Anyone with kids knows that there are times when you feel like you are asking all the time: What am I going to feed them?! The cycle of breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner seems to roll around all too quickly leaving you either feeling like a champion or like you are failing…
Who wouldn’t want to wake up to a fresh bowl of Bircher Muesli? The combination of oats soaked overnight mixed into freshly grated apple, yoghurt, seeds topped with fresh berries and toasted almonds. Yum!
This feta and roasted sweet potato bruschetta mix is delicious as a topping on crunchy bread or perfect as a tasty accompaniment for grilled meats.
Everyone loves a good Aussie Pavlova or Pav as we affectionately refer to it. Topped with fresh cream and fresh fruit it’s a winner.
Asian noodle salad makes an appearance at our Christmas table every year and goes so well with a baked ham or roast poultry. When cabbage is a part of our organics box for the week I make it mid-year too.
Every two or three years this recipe features on our Christmas table. For those celebrating Christmas during Summer, Christmas Ice Cream Pudding is a winner. It’s creamy, full of flavour and looks so festive. Variations for a sugar-free alternative are included.
Last year I made a sugar free Gingerbread for a festive option for afternoon tea, but this year I just wasn’t feeling it. Being somewhat of a bliss ball fanatic I played around in the kitchen a little and came up with these. All the taste of Christmas without the refined sugar and extra carbs.
Caramelised onion is a favourite for cheese platters, salads, toasties and a myriad of other things. Homemade Christmas gifts are always a nice surprise, caramelised onion works well given in a cute little jar.
There is something irresistible about coffee desserts. Traditional tirimisu has to be one of the best. Best assembled a day or so ahead to allow the flavours to infuse, tirimisu is a great option for dinner parties or Christmas Day. Nothing to do on the day except enjoy.
Vanilla Ricotta on Fruit & Nut Sourdough is a go-to breakfast recipe for me when we have people over for breakfast in the warmer months. Simple, fresh and delicious and the ricotta mix can be made ahead- brilliant.
This simple topping for toasted bread sings of lazy summer afternoons. Traditional tomato and basil bruschetta is always a hit at any gathering or works wonderfully as a topping for grilled meat.
Here are some of the best Christmas recipes I’ve discovered over the years.
