Maple Roly Poly

Maple Roly Poly also is known as Rolpoeding in Afrikaans is one of my absolute favorite desserts since I was a little girl. Wheater this recipe is truly South African, it is one of the essential desserts from my South African core. Sunday afternoons post lunch we will have generous scoops of this delicious dessert with warm custard or cold cream.

Caramelized Butternut Shallot lasagne

Caramelized Butternut Shallot lasagne is perfect for a Sunday lunch or dinner options. It stores pretty well too for a leftover alternative and fills all the holes and gaps for comfort food goodness that the winter creates. Not only is it so easy to prepare, but also a budget saver. This lasagne can go pretty far with a whole roasted butternut, couple slices of whole wheat pasta sheets and creamy bearnaise sauce.

Mocha Lamingtons

Mocha Lamingtons are just unforgettably perfect for tea time, after dinner sweet spot or late munchie hour goodness. I absolutely love lamingtons, because like so many small bite size dessert it makes me think of my childhood days. These beauties were devoured after church alongside koeksisters, caramel tarts and milk tart. So many South African goodies that are in fact unforgettable and attached to my childhood memories.

Turmeric chickpea curry

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.

Broccoli quinoa corn patties

Broccoli quinoa corn patties are a quick lunch alternative when you're on the go. Loaded with plant-based protein and super filling for those days when you need it the most. Serve with a salad, healthy carbs or as a patty on a vegan burger bun. I made a whole batch of these and froze the rest to eat later. It's a win-win, healthy plus easy is what I need right now.

Savory sweet pain perdu

Savory sweet pain perdu is known as french toast. The famous French dish is typically a way to use old bread and make it new again. Oh and what a way to make it new, especially fried up in coconut oil topped with sweet potato, maple coconut soy bacon and drizzle with copious amounts of maple syrup. Thank you, the French, you know what's good about living.

Sweet potato zucchini frittatas

Sweet potato zucchini frittatas was a quick and easy lunch that I just whipped up in a jiffy. I actually saw an amazing sweet potato zucchini loaf from Donna Hay and I wanted to recreate it. Pinterest is such a great tool to find what you're looking for or what you're not looking for...But somehow find a use for it. All this baking is leaving my stocked fridge pretty stacked and not a lot of time to eat it all, or it's not necessarily the time, but the waistline that doesn't allow it.

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.

Banana bread cheesecake slices

Banana bread cheesecake slices have been haunting me for a couple weeks now. I aced the recipe within the first try, but to shoot these beauties perfectly was difficult indeed. To capture their deliciousness was truly a challenge. Without melted chocolate or caramel to seal the deal...anything indeed can look delectable. But these do not need the glorification of caramel to make them look delectable. They already are, sans caramel and all.
