(paleo) Lemon curd

9paleo) Lemon curd

I have always said “when life gives you lemons……..make something you love to eat”.

There are many things that I love to make with lemons and one of my absolute favourites is lemon curd.  My pre-healthy life saw me make this recipe which (at the time) I absolutely loved.  For me it is about using something [...]

(paleo) No-bake bars

Honey almond no bake bars

I originally wanted to make something with an Anzac spin on it.  I thought of some kind of ”Anzac Bar” so that they could be easily consumed with your favourite brew after attending a dawn service.  As I was making them I thought “don’t mess with the original”.  Sometimes traditions are just [...]

(paleo) Super simple chocolate

Paleo chocolate

Chocolate has always been one of my favourite things.  However, over the years my tastes have changed slightly and more recently I have turned to the “dark side”, preferring nothing less than 70% cacao.  That being said, I developed this recipe with others in mind also.

I have always loved giving [...]

(paleo) Easy profiteroles

Paleo profiteroles

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 [...]

(LCHF) Meringue stack

Meringue stack

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 [...]

(paleo/LCHF) Spiced lamb burgers

Paleo Spiced lamb burger

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 [...]

(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) 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 perfect as [...]

(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 [...]

(paleo) Carrot cake and cashew cream frosting

Paleo Carrot Cake

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 the bowl with [...]
