Happy weekend! Thank goodness for some relaxation. It’s been a long week, and one with very little direct sunlight, but today when I got up the sun was blazing in through my window and there was snow everywhere. I like snow when the sun is shining, it’s beauts.

As I mentioned in my last post I am on a healthy eating thing. So no more white flour for me. Instead I am using full corn spelt flour, ground almonds flour or buckwheat. For these delicious thyme and passion fruit waffles, I used spelt.

I sprinkled a LOT of honey on top, with a mix of yoghurt and marscarpone. So yum. I also used Soja milk, because my flatmate Isaac is lactose intolerant, but you can use the equivalent amount normal milk.

A lot of people think that using herbs like rosemary and thyme in sweet dishes is a bit odd.. but I think it’s lovely. Don’t knock it until you have tried it. These spelt waffles are a great way to start.

As so many of my favourite bloggers share their best find of the week on their blogs, I thought it was my turn – so here are some things I have seen and loved this week.

  1. Inspiring shapes for your home at Design Sponge
  2. Interview with Artists Johanna & Jatinder at Freunde von Freunden
  3. Interview with author of M is for Marrakesh about being a black woman in Rome
  4. All about eating parsnips at the Kitchn
  5. 3 easy everyday vinaigrettes at Blog over Thyme
  6. Shout out to my friends Gabriella & Minette who write tongue in cheek political satire at The Rolling Eye
  7. Earl gray homemade Granola by one of my favourite bloggers at What should I eat for breakfast today?
  8. Warm brussel sprout salad from Christelle is Flabbergasting
  9. For any coffee lovers – my dear friend Holly has just moved back to Canada to start a speciality coffee roastary. If you love coffee, sign up to their newsletter – this coffee is going to be quite something. Honestly, something great. Oiseau Coffee
