Homemade thyme flatbreads

I wanted to make a new recipe for flatbread with figs & goat cheese, and instead of buying the breads I decided to try and make them myself. I never in a million years expected it to be THIS easy but it really was! I based my recipe on one from Jamie Oliver - my food hero - and turned them into thyme flatbreads as they went better with my…

Nutella & Walnut Filo Cigars

Today's recipe is without a doubt going to be a big hit at any party: Nutella & walnut filo cigars! Crunchy pastry, delicious chocolate core and that little bit of an extra bite thanks to the walnuts. It's somewhat easy to make too and doesn't take a whole lot of time either, but you do have to keep in mind that filo pastry is very thin and very fragile.…

Whipped feta shortcrust tartlets with strawberry & pistachio

It's hard to believe it's almost Christmas as it's currently 30°C outside here in Melbourne.

I made these when I got invited to dinner over at my cousin's place and used some dough that I had left over from another tartlet recipe that I've made (but haven't posted yet). It's actually quite easy to make, the only tricky thing is trying to…

Parmesan fish & chips

This recipe has been created in support of #cheesecopenhagen taking place this weekend as part of the European Milk Forum’s 2019 Cheese Culture campaign which is being implemented locally in Ireland by the National Dairy Council to encourage Irish consumers to eat more quality cheese from Europe. #cheeseyourway Growing up in Belgium, I was introduced to European cheeses from a very early age as we are quite the cheese eaters. Emmental,…

These low sugar chocolate brownies are the perfect weekend treat

This blog post is sponsored by Mondelez- Cadbury. As always, all opinions are my own. Everyone in my family has an unbelievable sweet tooth and resisting sweet treats – especially chocolate – is not something any of us are good at. So, when I decided to cut back on some things (salt and sugar mainly) to improve my health and have a more balanced lifestyle, I found that cutting back on…
