Our beautiful herb garden has really taken off which means we have more herbs than we need right now. After some research I decided to harvest some of the coriander and some of the parsley to make our own infused oil and butter.
I found this recipe on Wholefood Simply. Please check out the Wholefood Simply blog for more awesome recipes, it is one of my favourite food blogs.
My kids love sweet treats but I am not keen on giving them lollies so when I found this Jersey Caramel recipe I had to try it.
Here is what you need:
2 cups of desiccated coconut
12 Medjool dates
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
Deseed the dates and put everything in your food processor. Turn on high and watch. After a while the dates and coconut will combine.
Ever since I first tried CADA I have been obsessed by it. When my Mum gave me my food processor it was one of the first things I made.
Lately I have been obsessed by Coyo. Coyo is the most beautiful, creamy coconut yoghurt. If you love coconut, like me, then you really should indulge in some. It is quite expensive so it is definitely something I classify as an indulgence. Since I do not have a money tree, I have challenged myself to make the perfect, homemade alternative.
My first attempt was a massive fail. My second attempt (as pictured above) was just lovely. It really complemented my CADA. I look forward to tweaking it a little more because it isn’t far off. 🙂
Every now and then my boys say something beautiful and it just inspires me. It encourages me to keep on parenting the way Marty and I are.
I am in the kitchen preparing to cook and Jake just yelled out “Mum is there anything I can do to help? Do you need help?”
He is such a beautiful soul just like his Dad. Always happy to help when he can.
I am blessed and obviously doing something right =D
Tried my hand at Paleo inspired cooking tonight. I was going to make a spinach chicken dish but I had some super fresh baby bok choy in the fridge. It inspired me to try cauliflower rice and an Asian style stir fry with fresh garlic, ginger and a small amount of soy.
My little man was pinching the cauliflower rice before dinner was even on the plate. Massive success for my little family. 🙂
I think I will have to research the paleo diet more and learn more about what foods are paleo as well as what the portion size should be. 🙂
I am all set for getting my exercise on.
I have soft socks, barely worn shoes and exercise pants.
A cross trainer in a warm room.
So no excuses right? 😉
It is a lovely soft bread with an awesome crunchy crust. When my friend shared this no-knead bread recipe I was very curious so I clicked on the link and was delighted to see how easy it looked. It is seriously as simple as it looks and has no nasties in it. I seriously suggest trying it. Don’t be put off by the amount of time you wait before baking it; it is worth it. 🙂
If you do make it or have made it before, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
