Kale, butternut squash, and sun-dried tomato frittata

What better way to brighten your day than with a bit of vibrant yummy cooking.

I am a huge advocate of the butternut squash, as you may have already read from other posts. Here I have used it alongside another autumnal vegetable, kale. I like to roast the butternut squash before I combine it with the rest of the ingredients, this intensifies the flavour. The best way of doing this is by slicing the squash in half and putting it straight in the oven.

I have transformed the summer time frittata into a warming, comforting dish. Enjoy. Continue reading “Kale, butternut squash, and sun-dried tomato frittata”

Walnut and maple syrup buckwheat pancakes

Sunday mornings are for pancakes. I love to spend the morning in the kitchen creating something new. This Sunday was no different and armed with some tasty Canadian maple syrup I came up with this recipe.

Thomas has just returned from a trip to Vancouver. He brought back with him a delicious array of maple syrup products and what better way to enjoy maple syrup than with pancakes.

Overnight oats and chia breakfast bowl

My Mum has taught me well, I am sure that you all have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Well, I couldn’t agree more. I cannot start my day without a good breakfast.

Last year when I was commuting to work I would prepare my breakfast the night before. This allowed me to save time in the mornings, I would mix almond milk to dried fruits and oats and then put it in the fridge. My breakfast would then be ready for me to take to the office the next morning. I always loved how the oats had absorbed the milk and the raisins had become plump and chewy.

I have since discovered chia seeds and realised how much better this recipe is with them. It is so quick and easy, and the next morning you have a delicious, filling and healthy breakfast.

No excuses, eat your breakfast. Continue reading “Overnight oats and chia breakfast bowl”
