coconut brown rice pudding with salted coconut caramel

I’m always on the look out for a dessert that will make my boys feel like I’m indulging them but is healthy enough to dish out midweek on a regular basis. And, I’m sure you know by now that I’m also always looking for ways to make a recipe quicker and more delicious so that

buckwheat bread

buckwheat, coconut and spelt soda bread

Let me start by saying that this buckwheat bread doesn’t taste of coconut. Nor was it born out of any dietary needs. It is delicious and easy and has the rare quality of tasting gorgeous whilst also tasting really healthy. It was, as many of my best discoveries are, a result of me having a

I love a good Royal Wedding and the upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are no exception. Pulling together the best bits of California and Britain is something I’m pretty adept at, so to help you celebrate the big day, I’ve created a party menu with recipes that bring together the best of

flapjacks

flapjacks – the perfect treat for busy bees

In a world full of Instagramable baking (don’t get me started on unicorn cronuts), old school flapjacks can get a bit left behind. They have been knocked out of the way by granola bars and the recipes have been the subject of a lot of fiddling, ingredients wise, these last few years. There are so

curry with spiced squished potatoes

Curry is my comfort food and this curry with spiced squished potatoes is perfect for when I have a curry craving. Being back in England, with so many great Indian restaurants means I don’t have to cook to have a great curry. But making your own is always a healthier option and costs much less

5 minute almond butter satay vegetable noodle bowl

This 5 minute almond butter satay vegetable noodle bowl recipe came about when I was staring into the cupboard with a rumbling tummy and two starving children. It is amazing how creative you can be with what you have when the thought of going to the supermarket with two toddlers is the alternative. I’m allergic

This recipe for a 15 minute Thai basil stir fry is one I’ve taught in my classes for a few years and it never fails to get people excited. In fact, I love this recipe so much I’ve made a video of me making it, showing you all the tips and tricks so you can cook

grain packed healthy pancakes

grain packed healthy pancakes

Ask my American born 4 year old what he wants for breakfast and before you’ve even finished the question he’ll have told you. Pancakes. Always pancakes. I can’t always find the time in the morning to indulge him but when I do, these are the grain packed healthy pancakes I make. These are far from

When you learn how easy it is to whip up a batch of this gem’s gorgeous granola you’ll be a convert. This version is much lower in sugar and oil than many store bought varieties and is full of nutritious ingredients. It is also about a quarter of the price of shop-bought granola. And everyone

thai carrot and sweet potato soup

Thai carrot and sweet potato soup with basil and avocado

Most Sundays I make a ‘clear the fridge’ soup. I don’t follow a recipe but I use it as an excuse to empty my fridge, give it a good wipe and make something from the odds and ends that are in there. I love making soup on a Sunday because it means I have a

crispy date and chocolate bars

crispy date and chocolate bars

This is another of my mum’s recipes that I’ve tinkered with a little. These crispy date and chocolate bars – or ‘date slices’ as they were known in our family are easy and delicious. They are perfect for lunchboxes, picnics or after-school snacks. They require very little actual cooking and are a great thing to

dairy and sugar free salted caramel chocolates – practically a health food

I love salted caramels. I’m all about balancing flavours and the combination of sea salt and caramel with bitter dark chocolate is perfection in my eyes. But I don’t feel great when I eat too much dairy or sugar so they are an occasional treat. So when I saw a version of this sugar and

buckwheat porridge

buckwheat porridge with dates, almonds and apple

Our house practically runs on oats. Sometimes I feel like the cashier at our local Whole Foods must think I have a pet horse for all the oats I buy from the bulk bins. I usually cook a batch of oats with water and flax seeds twice a week so that we can just grab

a gluten and dairy-free chocolate cookie you can eat for breakfast

In a world of no consequences I would eat a chocolate chip cookie every day. But boringly, as I keep telling my boys, there are consequences. So I try and bring some balance and find new ways to get my and their chocolate hit. These dairy free chocolate cookies hit the spot every time. I

date shake

Palm Springs date, almond, banana shake

The date shake I had at The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs has been on my mind since I got back. Date shakes are one of the must-haves when you visit Palm Springs.  Many of them are pretty unhealthy though and rely on ice cream and milk to give substance. I found them a bit

flapjacks for lunchboxes, teatime and road trips

I love a good flapjack. We never left home for a holiday when I was little without a tin of flapjacks and shortbread.  Long before granola bars had ever been thought of, these were what my Mum packed for us. Like granola bars, they are a real treat but give you a bit of a

Midweek eats Porridge, or oatmeal, is a pretty much daily breakfast in our house. I make mine with thick rolled oats and flaxseed cooked just with water then finished with a mound of yoghurt and fruit. The baked oats with berries and banana recipe that follows would be a good one to make on a
