Zucchini Bread

Did you know that a zucchini is technically a fruit? Mind blown. It’s the swollen ovary of the zucchini flower. Slightly off putting. Now with this new fact, I find it the perfect time to quote my mate Brian O’Driscoll when I say….”knowledge is knowing a zucchini is a...

Vegan Pumpkin Brownies

If a brownie was vegan, paleo and gluten-free, what the hell would they talk about first? These guys wouldn’t need to be THAT annoying brownie, their deliciousness would speak for itself and all their brownie friends wouldn’t get pissed off at their preachy,...

Vegan Banana Bread Cookies

The world is in chaos right now and the only thing that makes sense is banana bread. Maybe it’s a metaphor for us all in COVID lock-down? Like the brown banana, there you are languishing on your couch, feeling unwanted, squishy, perhaps a little smelly, and ready to...

Sweet Potato Loaf

Sweet potato and I are at odds over me trying to make him into crispy oven-baked fries and him refusing to do so. He’s been a total stubborn arse over the matter to be honest. Apart from this issue, he is amazingly compliant in other recipes, happily spreading the...
Nutella

Nutella

Want to know how Mr Ferrero named that brown sweet stuff? Someone asked him what was in it and he said “I’m nutelling you”. I wouldn’t tell anyone either because its full of crap that you really don’t want to eat like sugar, vegetable oil, skim milk powder and soy. I...

Matcha Chia Pudding

Well look at moi with my posh AF ingredients. So as far as green tea goes, matcha is by all accounts superior…full of antioxidants, calms the mind, improves cardiovascular health, does yoga every morning, never has a bad hair day, has better winged eyeliner than...

Gingerbread

Gingerbread

While I'm not one to start decking the halls until we at least make it to December 1st, I'm all up for testing Christmas recipes well in advance. Such is my dedication, I've been testing brandy for the pudding for months. Well, not brandy exactly, more like wine. Wine...

Caramel Slice

Caramel Slice

Caramel slice is one of those treats from your childhood. So sickly sweet from the condensed milk and loaded with sugar. It was always part of any good birthday party spread. I wouldn't dream of eating that version nowadays, so I decided to try my hand at a much...

Lime Pie Squares

Lime Pie Squares

So over a herbal tea (wine) I had an intellectual meeting of minds (rambling pointless conversation) with a couple of deep thinkers (my wine-drinking baes) about politics (our favourite smells). Limes made the top 5 of things I like the smell of. Seriously how good...

Chocolate Pots

Chocolate Pots

Looking for something super straight forward and simple for a mid-week dessert or a relaxed dinner party? I've got your back. You can jazz these babies up to make them look all pretty and special (a.k.a. like you've spent loads of time on them). They are so simple a...

Kladdkaka (Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake)

Kladdkaka (Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake)

You don't have to be called Sven or Ulrika to want to get this tastiness all up and around your mouth. It's everything you want in a dessert - chocolatey, dense and gooey. Those Swedes don't just do furniture and kitschy 70's pop bands, they know a thing or two about...

Lemon & Pistachio Macaroons

Lemon & Pistachio Macaroons

I've got a lover-ly bunch of coconuts...well at least I used to until Crossfit stole them. But that's another story. I do like coconut though. And seeing as coconut is the main ingredient in macaroons, well I like those too. What?? You're buying them from the store?...

Raw Banana Coconut Brownies

Raw Banana Coconut Brownies

It's brownie time bitches! Not just any brownie either, these mofos are raw and freaking fudgy as. Whizzed up in a matter of seconds, these one-dish-wonders are the answer to your chocolatey prayers. I even snuck in some potassium-toting fruit so you don't feel guilty...

Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie

Don’t just relegate sweet potato to the dinner table, sneak that shizzle into dessert and help everyone along with their 5 a day. I used to make a baked version of this bad boy, but because I’m a genius (a.k.a. lazy cow) I came up with a shortcut to the mouthgasm that is my Sweet […]

Hazelnut Fudge

Hazelnut Fudge

Fudge me sideways! What is this chocolatey awesomeness?? It’s my freaking hazelnut freezer fudge that’s what. Super duper easy to knock together if you have a food processor. If you don’t, well go give yourself an uppercut. How do you even live?
