Red Hot Chocolate Lava Puddings & a giveaway!

Clearly I don’t take valentines day very seriously, I never really have. Maybe it’s because I met my husband at 17 and we’ve been blissfully together ever since… or that I’d rather buy chocolate for myself than for anyone else! Jason, one half of the mother/son team who manufacture Seatonfire Chocolate offered me a great … Continue reading

Coconut Watermelon Granita & a Giveaway

Let’s play a word association game. I say “TV chef”, you say??? Jamie Oliver. Err’day. I went through a phase where I’d have BBC cooking channel running all day. Didn’t matter who was on – Delia, Nigella, Rick, but the minute Jamie came on, that was it. Game over, it’s tv time! My favourite series … Continue reading

PB & J Pancakes

Growing up we had a fabulously flamboyant Texan friend who was the epitome of Southern American cliché. His name was Uncle Hayseed (yep, that’s legit!) and he was never seen dressed in anything else other than denim jeans, crocodile leather cowboy boots, solid gold belt buckle bejewelled with real diamonds, rubies and sapphires, his crisp white … Continue reading

1-1-1 Anzac Biscuits

I’m definitely not one of those blogs that jumps on every hallmark card bandwagon creating recipes for each and every holiday BUT Anzac Day is a bit special… mostly because I’ve lived in Australia for 10 years, we now have 2 Australian children and I became a citizen 4 years ago, on Australia Day. Coming from Africa, … Continue reading

Coconut Lime Chicken

The heavy metal detox my dentist put me on since having my amalgams removed includes pretty much the most satisfying and best tasting food I’ve ever eaten since I’m getting 60-70% of my calories from fat. Not any old fat, the good stuff: avocado, raw cream, grass fed butter, pasture fed bacon, coconut oil, grass … Continue reading

Grain Free Doughnuts

  I stumbled upon the original version of this recipe on my news feed the other day. Stumbled is too soft a word, it more like slapped me in the face, in a good way! I tried making some donuts over Chanukkah but even I would say that it was not a raging success… so … Continue reading

Double Layered Raw Chocolate Fudge (nut-free)

I posted this photo on my personal facebook and Instagram last night and it caused quite the furor! I’d go so far as to say, it ‘went viral’. Ok not quite but I had everyone begging me for the recipe, so here it is 🙂 I take no responsibility for the over consumption of said … Continue reading

Coco-nutty pancake stacks

Here’s a winning Hot Pink Chilli original recipe which prompted a wide-eyed “Please can I have some more?!” from my notoriously fussy Miss 3. Mom: 1 Fusspot: 0 Get your pancake on… 1/4 C Coconut Flour 4 Eggs 1 Tbsp Nut butter (I used ABC – almond, brazil, cashew) 1/4 C coconut milk pinch salt … Continue reading

Grain Free Sandwich Bread

I’m undone with this one. It’s not an original recipe – just a tweak or 2, why would you change something so perfect?! Full credit must go to Loving Our Guts for this beautiful recipe – it appears foolproof too, bonus! What’s even better about this bread is the fact that it’s nut-free! Eating grain-free … Continue reading

Grain Free Chicken Nuggets

Depending on which blog circles you run in 😉 you may, or may not know about Natural New Age Mum’s “Just Say NO To Chicken Nuggets” campaign? The gist of it is to help you to easily make your own chicken nuggets rather than feeding your family the junk masquerading around as food by fast … Continue reading
