Happy New Year
Wishing you health, happiness and all the best in 2018! No resolutions for me this year, still trying to carry out those I promised myself last year! I know better now not get carried away 😉 Anyway, 2018 is going to be another great year with its load of adventures and challenges but I’m ready.
While everyone is detoxing, not that I don’t need it, I just felt like baking something easy and heart-warming. This cake is just it! A classic, usually done with pineapple, revisited here with potassium loaded bananas. Continue reading “Upside Down Banana Cake”
Eggplants or Aubergines? Does it really matter when all that counts is that smokey, rich and creamy flesh turned into a beautiful, mouth-watering dip? This is definitely a favourite in our home. For me, it’s just as delicious and it ranks high up there with its ubiquitous partner hummus; although I must say there is never any baba ganoush left at the end of the meal.

I cannot believe it’s been almost a year since my last post! So many things have happened these last 12 months but the most important is that I have once again moved country!

I can’t believe I’ve been absent for so long. Last week was the 1st birthday of my blog and I was really looking forward to a special post but I was on holiday enjoying myself in Cape Town.

I’m so happy to be back! The holidays were great but seem far away now. Straight back into the routine and teaching 18 hours this year has sure changed my days! But now that I’m settled, I have time to try new recipes and get back to my blog! I’ve kept my eyes open this summer when visiting markets and walking around Europe, taking in inspiration from everywhere I could. My suitcases were actually full of ingredients and spices rather than clothes and other souvenirs! Continue reading “Spicy Chickpea Salad”
