Chocolate, Coconut and Banana Muffins

I attempted to make gnocchi two weekends ago with the help and patience of Doug.  I love  gnocchi! Beautiful soft, pillows of joy either pan fried or coated in a slow cooked ragu or light sauce.  I am salivating just thinking about it!  I have always wanted to make gnocchi so I gave it ago.

Chewy Oat and Date Granola Bars

I was on a mission last weekend to find a healthy oat and date biscuit recipe so during the week I can have a delicious treat with my afternoon tea without all the processed sugars, flours and preservatives.  I looked through all my recipes books, scanned Pinterest and explored so many food blogs but couldn’t find what I wanted.  However, I did find this granola-type bar recipe that sounded so delicious and had the same flavours I was looking for.

Coconut Oats with Grilled Peaches

Wendy’s Coconut Cake

While I am tearing up the slopes in the French Alps, I have planned a great post for you guys.  Wendy’s Coconut Cake is an absolute treat!  Wendy is a good friend of mines mom and he used to bring one back after the university holidays.

Unfortunately for him, he landed up sharing the cake with me and the girls I lived with every time and although I have never met his mom, this cake is enough to know that she is pretty awesome.   Continue reading “Wendy’s Coconut Cake”
