Pistachio + Rose Rocky Road

In the past, optimism was a characteristic that seemed to elude me. I could have safely been labelled the ‘glass half empty’ kind. The good news is however, due to the cleverness of the human brain, a hopeful, optimistic attitude is something you can actually acquire. If optimism is a gene that you inherit, I […]


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.

Lemon + Raspberry RAW Cheesecake

Yes, I know. Another raw recipe. Every second dessert I’m making at the moment is raw. I assure you I’m not caught up in some kind of craze , but the appeal of eating something delicious which is also so very good for you is too much for me to resist!   This is all relatively […]
