Sweets are more than just simply desserts. They balance savoury and with anything, like I have recently learnt in Macrobiotics and Yin and Yang concept, the are always opposites e.g. Sweet v Savoury!
That is why, in most cases, when we go out to a restaurant, after we have enjoyed our main savoury dishes(s), we like to enjoy a sweet dessert afterwards to complete the meal.
With this in mind, I love to create sweet treats, cakes, puddings and desserts using healthier ingredients, avoiding bad fats and refined sugars whilst opting for much more natural and less ‘sugar spiking’ sweeteners.
Here you will find a selection of much loved, much tried and tested dishes for you to try at home.
Your loved ones will be happy that you are not only feeding them dessert, you are truly showing them that you care by giving them something healthy & nutritious to enjoy.
