(paleo) Pork & eggplant curry

Pork and eggplant curry

Hellllllloooooo!!!!!  It is so long since I have posted on my website, looked at a new recipe or even spoken to you all that I feel like I almost need to reintroduce myself.

For those who are new to my blog, my sincere welcome, I hope you find it interesting.  For those who are [...]

(paleo) Breakfast bar

Paleo Breakfast Bars

In January 2010, I said “Hello” to the blogging   community and started my Food 4 Thought website.  My goal was to put my passion for cooking into pages to share with others and hopefully along the way, inspire people to cook.

How things have changed!   I still love to cook [...]

Food journeys, diets, eating plans, lifestyle choices.  These all evolve, grow and change, at times somewhat dramatically throughout our lives.

Food has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. My “journey” began as a youngster in the kitchen with my Mum.  I remember helping to make sausage rolls for [...]

Mother’s Day is the one day of the year where most of us stop, even if only briefly, to recognise the AMAZING job that Mothers do in this world.  I’m sure the word “job” should actually be in flashing lights because it is a 24/7, all consuming lifetime commitment.

I am extremely blessed [...]

Carrot cake

Sharing recipes of any kind is a very special thing.   Some of them involve family traditions and secret ingredients; many are not even written down and only learnt through teaching the next generation.  This is something that I have always loved about cooking and one of the things that drives me to continue teaching [...]

(paleo) Healthy chocolate cake

I know the title of this recipe is almost an oxymoron, but it’s true.  I designed this recipe because G & I have been (attempting) a Paleo diet of late.  The concept is really interesting and (I think) we are starting to see some results.  I’ll elaborate a little more in [...]

Paleo smoothies

The start of a new year seems to be the time that many of us make resolutions to change something in our life for the better.  While I’m not one to do so because I feel like I am setting myself up to fail, it is a time that I reflect on my [...]

(healthy) Ice cream

Ice cream

It never ceases to amaze me how popular the Thermomix has become.  It seems to be the “BBQ conversation” for both men and women.  Many more husbands are buying the Thermomix as a Christmas gift and lots more Mums want them before Christmas to help with the festive food.  Mmmmm Christmas cocktails   In [...]

Trio of healthy dips with homemade crackers

Trio of dips

I’m sure, like many other people, I find the beginning of a new year a time for reflection over the year(s) past.  I like to recap on lessons learnt, think about how I want the next year to be and sometimes even have a loose plan of action.

I used [...]

Potato salad with seeded mustard mayonnaise

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 [...]
