Blueberry pear crumble is a comfy alternative to my usual green smoothie lately. Since spring is nowhere to be seen and Castres is dreary and rainy like usual. I need a pick me up because I just can't take this rain anymore. This blueberry pear crumble is just so yum, because first of all, it has creamy almond butter in, alongside with sweet pear and tangy blueberry. Absolutely yum!

Beet matcha ice cream is not only for the connoisseur or these of required tastes but for everyone who kind of is searching for a bit something extra to pizzaz up their day. I recently jumped on the beet bandwagon, and I might be a couple months too late no thanx to living in the countryside. Where things aren't as accessible when you want to live a healthy lifestyle. Finally, I found beet powder and it tastes super amazing, so sweet and has the most vibrant color!

Quickly baked falafels are super duper easy to make and sooo easy to eat as well. I have been trying out eating plant-based and it's been nearly two weeks. I don't eat that much meat in general and haven't been eating dairy for up to two years. After skipping meat for these plant-based goodies, I have to say I feel pretty good! These falafels are so easy to make and are very filling, so meat is really not missed over here. I might just do this for real.

Banana bread donuts are the equivalent to my match made in heaven. It's a gooey, moist donut with a peanut butter, strawberry maple glaze and it's seriously too addicting. I have been trying to up my donut game since my last vegan donuts was an epic fail and I was over baking them after my son's birthday.

Banana breakfast cake will solve all my breakfast problems these days...windy weather, lazy days, drowning in rain equals banana cake if you please. I will opt for banana cake for every situation, it is that good! Made with cooked amaranth, banana and buckwheat flour. This moist cake is hard to believe that it is actually good for you!

Carb clever choc hazelnut granola is my preference for breakfast. This granola is my guilty pleasure. Eaten for breakfast, lunch, and dinner...I just can't seem to attain myself when it comes to this carb clever choc loaded heaven. When we go back to visit in SA the very first thing I want to do is go to Woolworths. It's our equivalent of whole foods, homemade, luxury packed, what's for dinner store. a Store like that in my Ville is the thing that I miss the most. Here premade meals are the very worst and even healthy snacking alternatives can taste like cardboard...

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...

French Countryside barbecue is just a way of jazzing up your entertaining skills for the Sunday barbecue.

Barbecue is part of our South African Culture and something to be proud of. The traditions around barbeque are something that can't be done without over the weekends. I guess we have more in common with the Frenchies than I thought. Come and get a few ideas and recipes on how to host and decorate the ultimate French barbecue.
