Spinach & Cheese Vegan Fatayer

These are a staple within Middle Eastern culture but I’ve added my twist to it using gluten-free flour and vegan feta cheese for some of the filling. I made this using my own home made dough; it may seem intimidating for some people but I promise it is a lot easier than you might think. […]

Gingerbread Cookies

Cookie season is finally here and it’s wonderful but holiday baking can be difficult if you have a dietary restriction or if you are baking for someone who has one. Sometimes it’s a choice, and sometimes it isn’t! Either way, it’s always difficult to manoeuvre at parties when you don’t know what’s on the menu. If […]

Rocky-Road Flapjacks

I LOVE FLAPJACKS! I guess flapjacks can come across as a slightly less interesting treat. Are they a dessert? Are they a snack? I feel like they’re somewhere in between. Depending on how you make them they can look slightly bland and uninspiring, especially in the eyes of a food blogger who wants to create something visually stunning […]

Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

These gluten-free and plant-based sandwich cookies are glorious. While they’re gluten-free and butter-free, they still manage to have a buttery, melt-away, “short” quality to them. They’re the perfect treat to add to your cookie rotation, and can be switched up, filled with jam, peanut or almond butter, cookie butter, and so on. Something sweet, slightly […]

Quinoa Energy Bars

During the week I managed to spare some time and get into the kitchen to create an easy, delicious snack I can carry along with me when I’m feeling peckish and need an afternoon pick-me-up. It’s a no bake recipe and the perfect portable snack for picnics and family outings or in a carry-on lunch all […]

Mediterranean Date Halva

Nothing will make you love and appreciate a simple snack so much as a day of fasting. If I’m not having a busy week, I usually like fasting once or twice a week to reset my body and aid digestion; my skin feels better as a result and my energy levels stay pretty high. For […]

Mexican Herb Guacamole

This is one of my all time favourite side dishes, especially when you are short on time and want something both delicious and filling. It makes the perfect lunchbox, on-the-go small dish and goes well with sweet potatoes or just simply with your favourite tortilla chips. The lemon and olive oil bring out the richness […]

Bounty Chocolate

Times surely do change! If you were to hand me a Bounty Bar 10 years ago, I would have looked at you like you had just insulted my existence. I thought Bounty Bars were totally granny chocolates and anything with fruit in my food dictionary I despised; especially in my desserts! I don’t know when I came to […]

Mediterranean Roasted Potatoes

Potatoes are the perfect food for being creative with the spices you use, and it’s definitely my go-to side dish when I’m cooking a feast for family or friends. They’re hard to mess up and everyone seems to love them. This dish is infused with wonderful sweet chilli spices that aren’t too overpowering. The zaatar […]
