Supermarket bought bliss balls are generally full of preservatives and refined sugar. Or where not with refined sugar still over 50% sugar with the high level of dried fruits. You can make bliss balls that are higher in fat and lower in sugar which is my preference but these are generally […]
I’ve been experimenting for a while for a nut free, grain free, dairy free “muesli” bar that will hold together for the school lunches. This is the current best attempt so far. The challenges are that what holds most bars together is the grains and loads of sugar plus they’re […]

These delicious balls of yumminess are the best for when you are in the mood for something a bit sweeter. These are definitely “special occasionals” as Chef Dom has taken to calling this type of thing.
We don’t usually make chocolate bliss balls as they’re pretty decadent. But I […]
Who would have thought! Bake your brussel sprouts in the oven to make irresistible Brussel sprout chips. In the past I’d probably discard some of the outer leaves of these veggies – now we turn them into mouthfuls of salty, crunchy goodness.

Have you tried making Kale Chips yet? You must give it a go. It’s really easy and they taste delicious. Lots of ways to flavour them for variation too. These seem to me to win the award for most addictive “superfood” ever. They combine the salty crunch of a potato […]
Generally speaking I don’t miss eating traditional bread at all since “going Paleo” over a year ago. As I write that I’m thinking two things:
First, saying you’ve “gone Paleo” is just never going to sound right is it? But if it’s not Paleo then we need to come up with another way […]
Fritters are one of those fun meals where you can mix and match the ingredients quite a bit and get away with it. Their also pretty quick and easy and great way to use up your leftovers! Having said that we’ve definitely had our share of attempts that turned into a bit of a […]
Fun easy veggie snack for a warm afternoon tea. This was really easy to do and Chef Dom loved it! Plus I felt like a fun mum! Give it a go. All you need is a rip avocado, carrots, a butter (we used sunflower seed butter but you could use any […]
