A good spice mix can transform the most simple wholefood meals into a gastronomical delight. I buy my spices in bulk, not only so I can pop a pinch of this and a dash of that into my saucepan, but to create handy spice mixes for the meals we enjoy over and over. There’s always some basic mixed herbs in my pantry, …

It’s popsicle mania over here in the Om Nom Ally kitchen! In hindsight, my recent purchase of three lots of ten-capacity popsicle trays on Amazon was a “bit excessive” (paraphasing Kam there)  but I’m making the most over my sudden kitchenware splurge by filling our chest freezer with millions of wholefood popsicles. I tried my hand at a batch with coconut water and …

These soft and chewy spiced almond meal cookies are fabulous. One bowl recipes really appeal to my hatred for washing dishes while also satisfying my desire to procrasti-bake. The abhorrent task I’m avoiding this this week? Writing a business plan for my naturopathy course…. I’m unable to sit still for more than ten minutes to get my head around it and …

It seems like forever ago that I promised to share some specific recipes using Home-made Fermented Pineapple Vinegar – and no wonder, the original recipe was posted eight months ago! Between taking a break from the blog and the really uninteresting ways I consume this vinegar (a pre-breakfast teaspoon of vinegar in water, flax-pineapple vinaigrette or citrus dressing for salads) I hadn’t really been …

Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Bread + Home-made Savoury Pumpkin Puree

Alison Murray Baking, Dairy-free, DIY, Recipes, Vegan, Vegetarian 4 Comments

While discussing my favourite foods with a friend from LA recently I discovered some generalities about Americans and Australians – notably that many residents of the US don’t seem to find a savoury pumpkin dish enticing while myself and many Australian’s find it hard to grasp this popular vegetable as a dessert ingredient. Pumpkin with cinnamon and nutmeg? Puh-lease! Pass me the salt, …
