Orange and Brandy Chicken Liver Pate

Orange and Brandy Chicken Liver Pate Now if anyone had told me a year ago I would be making my own pâté, I would have said you were bonkers. But the more I read about how we should be eating more organ meat, and the only way I know how is through eating pâté, then I…

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting What’s a low carb cupcake without a low carb Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting? The cream cheese gives a certain sharpness to the flavour, but I like that especially as I have finally lost my sweet tooth (you can see my old way of baking and icing here). You may need to play…

Low Carb Cupcakes

Low Carb Cupcakes I’ve mentioned it before that I don’t make cakes and sweet treats as often as I used to. I feel it is part of the ethos of going low carb that I don’t want to find replicas of what we are actually trying to give up, but sometimes, it is nice to…

Paleo Scotch Eggs

I make my Paleo Scotch Eggs for school lunches, but we also eat them for breakfast and dinner. Scotch eggs are one of the best things to take for a picnic as they are sturdy, portable and self contained little ball of greatness. Apparently, scotch eggs were invented by Fortnum and Mason department store in London, 1738…

Microwave Salmon and Lime

We should all be eating more salmon, more omega 3′s to keep our 3:6 balance in check. Microwave salmon is incredibly easy and fast. By using the microwave to cook salmon, it keeps the salmon moist, and it stops the house from smelling like salmon for a couple of days.  My microwave is 800W, so…

Leeks with Garlic and Cream Cheese

Leeks – love them or hate them? I love them but some aren’t so keen, so it’s great to find another way to jazz them up a bit. Leeks are part of the onion and garlic family apparently having antibiotic, anti fungal and antiviral properties. Full of niacin, folic acid, riboflavin, pyridoxine, Vitamin A, C,…
