Developing recipes can often be a challenging experience, especially when you are trying to create things that are free of grains, gluten, dairy, refined sugar and on occasion eggs and nuts. With a list like that even I think – what else is there? However, there is so much we can do with a few basic alternatives.
This is one [...]
I have been trying to make any sort of Paleoish meringue/pavlova for a few weeks now. I think I have used at least three dozen egg whites (and made LOTS of mayonnaise with the yolks) and I finally think I’ve cracked it.
Although these aren’t as thick as a normal [...]
Lamb has always been one of my favourite sources of protein. In fact it was the first meat I ate when I broke out of my 15 years of vegetarianism!
For as long as I can remember it ahs almost been traditional to have some form of lamb as part of Australia day celebrations. This year I wanted [...]
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. [...]

I have wanted to make a paleo “pavlova” wreath since I started this way of life many years ago. I think I can adapt many things to “become paleo” however I may have met my match……for now. Not that this recipe is a failure, it just isn’t as perfect as [...]

In my humble opinion, society today feels like a world of convenience. I know this is rather a serious statement for the start my post with but I really feel this dictates many of our daily choices. We all want things faster, easier and with less effort on our own behalf. I’m very [...]
Recently I’ve been varying our diet a little (much to G’s dismay) by trying to get a few more veggies and leafy greens into each meal. That includes breakfast and dessert. And although my banana, chocolate breakfast shake, including a huge handful of spinach (I know it sounds bad), seemed ridiculous [...]
Some time ago I made a strawberry and lemon tart in my food processor. Crisp and buttery pastry, tangy smooth filling, it was the kind of dessert that both G & I love. Unfortunately it didn’t score too highly on the G scale (nor with me really) and the remainder was given away [...]
I’m constantly amazed at how my Thermomix makes the most difficult cooking creations so easy. A few weeks ago I decided to adapt a recipe for a steamed sweet potato puddings. They were delicious and so much easier with the Thermomix.
One of the other things that little miracle machine has done [...]
