  Things may seem rather quiet around here, but I can promise you that the quietness on my blog is a reflection of the busyness in my life and the chaos in my head. I have found the jump from two kids to three mind boggling. It is exhausting, relentless, and tedious at times. Conversely it is also wonderful and fun and hilarious. But if I am to be honest, more often than not, I am overwhelmed. Postnatal […]

  This bread recipe is the version I make using instant yeast instead of sourdough starter. For any of you who don’t have a sourdough starter, or if you forgot to feed the starter before bread-making day, this recipe doesn’t require any preparation and still produces a beautiful bread with a great flavour and minimal effort.

Topped with Thai mint and basil and mung bean sprouts, this dish is a feast for the senses and also incredibly nourishing. If beef bone broth is normally too full-on for you, this is a great version to try, as the spices really alter the flavour and smell for the better! If you are […]

If there is one food I would recommend getting into your body on a regular basis it would have to be raw fermented sauerkraut (naturally fermented cabbage). This stuff is loaded with probiotics to help line the gut (digestive tract) with beneficial bacteria while also providing important vitamins, minerals and enzymes to help with digestion and gut health. Sauerkraut also helps to get rid of toxins in our body as well as reducing and eliminating fungal and yeast […]

Bread-making used to be an intimidating idea for me. But over the years I have learned that it is fun and very rewarding. I have made many terrible and inedible loaves of bread in process, but each time learning something new. Sourdough bread-making may seem like an ambitious place to start, but it is actually very simple and more forgiving than yeasted bread-making. The rise times are much slower, the temperature doesn’t matter as much, and […]
