Oats with Warm Cinnamon Apple, Puffed Quinoa & Cacao Nibs

Waking up on a cold October morning and knowing I need something warming and substantial to get my day started, the first thought is to make a pot of oats. Standing by the hob, sipping on a mug of tea that I’m hugging into myself and stirring the cinnamon through the almond milk. It smells like Autumn. The trees outside the front of my flat are already starting to show bare branches. Storm Ophelia stripped them throughout the night. The colder months are my favourite, I’m so happy read more

Simple Coconut Breakfast Loaf with Almond Butter & Nectarine

I like the simple things in life; moving my body, meditation, a good book, spending time with my loved ones, a warm mug of herbal tea, the sound of the heavy rain against windows, being in nature.

Golden Granola with Rhubarb & Raspberry Compote

And so my love for granola continues to grow. This might be the second granola recipe on my site but I can see many, many more happening in the future.

I am so happy to have cooked my first batch of rhubarb this year! It felt pretty special; all that gorgeous colour, the smell of ginger all over my hands and some Fleetwood Mac playing very loudly in the background (obviously I was simultaneously cooking and doing my best Stevie Nicks impersonation). The sun was shining in through the open read more
