Who can resist a pillowy, chewy homemade crumpet? Especially if it's made healthier with wholegrain rye flour and a touch of Manuka honey? A perfect breakfast or anytime treat.

A commissioned recipe Who can resist a pillowy, chewy homemade crumpet? Especially if it’s made healthier with wholegrain rye flour and a touch of Manuka honey? A perfect breakfast or anytime treat.  As an American growing up in the 70s a big treat for my sister and me would be to have a tea party. …

Your favourite quick meal plus your favourite new ingredient in one quick, easy vegetarian meal. Perfect for a midweek dinner with salad and avocado slices - or guacamole.

I almost had to laugh when Katie asked me to do a guest post on my best mid-week meal preparation tips. I don’t consider myself much of a meal planner; my brain is too scatter-shot and my tastes too immediate to be a true planner. I am also a contrarian. Give me a list and …

What do you do when you crave nachos AND a Greek salad? Make this crunchy plate of tangy Greek salad vegetables over crispy pitta chips, that’s what. Have as a solo lunch or shared snack.  These past few weeks have seen me playing about with recipes for an upcoming eBook. I’ve never done an eBook (have you? Is it …

Scandinavian crispbreads made with minimal flour, some salt, oil, water and sesame, flax, poppy and sunflower seeds (and a few aromatic ones too) are a crunchy, delicate platform for butter, cheese, pickled herring and anything at all savoury. They are superb crunchy accompaniment to soup, too. Versions of knækbrød are eaten all over Denmark, Sweden and Norway and considered essential foods. High in protein, healthy fats and fiber, these are a near-perfect snack.

Two vegan dips and fresh crunchy vegetables to welcome spring.

A raw vegetable platter is my excuse for indulging in some creamy, zingy, quickly-made dips. Of course there are pitta chips, but mainly it is about – at least today – the freshest veggies I can get my greedy hands on. I procured most of my produce from a local organic shop, but I am …

Health-enhancing ingredients mixed into a no-bake granola bar. Perfect for healthy snacking and lunch boxes. Vegan and easily gluten-free.

Marrying health with not only taste but ease and interest is something I aim for – most days. I’ve got better at it over the years, I think. Not only in my day-to-day cooking adventures but in recipe development for work, brands and here on my tiny slice of cyberspace. As we all seem to be …

If you can eat a whole bag of heart-stoppingly expensive vegan “cheese” kale chips without pausing for sharing, or breathe, this is the recipe for you. Add in the fact that it is a bit spicy, a bit “ranchy” (which my MacBook desperately wants to be “raunchy”) and we have a serious contender for favourite snack ever. Raw-ish, …

This is a recipe I came up with after having seen a few cheese-based fries recipes floating about the Internet and in magazines. Most such recipes look really delicious – Stretch Armstrong-gooey or soft explosions in the mouth. Oh my! But sadly, the deal-breaker for me is that they are fried. Which I guess is to be expected when …
