#2 – A Simplicious Challenge: The Battle with Laziness
#2 A Simplicious Challenge: The Battle with Laziness. I'm cooking all 306 recipes from Sarah Wilson's book #Simplicious, to see the impact it has on the way I buy, cook, consume and waste food.
Easy Apple and Hazelnut Frangipane Tarts
New recipe! Easy Apple and Hazelnut Frangipane Tarts. These are quick to make and use only a little rice malt syrup as a sweetener, so they are #IQS friendly. BUT they are rather moreish - and very much a treat! #dreamingofalmonds
Recipe: Toasted Oat, Hazelnut and Cacao Granola with Rosewater
New recipe on the blog! Toasted Oat, Hazelnut and Cacao Granola with Rosewater. The world doesn't really need another granola recipe. But I made this sweetener-free granola using what I had for the @eatdrinkblogau breakfast cereal photo comp, and enjoyed eating the end product so much I had to share anyway! Served here over Greek yoghurt with pomegranates, mint and an extra drizzle of rosewater.
#1 – A Simplicious Challenge: Cooking 306 Recipes
My first recipe from #simplicious: Pretty Spring Risotto with Powerhouse Dressing, a gorgeous vegetarian lunch that packs a nutritional punch. It kicks off the start to a new challenge - to cook all 306 recipes from the book, 'Julie and Julia' style. Offal and all. I'm doing this because I want to push the boundaries of the way I buy, cook, consume (and waste) food, for myself and my family. I'm intrigued to see how it will affect the way we live.

Recipe: Jaffa Overnight Oat Breakfast Pots
New recipe on the blog: Jaffa Overnight Oat Breakfast Pots! I was recently invited by @iquitsugar to participate in a promotion for @pureharvest, to 'road-test' a mystery product - I received almond milk, and loved coming up with this healthy vegan breakfast take on the classic chocolate and orange combo. The link is in my profile. #dreamingofalmonds
