As I get that little bit colder, I find myself craving familiar yet exciting flavours. Like blood oranges in every which way. I am talking blueberry and blood orange smoothies, red blood orange and polenta upside down cake, donuts with blood orange glaze etc.
Here is a Christmas breakfast idea : baked pancake with maple bacon, walnuts and cranberries. I got your back.
I have been craving Christmas cookies so I have been baking these easy peasy orange and cranberry thumbprint cookies.
These cashew stresuel topped granola muffins are like the hellooooooooooooo where have you been all my life breakfast muffins. They are the ‘why did I not make more of these sooner as they make getting out of bed easier’ kind of muffins.
Introducing you to my orange and shaved cauliflower salad with an orange tahini dressing. I love love love the soft crunchiness of the cauliflower along with the walnuts. And if like me you have pomegranate seeds as a pantry staple, you would add them to everything including this salad right?
There is comfort food and then there is COMFORT food. And these orange mushrooms served over orange flavoured polenta is definitely in the COMFORT food category.
Can I share my spring onion and bacon cornbread, made with home grown spring onions and the very tasty British smoked back bacon from spoiltpig. So good that I even made a quick video about it. What do you think?
This olive oil, cardamom and blood orange polenta cake is one of the easiest cakes to make and even easier to decorate as the blood orange slices do all the work for you. Filled with some great flavours this cake is gorgeous.
During the winter, porridge is a breakfast favourite around here. There is nothing like the feeling, when you have to go out into the cold all morning, of being full of substantial, high GI food.
One of the many joys of winter is the abundance of citrus fruits. Lovely, bright, colourful, sweet, tart, gorgeous fruit. Piles and piles of them just waiting to be eaten straight up, juiced and even roasted.
