I am not really a baking kind of girl. I’d love to be able to whip up lovely cakes and biscuits but baking is such a science and I tend to lose patience and just want to add extra or change ingredients and the outcome isn’t always edible! Since becoming dairy and gluten intolerant baking is even more of a challenge.
That being said the past week I really wanted some biscuits but wasn’t prepared to buy any from the shop for 2 reasons, most gluten free biscuits are so dry you need to wash them down with a gallon of water and secondly if you read the ingredients list for some biscuits, it’s like reading Latin, I have no clue what most of the ingredients are!
When I first heard about kale crisps I immediately ruled them out thinking they just weren’t for me. Then for months every time I clicked on a foodie website or blog or opened a magazine someone was mentioning kale crisps so I thought they must be good if so many people are talking about them. Eventually I gave in and tried to make my own batch and then kicked myself as to why I hadn’t made them sooner. They are delicious! Perfect snacking food and super healthy too!
This soup for me is Autumn in a bowl. I feel like it gives you a hug from the inside out, perfect when it is a grey, cold, rainy day.
When I lived abroad, I missed the changing of the Seasons so much. I love seeing the changing of the colours and getting wrapped up to go for walks in Autumn. And if I’m totally honest, with it being Autumn, I get to treat myself to a new pair of boots!! Which girl doesn’t love a new pair of boots or shoes?
With the mornings getting colder, now is the perfect time to have something on hand that will warm you up and set you up for the day ahead. The beauty of this recipe is that you can make a batch, store it in the fridge and then quickly warm it through in the morning, or you could even have it cold. Top it off with granola, yoghurt or have a spoonful with porridge.
