Cinnamon & Raisin Almond Flour Cookies

I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth but even I can’t resist these Cinnamon & Raisin Almond Flour Cookies. You’d never guess that they’re grain, gluten and refined sugar-free as they taste absolutely delicious – better than most other cookies in my opinion.  And they’re so easy to make.  It’s all done in one mixing…

A Refined Sugar-Free Easter? Yes it is Possible!

Easter is around the corner and the shops are full of chocolate eggs, bunnies and hot cross buns.  It’s a sugar-overload everywhere you look!  So what can you treat yourself with at Easter if you can’t tolerate refined-sugars?  Look no further as I have some fantastic suggestions for you to have a Sugar-Free Easter! Hot…

Hot Cross Bun Muffins

Easter is nearly here and nothing screams Easter more than Hot Cross Buns.  That sweet, cinnamon and fruit flavour reminds me of Easter afternoon in front of the fire.  I love a toasted Hot Cross Bun with lashings of melted butter.  I knew I needed to make my own version so I got thinking about…

Grain Free Focaccia – Olives, Sundried Tomato & Rosemary

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…

Chocolate Chestnut Pots

Welcome back and Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you all had a lovely  Christmas full of fun, friends, family and food!  If you’re anything like me you got lots of chocolate for Christmas (just that mine is the 100% cacao kind!)  This Chocolate Chestnut Pots recipe is perfect for using up all that leftover…

Parmigiano Reggiano – Nacho Cups & Cheesy Blinis – Festive Canapés

Parmigiano Reggiano is a delicious, hard cheese, produced in Emilia Romagna, in Northern Italy.  We all know it as Parmesan and I’m thrilled to be partnering with Parmigiano Reggiano to show you two fabulous seasonal canapé recipes that I’ve created with this delicious cheese. The cheese itself is rich, salty and full of flavour and…

Socca Flatbreads

Whenever I ask someone on a grainfree diet what the one thing they miss eating most is, the answer is inevitably bread!  I’m no different!  I spend a great deal of time in the kitchen coming up with bread alternatives.  I have Grain Free Sandwich Bread, Focaccia and CornBread recipes on the blog already and…

Bacon Wrapped Dates – Devils on Horseback

Sticky, sweet, salty and crispy, these bacon wrapped dates are a flavour overload!  However, they’re so easy to make and there’s only two ingredients, the bacon and the dates!  This makes them perfect appetisers if you follow the SCD or a Paleo diet.  Along with my Grain Free Blinis or my Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus, they’re…

SCD Grain-Free Blinis

Do you ever feel left out at cocktail parties?  All those delicious canapés being passed around and you can’t eat any of them?  Whether they’re breaded, deep-fried or served on a crostini or a cracker, there’s usually a grain element to most hors d’oeuvres.  No need to forego the nibbles anymore!  I have the answer! …

Parmesan Crisps

The crunch of a crisp or cracker is the one thing I miss most since I went grain, gluten and sugar free.  These days there are vegetable crisps on the market which fill a small void but I’ve come up with a crispy crunchy snack that is so delicious and so decadent.  Behold my Parmesan…

How to Taste Caviar with Attilus Caviar

Caviar has always been one of those things that has intimidated me a bit.  Great as a garnish on a canapé, blini or as a topping on sashimi but I’ve never really had it on its own.  The fantastic thing though is that it’s a food that is great for my diet as it’s completely…

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus has to be one of the easiest (yet most popular with guests) appetisers I have ever made.  It takes 5 mins to prep, has only 3 ingredients and just needs to bake in the oven for 15-20mins.  For canapés I estimate around 3 per person but they’re definitely popular so make sure…
