(paleo/LCHF) Cauliflower buns/rolls

Cauliflower buns

I’ve never been a big bread eater.  I remember as a child the only thing I really liked was plain white bread with vegemite and grated cheese and even that was only when I was quite young.  As I grew older and my palate developed it wasn’t something I gravitated to. [...]

(paleo) Cranberry and pistachio shortbread

Paleo shortbread

Shortbread is one of the treats I enjoy and following a paleo lifestyle doesn’t mean I miss out.   I love the rich buttery taste and the slightly crumbly texture that almost melted in your mouth yet still had a little crunch.  That is exactly what I wanted from this recipe and I think [...]

(Healthy) Caramelised onion jam

Caramelised onion jam

The weather has finally warmed up a little in Perth.  For me, that means my eating habits change.  I want to eat lighter, brighter food.  So it is almost time to say goodbye to my curries and wintery stews and hello to more salads, shakes and ice creams.   It also means the opportunity for more [...]

Potato salad

I was flicking through my recipes recently and noticed that everything I have posted in the past few months has been something sweet, a slice, cake or dessert.  And as much as I LOVE all of these things I thought it was time for something a little different.

One of the [...]

Green power soup

With the season starting to move towards winter G and I have both suffered with a slight sore throat and minor head cold.  So I’ve been thinking about how I can give our immune system a little boost.

Puppy treats

Puppy treats

 

G and I have a little girl in our lives who is very special to us.  She makes us laugh, makes us cry (I was a weeping mess when I had to watch her go into surgery recently) and brings immense joy to our home. 

It was her (Miss B’s) Birthday recently and [...]

Beef and red wine pie

I have mentioned in my recent posts that G and I have been making a very conscious effort to eat healthy and exercise a little more.  This includes making sure we consume lots of fruits and vegetables into our daily meals, something that we have always been very good [...]
