Blueberry maize meal pancakes

Blueberry maize meal pancakes are a super delish way to start the day and they are particularly perfect for pancake day that falls on pancake Sunday. Spring is around the corner and these pancakes give me all the feels with a SA twist in the mix. I never really used maize meal in many recipes except for making porridge or as a side dish to a braai, but this add into these fluffy pancakes are absolutely genius. Maize meal a.k.a cornmeal is corse, fluffy when cooked and ad's that sturdy factor to a recipe.

Peanut butter pancakes

Peanut butter pancakes, is there anything better? I could inhale these every single morning and whats's even better is that they get topped with extra peanut butter and banana, my absolute fave! I can not let go of my love of peanut butter, I am so fortunate to be able to make a batch whenever I feel like it and I love to add a different twist to it like adding vanilla and cinnamon.

Gluten free lemon poppy seed muffins

Gluten free Poppy seed muffins are perfectly tangy, crunchy, soft and delectable for a cold winters morning or afternoon. Citrus fruits are in abundance right now, and everything lemony is my current craving situation. What's even more special about these is the nuttiness that the poppy seeds provide alongside the beautiful add on of almond and spelt flour.

Zesty warm berry tapioca pudding

Zesty warm berry tapioca pudding is just a wonderful belly warmer in the mid of winter. Citrus fruit is in abundance right now, and I never really liked citrus fruit in cooking, but I have to say experimenting with the very vibrant fruit has been amazing. They go well in baked goods, salads, stir-fries and chocolate, and who doesn't like chocolate? Using the pulp to the zest of the skin adds just so much flavor to meals. Especially this creamy tapioca pudding, it's seriously sooo good!

Tahini caramel pretzel granola

Tahini caramel pretzel granola is simply the best way to start the day. Seriously, I am addicted to this granola right now. I add it onto oats, yogurt, smoothies and fresh fruit. Autumn is almost at it's end and the mornings have become very dark and gloomy, which leads to a very difficult way to wake up in the morning. BUT the upside is this granola, it makes me exited to wake up in the morning, even though lately I am ravenous like in all the time...so I have to make another batch very soon!

Coffee banana crumb cake

Coffee banana crumb cake is a delish snack for those sweet tooth afternoons. What's best about this cake is the fact that this cake is banana bread's good looking cousin and all of those crumbs add's just the perfect tantalizing taste that you need for a late afternoon pick me up.

Gingerbread spiced french toast

Gingerbread spiced french toast is my absolute favorite way of eating bread these days. I have to confess, looking at my website recipes, I know now that I am for sure a sweet tooth and I am not ashamed to say it. All within boundaries, of course, I like to start my day the right way, the sweet way that is and this french toast is just the way to go!

Pumpkin cilantro falafel bowls

Pumpkin cilantro falafel bowls are my official first recipe for this season.  Autumn is just a couple days away, and that means that all things comforting, filled with layers and goodness is on its way. These falafels are just the perfect intro into one of my favorite times of the year. I love the change color of the leaves, the smell of spices and the slow mornings even more so than spring. The colors are just so inspiring and it just brings out the hues of my soul.

Coffee fig muffins

Coffee fig muffins are the perfect way to start these cozy mornings. They are somewhat between a healthy muffin and a scrumptious piece of cake. I love the crunch of the hazelnuts and the bits of dried figs in between every bite. With a steaming cup of JO, every morning will start off great!

Ratatouille tart

Ratatouille tart is the perfect ending to summer. The fresh tomatoes are in abundance right now and it's so hard to believe that summer is coming to an end. I totally love tomatoes and I have made a few versions of a tomato tart, but this version is very french inspired. Ratatouille is a typical french dish that is found as a side to various dishes.
