Chocolate Truffles with a Swedish twist

Share

Can you believe it? Just a couple of weeks left of 2016, and Christmas just around the corner…! The common phrase of “Where does time go?” is the thing on my mind.  Maybe my dad has a point when he says that time moves faster the older we get. Stands to reason if we see time as a thing …

Tahini-Orange filled Raw Chocolate

Can you have sweet treats that are actually beneficial to your health and body? I, for one, would like to think so.

It can be so confusing knowing what to eat these days… However if you stick to the “wholefood principle” you can’t go too far wrong. The overall message coming through from research done in the field of nutrition …

Homemade Cashew-Walnut Nutbutter

Things have been a little quite here, I must admit. AND I’ve been feeling guilty about it too. A whole month and nothing written or posted. My aim is to keep it to at least one post every second week, but it just didn’t work out over these past few weeks. Looking back I think it’s been a mix of …

Better-For-You Peanut Butter Chocolate Bites

Are you on the “Quitting Sugar Train”? There’s so much hype and information around about the dangers of  sugar these days. It feels a little overwhelming at times. Not to mention confusing! The science of nutrition seems to be forever evolving and changing. Eat this. Don’t eat that. Sometimes (even as a trained professional!) I feel confused and overwhelmed about …

Raw Lemon Cheese Cake

Raw Lemon “Cheese” Cake – with Summer Berries

 

This raw cake is surprisingly easy to make, tastes amazing and is naturally gluten, dairy  and refined sugar free. I kind of wish I could take credit for the recipe, but at least the pictures are all mine. Which of course means I had the pleasure of both cooking and eating it! Lucky me.

A while back I was …

Banana Pancakes

Banana Pancakes – for Pancake Tuesday

It’s Pancake Tuesday! Finally. What more do I have to say. Pancakes are really good any time of year, especially on a lazy Sunday morning. For the past few years I’ve had friends over to my house for Pancake Tuesday. It’s great to cook and share a meal with your best friends.

The Irish tradition is to serve them with …

Buckwheat Crêpes

I was really planning on posting a more “dinner” type of recipe this time, but with food blogging things sometimes just don’t work out as you intend. I try to eat what I cook and photograph. So anything I post may depend on what happens to be in the fridge. This time of the year it is also harder to …

Fruit & Nut Truffle Cake

Just incase one Christmas treat recipe wasn’t enough, here is a second one. I’m still making a few give-away treats, so just so glad I got all my presents bought early. Apart from making the last few presents I am all set for the holidays now. Just have to pack my suitcase and then I am ready to return to …
