One of my aims in life is to create recipes that taste amazing and help you feel amazing! Believe me, this chocolate tart does exactly that. It is raw, dairy-free and oh-so delicious. The only sweetness comes from fresh dates and honey. The base tastes similar to ferrero rocher, whilst the filling tastes like chocolate pudding! In my earlier post, I talked about why cacao powder was so amazing – it works really well in this recipe as it provides the rich chocolatey flavour in both the filling and the crust.
I love Spring. Honestly, I think it may be my favourite season! I love that the weather gets warmer and the dreary winter skies turn a brilliant blue. I also love the abundance of fresh fruit and berries that come with this time of year. I don’t know why, but I tend to crave cheese and stodgy food in winter. But in the spring I crave strawberries, grapes, blueberries, apples, melon and yoghurt. I thought I would post some snack inspiration today. I have recently discovered apple and almond butter – I am obsessed with this snack and can’t believe I never had it before!

I am a new(ish) vegetarian. I celebrated one year meat free this Easter. This is one of my favourite veggie dishes. I pretty much lived on this for most of last winter! I think it is one of the most comforting, warming dishes. The trick is to roast the butternut squash with some garlic and sage, it really provides an amazing depth of flavour. The porcini powder adds an incredible savoury umami flavour!
I am trying to set myself regular photography projects. This weekend my project was to create a photo-journey of Brighton and Hove. I walked along Hove seafront to Brighton and basically snapped anything I found interesting. It was a great chance to use my new camera and it made me really take a good look at my surroundings. It was such a beautiful day and it felt lovely to be walking around in the sunshine after what feels like months of winter!
This afternoon I had a hankering for something sweet. I don’t always make desserts, but today was definitely a dessert day! Unfortunately there was nothing I could shovel straight into my mouth to satisfy my sweet cravings, so I decided to cobble something together.
