With a knowledge of the Italian language, it still makes me chuckle that ‘biscotti’ in every other language refers to this particular type of sweet treat, whereas ‘biscotti’ literally translates to mean ‘biscuits’.

There are … Continue reading Tofu Cream Cheese plus Artichoke and Chilli Cheese Dip

More is always more I say, when it comes to a chocolate drizzle, wouldn’t you agree? These tasty little treats came to me one afternoon when I whipped out the mixing bowl and threw a few ingredients together without much of an idea in mind. I had recently watched an episode of The Great British … Continue reading Chocolate Almond Salted Caramel Thumbprint Cookies
This makes a great sauce option to drizzle over fresh and fluffy pancakes, to smear onto toasted bread, to stir into a yoghurt and granola bowl or to top and melt into a warm bowl of porridge.

Donuts fit the bill perfectly. Joking aside, I am super proud of these ‘un-bakes’ and I am not afraid to say so. I, … Continue reading Coconut and Cacao Donuts
These are the family favourite. Hands down. I know there’s a plethora of chocolate chip cookies out there, but this one never claims to be a chocolate chip cookie. Instead, it’s more robust, hearty and chunky. It uses chopped chocolate for a rugged cookie, and the oats add that comforting ‘homely’ familiarity to them. You … Continue reading Chocolate Chunk Oat Cookies
My oh my are we in for a treat today! My good friend over at BlueberrySmiles and I have finally gotten around to collaborating on a little guest post for you.

This recipe comes with a warning: once you start, you can’t stop. Have you made your own peanut butter? So many people, my former self included, are intimated by the process, fearing it to be far too complicated/time-consuming/difficult/easier to buy in the store. But I am here to change all that. Not only is it … Continue reading Chocolate Chai Peanut Butter
You can thank me later for this one. Indulgent, rich, gooey bites of chocolate-y goodness filled with crunch, chewy dried fruits and topped with a layer of cacao nibs, these are not for the faint-hearted.
