(paleo) Pavlova wreath

PHOTO TO COME

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 […]

(paleo) Carrot cake and cashew cream frosting

One of the things I love to do most in life is to bake. When I was (much) younger I used to sit on the bench and help my Mum cream together butter and sugar for the beginning of a cake – by hand of course – mixing it in […]

(paleo) Lemon cheesecake

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 […]

(too easy) 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 […]

(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 […]

3 ingredients cupcakes

As those who own a Thermomix know, there are many advantages in doing so. One of the things that I never actually considered when I was purchasing the machine was just how much money I could save on the very basic things that many of us buy pre-packaged. Items such […]

Berry crumble slice

 

Several times I have mentioned that the inspiration to create a new recipe can come from many and varied places. Although this recipe was developed more out of necessity than inspiration.

Most places I’ve lived I have been fortunate enough to have two fridge/freezers or at the […]

Red velvet cake (colour free)

Inspiration to create a new recipe can come from many and varied places. Tasting something that someone else has made, pictures of food, someone else’s recipe or even a Birthday card.

I had a Birthday recently and was fortunate enough to receive many warm wishes in the form […]

Fig and brown butter tart

I love showing people the amazing features of the Thermomix. Watching their faces light up when we create icing sugar from raw sugar in just 9 second and 2 litres of fresh fruit sorbet in 2 minutes with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. The smallest, smartest kitchen machine as […]

Blueberry, lemon, yoghurt cake

In a recent post I mentioned my effort to cook with ingredients that were in season.

I think a big part of what drives me to do so is shopping for fresh fruit and vegetables at local markets. When the new season produce is on the shelf I […]
