Cookbook Club #2

We’re so happy to be back with another ‘CookBook Club’!

We thought we’d share the books and recipes that are making us feel a sense of happiness during this strange time we’re all finding ourselves in. Of course we had to include some baking, as that what a lot of us are doing to pass the time right now!

So lets get stuck in, first off a slightly healthier (but equally as delicious) book perfect for the midweek meal and guilt free snack..


I love this for midweek meals and meal prepping ideas.

Here are the recipes you NEED to try..

EVERYDAY GLUTEN FREE FLUFFY PANCAKES the perfect Sunday morning breakfast, top with maple syrup and fresh fruit to make them even more delicious!

EASY PEASY PESTO PASTA the best pesto recipe you’ll ever try, really light and is the go to dinner for a beautiful summers day.

GRILLED VEGETABLE SALAD WITH CHIMICHURRI this chimichurri recipe is amazing, works great with chicken or fish as well but it’s awesome with the grilled vegetables and halloumi on the recipe.

The Healthnut Cookbook: Energize Your Day with Over 100 Easy, Healthy, and Delicious Meals: Goncalves, Nikole: 9780738284804: Books


Obviously this includes the best fail safe meringue recipe, but also a tonne of other amazingly creative bakes that you’ve probably never tried before!

Here are the recipes you NEED to try..

BOOM TING JAFFA CAKES I know it seems crazy to make your own jaffa cakes, but my gosh it’s 100% worth it! If you don’t make anything else from this book, definitely make these!

COYO, MANGO AND RASPBERRY ROCKETS these homemade coconut yoghurt and raspberry mango coulis lollipops are great for kids and adults, an awesome afternoon treat for a day in the garden.

PROSECCO, STRAWBERRY AND POPPING CANDY TRUFFLES these make the best gifts for a hamper of goodies, or great for an at home afternoon tea. Switch up the prosecco for gin or another of your favourite tipples to give them a bit of a twist.

Meringue Girls: Everything Sweet: Hoffler, Alex, O’Gorman, Stacey: 9780224101059: Books


I honestly couldn’t recommend this book more! There is way too many recipes to choose from, so many amazing salads for all occasions PLUS loads of delicious salad dressing recipes at the back.

Here are the recipes you NEED to try..

GET FIGGY WITH IT I love figs in every way, but they work perfectly with the pomegranate and blue cheese in this balsamic dressed salad.

CHARGRILLED CHICKEN AND CHORIZO CLUB CLASSIC the best lunchbox treat, if you found lunches boring before this will definitely change your mind!

3 WAYS WITH MOZZARELLA always use the best quality mozzarella you can get with this one, they make awesome sides with a dinner for your family or friends. The peach and prosciutto one is a firm favourite of mine.
