Citrus-y pear, nuts ‘n’ dark chocolate

P1080237

I had dinner last week with mama Jan and sister E and this appeared on the menu. Didn’t know what to make for dessert at first but as I was walking down the fruit aisle in the supermarché, I saw these curvy chics, one thing led to another and we were all covered in chocolate ;-). Pear and chocolate is a match made in heaven and sprinkling some caramelised nuts into the mix just makes for an awesome trio. It’s vegan, it’s healthy (welllllllll yeah because chocolate is totally good for you in all sorts of ways 🙂 ), it’s indulgent and it’s delish! Give it a go…. Continue reading

Seeded banana pancakes (gluten free)

He could only eat gluten-free foods, no sugar, some fruits but not all, a lil’ bit of this ‘n’ a lil’ bit of that and I was EXCITED!!. I like having weird requests like this.

(as if it was my first time), I’m gonna make it myself thank you very much. Continue reading

Chunky Crunchy pear et chocolate and more chocolate drizzle

Can you say the name of this recipe fast? hehehe :-).

Ok so cherries are dominating the markets at the moment and I wanted to bid farewell to the pear and remembered this recipe that I conjured up in the winter sometime before Christmas last year. The pears come out looking as beautiful as ever in this dessert and I am sure everyone at your table will be surprised as I was when I put it together. Pears are normally perfect the way they are but I felt they didn’t mind being dressed up with nuts and chocolate. Would you? Continue reading
