You might notice the background for my food photography has changed – I’m no longer in my beautiful Berlin apartment, I’ve moved to a lovely house in Melbourne, so welcome to my new (old) kitchen! It’s not been renovated since the 70’s I think. It’s cute.

The first time I made these burritos was one dinner in winter last year and my boyfriend arrived home from work just as they were ready. He was starving and just wanted food, and when I served these to him he straight away said “This is the best thing you’ve ever made, I love you”. Plus a few moans of happiness as he ate.

So, let that be proof enough of how delicious these burritos are! Try making them with the easy recipe below. Your significant others will love you for it! Also a fun dish to make with kiddies, set them up wrapping burritos or spreading cottage cheese on the inside – keeps them busy and helps you get the food made faster!

Energising Kiwi + Tea Muesli

Are you needing some breakfast inspiration? You’ve come to the right place. Are you looking for a healthy, energising muesli recipe? Read on!

I know, you’ve seen “tea” in the title and you’re wondering if and why I would put it in my breakfast, and not simply drink a cup of tea and eat normal muesli. Well for one, how boring would that be, to be normal? And two, this isn’t just any tea, it’s Bluebird Teaco Bears Like Marmalade Tea!

By mixing the acidity and sweetness of Kiwi fruit with the hearty, richer flavours of the marmalade tea, we find a beautiful harmony of flavours and sensations on the tongue! Plus, we all know and love marmalade on toast for breakfast, so why not switch it up, keep your favourite breakfast flavour, but try it in a different dish!

Let’s get cooking!

Vegan Zucchini Spaghetti with Homemade Tomato Sauce (without Spiral Slicer)

Try out this healthy, low-calorie & gluten-free vegan Zucchini Spaghetti with homemade Tomato Sauce WITHOUT using a Spiral Slicer.

A Spiral Slicer is something we don’t all have in our kitchens, especially if you have no money like me and own zero kitchen utensils/ products – you just use what your housemates have. (I know, “omg the food blogger and recipe developer has no kitchen things” I’m just proving to you that ANYONE can cook delicious and healthy food, with literally nothing). So I decided I’d try and mimic what the spiral slicer does, just by using a sharp knife.

Also like many of you will experience, I have realised I have a small issue with gluten, so pasta dishes are now a little difficult for my little belly to handle. I was fine with gluten until one day, bam… My belly was the size of the moon. Major bloating is never fun, so I thought, I’m going to try zucchini pasta!

So here we go, see below for how I cut my zucchini and how I make my usual Italian inspired, homemade tomato pasta sauce.
