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…

Rhubarb Orange Compote

Rhubarb is such an autumnal fruit (or is it a vegetable)?  It reminds me of roast dinners followed by mum’s homemade rhubarb crumble and custard.  The rhubarb was always picked from the garden and tasted incredible. That combination of sour tartness and the sweet crispy crunchy crumble just reminds me of Sunday lunches followed by an…

(Zucchini) Courgette Pea & Feta Summer Salad

Wandering around the farm shop the other day I was completely inspired by the amazing range of produce.  Everything looked and smelled so fresh and inviting, but what really caught my eye were the courgettes (zucchini).  They had both yellow and green ones and I knew then that I wanted to make them the star…

Bocconcino Restaurant, Mayfair, London

The weather in London is beautiful at the moment so it meant a lovely walk this evening to Berkley Square and to Bocconcino Restaurant.  Bocconcino had invited us for a complimentary meal to try their Italian fayre and, as that’s my favourite cuisine I was very excited! I love Mediterranean flavours and fresh seafood and…

Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Gremolata

This time of year there are so many beautiful squashes around and squash is so versatile.  I love courgettes (zucchini) and usually use them as courgetti instead of pasta in most dishes.  I like to roast butternut squash and use it in dishes like my Chorizo & Butternut Squash Frittata.  You can use them in…

Mezcal Margarita – Refined Sugar-Free

I love a Margarita but traditionally they’re filled with so much sugar that there’s NO WAY I could enjoy them before.  With Cinco de Mayo coming up I decided that I didn’t want to miss out celebrating with a delicious Margarita again this year!  I knew I had to create my own version that was…

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…

Chorizo Butternut Squash Frittata

Tonight I was in the mood for eggs and we settled on a kind of ‘breakfast for dinner’ type dish.  If you like this kind of idea then my Shakshuka (Moroccan Baked Eggs) is also a great breakfast recipe that I often eat in the evening!  I love frittatas, they’re so easy to make and…

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…
