Sugar Free Sweet Potato Pancakes

Sweet Potato Pancakes

Just one more sleep until Pancake Day! It’s a day we look forward to every year – not that we need an excuse to eat pancakes, haha. And despite the association many have, of pancakes being a sweet indulgence, it’s easy to make pancakes that use healthy ingredients without compromising on taste.

Celeriac & Potato Soup

We are great soup aficionados in our house. Butternut Squash, Pumpkin, and Parsnip & Apple Soup are all family favourites, and for a special treat my German Cheese & Mince Soup hits just the right spot.
