Easy risotto chez Comme a la maison

Comme a la Maison gave me the nostalgic taste of home. Chef Damien's fresh menu is made out of local bio products that give the traditional french way of cooking a run for its money. Come and watch the video and learn how to prepare your very own Chorizo risotto, fresh vegetables, and butternut chutney!

Sommerskos op die tafel met Marita van der Vyver

Om die tafel met Marita van der Vyver, is 'n droom onderhoud wat 'n werklikheid geword het vir my. Nie net is sy 'n ikoniese skrywer nie, maar sommer 'n bobaas kook ook. Somerkos in Provence is sowaar net 'n voorsmakie van die "creme de la creme" lewe van Marita van der Vyver in Frankryk. Ek het behoorlik gesmul toe ek deur haar Somerkos in Provence kosboek blaai en ek kon nie wag om elke resep te probeer nie.

Peanut Butter Date Coconut smoothie

Peanut butter date coconut smoothie is a lifesaver to all the mommas ou there who don't have the time to have a proper sit-down brekkie...I do love peanut butter... it's super addictive and it's a close favorite to my all time almond butter obsession! I know there are copious amounts of variations on how to make a good peanut butter smoothie, but this combo is certainly a go to when I need to stop the peanut butter cravings that are creeping up on me, especially since I am breastfeeding our hungry little bear. It's easy to make in a flash since there is less time to prepare my beloved breakfasts.

Une journée d'amour

Une journée d'amour is just another way of celebrating love...It may be man-made-up day and you might not believe in it, but it does remind us to appreciate the ones that we love. Everyone can have a reminder of that, I would say! This is also actually my due date...So fingers crossed that the gift of love will be showered upon us today, either way you've gotta feel the love!
Ricotta Peanut Butter Banana bread

Ricotta Peanut Butter Banana bread

Ricotta Peanut butter banana bread has been a lifesaver this past week. I absolutely love banana bread warm out of the oven with a hot cup of tea as an added bonus. This version of banana bread is a mixture of a healthier alternative for you to try out at home. The ricotta adds to the mushy, moist texture whilst served with a generous scoop of almond butter- you'll be so grateful for every slice!
