A return to Paleo and blogging
Spring has come round again, and here I am, over two years since I first started this blog, and over a year since my last post. I apologise to all my followers for letting the whole thing slide, but it has been a year full of changes for me, so I decided to...

Paleo-ish Mulled Wine
Christmas is here! As far as I'm concerned, from the 1st of December I can definitely start cooking all things Christmassy. I also become obsessed with Christmas crafts - do you like the snowman bauble I made for my friends? I gave them one each as a little...

Not your typical Spag Bolg!
It's not a very handsome picture is it? Definitely not my best photo... because I was just aching to taste the sauce, and not focusing on photography at all! Bolognese sauce is under-rated. Yes, the words "spag bolg" send a sort of confused wave of depressi...

Ideas for Strawberries

My Primal Journey
Hello everyone! It's been a while since I posted a recipe, but I thought I'd check in and let you know what's going on in my kitchen. I started eating primal (that's Paleo + dairy) around mid-April, and I thought that I would share with you what that has me...

Paleo mini quiches
I'm sorry for the lateness of this post. I took some lovely pictures of this recipe, which I have been looking for since last week. I've now conceded that I must have deleted them accidentally, without having saved them onto my computer first... silly me! I...

Paleo blueberry muffins
One of the hardest things for me about being paleo is the lack of bakery goods. Eliminating grains from one's diet means that traditional bread, cakes, muffins and biscuits are out of the question. Healthwise, this is great. But when you crave a muffin?... ...
