Cookie dough tart

Cookie dough tart, yep this one is a goodie and I'm not talking about eating peanut butter out of the jar kind of good, I'm talking about eating raw cookie dough, creamy cashew filling plus the creamiest chocolate ganache you've ever tasted. I might call this tart something else, but for sensitive readers, it will remain the cookie dough tart!

Cake batter hummus

Cake batter hummus is my new favorite dip lately, I mean who doesn't like cake and eating it as a spread...Might not the conventional way to make hummus, but in this case, I'm totally OKAY with being wrong!

Salted caramel mousse pots

Salted caramel mousse pots are my ultimate treat right now, and the best part is not only the caramel but the fact that they are made with dates, sweet potato, coconut milk, and the cherry on top, salted caramel popcorn. Can I just say it again, living plant-based is anything but boring!

Chocolate chunk cookies

Chocolate chunk cookies are definitely what my week needs, I am such a cookie fanatic. I crumble it even on my oatmeal or smoothies in the morning, just because I know these guys are made of the good stuff. I mean a little bit of cookie early in the morning can do anyone some good! They are so crumbly, chocolaty chunks of heaven and might make you crumble on even the stranges food combinations, because they are just that good!

Salted chocolate tahini brownies

Salted chocolate tahini brownies are indeed needed after this very very cold week and weekend. I am thankful for a house with proper heating because I tell you even if I ate this whole batch of brownies it wouldn't have heated me. They did help to curb the craving for chocolate and the added helping of salt did its job in the very best to make this recipe more spectacular. It makes me want to celebrate Christmas early this year!

Vegan Hertzoggies

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).

Sour cherry lavender ice cream

Sour cherry lavender ice cream is a combo that is hard to forget. The combination of flavors is just absolutely amazing. I was never a big fan of lavender just because of the obvious fact that it tastes like soap, but just a tint with the sour cherries kind of works for me. The french is quite into lavender, especially in Provance. We went to visit a couple of years back, and the smell of lavender is just so intoxicating.

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.
