Pumpkin tapioca oats

Pumpkin tapioca oats is simply autumn in a bowl. This delish way to dish up the old fave but a goodie is becoming a favorite of mine, especially since I get to start the day with one of my favorite produce of the season, pumpkin. Oh yes and best of all this creamy tapioca oats get served with maple candied pecans, no bad mornings I tell you!

Gingerbread spiced french toast

Gingerbread spiced french toast is my absolute favorite way of eating bread these days. I have to confess, looking at my website recipes, I know now that I am for sure a sweet tooth and I am not ashamed to say it. All within boundaries, of course, I like to start my day the right way, the sweet way that is and this french toast is just the way to go!

Rye raisin cinnamon loaf is an amazing way to start the morning! Who doesn't love a fresh slice of bread infused with cinnamon and with the sweet tang of raisins. Even more, this bread is filled with nutritious rye flour that is sure to keep you full all morning long. I dont know about you, but I need a quick bread in my life, I tell you!

Apple Butterscotch Malva pudding

Apple butterscotch Malva pudding is the perfect way to celebrate heritage day and autumn all at once. Since summer is starting in SA and winter is around the corner, I thought to combine my season and one of my utmost favorite desserts from SA. I had to add spin and the butterscotch sauce with this pudding just works wonders!

Mini mushroom bacon scroll bread

Mini mushroom scroll bread is somewhat of an epiphany whilst making mushroom bacon. I was in the mood for "pot brood" traditionally served with a braai/BBQ in South Africa. Now that heritage day is all about heritage and not that I need to have an excuse to make anything South African I was thinking of making something savory for a change.

Pumpkin cilantro falafel bowls

Pumpkin cilantro falafel bowls are my official first recipe for this season.  Autumn is just a couple days away, and that means that all things comforting, filled with layers and goodness is on its way. These falafels are just the perfect intro into one of my favorite times of the year. I love the change color of the leaves, the smell of spices and the slow mornings even more so than spring. The colors are just so inspiring and it just brings out the hues of my soul.

Coffee fig muffins

Coffee fig muffins are the perfect way to start these cozy mornings. They are somewhat between a healthy muffin and a scrumptious piece of cake. I love the crunch of the hazelnuts and the bits of dried figs in between every bite. With a steaming cup of JO, every morning will start off great!

Ratatouille tart

Ratatouille tart is the perfect ending to summer. The fresh tomatoes are in abundance right now and it's so hard to believe that summer is coming to an end. I totally love tomatoes and I have made a few versions of a tomato tart, but this version is very french inspired. Ratatouille is a typical french dish that is found as a side to various dishes.

Strawberry tahini caramel slices 

Strawberry tahini caramel slices is a dessert that I have been craving to make since summer has started. We left for SA right at the beginning of summer and now at the end I finaly get around to making these slices. Okey, so these dessert slices turned out better than I thought. My mother made a strawberry tart close to this one, and I hope I get to make the actual tart version too, but for now these jammy bars of goodness will have to do.

Apricot Crunchies (V)

Apricot crunchies are such an amazing recipe that reminds me so much of the original recipe. I used to love these oaty squares, hardly knowing how much butter and sugar were in them. So I wanted to make these since forever and I am so happy I did, these past weeks has been a teeny bit tough. These bars are lifesavers!
