Lentil hand pies

Lentil hand pies are that kind of snack that you can have any time of the day, especially when it's combined with this amazing tangy tomato sauce. I made a huge batch of lentil bobotie and I seriously can't get enough. It's so tasty and keeps me full for quite some time.

Spicy Thai chicken stirfry

Spicy Thai chicken zoodles stirfry is my love declaration to Thai cuisine. I have always loved stir fry and I guessed I had it all in the bag, I mean all you have to do is just fry some chicken and veg and load up some sweet and sour sauce from the supermarket. Man, did I not know what I was missing. My husband thought that is all I could make. (so he did marry me for love after all, because I would make it on a regular. Just because it's always a go to when you don't know what to make, and then it gets pretty stale after a while. So this a great way of mixing it up. This is your game changer when it comes to stirfry.
Vegan Breakfast Brioche

Brioche breakfast loaf

Brioche breakfast loaf is my new favorite way of eating bread in general. I am not much of a bread eater, but when it's super good, like this loaf. I can't say no! I love Brioche and it's a favorite of the French as well. There are so many recipes on how to use this dough. I made this loaf, and it took a bit of time, but it was no time till every crumb was devoured. My son loved it so much, and usually, he gets pretty over things when he eats it more than once! But no one in this household was sick of having a slice of heaven for pretty much every meal of the day until there was no more!

Roasted Carrot butternut soup

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!

Pumpkin red onion quiche

Pumpkin red onion quiche is the savory treat that I am craving the most these days. I'm kind of over stews and heavily cooked comforting meals, therefore quiche is just the thing. It's light, filling and comforting at the same time. With summer, hopefully' around the corner. These quiches that are healthier than the regular quiches, so they will not deviate you to get summer body ready.

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.
Chickpea waffles

Mushroom Spinach Chickpea waffles

Mushroom Spinach waffles are just YUM. We recently purchased a Tefal snack collection toaster that can do the works like yum toastees, muffins, donuts and Waffles. The sucky thing is that you have to buy the other plates for the donuts etc, but I just love the functionality of an appliance that can do so much. So that's why I certainly can vouch for this product. I can't wait to buy the donut plates so I can bake some donuts already! My son's first birthday and I am already undecisive between a waffle or donut bar? Choices, choices...I have forgotten how much I love the crunchy bite of a fresh waffle. Now I made these with chickpea flour that needs no eggs to get them combined. I just love Chickpea flour. It has a unique taste, but it's seriously so good and loaded with protein.

Chocolate tahini cranberry brownies

Chocolate tahini cranberry brownies are delectably sweet and perfect for an afternoon treat. Goey, chocolaty and tangy sounds about right, right up my ally that is! What is it about chocolate, coffee and stranger things that have me hooked? They all resemble a little bit of me time when baba has gone down for his afternoon nap. I won't ramble on about these yummies because you'll just have to make them for yourselves to try. I don't know what it is, this weather, the rain or what that makes me crave chocolate so much lately. It has been this bad since my son has been born and he is almost a year. One more month to go- that's crazy!!
