French onion soup

French onion soup is such an easy and delicious recipe, according to my french friends advisements this soup is traditionally made in the evening for a lighter dinner, but I can certainly eat this for lunch or dinner, especially with that melty cheese bread on top.

Vegan potato salad

Vegan potato salad is the creamy nut-free, dairy-free, and oil-free alternative you've been looking for to make your braai or BBQ the bee's knees! Potato salad is probably one of the must-make recipes when hosting or attending a braai. Usually, it's full of egg, oil, and all kind of other "non" vegan things to eat, and yep reaching for that bland bowl of salad leaves for the second time is anything but appetizing. Well, now you've got something to bring and eat, that you know is all good!

Vegan Chocolate cruffins

Vegan chocolate cruffins is a MUST make recipe, if your advent baker then this recipe is for you. The proof certainly is in the crispy, crumbly pudding. I love pastries and boy they might not be the healthiest of food, but they certainly are worth every calorie, and making your own batch is even more rewarding!

Mushroom bourguignon pie

Mushroom bourguignon pie is a delightful plant-based pie recipe to try out. It's meaty, loaded with plant protein, flavor, and crunch! I topped this pie with filo pastry pockets, which gives it a very interesting look and feel, dare I say it's the best savory pie around...I think I just did!

Vegan pain au Chocolat

Vegan pain au Chocolat is nothing to be joking about the durable labor of making pastries will surely be worth the wait early in the morning, especially when they are chocolate filled and hot out of the oven accompanied by a cup of Jo. This is one thing that is not scarce this time of the year and that is baked goods. Cookies, cakes, sweets, and freshly baked pretzels are what awaits me when I go into town, and by this stage of the pregnancy and life, I am so keen to indulge.

Brioche Espresso Cinnamon knots

Brioche espresso cinnamon knots are the perfect day to start the week. I think I might make it a ritual to make baked goods for Mondays, I mean is there another way to start the week off right, or shall I say long weekend...Anyhow, these knots are 100% plant-based and it tastes heavenly. They are perfect for the festive season ahead, Cinnamon and Christmas just go together!

Roasted Blueberry brioche donuts

Roasted Blueberry brioche donuts are simply what vegan donut heaven was made for..National donut day is on our doorstep once again, and this time around I came prepared. Donuts are somewhat of a dark horse to me, you can either go all-in, deep-fried sugar covered the works, or play it safe by opting for a baked "healthier" donut instead, but let's be honest here, fried donuts are a must, even if it's just once a year...

Ratatouille tart

Ratatouille tart is the perfect ending to summer. The fresh tomatoes are in abundance right now and it's so hard to believe that summer is coming to an end. I totally love tomatoes and I have made a few versions of a tomato tart, but this version is very french inspired. Ratatouille is a typical french dish that is found as a side to various dishes.

Pecan pie crêpes

Pecan pie crêpes need no explanation. With fall all around, comfort food is needed. These are so easy to make and they'll be ready in no time for Sunday brunch. Fluffy pancakes plus candied pecans, and a creamy cheesecake filling. Yes, please.
