Spinach Muffins

We are back. After one week of snuggling/adoring/talking/singing/kissing/feeding/diaper-changing little Elsa we feel it is time to start spending some time in our Green Kitchen again. Fear not – all you loving mums and dads out there – we will not take our eyes off of her just yet.

They arrived from Australia a week ago and we have been flying the foodie flag with gusto, exploring the culinary delights of Los Angeles. In my humble opinion, no whole foodie tour of L.A would be complete without a visit to Real Food Daily. I was so proud as my ever-supportive family, who are not vegetarians, but rather "whole foods/slow foods geeks," dove into their vegan troughs with over-zealous piggy enthusiasm and joy.

Ann Gentry's delicious vegan recipes continue to inspire and delight me, and I was thrilled that my foodie family agreed. Suffice it to say, we have been licking our troughs clean all around town and at home. Those of you who have been following me for a while are aware that Alexandra suffers from severe food allergies to wheat, dairy, eggs and nuts. Breakfast Recipe: Savory Muffins with Prosciutto & Chives Recipes from The Kitchn. I grew up in a sprawling, voracious family that loved cereal so much we didn't wait until breakfast to indulge.

When my mom came home from the store with a load of "healthy" cereals and one special box of Golden Grahams, we all knew to pour a bowl immediately; it wouldn't last until breakfast. My dad munched Cap'n Crunch as a late-night snack, and we anticipated our grandmother's visits partly because that was the only time we'd get Honey Nut Cheerios. Two of my little brothers were bragging just the other evening about that time they took all the marshmallows out of the Lucky Charms, ate them, and put the cereal back in the box (generating an unhappy surprise for a sleepover friend later that week).

Now, I still love cereal, and I indulge from time to time, but lately I've been leaning on a breakfast that has a little more protein and a lot less sugar, a breakfast you can eat at the bus stop or in the car — which, for all its delights, is something you can't say for cereal.

We had a little weekend holiday with some friends in Chikmagalur. It was green, misty, wet and beautiful! Pumpkin and Feta Muffins Recipe. You all know by now, I love self-published cookbooks.

Particularly ones with a strong point of view, thoughtful design, and inspired recipes. Marvelous Muffins. I am not a big baker.

Marvelous Muffins

I do not bake because when I do, I tend to eat the whole batch of warm whatever-it-is and wind up with a serious tummy ache. A fresh, chewy cookie or muffin is my absolute undoing, so I don’t often offer myself the temptation. However, two things happened over the past week: I completed a major project at work (therefore I needed a reward) and I found this very healthy recipe for orange-blueberry muffins.

Now that pumpkin puree is once again sprouting up on grocery store shelves, (still can’t find it? Cottage Cheese Muffins Recipe. I'm always on the lookout for cookbooks by Rose Elliot.

Cottage Cheese Muffins Recipe

They aren't always easy to find, particularly if you are like me, living in the United States. For those of you who haven't heard of her, Rose is an accomplished UK-based cookbook author who focuses on vegetarian recipes - three million copies of her books in print. I loved the idea behind her golden, puffy, sun-dried tomato muffins which I came across in Vegetarian Supercook. Not only does their cottage cheese and ground almond base make them a smarter way to start the day, the combination of tomatoes, cheese, and basil baking in a hot oven makes your kitchen smell like a pizzeria.

Backing up a bit, one of the great things about Rose's recipes (generally speaking) is that many of them strike a strong nutritional balance. I encourage you to give these muffins a try, but keep a few things in mind. Let me know what you think of these, I really enjoyed them hot, as well as room temperature as a quick snack.

Olive Thyme Mini Muffins (Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Paleo)

I’m stopping in today to share these mini olive thyme muffins with you because I just couldn’t let the week go by without passing the recipe for these along. You may be saying to yourself “I can’t even think of baking another thing right now” but not to worry these little muffins are no effort at all and well worth turning on the oven for. There’s no long list of ingredients or complicated preparation involved, just chop, whisk and pour and into the oven they go. Grain-free, sugar-free zucchini mini-cakes with mint yoghurt. Week 5 of my sugar-free challenge is now well under way. I have certainly broken the habit of looking for that 'something sweet' after meals and found a heap of alternative ways to enjoy baked treats.

Not even the fresh new-season mangoes can lure me in at this point! My trustworthy kitchen garden is also providing some special treats - lots of different kinds of mint are flourishing and they can certainly give that extra sweetness and freshness to salads, as well as a bowl of plain yoghurt sprinkled with cinnamon.

Last weekend of summer - A day on the boat and thyme, pine nuts and feta muffins. It is the last weekend of summer here in Sydney! Saturday was beautiful so we decided to pack our picnic basket and bags and spend the day on the boat at Sydney's beautiful Pittwater. It was a stunning day and every time we go boating it feels like such a luxury. I love getting away from the city, away from all the traffic noise and masses of people. There is no better way to enjoy this beautiful city than on water and it really is the best way to relax and just get away from it all.
