You know those invaluable cookbooks that live on your bench and have been dog-eared dozens of times with food stains and marks found on almost every page? This new Homegrown Kitchen Cookbook by Nicola Galloway has already become that for me after only mere weeks of having it in my possession. The love and effort put into this book by Nicola is so obvious throughout and her passion for cooking good food is infectious. This […]
Have you tried making coconut yogurt but haven’t had much luck?

Not long after having Ira 6 months ago I was fortunate enough to be given a beautiful meal […]

The honey lemon curd cream is a bit like guilding the lily, but hey, I love a good bit […]
I wanted to share a recipe for some delicious biscuits my friend Greta brought around for me a few weeks ago. These cookies are not what you would expect! They taste and feel like a classic chocolate chip cookie but are made with unconventional ingredients. Perfectly chewy and a great option for people on a plant-based diet or those who want a gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and nut-free cookie.
