Easy peasy raw blueberry and maple syrup ice cream

Now I’ve gone back to work, I haven’t nearly as much time to cook, and already, I can feel corners being cut and an increase in grabbable carbs settling around my now grabbable midriff. So it’s rare of a weeknight for kids’ puddings to be any more complex than fruit and a square or two of… Continue reading Easy peasy raw blueberry and maple syrup ice cream

More experiments in sugar-free baking

I’ve already fallen off the sugar (and booze) wagon, since I started an anti-candida diet last week, caving in to G&Ts and some of Tom’s delicious¬†sourdough this week. But there’s only one thing for it when you fall off the horse, and that’s to climb back on it. And so to aid me in sticking… Continue reading More experiments in sugar-free baking

But when you have kids, and especially when you’re not working, it’s much easier to see why bread is such a staple part of the western diet. It’s… Continue reading When in doubt, bake bread

Raw homemade chocolate “bounce balls” – for monkeys who like to climb

I’m not much of a cook. If it can’t be made in one pot, I’d rather not bother. And although I can bake a good loaf of bread, cakes and meals much more than homemade soup are very much my other half’s domain. While I can be haphazard in the kitchen, especially when I’m busy,… Continue reading Raw homemade chocolate “bounce balls” – for monkeys who like to climb
