Butter-free banana, apple and walnut bread (no ‘fun’ doesn’t mean no taste…)

A healthier way is possible Banana bread has to be the most versatile and universally well-loved recipe ever. Every week, I’ll come across someone posting their take on a banana bread recipe.

Bulgar wheat salad with roasted veg in paprika

What’s better than a baked butternut squash? One that’s smothered in raclette cheese…

Hola y adiós! I’m flying off to Barcelona today for a few days for work. In all honesty, I’ve been a bundle of nerves these last few weeks getting ready for this conference, and while it’s like my umpteenth time working there, the stress never gets easier.

Vegetarian delights: A savoury fried (white) carrot cake from South-east Asia (chai tow kway)
