SWEET STUFF: So. Camping. Fires. Braai-time. Whatever your setting – Marshmallows, Cadbury’s […]
I have the privilege of working with Eskort doing some food styling, photography, recipe testing & development as part of their bold, adventurous and uncomplicated cooking campaign! It’s really awesome experimenting and trying out all their different products. So here and there I will be posting some of the healthier recipe options on Whisking It! :)
The other day we were being load-shedded from 6 – 10am on a Saturday morning… So I went on my phone and checked the list, and low-and-behold there was one just down the road from us. Delta Cafe. So we decided to try it out. And it was AWESOME.
Having followed WhiskingIt and all it’s yummy recipes through my bestie Lexi I am so excited to have been invited to be part of this delicious blog! As Lexi has mentioned before I will be focusing on the sweeter side of life (deserts, pastries, cookies, donuts, brownies, tortes, pancakes, cakes, cupcakes…. we could be here all day), hopefully showing you that just because it’s sweet doesn’t mean it’s unhealthy!
One thing I LOVE, love love love is a good PIE. I love cottage pie, pastry pie, pot pie, fold-overs, tarts, pies that aren’t even really pies at all… And I swear, if you put your mind to it, you can spin any traditional favourite into a healthy dish. That’s what I tried here. Good old chicken pie turned SUPER >> a super-food pie!!
So, as you may have noticed my last 2 posts haven’t been paleo. I have indeed started introducing a couple of the healthy grains back into my lifestyle, partially because I saw a dietician that recommended having gluten-free oats, quinoa, wild/brown rice and some rye in order to help with some stomach issues I have been having… Anyhoo, oats are one of my favouritest things in the whole world. Adding stuff, experimenting with flavours, nuts, dark choc, fruits, spices. Mmmm.. Never ending possibilities!! This combination was kind of born out of one of those “what-can-I-do-with-these-2-sad-things-left-in-my-fridge” moments.
