to eat while snow flurries settled on our eyelashes. It was enough to drive us in. I was very excited about all the grilled veggies and seafood that they br... 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 >>
