Serves: 2Preparation time: 15 minutesCooking time: 20 minutes Ingredients 1 tsp oil1 leek, sliced350g potatoes, roughly chopped400ml tin coconut milk100ml... Continue Reading →

Fruit and nut bars

I have lots of dried fruit in the cupboard, and I'm trying to eat them in a different way each time I have some. The chocolate and raisin rock buns only used raisins, but I've used a variety of dried fruit in these bars. These little bars come packed with flavour and energy. Makes: 8Preparation...

Beetroot and sweet potato bowl

Beetroot and chocolate cake

After looking at things that pair nicely with beetroot to have something different, to my surprise, supposedly chocolate does. I saw a few chocolate and beetroot cakes and thought that I had to try this. I was expecting the chocolate to overpower any beetroot taste, but it does have a subtle flavour in there, which...

Garlic and mushroom pastry swirls

Oops, I lied! There's another pastry dish lined up. I actually made this one before the others, but I must have gotten far too excited about all the other pastry meals that I was making that I forgot about this one.

Oreo mug cake

I saw a YouTube video where someone made a cake using just Oreos. An Oreo flavoured cake? I was sold at that. But, it's a double win that you only need 3 ingredients to make it. The YouTuber baked the cake on the stove, which looked like I could mess that up too easily, so... Continue Reading →

Raspberry, kiwi and cream tarts

Ok, this is the last pastry dish lined up for now, and we're ending it with something sweet! I decided on two different fruits for these tarts as I'm taking a long time to get through some frozen raspberries and I had some kiwis that were probably too soft to just eat, so it was...
