Time for another installation in my Cookbook Crush series and this time I am showing off yet another breakfast!  Interestingly enough I do tend to eat eggs most mornings for breakfast but on special occasions and when I have a little more time, I will whip up some of this delicious Quinoa Porridge from Lola Berry’s 20/20 Diet Cookbook.  

The recipe can be found on page 30 of Lola’s book and is called the Quinoa and Blackberry Porridge.  I have made a slight change and switched the blackberries for blueberries and the result is just as amazing!  Let me know if you give it a go!

I have had a serious cookbook crush lately and can’t get enough of finding and creating new recipes.  Two of my absolute favourites at the moment are Pete Evans Family Food and Healthy Every Day.  I use these two books at least 3-4 times a week when preparing a meal.

These almond and berry pancakes were a treat for breakfast and are made with such nutritious ingredients like almond meal, cinnamon and coconut flour.  Team it with your favourite almond milk berry smoothie and you will not need anything else until dinner.  You can find them in the Healthy Every Day Cookbook on page 17.

So who our there is a thermomix owner?  I am a newbie to the termie world having only received mine just before Christmas (thanks Mum!) but I am in love!  I seriously use it every day.  This week we had a bit of a seafood extravaganza for dinner – while Mr A did some BBQ’ed prawns I did these amazing mussels in the termie (I think she/he needs a name).  Look forward to sharing more of my creations soon!sweetstyle-2438 sweetstyle-2454 009-seafoodsweetstyle-2460

I have been busy baking and making for the kids lately and one of our favourites this week is a great banana smoothie and these delicious butternut biscuits.

Smoothies are a fantastic drink to serve at parties as they are so good for you and they can be made in a variety of flavours.

These butternut biscuits are also great on your party table as they are sugar free, wheat free, yeast free and diary free – no sugar high crazy kids after these two healthy options!


One ingredient that both of these yummy treats have is Vanilla extract!  Vanilla is such a wonderful natural sweetener and this one by Pink Pantry Vanilla is my favourite.  It is sugar free and gluten free and adds the perfect hint of sweetness to your drinks and baked items.

Today Sunny from Pink Pantry is hosting a give-away for Sweet Style readers.  The pack includes 
50ml pure vanilla extract
30g pure vanilla powder  
6 pack organic vanilla pods


We have two packs to giveaway and all you need to do is make sure you like Pink Pantry Vanilla and Sweet Style on Facebook and leave a comment here to tell us your favourite item to add vanilla to.

The winner will be drawn on Sunday evening and announced via our Facebook Page. 

Best of luck everyone!
