Brûléed hasselback Butternut

Brûléed hasselback Butternut is such an incredible dish. It's super easy and so so delicious. It might not be the healthiest, but who needs an excuse in 2020 am I right? I certainly need a decent spoil on my festive table this year and this dish is the way to go!

Festive spiced chocolate chip cookies

Festive spiced chocolate chip cookies are part of my baking itinerary this festive season. How quickly and super long this year has felt. It feels pretty weird making my first batch of festive treats, I just blinked and it's December again. Chocolate chip is a favorite for so many households. Who doesn't love chocolate or desserts? These are spiced with ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Bringing some Christmas cheer to a very different Christmas that's for sure!

Hot chocolate croissant french toast bake

Hot chocolate croissant french toast bake, let's be honest here, there is just simply no competition when it comes to croissants...they are flakey, buttery and uber delicious bakes in a "hot chocolate" custard. This hot chocolate croissant french toast bake is undeniably the must make brunch dish you've been looking for.

Tipsy tart cupcakes

Tipsy tart cupcakes are just another way to celebrate this Festive season. Whatever the occasion calls for these cupcakes are a perfect way to set the mood. Sticky toffee and delectable toffee kind of puddings are what I'm living for this festive season. Easy on the booze this time around, but none the less I'm not skipping on the sticky gooey goodness.

Lentil Bobotie sausage rolls

Lentil bobotie sausage rolls are a must on your festive table. These scrumptious little pies are so tasty and will even appease the meat-eaters out there. Lentil bobotie is a staple in our household and I can even dare to say so myself this recipe is one for the books to make over and over again. The festive season can be very stressful and work some, so sometimes it's nice to make some ahead of time.

Festive plant-based bowl

The festive plant-based bowl couldn't come at a better time. Christmas is around the corner and we are spending Christmas with friends this year, which is great since I am certainly not in the mood for cooking. But I'll be carrying along some of these delish goodies on this plate right here. The miso mushroom gravy is absolutely out of this world and the combo of this with the smooth mash, spicy-sweet veggie roast, and crunchy seed loaf is a winning combination. Christmas is going to jolly..!

Chocolate s'mores cake

Chocolate s' mores cake is certainly the way to spend your holidays. My son and I are bigg fans of the marshmallow frosting and I swear if there is anything that makes this cake even more amazing is the fact that this cake is plant-based and topped with hazelnuts and chopped chocolate for extra measure.

Miso roasted carrot butternut soup

Miso Roasted carrot butternut soup is such an amazing twist to a classic butternut soup. I have fallen in love with white miso paste. I have recently tried it for the first time, where was I you might ask? hiding under a rock or something, but this paste honestly is so so good! it's subtile, adds a bit of sweetness and unami to the soup. Especially with the gomasio sprinkle and the other toppings, this soup is the bomb!

Chai spiced pecan banana bread

I can't believe Christmas is only a couple days away. This week has been quite hard because I have been missing my family back in SA so much. I think this time of year is super special and also hard in a lot of ways. For us, it's the fact that life goes on over here and you kind live in these seasons apart from what your family is experiencing back home. They have vacation, sunshine, and togetherness and over here we're kind of slummin it on our own, whilst still working. Therefore I have been baking more than usual, so we can get more of the festive vibes going.

Caramel soaked pumpkin fritters

Caramel soaked pumpkin fritters are just amazing as they sound and look. I wanted to recreate my utmost favorite side dish that tastes like dessert. These fritters are life changing and you'll want to make them for every Sunday lunch from now on. I thought they might be quite fitting for the Christmas day, just because absolutely spoiling yourself is what it's all about!
