A wanted an orange cake for his birthday, so I made two versions: one for him, and one for me. Hey, I wasn’t going to miss out on orange cake!
This cake is moist and absolutely delicious. It contains all things coconut: coconut oil, coconut milk and coconut flour. It’s held together with eggs, Continue reading
This smoothie is creamy and super-rich. It’s exactly what I wanted, however, it was so rich that it nearly made me sick. In small doses, it’s really good, but I wouldn’t recommend drinking the full serving. Would I make it again? Probably not, Continue reading
It takes just four ingredients to make these deliciously creamy white chocolate treats. However, if I was truthful, these aren’t actually white chocolate, but they are creamy and have a similar mouth feel, so let’s go with it. I would have loved Continue reading
I remember the time when A and I used to devour a whole pan of lemon bars in one evening. What I don’t remember is if those evenings were also packed with brownies and/or chocolate chip cookies! Anyhow, the lemon bars had a delicious buttery base/crust, and was topped with a heavenly lemon custard.
Due to my dietary choices, lemon bars have not been on my menu for over three years. It’s Continue reading
I love hummus. It’s creamy, smooth, delicious and packed full of protein (isn’t that the in thing these days?) This version is awesome because it’s free of tahini (ground sesame seeds). The secret is using some of the bean juice from the tin. Continue reading
I no longer eat tomatoes. This isn’t a new development, I stopped eating nightshades about 2-1/2 years ago. Considering I didn’t enjoy tomatoes until my mid-twenties, I wouldn’t have thought that this would be a big loss. However, in some ways it has been. I no longer can enjoy many Indian curries, tomato-based pasta sauces and more. However, where there’s a will, there’s always a way.
When I saw this recipe, I knew Continue reading
Have you ever tried the Parmesan cheese available in canisters? You know, the stuff that smells like puke. I guess it’s an acquired taste, but I’ve never liked the stuff. The only way that this cheese is similar to that puke stuff, is that it’s sort of “ground”. I wanted a Parmesan cheese that didn’t melt Continue reading
I was super-skeptical about this recipe when I first saw it, but after making it, I was pleasantly surprised. This cheese (or should I call it cheeze) shaves/grates well, is creamy, salty and tangy, and perfect on salads. It’s made with simple ingredients Continue reading
This simple dish is tasty, healthy, easy to make, and perfect for a weeknight dinner. The noodles are made from courgettes (zucchini), spiral sliced (I have the Joyce Chen spiral slicer). The noodles are free from gluten, and if you’re worried about calories and carbs, they are low in those too. I love noodles, and on the days I don’t want to reach for rice noodles (again), I make zucchini noodles. Continue reading
I have been without nightshades for over a year now, and the only thing I miss are chili peppers. Can you believe that? I particularly miss spicy foods, especially curries.
I know that curries don’t have to be spicy, so I created a coconut curry without chili peppers. This soup is made with onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, lemongrass, coconut, rice noodles and kabocha squash. I added two boiled eggs, Continue reading
I tried the hard taco shells many moons ago, and I really didn’t like them. I’m more of a soft tortilla gal, and since I find the gluten-free tortillas so unpalatable, I use more natural wrappers, such as collard greens, lettuce, or in this case, roasted seaweed. Yes, nori sheets… wonderful and versatile! Continue reading
Wow. I haven’t eaten something that resembles bread for a loooong time. I don’t miss bready things, so I guess I am one of the fortunate ones. However, after seeing this recipe, I was really curious to try what these muffins tasted like. They were pretty good, especially with jam (or butter and jam, if you can eat dairy). Continue reading
