Banana bread cheesecake slices

Banana bread cheesecake slices have been haunting me for a couple weeks now. I aced the recipe within the first try, but to shoot these beauties perfectly was difficult indeed. To capture their deliciousness was truly a challenge. Without melted chocolate or caramel to seal the deal...anything indeed can look delectable. But these do not need the glorification of caramel to make them look delectable. They already are.

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.
Blackforest pancakes

Blackforest pancakes

Blackforest pancakes are my absolute favorite way of eating pancakes just coz, chocolate for one, coconut cream and super sweet soft cherry compote. All of these sound pretty fancy, but they are so easy to prepare and all of this will take you more or less thirty minutes to make. Easy, done and eat!

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.

Pineapple upside down cake

Pineapple upside down cake has summer written all over it. It's light, decadent and has a sweet tang thanks to the pineapple. I am in love with these last couple days. The mornings are still a bit fresh, but then later in the day, it gets slightly heated and then cools down once again around four in the afternoon. The birds sing and the wildflowers, especially the pops of red from the poppy flowers make me so happy. There are lilac trees and elderflower trees, that I didn't even know was around us a year ago. I watch our son play, and he is just having a ball playing outside. This season of life I am enjoying so much.

Banana breakfast cake

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!

Caramel filled Hertzoggies

Caramel Filled Hertzoggies is the hybrid of an SA favorite cookie that normally has an apricot filling. These, these cookies are just super duper amazing! I absolutely love the normal kind of Hertzoggies, but I am sure that these are from now on my absolute favorite.

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.

Vegan Coconut Milktart

Vegan coconut Milktart is the real deal, I assure you. Can you make this beloved dessert healthy? Yes indeed. It's a traditional dessert that resembles something close to a custard flan. In my house, I try to healthify a few recipes, even though I do love the old favorites just the way they are. I love coconut milk and have a few cans lined in my cupboard to whip up something when the time calls for it.

Tangy Chicken Curry

Tangy Chicken Curry is a dish that has been served numerous times in my household. I have made this dish over and over again for my husband and he just seems to love the combination of the tangy apricot sauce, coconut cream, and turmeric!
