Vegan Hertzoggie is a very popular South African traditional recipe. It was always a dream of mine to recreate this recipe into a more "healthier" version, and even though there is still a decent amount of sugar in it. The vegan meringue and shortcrust base come pretty close to the original and all that sugar don't even matter with the first bite. Its international apricot day, I thought these cookies are the perfect recipe to share! These cookies are making me crave summer and home really badly. They were loved by my husband, our son and some of my friends (they had no clue they were vegan).

Rainbow carrot butternut soup is super amazing and so nutritious. The season has come for warming soups and I absolutely love the fact that you can have a nutritional meal within half an hour or so. I made a batch of this lovely soup last week and I finished it in almost a day's time. I served this soup with a soft and chewy bread with a flavor punch, which was super amazing!

Mocha Lamingtons are just unforgettably perfect for tea time, after dinner sweet spot or late munchie hour goodness. I absolutely love lamingtons, because like so many small bite size dessert it makes me think of my childhood days. These beauties were devoured after church alongside koeksisters, caramel tarts and milk tart. So many South African goodies that are in fact unforgettable and attached to my childhood memories.

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, sans caramel and all.

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 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 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 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 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.

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.
