I was never a huge fan of mashed potatoes as a kid. I blame this on school dinners (I mean lunch, school lunches), which consisted of lumpy and watery mash, ugh. Later, I upgraded to instant mash… I know, I know, instant mash! Even then, I was eating it out of convenience rather than something I craved. That was until I had A’s mash. He makes the best mash in the world, seriously! It’s creamy, dreamy, smooth, and just so darn good! Continue reading
Over the summer, I picked ~10 kg (22 lbs) of wild blackberries, and our freezer is packed full with them. Trying out new ways to incorporate blackberries into my diet can be a little challenging, because I love them so much in smoothies. However, I did step out of the box to make this wonderful ice cream.
It basically consists of a honey Continue reading
Apple crumble was the first thing I baked in my Home Economics class (at age 11). It’s been a firm favorite of mine for many years. I enjoyed it with vanilla ice cream, custard and on its own. As my diet has evolved, I was on the hunt for a similar dessert, but without the gluten, dairy or refined sugar. Continue reading
I grew up with school dinners (technically known as school lunches, but I’m from the East Midlands), and we’d occasionally have rice pudding for dessert. It wasn’t great. In fact, it was so bad, you’d think it would put people off it for life. Not me, I upgraded the school dinner rice pudding to tinned Ambrosia rice pudding. Continue reading
You know Vichyssoise? Well, this soup is sort of like Vichyssoise, but different. It’s a little unconventional, using white sweet potatoes instead of “normal” potatoes, and coconut butter instead of cream. The resulting soup is thick, and on the slightly sweeter side. It’ll be great with a thick slice of garlic bread. Continue reading
What’s not to love about root vegetables? They are delicious, affordable, and packed full of nutrients! The sweet combination of the vegetables in this soup complements the light gingery spiciness, while the coconut butter gives it a luscious Continue reading
I have an admission to make: I eat cake for breakfast… not any cake, but these wonderful gluten- and dairy-free mug cakes. They consist primarily of fruit and an egg, and are “baked” in the microwave. Continue reading
These cookies have the holiday season written all over them. They are soft, wonderfully spiced, and lightly sweet. Simply put, they are delicious and truly addictive.
I am not 100% sure that molasses is paleo-friendly, but let’s go with it for now. If you’re strict about this, you could replace it with honey, Continue reading
Did I really promise to share this recipe last December? Oh, shame on me! It’s taken me a whole year to get around to doing it, but you’re going to be happy I did, because this sticky ginger pudding is the bee’s knees. It’s super-easy to make, and consists of the simplest ingredients: bananas, coconut oil, honey, ginger, coconut flour, egg, baking soda and salt. It’s rich, sticky, spicy, sweet and gooey. Continue reading
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
