Recipe: Baba Ghanoush

love eggplant. Whenever we go out for dinner I am always drawn to anything on the menu with eggplant in it, particularly if we’re eating japanese. However, I don’t have anywhere near the same success with it at home. In fact, I don’t cook with it all that often, because I’m sick of being somewhat disappointed with the results. If anyone has any suggestions for what I might be doing wrong I’d love to hear them!

Baba ghanoush however is a different story – this is almost impossible to get wrong, so I can get my eggplant hit at home in the form of a delicious dip – win!

Recipe: Chocolate Easter Egg Muffins

I decided to try something a little different this Easter and bake some easter eggs inside muffins – hoping it would result in an oozy, delicious centre to the muffins and it did not disappoint!

Recipe: Pomegranate and Cranberry Rice Salad

I first made a variation on this salad before Christmas, and when trying to decide what to make for lunch at work this week I thought I’d give this another go, with some changes like the addition of cranberries and pomegranate molasses. It worked out pretty well too – although it’s not the prettiest of salads to photograph, that’s for sure!

I’ve seen lots of recipes and photos of bliss balls (also known as raw cacao balls) on the internet and they intrigued me by how delicious they sound, whilst still being surprisingly healthy, so I decided to make some of my own. There are lots of variations out there so I cobbled a few together and used the ingredients that most appealed to me (and I happened to have on hand!)

Building a Smoothie

Now that I have a blender that actually, y’know, blends things, I’m back to making smoothies as my breakfast of choice most days. I love the variety and I’m always trying new combinations, but there is a rough recipe of sorts I use for all my smoothies that I thought I would share with you.
