Full English Breakfast Muffins

If you’re anything like me there’s never enough time in the morning to cook a delicious breakfast.  Mornings are always a rush and there’s only ever time to grab something quick to ea t but breakfast is so important so I’m trying to be more organised at the weekends and cook things that I can…

Almond Flour Crackers (3 Ways!)

One of the things I miss most about the medical diet that I’m on is the crunch of a crisp (potato chip).  Sometimes a carrot stick really wont cut it and when everyone has the crisps and dip out it can be tough not to join in!  No longer, bring on the Guacamole!  These Almond Flour…

Egg Fried Cauliflower Rice

If you love Chinese Food, no doubt you’ll be aware of Egg Fried Rice.  It’s a staple on most Chinese menus and goes with almost every dish from Crispy Shredded Beef, to Sweet & Sour Pork to Honey & Sesame Chicken.  Well, this Egg Fried Cauliflower Rice is my healthier, Low Carb version without all…

Lemon & Poppy Seed Muffins

I love a good lemon cake, something about the tanginess combined with sweetness, and Lemon & Poppy Seed is one of my favourite combinations.  The poppy seeds add a kind of savoury nuttiness which just works so well with the lemon.  These Lemon & Poppy Seed Muffins are made without any refined ingredients so they…

Shakshuka – Moroccan Baked Eggs

On a cold winter’s morning there’s nothing like a warming bowl of spicy baked eggs to brighten the day and this Shakshuka is a Moroccan Baked Eggs Recipe.  Originating in North Africa it is now also popular all over the Middle East.  There are many different versions so you can make it as mild or…

If you’re anything like me, you’re always in a rush in the mornings.  Anything that makes getting out the door a little bit easier is definitely something I need.  These Cheesy Courgette Frittata Muffins (Zucchini) can be made in advance and kept in the fridge so on a weekday morning you can grab one as…

Chorizo & Butternut Squash Frittata

Tonight I was in the mood for eggs and we settled on a kind of ‘breakfast for dinner’ type dish.  I love frittatas, they’re so easy to make and very quick to cook and you can add almost anything to them depending on what you have in the fridge that needs using up.  We settled…

Smoked Salmon & Asparagus Quiche

I made this quiche using my Grain-Free Almond Flour Pie Crust Recipe and I blind baked it for 10mins as I knew I was going to have to bake it for another 10-15mins once I had added the filling.  My pie crust pan was a 9inch/22.5cm one so if yours is bigger/smaller you may have…

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…

Eggs Benedict

This morning was Sunday (I know these posts come a few days late) and Sunday calls for brunch and one of my favourites is Eggs Benedict.  There’s something about the Hollandaise that makes it feel really decadent and it’s even better when you make your own from scratch (avoiding all the thickeners and additives that…

Date Night on Charlotte Street

This month it was my turn to be treated to date night and Dan had planned a surprise evening for me – I prefer not to know where we’re going until the last minute, whereas he likes to pick where he goes!  I guess he doesn’t trust me enough to choose wisely on my own…

Scrambled Eggs with Chorizo & Avocado

This morning’s breakfast came about because I wanted to use a piece of my Grain Free Bread!  I looked through the fridge and decided to make a chorizo scramble to top the bread with.  A bit more exciting and tasty than traditional scrambled eggs, but just as easy to make. I started by peeling the…
