(paleo) Lemon curd

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

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 that […]

(paleo) Easy 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 Рwhat else is there? However, there is so much we can do with a few basic alternatives.

This is one […]

(LCHF) 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) Pavlova wreath


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) 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 the bowl with […]

(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 ‚Äújourney‚ÄĚ began as a youngster in the kitchen with my Mum.¬† I remember helping to make sausage rolls for […]

(paleo) Pancakes

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‚Äôm sure the word ‚Äújob‚ÄĚ should actually be in flashing lights because it is a 24/7, all¬†consuming lifetime commitment.

I am extremely blessed […]

(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 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 […]

(healthy) 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 ūüôā¬† In future […]
