This delicious, fragrant high fibre cake, is full of nutritional goodness. Many do not like pumpkin as a vegetable, but this cake is my attempt to prove to you that everybody really does like pumpkin, as long as they don’t know they are eating it!Read More

I created this recipe to give people an alternative to using butter and sugar in baking.

It was my mother who first introduced me to chocolate cake – much to my school friend’s envy, as she baked them for school lunch boxes, afternoon tea and birthday parties. She was also the first to introduce me to ‘real’ beetroot, the wholefood you harvest out of the ground and cook yourself, rather than the sweetened slices you buy in a can. Turns out chocolate and beetroot are a really good match in a cake. Be warned though you will end up with lolly-pink stained fingers making this cake!Read More

It is a meal in a bowl I often cook for those who need healing, particularly when they don’t feel like eating. Bringing warmth, comfort and nutrition, it is an immune boosting meal that is easy on the digestive system.Read More
