Mila's Meals Homemade Custard Recipe. I came to making custard for Mila not because of wanting to give her a nutrient-dense dessert (we don’t really do desserts – she has those foods as part of her main meal), but as a way to re-incorporate eggs into her diet.
Veggie Crisps Recipe. A nutritious alternative to deep fried crisps which are often available at social events and which are usually laced with MSG, colourants, preservatives and trans fats.

Mila's Meals Butternut and Cranberry Fritters Recipe. Pumpkin fritters are a South African classic! My sister-in-law, Ady, is well known for hers and she makes them for every big family meal.

Mila's Meals Dairy-Free Mango Cheesecake Recipe. These cheesecakes are so versatile in terms of flavour – you can choose any of your favourite fruit for the main flavour. My first-ever vegan cheesecake was a blueberry one – for my sister-in-law soon after she had been diagnosed with cancer and was following a sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten-free diet. That one was followed by an orange and chocolate layered one for our Christmas dessert (made with raw cacao – oh so good!)
Mila's Meals Paleo Doughnut Recipe. Mila has been asking for doughnuts for going on 2 years now. She has seen them in the grocery store and, as with other ready-made food items, she picks them up, smells them (through the packaging), looks up at me and says “Mama can you make these for me please?” For 2 years have been saying that I would make her doughnuts and, finally, I have!
