Mulled Wine – Refined Sugar Free

At this time of year when there’s a chill in the air you need something warming and what better than a glass of hot, Mulled Wine.  Unfortunately every version I’ve ever seen is full of sugar so if I want it, it’s up to me to make my own!  And luckily this recipe is so…

Greek Style Chicken Traybake

I’m off to Larnaca, Cyprus in a few days and thinking about the trip has got me all excited for Greek flavours.  I love feta cheese and olives and all the grilled meats and can’t wait to make my way through all the mezze that Cyprus has to offer.  With that in mind I decided…

Moules Marinières – Mussels in Garlic & White Wine

Last week I shared with you my Recipe for Gratinated Razor Clams with Chorizo & Parmesan which was the starter dish for my anniversary meal with Dan.  We followed it up with these delicious Moules Marinières as the  main course.  A complete seafood feast! We’ve just discovered a wonderful new seafood supplier near us and…

Gratinated Razor Clams with Parmesan & Chorizo

I love finding great local producers and we have just discovered a wonderful seafood supplier down the road from us in Islington, London.  I’d had my heart set on Moules Marinières for a special Anniversary evening with Dan so I sent him off while I was at work to purchase the mussels.  Later that day…

Chocolate Espresso Pots with TASSIMO My Way Brewer

I’m one of those people who just can’t get going in the morning without a coffee!  I think if it’s possible, Dan is even worse than I am!  We both like our coffee super strong and so when TASSIMO offered to let me try out their new My Way machine I jumped at the chance. …

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, Foccacia 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! …

Iberica Restaurant – Marylebone, London

Today I’d been invited to try the menu at Iberica Restaurant.  Normally I take Dan to these things but today I’d chosen to take my mum because she’s a big tapas sceptic!  She’s only had tapas a few times before but she’s never really been impressed.  The first time was at a UK high street…

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…

Bottomless Brunch at PerBacco – Parsons Green, London

PerBacco (meaning Oh Wow! in Italian) is a relatively new Italian restaurant on the Fulham Rd in Parsons Green.  It’s only been open for about 3 months but already it has had some fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor.  Chef Stefano is in the process of redesigning the dinner menu for Spring, which we would get…
