Mango, ginger and lime chia pudding

 

Summer is here!  It seems that we’ve had lots of warm weather all over Australia recently.  I love this time of year because of the wonderful produce that is available to us all.  One of those special treats for me is mango.  I don’t eat a lot of them because of the sugar content, even […]

(paleo) 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 that […]

(paleo) Super simple 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/LCHF) Cauliflower buns/rolls

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) 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/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) 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 […]

(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 […]
