Meet my favourite quesadilla. It’s not exactly a traditional quesadilla I know, but it is so packed with flavour and is a great switch up to the usual Mexican flavours. Even Max, who claims he doesn’t like mushrooms, ate these up.

Maple Spiced Candied Nuts

One of my favourite things to snack on this time of year is spiced candied nuts. The sweet, salty, spicy combination just can’t be beat in my books. And, the fact that it’s a slightly healthier Christmas treat is just an added bonus! This year, in my ongoing attempt to cut out processed sugar, when…
