This is why I love Guest Blogs! The variety and creativity are just unlimited. Each guest blogger brings with herself a unique taste and flavour and recipe which is tried and tested in their homes and with their loved ones and then I get to share it with you guys via this platform.

This week’s sweet recipe is by sweet and extremely talented friend Suhana Devnani. Suhana is a kindergarten teacher, teaches Spanish and an extremely talented recipe developer, an ardent baker, cook, and mum to beautiful 5 yo little A.

This baked cauliflower recipe was a huge hit at our dinner table especially with the toddler who after polishing off his plate, started to pick bits from his brother’s. No kidding!
