Superfood chocolate bark

When I was little, I loved Cadbury's fruit and nut chocolate. The crunchy nuts, the chewy raisins...I don't eat Cadbury's anymore, but I wanted to recreate that memory and taste. The superfood chocolate bark was born. Toasted almonds and cranberries or rainsins in...

One pot lamb curry

I get biodynamic lamb from Moorelands lamb (http://www.moorlandslamb.com.au/) – straight from the farmer! It’s inexpensive and there is no in between commission cut for anyone. Both parties benefit. If you ever think that you can’t afford organic, you can! There are...

Homemade chocolate easter eggs

Easter is around the corner and I can smell a chocolate fest! My girls used Easter as an excuse to get me to make some chocolate. I’ve made eggs before, but never with the white and yellow middle – so I thought, ‘why not’? Thankfully, it turned out well on the first...

I’m a big fan of cashews now and I’ve been using them in recipes like pastas, steamed veg, Indian snacks, pesto, etc. I came across a recipe for cashew nut cookies, but they used processed sugar and flour which I didn’t want to use. So I tweaked it a lot and added...

Besan and buckwheat roti – flatbread

I love to make meals / dishes with veggies mixed in them, so my kids get to eat one thing and they still get loads of nutrients without knowing they are eating their veggies, protein and fiber all rolled into one. I often reach for gluten-free flours and I make mostly...

10 minute pesto with greens

Pesto is so versatile, I find myself using it so many times when my mind is a blank and my vegetable crisper is on zero. I also find that it is an easy way to get a whole load of nutrients into kids. I've made beetroot pestos (okay, we can call it a dip!), kale...

Tuna Quinoa Salad

Like a lot of days, I get engrossed in doing something and forget about the time. I usually like to get dinner ready before the kids come home from school. But sometimes I bring them home and then cook – this is a crazy time as the kids want to chill and I want to...
