Maple Roly Poly

Maple Roly Poly also is known as Rolpoeding in Afrikaans is one of my absolute favorite desserts since I was a little girl. Wheater this recipe is truly South African, it is one of the essential desserts from my South African core. Sunday afternoons post lunch we will have generous scoops of this delicious dessert with warm custard or cold cream.

Caramelized Butternut Shallot lasagne

Caramelized Butternut Shallot lasagne is perfect for a Sunday lunch or dinner options. It stores pretty well too for a leftover alternative and fills all the holes and gaps for comfort food goodness that the winter creates. Not only is it so easy to prepare, but also a budget saver. This lasagne can go pretty far with a whole roasted butternut, couple slices of whole wheat pasta sheets and creamy bearnaise sauce.

Semolina Hotcakes roasted honey balsamic strawberries

Semolina Hotcakes roasted honey balsamic strawberries is certainly a twist on the old faithful pancake stack for Sundays. I spotted some strawberries at the farmers market and I can't say no to fresh produce, my fridge and husband can vouch for that. I made two recipes this past week, strawberry match slices and these unforgettable semolina hotcakes with honey balsamic roasted strawberries.

Turmeric chickpea curry

Turmeric chickpea curry and spelt naan is a perfect, quick and easy comforting meal for these colder evenings. In fact, it feels as though summer is still here with us, but it's quite obvious that winter is on the horizon. When the sun starts setting more earlier each day, I want curry. Not that I don't want to eat it always anyway. a True curry lover loves curry whether it's hot or not- in terms of the wheater that is. I like my curry pretty mild thank you very much and this curry ticks all the boxes for me.

Fig rye banana bread

Fig rye banana bread is a banana bread lover's dream come true. This bread is dense yet light, moist and so delish with the dried figs hidden in there. I absolutely love this bread and will def make it again, again and again. The spelt and rye flours complement the luscious figs so well. I am still dreaming about this loaf.

Walnut oatmeal Pizookie

Walnut oatmeal Pizookie can lift anyone's mood. It's a giant cookie slash pizza for breakfast. Crispy baked and topped off with maple syrup and generously served with tonga bean coconut yogurt. I added some fall fruit and they tasted delish, but you can add whatever fruit you like. Even some chocolate will be advised...

Visiting Magical Brugge

Visiting magical Brugge was certainly a beautiful traveling destination. This enchanting little town brings all the warming things into one. Good food, coffee, chocolates and an awing view to boot. November was a great time to visit since it was not that cold or too busy just yet. Traveling with a baby certainly made things more challenging, but so worth it still. All things considered, it was very, Lekker indeed!

Hazelnut jam buttercream cake

HAZELnut jam buttercream cake is quite a mouthful to say and to enjoy because there is no taking small bites of this delicious cake. I made this beauty for a baby shower that was supposed to take place but instead the little princess made a surprise entry right on the day of the baby shower. Hazelnut cake was quite fitting for the lady in pink because she was given the pretty name Hazel. What are the chances right? But the perfect way to celebrate was with cake indeed!

Autumn Beef lentil stew

Cozy beef lentil stew is one of my latest favorite recipes. The weather has been pretty indecisive just as Autumn aught to be I guess. I have switched my cupboards layered with winter goodies, but the sunshine has been pretty sweet lately. What makes this stew so perfect is the fact that its low carb, healthy and packet with winter veggies that will keep you fuller for longer when the winter chills do decide to come along!
