Ferrero-rocheresque Balls!!

Ferrero-rocheresque Chocolate Balls – Healthy Energy Shots

This recipe is not a result of a travel inspiration, but a travel necessity. You know by now, how we love to go on long hikes and lone roads and walk miles to witness the lonely hourly-steam-spouting geyser in the middle of nowhere. This, sometimes comes with a unique but very real problem. Food. You need instant energy to do all the tough hikes. At the same time, its practically impossible to carry loads of food in your backpack.

Gluten Free Pita Bread

For the love of Falafel (Part 2): Pita Bread GF

Food related ideas and plans excite me. So did the idea of creating a Lebanese themed dinner at home, complete with Falafel, hummus, tabbouleh and Pita Bread… err, what? Isn’t Pita Bread a high gluten item? It is. And, I tested the hundreds of Gluten free wraps and rolls available in the market. To say the best, I wouldn’t deem them right for human consumption.

Coconut marries Fruit!

Coconut and fruits are a match made in heaven. No, they are! Ask a Pina Colada, or, the insanely amazing Mango sticky rice we had in Thailand. Back in Australia, we are in the midst of winter and mangoes aren’t easy to procure right now. Also, it doesn’t really help that the husband and I are Gluten-free until further notice. But I was adamant in using coconut and fruit together

A throwback to the culinary delights of Peru

Creating food from the lands beyond, is a sure way to barge into the memories from your old journeys. The thing with food is, that your food journey doesn’t necessarily end with your travel; if anything, it is only born there. I find that I take food inspiration from all our travels, whether it is adding a Creole touch to my food by taking inspiration from the cuisine in Seychelles
