Recipe: Maple Walnut Wings | #WingingIt

My maple walnut wings are really moreish, if I do say so myself! I didn’t add any spicy heat to them but chipotle or Tabasco would go well with them (and it’s easy enough to incorporate on your own).

Recipe: Coconut Oil, Chipotle and Sesame Wings | #WingingIt

My recipe for coconut oil, chipotle and sesame wings is totally about big flavour indulgence, but there’s an argument to categorise these wings as health food. Nutritious coconut oil is so much better for you than most other oils while superfood sesame seeds are an excellent source for manganese, copper, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fibre.

Hey folks. I’m reviving my Nachos of the Month series to share a recipe to accompany the launch of Manomasa’s Cantina Chips.

They go great with my Tabasco pecan crab dip too! Enjoy. Continue reading

Recipe: Half Dipped Madeleines

I hope you’ll like my ideas for super simple Half Dipped Madeleines. Continue reading

Recipe: Elvis Oats

As “blogger of the month” for Pip & Nut, I thought I’d come up with a few recipes using its creamy peanut butter. Here’s one for a hearty breakfast that I like to call Elvis Oats. You know about those peanut butter, banana, honey, and bacon sandwiches that Elvis Presley loved so much to eat, right? And I’m sure you’re aware of the sad tale of how the King of Rock ‘n Roll, died “on his throne”. If only Elvis had been a more regular guy, he might still have been rocking with us today. What if there had been a way for the king to have enjoyed his preferred royal dish while adding some much needed fibre to his diet? That’s where my recipe for Elvis Oats comes in. It’s a fibre-filled homage to Elvis’ favourite treat that’s delicious, a little bit indulgent and especially filling. Continue reading
