Chocolate chip sweet potato bread

Chocolate chip sweet potato bread is a bit unconventional than the good old classic banana bread recipe, but this loaf is so surprisingly delicious, dare I say it's even better than banana bread. It's fluffy, sweet, and light. Perfect for breakfast or as a snack!

Cajun burger salad bowl

Cajun burger salad bowl is the perfect light lunch or dinner. This protein-packed meal is super filling and ticks all of the boxes when you're looking for something easy and light. I love sweet potato and adding this to the burger, with little pops of white beans in between every bite is just perfection. Not only is this burger patty the real deal, but also the loaded fries salad that goes along with it.

Mini mushroom bacon scroll bread

Mini mushroom scroll bread is somewhat of an epiphany whilst making mushroom bacon. I was in the mood for "pot brood" traditionally served with a braai/BBQ in South Africa. Now that heritage day is all about heritage and not that I need to have an excuse to make anything South African I was thinking of making something savory for a change.

Sweet potato white bean stew

Sweet potato butter bean stew with mango jalapeño salsa is the perfect spring meal. Since the weather is acting up like it always does this time of year. This light and tangy stew are just simply delish and perfectly light before the actual heavy heat comes around. Summer vacation or our winter vacation is around the corner and I am simply looking forward to some quality family time.

Blood orange waffles

Blood orange waffles couldn't come at a better time. It's spring pretty soon and oh my goodness I cannot wait. It's been a pretty tough two weeks since my son's second birthday. The notorious flue has gotten it grips on me. Hopefully it soon will pass, but for now, a crunchy stack of gluten-free waffles with these tangy blood oranges will suffice! I topped these vegan waffles with homemade coconut yogurt, bananas, coconut nectar and salted pistachio's.

Sweet potato waffles

Sweet potato waffles have never come at a better time. This weekend, I am home alone once again and the only thing that can feul me with the toddler filled days are of course waffles. Not any old waffle will do. Only sweet potato waffles can do the trick. I went to the farmers' market this morning and I had to time it pretty nicely because sprinting through has to come with a game plan. Snacks, water and a list of to buy's. All the necessities led to a pretty smooth morning and a much-needed nap time afterwards (for the both of us btw).
