Golden Cauliflower + Turmeric Soup

Hello strangers!!! Well, at long last here I am with a new recipe! Things have been hectic with book stuff, and well, all the side projects that come with it. I’ll expand this story (in the not too distant future!) and post links to all the new recipes I have developed for other awesome companies. […]

Mini Strawberry Galettes

With the lead up to the release of my book, I’m preparing my brain for a world that is a bit of stranger to me – the media. Amongst the anxiety of it all, I found myself having to answer interview questions for an upcoming magazine article (cute!). True to my nature I put a […]

Raw Salted Caramel Fudge

Sometimes I feel I am a walking contradiction. A cacophony of opposing traits. A tiny ball of chaos that is obsessed with systems and order. Overflowing with love. Cries way too much. A pillar of strength, with the potential to crumble any second. Overly proud. Overly vulnerable. Filled with terror, yet as brave as can be. It’s very confusing.Tomorrow […]

Spinach, Feta + Pine Nut Gozleme

It seemed to come out of nowhere, but I feel the period of transition has come to an end. The last tears have finally been shed. However, they certainly went out with a bang. I subjected my friends, and my ego, to a couple of public weeping sessions. Not the tears rolling down the cheek, feeling overwhelmed type of […]

Red Lentil Dhal

I live by the sea, and the cold wind blows strong. In summer it is a real asset. It smells of salt and coconut. There are children with spades digging channels and teenagers jumping off the pier. And we all spend hours in the crashing waves. For me however, its true beauty is revealed when […]

Pistachio + Rose Rocky Road

Cashew Maple Muesli Bars

Do you have certain songs that transport you to a particular time in your life? I do. I can listen to a song and instantly be hauled back to the past. But not just by way of memories, it’s much deeper than that. It’s as if the song pokes me hard in the heart with its index finger. And suddenly […]

Omelettes, Asian Style

Dear fellow humans, I have advice for you. Which indeed I need to heed myself. If ever you find yourself going through tough times, it is important to surround yourself with the people who love you, and who make you feel safe. Although often, when you’re down, the last thing you may want to do is […]

Apricot Coconut Bliss Balls

Well, here we are, the start of the new school year. I have mixed emotions about this, yet again. Although it is just a day, and my son is only one measly day older than yesterday, the start of a new grade signifies that my little baby is much further away from being a baby. […]

Fruit and Nut Tabouli

My life, over the last six months, has been tipped upside down and thrown on it’s head. Hence my lack of commitment to Eat This My Friend. Without delving too deeply into my personal life, I discovered that in times of total stress I completely lose my appetite. I have not been in the mood to […]
