Blackberry rosewater panna cotta

Blackberry rosewater panna cotta's are simply perfect for a Sunday afternoon sweet treat. Since winter is around the corner, these are the perfect summer's end dessert to celebrate. They are light and perfectly flavored with the tang of the blackberries and the sweetness of the rose water. The nutty base that crumbles with every bite, is simply perfect.

Rooibos rosewater donuts

Rooibos rosewater donuts are the donut recipe you have been looking for. It hits the sweet spot and it's pretty healthy to boot. The two flavors together are amazing and make these donuts perfect for a brunch alternative too. I made a rooibos syrup a couple weeks ago, thanks to a friend of mine. I added this to the donuts and it just worked so well.

Pecan crumb muffins

Pecan crumb muffins are a combination of summer, autumn and winter all rolled into one. The different textures and tastes are somewhat comforting, yet light and crunchy at the same time. You'd want to eat more than one that's for sure. By the sight of my living room floor, my son purely enjoyed the muffins too. After I gave one to my 18-month-old, I too was eating more than one, because eating muffins beat's cleaning floor's. Crumblike anythings to a toddler is life, not so much for me when all the cleaning is involved.

No knead Zucchini bread

No knead Zucchini bread is such an amazing bread recipe to try when you are pressed for time or when you just want to make some freshly baked bread in a jiffy. I made this for us one evening when we were planning to have a BBQ. It took me around a half an hour to prepare everything and by the time the BBQ was ready, the bread was ready to be eaten.

Summer socca

Summer socca is the epiphany to easy lunch that can look like a fancy lunch. It can be your secret when you need to make something quick, healthy and scrumptious. I have been in a creative slump for a couple days. I just have been feeling meh, and tired after having my sister and her two kids here. It was havoc in my household. Having family or any guests are so good, because the obvious fact, kids can play and learn and keep each other occupied. The work, though, does not end...I still have to learn to relax a bit, I am doing that now more when my sweet munchkin is napping. How do mothers do it all? I ask once again...?

Sweet potato zucchini frittatas

Sweet potato zucchini frittatas was a quick and easy lunch that I just whipped up in a jiffy. I actually saw an amazing sweet potato zucchini loaf from Donna Hay and I wanted to recreate it. Pinterest is such a great tool to find what you're looking for or what you're not looking for...But somehow find a use for it. All this baking is leaving my stocked fridge pretty stacked and not a lot of time to eat it all, or it's not necessarily the time, but the waistline that doesn't allow it.

Peppermint crisp cups

Peppermint crisp cups are absolutely amazing... These desserts have been a lifesaver this week, just because we have come close to melting. The heat has been crazy this whole week. I made these cups one evening and they were so much enjoyed after we had a barbeque.

Apricot coconut pancakes

Apricot coconut pancakes are calling my name right about now, it's summer written all over it. I just came back from my vacation in South Africa and after a whole month of winter I am embracing the summer and these pancakes just make it even more of a celebration.

Mini Malva puddings

Mini Malva puddings are giving me the heads up for these last few days ahead before we head home for vacation in South Africa. I am beyond excited even though staying home in France where all is easier (toddler wise) I don' t care about all of the nitty gritty stuff when it comes to traveling and moving around for a whole month, I just want to dive into all South Africa has to offer. The means for a night off, me not cooking and occupying my son with his niece and nephews.

Double chocolate oat cookies

Double chocolate oat cookies might be my favorite cookie recipe just yet. There are two things to consider when a cookie is just right and they are a tad of health and a whole lot of chocolate!
