desserts

Today I’m writing from a sunny little nook in Wensleydale. Such a beautiful winters day here, still, sunny with the tiniest chill in the air, perfect. Coming back to here always provides a sense of peacefulness, which after the past few weeks I definitely need. I get to spend time with friends and family I haven’t seen in ages, try out some recipes I haven’t gotten around to yet and have different scenery to take some photos in. I might even get a moment to read my book near the fire :)

This wagon wheel idea came to me as soon as I saw Table of Plenty’s rice cakes. The shape and the colour just screamed ‘healthy wagon wheels’, and I was more than happy to do so, I knew they could only be delicious.

Super simple and full of great real ingredients they turned out better than I’d even expected. Plus they are oh so pretty. The rice cakes are crunchy and with a touch of sweetness plus they are >> wholegrain, gluten free, fructose friendly and all natural. They soften a bit if you leave the cashew and jam filling in there for a while, equally as yummy as when they are crunchy.

The perfect dish to enjoy during the depths of winter, depths meaning a low of 10 degrees here on the Gold Coast 😉

It still does feel actually cold sometimes though, and I’m going to make the most of it and enjoy all my favourite winter dishes and lots of hot drinks.

I made this crumble for Table of Plenty, their muesli was made for this. I love making my own muesli but it was so handy to have their box ready to go, particularly during uni when every hour in the kitchen makes me feel slightly guilty because I’m not studying, sigh #williteverbeover. I love the beautiful crunch from the nuts and seeds in this muesli and the warming vanilla scent, it pairs beautifully with the apples. Plus leftovers = the most amazing breakfast !

You’ll be able to find this recipe and a couple more (Dukkah Tempeh bowl and Healthy Wagon Wheels) in their Winter Warmers Ebook here, so exciting !

Oh it’s good to be back!!! I’m beyond happy to have time to blog again. Uni is done for the year and now the fun begins.


A little update on the Paradise Pantry for everyone… I was Flannerys Featured foodie for October >> I shared thoughts and facts about me and two recipes >> Choc, almond bars , Ultimate Chia Parfait 

And to top that, I was/am Loving Earths featured foodie for November. I’m still pinching myself because this was a huge goal for me and I’m so happy with the recipes that my brain came up with, and having myself and friends taste test I can guarantee they are delicious. They are all on the Loving Earth website >> Caramelised buckini popsicles, Cookie Slice, Choc, Mandarin tarts, Neapolitan Ice cream cake, Sunday Smoothie. Arghh, I love them all so much but in saying that the popsicles will be found 24/7 in my freezer this summer ☼

These bad boys are the most amazing cookies hands down. The perfect cookie I would go so far as to say. I’m pretty sure Blaze thinks so too, those eyes are hoping that it falls to the ground so he can gobble it up, even though I tell him that chocolate is bad for him. I nearly always enjoy these with a hot drink >> green tea, hot chocolate, chai, matcha to name a few. Brayden loves them with cold milk. He begs me to make them and I often surprise him with them.
