During the summer, my herb garden is ridiculous. I have over 20 different varieties which I prune and harvest from constantly. Some examples are lemon basil, lime basil, cinnamon basil, blue spice basil, silver thyme, orange thyme, Greek oregano, chives, society garlic, tarragon, flat leaf and curly parsley, and dill. (I know, I'm just showing off at this point.) But seriously, having all of these fresh herbs is the best. Especially if you love to cook, like me! Now when it comes to fresh herbs, there are many different ways to enjoy them. I find that one of the most *effective* ways is by making a flavorful pesto, using a very large amount of fresh herbs that are pulverized into a paste releasing all of their flavors. Blanched almonds provide the perfect texture and mild flavor for the herbs to hang out with while fresh lemon juice and miso intensifies the situation in the best way possible. As for the vegetables, I used sugar snap peas, English peas, and fava beans that were blanched. You can honestly use anything you'd fancy. I quite like the ear-shaped orecchiette pasta as it's incredibly satisfying to eat. Once again, this recipe is available on my blog, and linked up in the Epicurious bio. If you do make this or any of my recipes for that matter, please let me know and tag me in the picture. I'd love to see the results. Well, that concludes my takeover. Thank you for having me. This was fun. Sending all of you love and delicious food. -
Chilled and Tasty getaway at @l_ane_vert.
I forgot to take pictures of many meals there because I was so impatient to eat them 🙈but @l_ane_vert
has a different menu every breakfast and dinner, with pretty creative dishes usually inspired by the moroccan cuisine.
Always happy to stay here for the sun, the empty beach, the vibes, and the great food ! -

First time buying Filipino food and I ordered rice with chicken adobo😍❤️ The Kabayan restaurant also doubles as an oriental market.

Did someone say CARROT CAKE? 🥕 Carrot cake overnight oats = dessert for breakfast win 💯
In our house, overnight oats are the perfect solution for a quick breakfast. Prep them the night before, stir in the morning, and add toppings as desired 💗 Also, toasting coconut flakes is a game changer! 🙌🏼 Heat a skillet over medium low and add some coconut flakes. Stir till golden. Brings out the flavor and adds crunch 🤤 Hope you guys have a wonderful Friday! 😘
How to 👉🏼 The night before, combine:
• 1/2 C @woodstockfoods
Irish style oats
• 1 C almond milk (used my @elliesbest
• 1/3 C grated carrot 🥕 • 1 tsp @betterbodyfoods
• 2 tsp maple syrup • Dash of cinnamon and nutmeg
Stir in the morning. Topped with banana slices + an @emmysorganics
Vanilla Bean cookie + a chopped Medjool date + toasted @bobsredmill
coconut flakes 🤗
My mother isn't really a big fan of chocolate (weird, right? I can't go a day without having some chocolate derivative one way or another) so I made the cake with only 2 tbsp of cocoa powder. I must admit, when cocoa is added in little amounts, it tastes substantially better than when there's too much. I do make up for that by adding a rich chocolate ganache on top. But this time, it's not only chocolate but something else as well
Happy Friday folks 🍾
My daily dose of greens with a side of eggs and cheese. 👌🏻
For the foodies here: I somehow always struggle to take ‚nice‘ photos of savory food. I never quite like them as much as my ‚sweet‘ photos. Any advice?
Strawberry daiquiri or piña colada ?
There is nothing better than sitting by a window on a mellow morning, summer warming your bones as you scoop 2nd breakfast🌞
Rich Raspberry Vanilla Cheesecake 🍰❤🍦⠀⠀
Ahhh there’s not a whole lot I don’t like about cheese cake, except for what it does to your body, digestion, and waistline … but this recipe is another healthy dessert or sweet treat made with nourishing ingredients that are actually good for you! This recipe is also sugar free and has no added sweeteners (not even rice malt or maple syrup!) so you can enjoy this gorgeous dessert without guilt. It’s simple to make and will impress the pants off all your friends at your next dinner party. 👌😁⠀⠀
Just 1 cup of raspberries contains 8g of fiber (!), that’s almost a third of the fiber most of us need for an entire day. They’re also lower sugar than most fruits, which can be a great choice for anyone watching their blood sugars like diabetics or simply those on a fat loss diet. Importantly, they are one of the fruits with the lowest fructose content and are therefore less likely to ferment in the large intestine. 👏⠀⠀
Makes: 1 cake (number of serving depends on desired slice size … which can vary 😏 ) ⠀⠀
Time taken: 15 mins to prepare, 6 hours to set⠀⠀
Nourishing Ingredients 👇⠀⠀
• 1/2 cup soaked Macadamias (soaked for at least 4 hours in filtered water)⠀⠀
• 1/4 cup pesticide-free Almonds (soaked for at least 6 hours)⠀⠀
• 1/2 cup organic Shredded Coconut • 1 tbsp Chia Seeds (I use white to maintain the colour but either will do) • 1 tsp Vanilla Powder • 2 tbsp organic Virgin Coconut Oil, melted⠀⠀
Cheesecake Filling 👇⠀⠀
• 1 cup soaked Macadamias⠀⠀
• 4 tbsp Whipped Coconut Cream (that has been left in the fridge to harden)⠀⠀
• 1 cup washed organic raspberries⠀⠀
• 1 tbsp freshly squeezed Lemon juice⠀⠀
• 3 tbsp organic Coconut Oil, melted⠀⠀
• 1/2 tsp Vanilla Powder ⠀⠀

’s vegan cheesecake base to make this cookies and cream cheesecake slice — dark chocolate mocha biscuit base, vanilla cheesecake filling filled with crushed chocolate cookies. cuts through mousselike and butter-soft with the tines of a fork. ridiculously decadent, all crunchy chocolate clamour and dashing ivory cream, richer than an oligarch with their hands in a till.
