Easy banana bread

I have a confession. I’m a dessert addict. Which means I’m always on the prowl for healthy(ish) sweets that I can devour without guilt. And if they’re easy to make, it’s a big bonus. This banana bread recipe is made with coconut oil instead of butter. It’s also a one bowl recipe. So, win-win? Ripe bananas, a smattering of salt, a…




Grilled corn with Parmesan and coriander

Here’s a well known fact: blogging is a full time job. It’s no longer enough to simply create beautiful content. Networking seems to be an important, if not integral aspect of blogging.

Yes, I was that kid. During sleepovers, my sister, cousin (not cool either, by association)…




Apple pie spiced porridge

Before I moved to the UK, I used to despise porridge with a passion. Gloopy, boring, cloyingly sweet – ugh.
