Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

I have mentioned before that quinoa is not one of my most favourite ingredients but when I saw the recipe on What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today for this Quinoa Breakfast Bowl I was so intrigued that I had to make it and try it out. And I was pleasantly surprised. I think using quinoa as a breakfast “cereal” really works. But then I don’t eat breakfast anymore so this was more of a sweetish late lunch for me. I…

Fruit Galette

With summer in full swing, indulging in the sumer fruit bounty is an absolute joy. Beautiful stone fruit, colourful berries and that all too short season of cherries abound at markets, supermarkets and street vendors. This Fruit Galette hopes to capture all that summer in a delicious mouthful. I’ve been trying to make the most of the season and in between all the eating have been freezing piles of fruit. My favourite has been to freeze cherries and enjoying them…

Festive Frangipane

This delicious Boozy Festive Frangipane looks rather homely and innocent but is rich, decadent, so comforting and is my modern take on the usual fruited Xmas pudding. It has a layer of rich almond frangipane, topped with fruit that were soaked in brandy and coffee liqueur and baked with some fresh apple and berries, then topped with an almond crumble and baked again. I saw a version of this pudding made with autumn fruit in the October issue of Delicious…

But before I chat some more about the cake I wanted to present my two new stop motion videos. For these videos I collaborated with the super talented Claire Ferrandi who did the styling and Eden Weiss who did the editing. I am used to doing all the cooking and styling…

I had no intention of doing a Valentine’s Day post but as I played with styling the “mess” it just read “Valentine’s Day” to me. So here is my interpretation of that classic English dessert which came in to being over Xmas after I had no inclination of baking meringues or going from shop to shop to find any. Whipped up in minutes, it is decadent without being overly rich and sweet and will satisfy most tastes on any day…

After the Lemon Meringue post I have to do (some) repentance and I can’t think of anything healthier to get the New Year started than this smoothie. This makes for an easy on the go breakfast or light lunch to keep the calories in check as we try to even out December’s deliciousness. They say almonds are “better” than peanuts so you could perhaps replace the peanut butter with almond butter but I think the peanut butter flavour works quite well with…
