How to make steel cut oats with roasted banana, maple and cinnamon

Since discovering steel-cut oats in my supermarket recently, I have become obsessed. Oats or oatmeal as its known in American is one of healthiest breakfasts you can make. Loaded with nutrition and fibre, its worth putting this into your regular breakfast rotation. This recipe idea comes from a friend who Instagrammed her breakfast recently and she had me at roasted banana. The maple adds sweetness and the cinnamon adds spice turning your oats from ordinary to extraordinary. Continue Reading →

In an attempt to cling onto the last bit of summer I made this vibrant blueberry ice cream. The cinnamon is so mild you can hardly detect it, but its flavour somehow enhances the blueberry.

This week I was working on an apple TV shoot and I needed to make a variety of recipes which included apples. So thinking I would kill to birds with one stone so to speak, and to expand on my somewhat limited collection of muffin recipes on this blog, I decided to play around and do an apple and cinnamon one.

Its a classic combination of flavours that works so well and perfect for a breakfast, brunch or with an afternoon cup of tea. I added a hint of orange zest to liven it up.

What a year this has been, I have never worked as hard. I ran out of time and sort of ran out of Christmas so despite good intentions,  this is the closest I got to doing any seasonal recipes.

As summer explodes in Cape Town, so does my food styling work, and summer and Christmas generally mean a very busy time for me.

I have taken on a project cooking for a client over the holiday’s so I’m not sure how many posts I will be doing on my blog over the next few weeks. I do hope that wherever you are, whatever you do, and however you celebrate, you will have a restful and peaceful year-end holiday. Or even a short break.
