Rustic Banana Walnut Cake (Eggless)

This is a cake I've been making for many many years now and it never fails to get polished off in a day. It’s definitely not a perfect looking cake inside but has a rustic, homemade appearance with the baking soda and yoghurt combination making the edges and corners of the cake a slightly chewy darker brown.

Lightening-Quick Nutella Crunch Pudding

I came up with this quick and easy dessert after wracking my brains about what my 7-year old could make for a small cooking competition.

As a child I couldn’t stand any vegetables other than potatoes though my parents didn’t give me a choice! At the top of the list were green capsicum, broad beans, and beetroot. As I grow older, my palate has been changing with age, exposure and of course, interesting recipes that makes me look at vegetables I previously wouldn't touch with a bargepole,…

Easiest Fruit and Nut Granola (Low Fat, Oil Free)

  When one’s reached a point where they have to lose kilos in the double digits, food choices shrink considerably. Breakfasts have been consisting of fruit and sometimes porridge loaded with fruit, and egg whites but that gets a bit monotonous after a while. The kids and the hubby love their cornflakes and sugar loaded honey loops and other items with tons…
