Simple fruity bites

Simple fruity bites

Two simple fruity bites for you and your family. Bites that take 20 mins to make, from start to finish. I made a promise to my blog the other day, that I would add to it more. I feel like it might have, perhaps, lost…

2 ingredient chocolate mousse

2 ingredient chocolate mousse

The most simple, delicious, 2 ingredient dairy-free chocolate mousse, loved by the whole family. I didn’t intentionally make them dairy free, but they work ever so well. My eldest daughter, Florence, adores them, especially served in an egg cup. Great for a little chocolate treat,…

Chocolate Pancake Swirls

Chocolate Pancake Swirls

A simple and utterly delicious recipe for chocolate pancake swirls. It is a slightly adapted version of my Yorkshire pudding recipe from my festive ebook. Very similar in taste and texture to the inside of a pain-au-chocolat. If you aren’t a chocolate fan then you…

Mrs P’s Festive E-Book

Mrs P’s Festive E-Book

It is with great excitement that I have launched my first e-book, which is available Worldwide. I was fortunate enough to be published last November with my first hard copy book The Low-Carb Diabetes Cookbook. Since then so much has happened and it has been quite…

Low-carb blackberry crumble with homemade custard

Low-carb blackberry crumble with homemade custard

A simple and delicious low carb recipe for blackberry crumble with homemade custard. One of my favourite moments recently has been wondering through the lanes in the open countryside near our home picking blackberries with Florence. Since the sickness and nausea lifted at 16 weeks…

Low-Carb Cheesecake

Low-Carb Cheesecake

This is the most delicious low-carb cheesecake you will find… please read on! I have never been a huge cheesecake fan. Well, not until I created this recipe. I have always found them far too sweet and cloying. When I was about 10 I made…

Low-Carb Hot Cross Buns

Low-Carb Hot Cross Buns

Walking through the supermarket earlier smelt like I’d walked into a hot cross bun oven. It was inescapable. Out of interest I picked up a packet to look at the ingredients. I gave up after getting to number 20….I wasn’t surprised, of course. But, is…

Chocolate hazelnut spread

Chocolate hazelnut spread

Did you know that a standard 440g jar of Nutella contains a staggering 249g of sugar. That works out as a 37 gram serving of sugar in every two tablespoons, or a whopping 57 cubes per jar. Worrying? The alternative options have the same amount of sugar and…

Low-Carb Mince Pies

Low-Carb Mince Pies

I recently asked my readers whether there was anything Christmas food related that they would like to see a low-carb alternative for.  The messages flooded in. Everything from eggnog and twiglets to brandy butter and turkey sandwiches. Low-carb mince pies appeared a grand total of…

Blueberry Yoghurt Cake

Blueberry Yoghurt Cake

This cake is currently being made on a weekly basis in our house. Florence (my one year old daughter) adores it. She sometimes has a slice for breakfast usually with a rather mismatched side of avocado (her most favourite food). Otherwise I will pop it…

4 ingredient banana and chocolate chip loaf

4 ingredient banana and chocolate chip loaf

With only 4 ingredients, this is probably the most simple nut free, grain free and dairy free banana bread loaf you will find. It was created at 11pm a few nights ago. We are moving house today but at the time I was busy packing…

Mini four ingredient banana and blueberry pancakes (for babies and adults too)

Mini four ingredient banana and blueberry pancakes (for babies and adults too)

I have been weaning Florence now for 4 months and it’s been such an enjoyable and exciting process. Watching her try new flavours and textures; going from puree to mashed food, then finger food to 3 full meals a day. There is currently nothing she…
