Banana, date and oat breakfast loaf

I keep seeing banana bread everywhere; what is it about this weather and the urge to have a slice of warm and gooey banana loaf? I usually use a banana bread recipe that contains yoghurt, but yesterday I didn’t have any, but I did have a bunch of ripe bananas that were screaming out to…

Vegan Avocado Key Lime Pie

My very vegan, avocado key lime pie. I made this for my husband’s birthday this week. I think everyone was a bit like, “where’s the cake love”, but seriously, I loved this. So light and creamy. Probably should’ve left it for a non-birthday occasion, but it was delicious nonetheless. Perfect if you are looking for a…

Gluten free Lemon Polenta Cake

So we celebrated a birthday this week (balloon a big giveaway, eh?!) and we didn’t go for the usual character clad, Pinterest themed, en-route-to-a-medical-condition kinda cake. Instead we all had a slice of gluten free at its yummiest – fresh and zingy Lemon Polenta cake. It was delicious so I thought I’d share the recipe…

Gluten Free Calamari

Put your hand up if you love calamari! We love the stuff, and here’s my gluten free version; quick, simple and easy to rustle up straight after school… Which usually results in a very quiet dinner time in our house because everyone’s busy munching and making sure they don’t snooze (to lose!) Give it a go…

Dairy Free Sheer Khorma

So it turns out, dairy free sheer qorma (khurma, if you’re hyderabadi and always change Q to a Kh, or “seviyan” if you’re the rest of the subcontinent) tastes equally good, if not better!!! Yay to my little girl for making me experiment with every wheat, dairy, sugar alternative under the sun. If like us you’re…

Chocolate Energy Balls

Anyone who knows me will vouch for one thing – I cannot and will not give up chocolate. So naturally, I’m always trying to find a healthy alternative to satisfy the urge to pick up a Kit Kat (I know, cringe, right?) I’ve been seeing these around the Internet for ages and also seeing overpriced…

Sticky Toffee Pudding

I really fancied a sticky toffee pudding this evening but the thought of that much golden syrup in one pud was making me feel guilty before I’d even begun to bake, so I decided to make my own variation on this ultimate classic comfort pudding – Moist date and sticky toffee cake drizzled in warm…
