Another addition to the home made spice mixes! Woo. Homemade curry powder is something of a new thing to me. I probably first made it a few months ago. Again it is inexpensive and very easy to put together.

Homemade Garam Masala Powder

Homemade Garam Masala Powder

Homemade garam masala powder – the easy way. I say the easy way because I have ground the whole spices by hand in the past. It was not fun and it took FOREVER. It is inexpensive. Some people rarely use it. I am some people. When I use it, I use a little towards the end of cooking because I find that it can sometimes overpower a dish completely.

I absolutely love dukkah. It is just the most delicious spice mix. It is toasty, spicy, warm, comforting, nutty, crunchy, flavourful and totally addictive. So, so addictive.

Pumpkin Puree

You know when it comes to Autumn and Pinterest is FULL of pumpkin related recipes but the shelves in the supermarket have no pumpkin puree on them? Tell me that has happened to you too? OK..just me. So for the last couple of years, I have been making my own pumpkin puree! I use it for recipes like this Crustless Pumpkin Pie.

Apple Sauce

Apple Sauce

This Apple Sauce recipe is made for similar reasons to this pumpkin puree recipe. Come Autumn the news feed is full of apple based bakes and cakes and I am yet to find apple puree in my supermarket. I am told it is next to the baby food which is an aisle I always forget to go down.

Fruit, Ginger and Nut Granola

Fruit, Ginger and Nut Granola

I love granola. This fruit, ginger and nut granola is absolutely delicious and so filling. After I had my son, I ate a lot of granola. I also ate copious amounts of chicken soup and sometimes toast. I didn’t really eat much else in those first 2 months after the birth. Mainly because my gran in law was always watching (she is a g and i’m a little bit scared of her) and she has her own theories on what a new mother should or should not eat.
