Harvest breakfast tarts are a super easy breakfast alternative when you're just not feeling like oats. It takes ten minutes to prepare and is super delish and very healthy too. You can even use these tarts as a healthy dessert too, so it's def a win in my book!

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.

Mocha Lamingtons

Mocha Lamingtons are just unforgettably perfect for tea time, after dinner sweet spot or late munchie hour goodness. I absolutely love lamingtons, because like so many small bite size dessert it makes me think of my childhood days. These beauties were devoured after church alongside koeksisters, caramel tarts and milk tart. So many South African goodies that are in fact unforgettable and attached to my childhood memories.

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.

Prickly pear tapioca pudding

Prickly pear tapioca pudding is utterly amazing whether you decide to have it for breakfast or dessert. I actually ate this bowl of tapioca pudding with my son for breakfast and there was no complaining. It is light and subtly sweetened with juicy hints of prickly pear. I remember we ate these things so much as kids, all sliced up and cold from the fridge. My mother always said we shouldn't eat too much, but they were just too delish. Now I love to use these beauties in savory and sweet dishes.

Sweet potato waffles

Sweet potato waffles have never come at a better time. This weekend, I am home alone once again and the only thing that can feul me with the toddler filled days are of course waffles. Not any old waffle will do. Only sweet potato waffles can do the trick. I went to the farmers' market this morning and I had to time it pretty nicely because sprinting through has to come with a game plan. Snacks, water and a list of to buy's. All the necessities led to a pretty smooth morning and a much-needed nap time afterwards (for the both of us btw).

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...
