I feel like we saw the first glimpses of Summer this week, which is super exciting for those of us in Melbourne. This year so far has basically been like Game of Thrones and Melbourne has been at ‘The Wall’ the entire time freezing their butts off in the blistering cold, while every other state has enjoyed the offerings of all the other seasons!
I'm kicking off my season of Christmas cooking with these delicious marbled gingerbread cookies! I went to Williams-Sonoma on the weekend as a treat (there's only one store in Melbourne!) and couldn't help myself when I saw a big Christmas tree adorned with copper cookie cutters! I chose a set of gingerbread men, all different sizes perfect for any occasion, a Christmas tree and a beautiful ornate star. I also picked up a box of Peppermint Bark because I couldn't help myself! It's too delicious and only comes around once a year!
Over the past few weeks I have been bringing you some delicious recipes in partnership with Just Veg. This week we have another two deliciously simple, healthy and fast recipes that are super easy to whip up. I've also got an amazing Mexican-style spice mix that you can make ahead of time and keep with your spice rack for anything from taco seasoning to the base of chilli con carne, or even a nice way to jazz up guacamole for your next BBQ!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I for one cannot wait! It's my favourite time of year. Lots of cooking, and getting together with friends. Plus Michael Buble's Christmas album and 'Love Actually'. And decorating. There's literally nothing I don't LOVE about the festive season.
Christmas is around the corner (it creeps up on me every single year!) and that means Summer BBQs, Christmas parties, New Year parties, holidays and trips to the beach. This week in partnership with Just Veg, I’ve created two super simple, delicious and nutritious salads that are perfect for all these summer holiday occasions. When you’re asked to ‘bring a plate’ try one of these simple recipes, you’ll be surprised how quick and easy these salads are.
Summer's almost here and it's nearly November which we all know means work break-up parties, Christmas get-togethers and weekend barbeques. Over the next few weeks in partnership with Just Veg, I will be bringing you the BEST summer entertaining recipes that are healthy, delicious and full to the brim with carrots!
Over the last week or so I’ve been testing out the brand new Abbott’s Village Bakery Gluten Free Bread range. Yes, I know what you’re all thinking – gluten free bread is the pits! BUT let me tell you, as soon as I opened this Abbott’s Village Bakery Gluten Free loaf of bread, I wasn’t just pleasantly surprised, I was gob-smacked.
Your morning tea is about a get a serious make over with my savoury butternut pumpkin muffins! I really love trying to squeeze in extra veg in different ways at snack times because, in all honesty, even though I'm a nutritionist, raw carrot sticks just don't do it for me.
I was up bright and early today packing orders for MixMe by Naturally Nutritious to post out and had a real hankering for crunchy granola. I've made this Tahini Maple Gluten-Free Granola a few times now but finally got all the textures and flavours right!
