Raspberry & Coconut Oat Cookies

Breakfast, Dessert, Recipes | January 17, 2018 | By

Whether it’s breakfast on the go or a bed time snack (and everything in between) these cookies fit the bill. the raspberries add a freshness that is so delicious and different from other  bakes i’ve made. Plus, they are so easy to whip up! there aren;t many rules, so if you don’t have any raspberries on hand, see what else you can chuck in instead.

Spinach & Mushroom pancake stack

Breakfast, Lunch, Recipes | November 15, 2017 | By

When i made these, it was for breakfast, but you could enjoy them at any time of the day. Shitki mushrooms are my favourite at the moment, but any mushrooms would work for this! I love adding spinach to pancake batter because it turns them such a beautiful colour.  Its a great way to add more veggies into your day while still eating delicious food.

Double Chocolate Raspberry Muffins

Breakfast, Dessert, Recipes | November 11, 2017 | By

There is nothing better then freshly baked muffins and i’ve been craving muffins all week. i recently bought buckwheat flakes in a sample sale for the first time and had no idea what to do with them other then use them as porridge (but thats not exciting). So i decided to chuck them in to a rough muffin batter  and turn them into delicious chocolaty muffins. They really help to bulk them out and make them a lot more filling then just using flour.

Nutrition, Recipes | August 28, 2017 | By

The old wives who came up with “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” may not have been telling tales after all. This is one of the most thrown around nutritional sayings, and there is some variation of it in most languages. There are so many “super fruits” around these days, which have been collected from every corner of the planet, that it’s often easy to forget the classics. Maybe it’s time we start looking in our own back yards for the ultimate health fix rather then exotic countries.

Chocolate & Miso Banana Loaf

Recipes | March 30, 2017 | By

My banana loaf just got upgraded. A chocolate & miso upgrade!! The salty miso paste has given it a salted caramel kick and it’s unbelievable. I was inspired to add miso to my favourite banana bread recipe after a workshop with Miso tasty.  After playing around with the quantities, this banana bread hits the spot.  If there are still left overs after a day, try toasting it with a spread of butter 🙂

Blood Orange cake

Dessert | January 22, 2017 | By

No matter how many blood oranges i cut open, I’m always mesmerised by how beautiful they look. I’ve been drinking them freshly juiced every morning for weeks now trying to get my vitamin c dose, so I decided it was about time to start cooking with them. There was only one thing I could think of to show them off… a blood orange upside down cake of course.

Welcome to my new “Beauty” section

Welcome to my new “Beauty” section

beauty | January 10, 2017 | By

My name is Anna and I am an beautaholic. No, seriously! I have more products then I  actually fit in my draws. I’m a sucker for anything new and exciting, especially if it comes in shiny packaging.  This, mixed with a quarterly health & beauty sample sale, could only lead to one thing…my new beauty section.

My only  dilemma is natural vs full on high tech products.

I’ve decided to start sharing my thoughts on my newest obsessions (and biggest wastes of money) here, in the hope that you will be spared draws crammed with products.

Enjoy x
