Crustless vegetable and ricotta pie with Maltese Gbejna

‘This ‘pie’ is so incredibly quick to make. It is literally an all in one and the ground oats give it a great texture and absorb the liquid that the raw vegetables release to give it body and remove any hint of sogginess. Serve warm or cold, so incredibly delicious and packed with vegetables. It is quick and easy to prepare and economical and has been one of the most favourite recipes of this year’

Making a cup of thick old-fashioned hot chocolate [the healthy way]

In the middle of a cold winter, there is nothing more welcome that a cup of hot chocolate. The old fashioned thick chocolate you usually find served in smaller cups around the Continent is ideal to give a sense of warmth and satisfy the longing for comfort food and sweet cravings that the cold weather usually brings with it.

And there is a way to achieve that luscious thickness and keep a fairly healthy luxurious hot chocolate at the same time. I would say this recipe makes ad rich and creamy hot chocolate without the addition of cream and it is delicious’

Quick weekend baking: Orange Ginger Muffins

‘the idea of using the oranges that are still abundant and ginger makes these muffins sound so healthy with all that Vitamin C and healing properties of ginger.

A very quick, all-in-one method, these muffins can be prepared and baked in 20 minutes from start to finish. I used a mix of grated fresh ginger, ginger powder and crystallized ginger which resulted in the most rounded ginger flavor laced with orange and drizzled with melted dark sugar-free chocolate and more crystallized ginger pieces. These are the best muffins for a cold January, the ginger will give you instant warmth’.
