Sweet Potato Muffins

Sweet Potato Muffins

I haven’t made any gluten free dishes for ages, and my husband is stomping around the house grumpy and with a swollen belly. Time for a little appeasement methinks. Not only that, I have been told by my own doctor that the fatigue and headaches I experience may possibly also […]

Good-for-you Creamy Curry

Good-for-you Creamy Curry

You know those gorgeous Indian curries from up north – the ones you’re not supposed to eat because they are full of all the bad stuff – cream, butter, ghee, ground nuts and coconut cream – dishes like Butter Chicken and that super creamy Korma. By God, they’re good. But […]

Flourless lime and coconut cake

Flourless lime and coconut cake

This is officially the best cake in the world (according to me). Wheat free, grain free, dairy free, low in fat (but not in sugar – hey, you can’t have it all), moist, finely textured, exotic, pretty, keeps well and is incredibly easy to make. AND it tastes like lemon […]

Coleslaw with an asian twist

Coleslaw with an asian twist

Coleslaw used to be one of my favourite salads. Childhood days in my Mum’s late 1970s kitchen, when Margaret Fulton ruled (she still does occasionally), and when a “salad” was always lettuce, tomato and cucumber with french dressing. There were only two other variations – Potato salad (with bacon chips […]

Mocha meringue torte with hazelnut crumble

Mocha meringue torte with hazelnut crumble

This one came to be because it was a friend’s birthday. Not just any friend, but another food blogger. Not just any food blogger, but a food blogger who has been to Paris to study Cordon Bleu cookery (Francine’s blog is here). I stupidly suggested I’d make a cake, and […]

Roasted Vegetable Salad

Roasted Vegetable Salad

This is such a vibrant salad. Considering it is so hot here, even over Christmas, not everyone wants a bowl of hot roasted vegetables. It’s easy to prepare before-hand and features plenty of local and seasonal ingredients. It’s wonderful with turkey, but also makes a great accompaniment to grilled seafood. […]

Gluten Free, Dairy Free cupcakes – as easy as 1, 2, 3

Gluten Free, Dairy Free cupcakes – as easy as 1, 2, 3

It’s amazing where your best recipes come from. This was my son’s maths homework. His male, non-cooking teacher sent home a recipe that was to be used to practice multiplication. He sent home the ingredients for 6 cupcakes, and asked students to make him 12 or 18 at a time. […]

Granny’s Tuna Curry

Granny’s Tuna Curry

Ok – so this is not very gourmet. I’ve discussed Gran’s cooking here. Saying that however, this is one of the favourite dishes in this house, particularly with the kids. Even Mary has been known to say she likes this one, although she might just be showing respect to elders, […]

Sarah’s Summer Pudding

Sarah’s Summer Pudding

Summer Pudding. It’s one of those things I wish I could like, but I just loathe the delivery. Yucky sliced white bread soaked in sloppy juice. The concept is great – oodles of magenta sugary bombs wrapped in a secret parcel, but I just keep on coming back to the […]
