Three Cheese Melanzane Parmigiana (Eggplant Parmesan)

I love this dish! It has all the flavours of a delicious Italian pasta dish with none of the pasta.  Plus it’s grainfree, glutenfree and refined sugarfree!  Watch out when ordering it in at a restaurant though as sometimes they mix in breadcrumbs to the cheese layer or they breadcrumb the aubergines before cooking them. …

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…

Sticky Chinese Chicken Thighs

Having guests over tonight – and with a whole day to cook (what with it being Saturday and not having to go to work) I decided to cook something that takes a bit more time, but which also could be left alone in the oven to do its thing.  Out came the Le Creuset  pan and…

Rocket Pesto (Arugula)

Homemade pesto always tastes so much better than anything you can buy in the shops. This Rocket Pesto  – also known as Arugula Pesto is the US – is peppery take on the Italian Classic.  Fresher and bursting with flavour from the herbs, it adds so much to most dishes.  You can pair it with…

Cauliflower Rice Tabbouleh

Off to a BBQ today I wanted to make a delicious side dish to pair with all the meat and fish we would be eating.  It’s the first real weekend of sunshine that we’ve had here this year and I felt in the mood for a salad, something light and summery and fresh tasting.   I…

Hemsley And Hemsley Cafe, Selfridges, London

I can always count on my mum to want to visit a healthy restaurant with me.  We like the same kind of food and eat the same kind of diet (grain, gluten and refined sugar-free – amongst other things) so when I spent a day with her recently I suggested that we went to the…

Wine Tasting & Nutbourne Restaurant, Battersea (Girl’s night Out)

This evening I’d arranged for four of us to go to the annual Wine Show, held at Chelsea Old town Hall on a Girl’s Night Out.  We arrived at the wine show at 6pm and found that there were over 500 selected wines to taste from all over the world – right, time to get…

Dehesa, Soho, Date Night Dinner

Dan and I take it in turns every other month to take each other on a date night where we plan a special evening for the other person. Last time, he took me to The Ninth on Charlotte St (read about it here), a fairly new restaurant that’s actually just been awarded a Michelin Star, and tonight…

Lime & Paprika Chicken Fillets

Some nights I need a little inspiration for what to cook for dinner.  On these nights I tend to trawl Pinterest as my go-to site for recipe ideas.  I knew I wanted something healthy and I saw a recipe for paprika crusted chicken nuggets.  I couldn’t eat the breadcrumbs of course but the paprika got me…

Kimchi Fried Cauliflower Rice

Disclaimer: I was given the jar of Kimchi free by the company Yutaka to create a recipe with but the recipe and all opinions are my own – I have not been paid for this post. Fermented foods are all the rage these days.  Great for your gut, they promote the growth of healthy bacteria…
