Lemon Cardamom Polenta Cakes

These are so much more than a muffin and they really do taste as good as they look. Very moist, and surprisingly delicate for a polenta cake. Not dense or heavy at all and much more simple to throw together than a standard polenta cake. The rose and cardamom is a classic pairing with lemon and is delicous. The honey lemon curd cream is a bit like guilding the lily, but hey, I love a good bit […]

This is my classic granola recipe, give or take a few ingredients depending on what I have on hand at the time.

The brown butter almonds along with the lemon zest and tang create the perfect balance of flavours and texture to this dish. Oh, and […]

But pregnancy nausea lasts a long fucking time and I am only just starting to feel moderately better. My family and I will be welcoming baby number three in mid-spring sometime and fingers crossed for a smooth rest of the pregnancy and a return of my healthy […]

There are many wonderful chocolate combinations out there. Hazelnut, sea salt, orange, chili, mint, coffee to name only a few. But I have to say that my favourite combination of all time (oh big call, but here it is), chocolate + LIME. Chocolate and lime is a match made in heaven for these here taste buds. It is a childhood favourite. So naturally I had to recreate it in this space. This recipe is a simple […]
