Have you tried making coconut yogurt but haven’t had much luck? I get questions from a large number of people about the secrets to making a consistently good coconut yogurt that is tangy and thick and that doesn’t separate. My method is EASY and I get a perfect batch every time. You don’t need any fancy equipment and you don’t even need to have probiotic capsules on hand. This method uses leftover coconut yogurt which you […]

When a friend has had a baby I like to make these bars as a little treat. They are allergy-friendly for most people and a bit more nutritious than a standard slice or biscuit. They also don’t require exact ingredients so you can often make them with what you have lurking in the pantry. I buy a big 1kg tub of tahini from Pak N Save for about $13, which is more cost effective than the smaller […]

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.

This is my take on a traditional Mexican cake made from chick peas. I love baking with basic pantry items as I often have them on hand and they are usually inexpensive. This cake uses only 5 ingredients and is very quick to put together. It is delicious served warm, but will develop a lovely dense texture if left to cool completely. This recipe uses a food processor, but a stick blender will also work. […]

  Oh hello! Sorry for the long silence on here. It has been a manic start to the new year (which was a few months ago now, I know). 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 […]
