I love this point of the summer. The days are hot and the farmer's market is overflowing with amazing goodies. Apricots being of of my favourites. I love their sweet flavour and soft texture. Even better that they go well in something sweet and stand up really well alongside chicken grilled on the BBQ.

Stay Cool Noodles, Stay Cool

It’s summertime and living is easy. I don’t know about you but when summer hits, I’m much more interested in soaking up the heat from the sunshine rather than at the stove.

I do what I do because I want to inspire you to get in the kitchen and learn that eat well doesn't have to be hard. There's this misconception that cooking is complicated. Is it really or is that a story that you're telling yourself because you haven't really learned how to do it? It starts with some basic concepts and having the right attitude to make it fun.

Lemon Chia Seed Muffins

Mar 07, 2018
 
Lemon and coconut are one of my favourite flavour combos right now so naturally when I saw a this recipe from the amazing Donna Hay, I had to experiment and came up with my own version to of course include coconut. Adding chia seeds give these a little bit more texture and the coconut butter drizzle cuts down the sugar without sacrificing flavour. 
 
And before we go on,...

I love soup. Especially in the winter (which seems to really want to stick around this year) it's easy to whip up a big batch on the stove on a Sunday afternoon and have it for quick lunches or dinner with a nice salad and some crusty bread.

 

Cauliflower is getting a lot of love lately because it's one of those versatile veggies that you can do pretty...
