Apricot Chicken

Sometimes I crave something different for dinner. Yesterday was one of those days. When I have a friend over, I like to create a tasty meal to share. This recipe ticked both of those boxes for me. Although I have made apricot chicken before, my original recipe wasn’t satisfying. So, I searched online and found […]

Sweet Zucchini Slice

It’s zucchini season again and they are in abundance. A few weeks ago, a friend gave me some of her home-grown zucchinis and a recipe for a zucchini cake. I set about adjusting the recipe to suit my diet and this was the result. The original recipe contained both SR and plain flour, an egg […]

Pecan, hazelnut and honey biscuits

This recipe is a take on my Walnut and Hazelnut Biscuits which are very popular amongst my friends. I have replaced the walnuts in my original recipe with pecans. Neither walnut or pecan paste is available locally, so I throw the nuts into my food processor and process them until they form a paste. This […]

Chicken, corn and vegetable soup

It’s winter here in Australia, and it is the time of year we look for soup to warm our tummy! Chicken and corn soup is one of my favourites. I love the flavour of chicken and corn together. Last night I felt like a warm bowl of soup to share with a friend, chicken and […]

Broccoli Soup

Broccoli is one of my favourite vegetables. I like its earthy flavour. This recipe is my take on a broccoli soup. It includes potato as a thickener, bacon to enhance the flavour, and MasseI salt-reduced chicken stock cubes. The stock cubes have a great taste, and they are vegan if you wish to leave the […]

Walnut and Hazelnut Biscuits

Over Christmas a friend gave me some unshelled walnuts. Recently another friend gave me more. So, this week I began a search for a new biscuit recipe containing walnuts. I came across a recipe for Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies at eatingbirdfood.com. Normally I look past recipes made with peanuts as I am intolerant. But this […]

Rhubarb Hazelnut Muffins

Recently, a friend offered me some rhubarb stalks from her garden. I took them gratefully and began searching for a suitable recipe to adapt for my diet. I came across one for Rhubarb Almond Flour Muffins at heartbeetkitchen.com. I have changed quite a few of the ingredients from the original recipe, including the sugar content. […]

Zucchini Muffins

Over the last few weeks my friends have given me lots of zucchinis. There is often an excess supply here in Australia at this time of year. So, I needed a new recipe to use them. While searching the internet I came across this recipe which I have adapted to suit my food intolerances: https://www.curatedlifestudio.com/zucchini-and-carrot-muffins/ […]

Carrot Muffins

Healthy and nutritious food does not have to be tasteless and boring. I enjoy making healthy alternatives to my old favourites.  It is a relief to know that I can eat food which tastes delicious and is good for my health. Christmas food is traditionally rich, but not always healthy. As this time of year […]
