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 bread rolls

Low-carb bread rolls

“Your home smells like I’ve just walked in to a bakery” were the words of the plumber this morning as he walked through the hallway and he was right, it did. I could have kissed him. It felt like a huge compliment and even though […]

Simple one pan sandwich

Simple one pan sandwich

Monday and Friday are my child free mornings to get work done. Florence is in nursery and so I spend most of my time writing or recipe testing. The first few times she went she utterly hysterical at me leaving her. Seeing her so upset […]

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. Mince pies appeared a grand total of 35 […]

Easy Low Carb Bread

Easy Low Carb Bread

I adore all of my recipes, but this is one that I am particularly proud of, because it means that I can eat BREAD. I can make it up and pop it in the oven almost immediately, bake for 15-20 minutes and that’s it! It […]

Low Carb Pesto Pizza (+ Video)

Low Carb Pesto Pizza (+ Video)

A while ago I shared a photo of my pesto pizza creation on Instagram and Facebook asking whether any one would like to trial the recipe. Thinking perhaps a couple of people would respond, I ended up having over 200 requests and since then the […]

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 […]

Cheese and onion quiche with a celeriac and fennel crust

Cheese and onion quiche with a celeriac and fennel crust

We have finally moved and I can’t tell you how good it feels. Being able to walk out to the park or to a shop, without having to pack what used to feel like our worldly belongings in to the car is a revelation. Convenience […]

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 […]

Cauliflower cheesy bites

Cauliflower cheesy bites

Because who doesn’t love cauliflower cheese? Well, my mum for one, but trust me, these are divine. A perfect addition to a salad, Sunday roast, home cooked feast, barbecue, picnic, or just finger food to hand around at a party. Easy to prepare with hardly […]

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 […]

Lemon and sesame kale crisps

Lemon and sesame kale crisps

A simple and incredibly health friendly recipe for those trying to avoid crisps (chips)! Obviously these aren’t the real thing, but neither are they full of a bucket load of unhealthy ingredients. They are crispy, flavour packed and take next to no time to make. Perfect […]
