Staying healthy in the colder months.

Sometimes, when it's cold and horrible outside, aka winter, you want to hibernate under the covers and do a Netflix marathon.

{Small Batch} Grain-Free Banana Walnut Muffins

grain-free flourless banana walnut chocolate muffins

Like every women deprived of refined sugar (it's been 2 weeks!), I found myself scouring the internet drooling over images of sugary doughnuts, stuffed with salted caramel, dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with unicorns and rainbows. Yeah. Fun stuff.

Then I found this recipe and was like ohmygodneedtotrythisrightnow *leaves work early and runs home to the oven.

The weather is absolutely horrible this week, so I spent some time on Pinterest, as you do, looking for inspiration to spruce up

Shredded Sprout Salad w/ hazelnuts & blue cheese dressing

If you have to know one thing about me, it is that I like sprouts. Or love them, really. I buy sprouts from when they start arriving in the supermarkets sometime in August, all through the holiday season (with bacon, yum) and up until

Duvet Day.

I've find myself dreaming of a duvet day this week. Big fluffy duvet wrapped around me, comfy pj's on, cashmere socks (I'm really dreaming now!) and a nice cup of tea. Perhaps reading a book (I'm currently reading this book- which is totally gripping) or gorging on my latest tv series obsession (The Killing, if you're asking). Only daring to get out of my warm little abode to sneak into the kitchen to make another cuppa or maybe bake a few chocolate chip cookies (always whilst wearing a blanket - cape style of course). That sounds sooo good right now. I even built myself a Pinterest board... If I can't live a duvet day in real life, I can at least look at pretty images that make me dream about one. Only fair right?

Fairy lights all year round.

In With The New.

It's the new year! Will you be adhering to the new year, new me concept? I do like this time of year as it allows everyone to put their life into perspective and set some new goals, big and small. Although I personnaly do that on a monthly basis already anyway. Still, 2015! I wish everyone a happy, fulfilling one!

I, like many, will resume the healthy eating thing I used to do before December rolled around, aka no chocolate at 10 am thank you very much. I will also bring my butt to the gym. Though mainly this year I want to work on being more positive, and not beating myself up over small things. Oh and also, I'd like to watch less YouTube video (please, I want my life back).

During the holidays I've been writing recipes I want to try out for the blog in the next few months and I'm excited! Hopefully some will turn out ok and I will be able to share them here. I've got a few soup recipes up my sleeves I'd like to share here too if that's ok. I've written four soup recipes in 2014 here, here, here and here. But a few more won't hurt right?

Oh I also want to say thank you to anyone that's stopped in these parts this past year. Thumb's up.

I've received plenty of cookbooks over Christmas, so you will find me in my natural habitat, yes you guessed it, the kitchen, a lot in January. Hopefully we will get a few sunny days where I can photograph some food whilst standing on my kitchen table. YOLO. So whiteout further ado, happy new year to all and all that jazz. Peace out.
