Vanilla & Cardamom Hot Chocolate

Hot drinks are my jam. You can pretty much always find me with a mug of something warm no matter what I’m up to (cue the nickname Multi Beverage McFarlane, because even if I’m sipping on a glass of water/a smoothie/kombucha/whatever else, I’ll still have a mug in the other hand). I’m not a coffee drinker of any form. No latte, espresso or flat white here. I prefer to stick to herbal teas and other warm tonics. Mixing up plant milk with spices, nut butter and other read more

Creamy Dreamy Green Smoothie

I felt the need to introduce this dreamy beverage to you today and also share some really great advice I received last night. A friend of mine that I really admire sent me a sweet message with some words I needed to hear at the moment. Maybe you need to hear them too or know someone else who might, in which case please pass it on!

Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies with Orange & Ginger

Baking on a Sunday morning is possibly my favourite part of the weekend. It feels lazily productive, indulgent and then there’s the obvious appeal of a something sweet to savour with a hot mug of tea at the end of the process.

I didn’t know exactly what type of sweet I wanted to make but I had three ingredients that were read more

Warm Tamari & Lime Potato Bowl with a Tangy Tahini Drizzle

My love for salads is eternal and it upsets me that they’ve endured quite a bad reputation. Limp, lifeless, bland. So sad. Salads should be vibrant, colourful, flavourful and awesome. This one encompasses all of these things (in my opinion). Something that is getting me ridiculously excited about future salads is the window boxes that Steven is currently assembling for me, he loves a DIY project. I can’t wait to grow my own fresh herbs! So far on my ‘to grow’ list read more

Blueberry & Grapefruit Muffins with Oat Crumb

As I sit down to write this I’m just back from a walk in the park with Steven and sipping on a mug of herbal tea. I’m feeling a little brighter, lighter and a whole lot fresher for it. The sun is shining down and the wind is still cool. The easiest, nicest way to hit the refresh button. Plus, daffodils were popping their sunshine-yellow heads up everywhere which is guaranteed to bring a smile to pretty much anybody’s face. Walks through the park are the perfect punctuation read more
