Cherry plum galettes

Think-Cherry plum galettes! This heat has been unbearable these last couple days. I've always loved summer over winter, but lately, I am overthinking things. What do you eat when it's 35 degrees Celsius outside? and what to do with a 17month old in this heat!? That indeed is the question.

Gluten-free cornbread is the perfect salad side dish around. We are such corn lovers in our household and would eat a couple of corn on the cobs per week.

You can sub the gluten-free flour for normal whole wheat or white pastry flour for a more light effect.

But who am I kidding, life has changed quite a bit since I have become a mother. I'd rather be having a good time with my family, than worrying getting into my bikini. My priorities have slightly changed since I have become a mother (especially since eating is one thing my son and I love to do together- the sacrifices of parenting, lol).

Cinnamon dumplings

Cinnamon dumplings aka souskluitjies are the ultimate South African comfort food. Lazy days, rainy days or just flat out days. This recipe is a fixer-upper. It's my pint of ice cream (if I was a Gilmore girl). It's doughy, soft like a cloud and drenched in a sweet cinnamon syrup, that makes you want to lick the bowl after...
