Chocolate caramel tart makes me think of the festive season that is ahead. I know a warmly baked pudding is something I would choose in this cold any day, but a sweet delectable chocolate caramel tart cannot be denied. It's made with a chocolate buckwheat base, slightly bitter caramel filling, topped with a dark chocolate ganache topping. I have been seeing some tarts on social media quite a bit and I have been craving this tart that I made a couple years ago. This tart is perfect for the mid-week slump and even my husband that is a fast food lover by choice said it was tasty. So I guess this tart qualifies as a cheat meal for the connoisseurs out there.

Turmeric chickpea curry and spelt naan is a perfect, quick and easy comforting meal for these colder evenings. In fact, it feels as though summer is still here with us, but it's quite obvious that winter is on the horizon. When the sun starts setting more earlier each day, I want curry. Not that I don't want to eat it always anyway. a True curry lover loves curry whether it's hot or not- in terms of the wheater that is. I like my curry pretty mild thank you very much and this curry ticks all the boxes for me.

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...

Roasted carrot butternut soup is one of my favorite soups ever. I know I've said it before because everything that I make is my favorite...So I am a bit misleading. I love butternut soup and have made a few kids in the past, curry butternut soup, butternut chickpea soup and butternut chili soup. I have to say that the combo of carrot and butternut absolutely taste amazing. The carrot adds that tinge of sweetness that is so unexpected. I promise you, this is so easy and tasty you'll want to make it over and over again!

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...

Easy sourdough bread has got me baking bread like there is no tomorrow. I've stocked up on these baked goodies and there are more than a few slices frozen for those much-needed carb days. Since I have been living in France and surrounded by Boulangeries, I was sure to be bitten by the bread baking bug. Now there are a few others that are high on my list. You'll just have to wait and see...

Cozy beef lentil stew is one of my latest favorite recipes. The weather has been pretty indecisive just as Autumn aught to be I guess. I have switched my cupboards layered with winter goodies, but the sunshine has been pretty sweet lately. What makes this stew so perfect is the fact that its low carb, healthy and packet with winter veggies that will keep you fuller for longer when the winter chills do decide to come along!

Bobotie Times two, which means, made two different ways than the traditional recipes we all have come to love...I like to cook the "favorites" every now and then and add my own twist to it. I guess I would never have made them if I was not living overseas, but you tend to gravitate back to what you know and comforts you. I experimented with a dish called Bobotie. It is not a traditional Christmas dish, but makes a great dinner and Sunday lunch!

Mini Malva puddings Bailey's cream are seriously yum! Come on what is better than a Malva pudding! Those who don't know, gosh you are missing out! This pudding is a proper Sunday lunch dessert. Served with a ridiculous amount of hot custard or cream...
