Vegan Hertzoggie tart

Vegan Hertzoggie tart has been on my mind for ages. Hertzoggies is one of my absolute favorite South African desserts ever. They usually come in a small cookie form and is enjoyed over tea and chats late afternoon. I certainly love this tart almost as much as the actual cookies. I have made a smaller cookie version too that I will share with you very soon, but for now this delish tart will take over your taste buds.

Pumpkin French toast sticks

Pumpkin french toast sticks are just perfect for international French toast day. They taste amazing. All the infusions of Autumn are there. The hints of gingerbread, the sweetness of the pumpkin and the chocolate sauce are just wonderful. I know I should probably get started on making all those festive recipes, but I am still stuck on pumpkin and fall over here?!

Super spinach falafel bowls

Super spinach falafel bowls are coming to my rescue this week. It has been a week post vacation and while winter is in full swing I haven't gotten the hang of the cold just yet. Neither has my son, and he is not a happy camper when the flu bug has gotten a hold of him. This ever so nourishing bowl was absolutely delish and I have fallen in love with these super easy falafels.

Pecan brûléed banana tarts

Pecan brûléed banana tarts are just amazing. I love all the pumpkin and apple pie creations at the moment, but for some reason I just have pecans and beautifully sugar coated banana's on my brain. I want to make a kind of pie one of these day's with my very own pastry ect, but when the craving hit's and you don't have the time for tassels or hassles, these little beauties sure do come in handy.

Rocket miso pesto butter Semolina

Rocket miso pesto butter Semolina with roasted tomatoes is such a beautiful dish. It took no more than twenty minutes to make this whole complete dish that can be enjoyed all on it's own or as a side dish for the festive season ahead. The cherry vine tomatoes are sweet and tangy perfect with the creaminess of the semolina.

Creamy candied apple melkkos

Creamy candied apple melkkos needs no introduction. This recipe like the multiple other South African recipes, nostalgic. It's like the rain pouring outside and the smell of the rain hitting the dry ground. The cinnamon taste with this creamy porridge/dessert just takes me back. I love the fact that you can have this breakfast/dessert either way.

Pumpkin fritters

Pumpkin fritters are vegan and oh so delicious! I was so surprised by these fritters that I made them two days in a row and even my better half could not tell the difference. They are crunchy on the inside and super soft and chewy. They remind me so much of my mother's pumpkin fritters that we would have for Sunday lunch and I think even she would say that they are tasty.

Maltabella Banana muffins

Maltabella banana muffins are absolutely amazing. I am going to rave about these muffins cos gosh they are close to the best muffins I have made so far. I wanted to get this recipe down pretty quick before I forgot how I made them. Maltabella is one of my favorite porridge from back home. We always pack our suitcases loaded with SA products and I am always sure to add this one stuffed in between the layers of clothing or extra food goodies I am bringing with.

Rainbow carrot butternut soup

Rainbow carrot butternut soup is super amazing and so nutritious. The season has come for warming soups and I absolutely love the fact that you can have a nutritional meal within half an hour or so. I made a batch of this lovely soup last week and I finished it in almost a day's time. I served this soup with a soft and chewy bread with a flavor punch, which was super amazing!

Matcha strawberry slices

Matcha strawberry slices are the perfect balance between sweet creamy and a bit of matcha bite. I love these bars because they are not too overly sweet and can be eaten as a mid-morning snack. They are the perfect pick me up, thanks to a powerful hit of caffeine. These bars for any mama will be life changing!
