I’m a BIG breakfast fan. As an early riser I seriously enjoy preparing myself a strong cup of tea and a healthy and delicious breaky to fuel my day. My favourite dishes include either eggs or a fruit, yoghurt and nut combo.

Sweet, savoury, healthy or indulgent. Be sure to start the day with your favourite flavours using one of my easy recipes.

With the realisation that in approximately 40 days I’ll be indulging in quite a lot of the darkest chocolate I can find I decided to make a healthier pancake to celebrate today.

It’s unthinkable, of course, to go without. I’m a 21st century woman after all – yes I can have my (pan)cake and eat it too! Thank you very much.

I just have to be clever about it. (more…)

I’ve been inspired recently by a wonderful blog called Simply Breakfast. I think the concept is so clever and the name says it all, but here’s the really clever bit – there’s no copy. No description, nothing. Genius! You’d think it would be boring to look at one person’s breakfast everyday, but it isn’t. It’s really really intriguing. Especially for a sticky beak like me.

Well, there are few small catches that set it apart. Firstly, Jennifer is an accomplished photographer and has several other websites that showcase her work (not only of food) and secondly, the variety of different breakfasts is astonishing. The combinations coupled with the creative styling and fab photography make it a daily visit for me. (more…)
