(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 […]

(Healthy) Caramelised onion jam

The weather has finally warmed up a little in Perth.  For me, that means my eating habits change.  I want to eat lighter, brighter food.  So it is almost time to say goodbye to my curries and wintery stews and hello to more salads, shakes and ice creams.   It also means the opportunity for more […]

(paleo/raw) Salted caramel and chocolate bliss balls (nut-free option)

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 […]

(paleo) Faux white chocolate

Easter time is one of those joyous occasions when many of us catch up with family and friends.  Good food, company and a beverage or two.

There also tends to be LOTS of chocolate in one form or another.  Easter hunts are still as popular as ever with more and more varieties […]

(paleo) Pork & 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

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 […]

(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 rolls for […]

(paleo) Ginger cookies

These days I hear more and more about people with food allergies or sensitivities and I’ve discovered that I’m one of those people.

Learning more about how my body reacts to certain foods has prompted me to ask questions like what am I doing that is contributing to this and how can I change […]

(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’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 […]
