I've been making crunchy nut granola for a long time now, and over the years I think I have perfected the recipe we use. This granola is crunchy, with a hint of cinnamon and honey, and chockfull of nuts. We like it best served with a creamy and thick Greek or Bulgarian yoghurt, and we add ...

Homemade chicken soup -- deliciously healthy and healing
A few weeks ago I posted about Ava being sick, and about our 'sick day' family traditions. I loved reading about all of your families' sick-day traditions too, and I thought it was especially amazing to hear that most of us still remember being sick as a child ourselves. We seem to have such warm ...

Valentine's Cookies --Jammy Dodgers with Lovehearts!
Do you know what Jammy Dodgers are? Well I didn't until I moved to the UK, and they are too cute not to share. You can buy them in packages, but I loved the ideas of homemade ones. Basically they are a jam cookie sandwich, with a jewel like centre and a vanilla or shortbread ...

Roasted Cauliflower and Cumin Soup -- topped with Za'atar
Since the beginning of the year I have been on a bit of a health kick!  Nothing too drastic though... I just wanted to see how different I would feel if I held back on bread, cheese and wine for a while. Hilariously enough, at first it mostly made my grumpy, but in the last ...
