Some of our favourite cupcake flavours this summer have been the lighter, fruity flavours. There are some really awesome fruit flavour combinations out there, here are some of the ones we tried.

Summer? Fruit? Wine?….Yes please! There are so many variations to Sangria, each one equally delicious i’m sure. We use this general guideline when we make sangria, but there are so many different combinations you can use. Use your favourite wine and fruit and make your own version of sangria, or give ours a try! Continue reading
Yay! Pizza that isn’t loaded with carbs! ( and tastes good too!)
This cauliflower crust pizza is incredibly easy to make, just top with your favourite pizza toppings and enjoy! It’s also great for anyone with a gluten allergy.
I first heard about using cauliflower instead of pizza dough from a colleague who told me that he and his fiance had tried it and thought it was really good. I was a bit skeptical but still wanted to try it out. We followed a recipe that I found online (see below for link) and both agreed that it tasted really good. The only thing to watch out for if you try this out is the crust thickness. It doesn’t stay together like pizza dough, so try not to spread the crust too thin.
