Sweet Chilli Salmon with Sesame Seeds

I don’t tend cook a lot of Asian Recipes – I prefer Mediterranean foods, and the balance of flavours and spices in Asian cooking tends to be a little out of my comfort zone – (I’m working on it).  My Asian Sticky Chicken Thighs were a big hit in our house!  However, I do love…

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Not only are these Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies insanely delicious – they’re actually healthy too!  Thought you’d never hear such a thing?  Well these cookies are free from gluten, grains and refined-sugar and contain only wholesome natural ingredients, so there’s no excuse not to treat yourself to one (or a few) every now and again….

Roasted Carrots with Honey, Thyme & Toasted Almonds

Let’s face it, carrots can be pretty boring.  A staple vegetable on the side of most meals, very little attention is often paid to them. Usually steamed or boiled, they’re pretty ordinary, but this is a recipe to make them just that bit more special.  I love carrots, especially with a roast dinner and have…

Apple & Cinnamon Crumble

I don’t normally make desserts as neither Dan nor I have a sweet tooth, but we had guests coming over tonight so I decided to go to the extra effort – and if I’m making a dessert, I might aswell make one that I can eat, right? I decided on apple crumble as I had…

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…

Berry & Mint Fruit Salad with a Honey Lime Dressing

Ok, so this is hardly a recipe (throw some fruit in a bowl, scatter over some mint, sprinkle over a secret dressing and it’s done) but it looked so spectacular and went down so well when I served it at a recent BBQ that I just had to include it! I started with a base…

3-Ingredient Salted Nut Brittle

After the success of my no-sugar Coconut Ice, I decided to have another go at making a different sweet that I used to love as a child – Peanut Brittle.  I knew it would be impossible to get the crunch of a peanut brittle without adding sugar but I figured that the Coconut Ice worked so well…

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…

Pear, Prosciutto & Goat’s Cheese Salad

Tonight I fancied a salad, and having pears to use up I wanted one that would incorporate them.  Normally I’d turn to my old fail-safe: Pear, Blue Cheese and Walnut salad, but tonight I decided to try something different.  I love the combination of salty and sweet so I decided to pair the pears (!)…

Easy Guacamole

Heading home for Father’s Day, the plan was for my brother and I to cook lunch for my dad – hopefully a BBQ, but in England you always need a backup plan in case the weather doesn’t cooperate. Luckily, the weather looked as if it was going to hold out, so that morning my mum…

Slow-Cooked Lamb Shanks

The weather this week has been pretty miserable, so although this is a very unseasonal dish, it fits perfectly with the climate in London at the moment. Normally when I make a weeknight supper, I try and do something that I can pull together in 30mins or so I can walk home/go to the gym…
