    Make Spiced Poached Pear Oats

    Today’s recipe is how to make Spiced Poached Pear Oats, a gluten-free deliciously comforting breakfast, using pears, mixed spices, oats, butter and almond milk.   If you know me, you know I love to make pretty breakfasts. I believe that we eat with our eyes, so it is important to always make sure that the food that we are making for our family not only looks delicious but tastes delicious too. Oats have a rep for being bland, mushy and kind of gross, but that’s just because sometimes they are boiled too long, or they just aren’t treated with much love. My Tips for Making Oats Don’t cook your oats in…

    Where to Eat around Sedgefield

    Today’s blog post focuses specifically on where to eat around Sedgefield and surrounding areas. I am lucky enough to have spent a few weekends and holidays in Sedgefield over the last five years. This place has gone from being a town I had never heard of, to one of my favourite places to visit. Situated between Knysna and George, Sedgefield is a seaside village that is surrounded by lakes and sand dunes and covered in beautiful fynbos and other colourful plants. Everyone always raves about Cape Town, but I really think Knysna, Sedge and Wilderness are some of the most beautiful places you could ever visit in SA. I plan…

    Gluten-Free Cinnamon & Sugar Doughnuts

    Yes, you read that right-  a recipe to make Gluten-Free Cinnamon & Sugar Doughnuts. Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s possible, because I have used coconut flour instead! ❄ Today’s Christmas recipe is a yummy snack or dessert table idea for your upcoming Christmas party. What’s the secret to Gluten-Free Doughnuts? Traditionally, doughnuts are deep-fried and they absorb a lot of cooking oil in the cooking process. In addition, many bakeries cook their doughnuts in shortening, a fat often loaded with trans-fats. The solution – delicious baked doughnuts that are cooked in the oven with just a little bit of coconut oil and no added dairy. It is…
