Coconut Ice

I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth, luckily for me as I don’t eat any refined sugar (I eat honey and naturally occurring sugars in fruit etc, but no sugar, agave, coconut nectar, stevia etc) but I was really craving something sweet after my dinner tonight.  I decided to make my no-bake, 5 ingredient (though they…

Grain-Free Almond Flour Pie Crust

This recipe is a really easy one (much easier than making real shortcrust pastry – and much more forgiving).  It’s only 4 ingredients and comes together in a flash.  It can turn a midweek supper into something that feels much more special and seems like you have put so much more effort into it than…

Fellow-Blogger Friday #1 – Summer Salads Round-Up

There are so many amazing food-bloggers out there that I’ve met since I started this blog that I wanted to share the love and show you some of the incredible recipes that other people out there are creating! When the sun is shining I always want something healthy and fresh to eat – It’s so much easier to make…

Pan Fried Sea-Bream with Lemon & Caper Butter Sauce

A few too many ‘meat-heavy’ BBQs recently meant that we were craving a lighter dinner tonight so we decided that fish should be on the menu.  Settling on sea bream I decided to pair it with a lemon and caper butter sauce as I love that kind of sauce with sole, but have never had…

Grain-Free Focaccia: Cherry Tomato & Rocket Pesto

I made my Grain-Free Sun-dried Tomato & Olive Focaccia last week and loved it so much I’ve been dreaming about it ever since!  Tonight I decided to make it again but change-up the ingredients.  I settled on cherry tomatoes and a homemade rocket pesto to top this one with. The main ‘bread’ base was the…

Lentil, Feta & Mint Salad

A few weeks ago when I made dinner for my Swedish Friends, I made this salad and promised you all the recipe.  Well, I made it again last night and took note of the quantities  this time around to share with you all.

Lime & Garlic Salmon Skewers

Finally it seems Summer has arrived in England – which means more BBQ time!  I was heading back home to see my parents tonight and we decided it was time to fire up the barbie and have dinner outside.   We had some salmon in the fridge so we settled on salmon skewers, along with all…

Easy Salsa Recipe

I don’t like to buy dips from the supermarket.  I find that 99 times out of 100 they will have sugar added, which is so unnecessary (it hides in everything these days) or some sort of binder like potato starch or maize/rice flour or guar gum or some other strange-sounding ingredients.  To this end I…

Lure Fish Kitchen

Tonight was a dinner out with Dan’s family and as his brother Chris is due to have his baby any day now (and his girlfriend Emma-obviously Chris isn’t having the baby), it was suggested that they stay near home and we meet them at a local restaurant.  They picked the Lure Fish Kitchen near to them in Kentish Town…

Grain-Free Focaccia: Olive & Sundried Tomato

As much as I love my Grain-Free Bread, (it’s perfect for toast or sandwiches), sometimes I miss the fluffiness and doughiness of a yummy piece of Focaccia.  I set about trying to create a recipe that would calm the craving and I think I got it pretty damn perfect!  It’s also a lot cheaper than…

The Great Northern Beer Festival

This weekend, the Great Northern Pub was hosting a 3-day beer festival and despite not being a beer-drinker myself, it was going to be a big party so we headed to St Albans to spend the afternoon there. We arrived to a pretty packed out beer garden!  This was the first nice sunny day we’d…

Granger & Co – Girlie Brunch

Knowing how much of a fan Matilda is of the avocado Aussie Brunch (we travelled together in Australia earlier this year – and ate many brunches!) I picked Granger & Co for a Saturday Brunch Treat.  I’d heard great things about the restaurant but never been there myself and they’ve just opened a new location…
