Tex-Mex Breakfast Tortilla Cups

Remember the Tortilla Scoops with Spicy Nectarine Salsa we made as appetizers for my Pampered Chef party?  Well these are a breakfast version, inspired by the great deliciousness of baking tortillas in a muffin tin, filled with stuff.  I turned these into Tex-Mex breakfast nibbles, by stuffing them with spicy refried beans, sharp old cheddar, […]

Apple Cinnamon Mini Muffins (Vegan & Gluten-Free!)

Growing up, my Mum and I used to make muffins together. As the stories go, when I was really little (around 2 years old), she didn’t know what to do with me to keep me occupied all day. So we made muffins. I was small enough to sit under the counter without my head touching […]

Whole Wheat Crêpes with Collards and Cheddar

So earlier this week, I had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (just like Alexander).  I found out that I didn’t get into the school program I was hoping to start in September (boo!) so I needed consolation food.  And the answer?  Whole Wheat Crêpes with Collard Greens and Cheddar. You could even […]

Cashew Cream & Minty Hot Chocolate

I’ve just discovered something pretty cool.  Did you know you can make a non-dairy milk out of cashews? Yep, it’s amazing.  All you need are cashews and a blender!  If you’d like a sweet or flavoured milk you can pop in a couple of pitted dates and a teaspoon of vanilla paste or extract. I […]
