Grain Free Sandwich Bread

Grain Free Sandwich Bread that’s also Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free, Paleo and SCD Legal! Ahhhh Bread! My favourite food in the world and the thing I miss most of all.  There is nothing better than a big slab of granary toast with butter, or a crusty baguette dipped in olive oil, or a gooey Focaccia or…

A Wedding in Siena (Montagnani-Hengen Wedding)

So the real reason that we had come to Siena for the weekend was for the wedding of a friend of mine, Mylene to her fiancé Tommaso (he’s from Siena).  Mylene and I have known each other for 10 years since we lived in Paris together and it was a real privilege to be invited…

Cinnamon & Raisin, Almond Flour Cookies

I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth but even I can’t resist these cookies.  You’ll never guess that they’re grain and refined sugar-free as they taste absolutely delicious – better than most other cookies in my opinion.  And they’re so easy to make – all in one mixing bowl and about 30mins from start to…

To read more see A Wedding In Siena, A Weekend in Siena, Bunello Tasting in Montalcino and A Trip to Viareggio A weekend in Siena in Italy was on the cards for Dan and I, as we’d been invited to the wedding of my friend Mylene to her fiancé Tommaso.  Deciding to extend the trip for…

Melting-Middle Mozzarella Caprese Burgers

Last night we decided to have a BBQ outside and burgers were on the menu.  Dan normally makes his Super Simple Spicy Burgers but today we decided to up the ante and go for something a bit different.  Melting Middle Mozzarella Caprese Burgers were what we came up with.  Deciding to stuff each burger with…

Prosciutto Wrapped Jumbo Shrimp Salad with Mango Salsa

Today, I found some amazing yellow cherry tomatoes while I was out shopping for something for dinner.  I definitely wanted to make a salad with them so I racked my brains to come up with something tasty and light pair them with.  A few weeks ago I made Prosciutto Wrapped Jumbo Shrimp and I loved…

A Quinta – Almancil – Portugal

Getting time with my family is one of my favourite things about Portugal, and tonight was a chance to catch up with my cousin Charlotte and her partner Ross who live out here year-round.  We were spending the evening at one of their (and my) favourite restaurants, A Quinta in Almancil.  I actually wrote about…

Dan’s Super Simple, Spicy Burgers (Chilli & Garlic)

Dan will be the first to admit he’s no chef (although he’s keen to learn!)  but I believe that everyone has at least one special dish in them and this is his…beef burgers that he makes from scratch and grills on the BBQ.  Always a hit with everyone and cooked to perfection every time, it’s…

Enoteca MF – Cadaques – Spain

To read more check out my posts on Cadaques and hiking in Cap de Creus National Park. Tonight in Cadaques, Dan & I decided to go out on our own as all the others were eating in, so true to form, we picked the local wine bar Enoteca MF.  We had a short wait for our table…

Pequeno Mundo – Almancil – Portugal

Once again, my favourite night of the year – dinner at Pequeno Mundo – in fact I’ve already written about this amazing restaurant in my Top Restaurants in the Algarve Round-Up!  It’s such a special place and has huge sentimental value for my family and myself.  We’ve been coming here for years and it’s always…

Roasted Figs with Goats Cheese & Crispy Prosciutto

Figs have two main growing seasons.  The first is now, before the summer and the second is in the autumn.  This means that at the moment there are lots of figs in the stores.  I found some mini figs that looked so amazing and ripe that I knew I wanted to cook with them tonight and…
