Roasted Carrot butternut soup

Roasted carrot butternut soup is one of my favorite soups ever. I know I've said it before because everything that I make is my favorite...So I am a bit misleading. I love butternut soup and have made a few kids in the past, curry butternut soup, butternut chickpea soup and butternut chili soup. I have to say that the combo of carrot and butternut absolutely taste amazing. The carrot adds that tinge of sweetness that is so unexpected. I promise you, this is so easy and tasty you'll want to make it over and over again!

Pumpkin red onion quiche

Pumpkin red onion quiche is the savory treat that I am craving the most these days. I'm kind of over stews and heavily cooked comforting meals, therefore quiche is just the thing. It's light, filling and comforting at the same time. With summer, hopefully' around the corner. These quiches that are healthier than the regular quiches, so they will not deviate you to get summer body ready.

Healthy Milktart crepes

Milktart Crepes have become my ultimate favorite way to eat crepes. Even though Nutella coconut filled crepes right next to the Ifle tower is hard to beat. Crepes with a view can be anyone's favorite am I right? No matter what they taste like. Now you don"t have to go all the way to France to experience good enough crepes. I combined the much loved French dessert with a well-known favorite in South African. One thing that we have in common is that we love crepes too. I guess that I am finding more and more similarities to cure the "missing home" blues.

OH SO SWEET Vegan meringues

OH SO SWEET Vegan meringues have seriously surprised me. What do these vegan (dairy & Animal free) meringues entail- chickpea brine? First of all, I thought these would taste pretty weird because of the whole using chickpea brine and all, but I have to say they taste pretty good. Almost like regular meringues to be honest and the bonus adding of rose water extract just added that extra bit of flair that every meringue needs.

Winter warming soups

Winter warming soups are soothers for my soul, especially since this winter has been so long. It seems as though it is getting better by the day and the spring blossoms have made their arrival. It is crazy to think that one year ago I had a newborn baby and absolutely no time to cook. I wish I tried more soup recipes, but in that "new" state of life, you kind of forget all and you're submerged into mothering mode. These soups have been so easy to make and I have made them numerous times. They are filling and so nutritious for any winter lunch or dinner...

Almond butter popcorn cups

Almond butter popcorn cups are just heavenly. Things get super serious when chocolate and popcorn is involved...Oh and almond butter. All three of these are my favorite and I just simply can't resist. I used to munch buckets of popcorn during pregnancy and after because I was just so hungry. The munchies are so tough when your preggo or breastfeeding.

Easy sourdough bread

Easy sourdough bread has got me baking bread like there is no tomorrow. I've stocked up on these baked goodies and there are more than a few slices frozen for those much-needed carb days. Since I have been living in France and surrounded by Boulangeries, I was sure to be bitten by the bread baking bug. Now there are a few others that are high on my list. You'll just have to wait and see...
