Summer’s Food Events :) Total 1000 ways

Tweet

Gosh, it has been a long time coming this summer…and I’ve been thinking back over some of the foodie events that I’ve been lucky to go to this summer. I don’t go to lots of events, I don’t have time to be honest, but I love being with like-minded people and just talking about [… More …]

Fish and Rice #1 – Kedgeree

Tweet

Did I tell you that apparently I have gallstones? That would explain the nasty pain running in a straight line from my breastbone to between my shoulderblades then… 🙁

Lots of things are making my innards play up, mainly red meat and anything fatty. But Fish and Rice seem pretty safe. And there really [… More …]

Gomokuzushi – a scattering of flavours & colours

Tweet

Sushi.. say that to a lot of people and you will get the comment.. “oh, I don’t like raw fish..” Well that is a shame, but it shouldn’t stop you from enjoying sushi. The point of sushi is the vinegared rice which can be topped with lots of things, not just fish. And even [… More …]

Who said there’s no such thing as a free lunch?

Wheat free I mean….

Rather a nasty flare up of red spottiness on my cheek means I am attempting to clean my blood out with a sort-of-detox.

Stan Laurel’s New York Style Cheesecake

Tweet

So we’ve had the full fat cheesecake. Luscious and creamy and wonderful… and fattening. The Oliver Hardy of the cheesecake world.

It might be all Greek to me, but it’s Totally delicious

Tweet

Total YoghurtYoghurt, the thick creamy Greek kind has long been the mainstay of my breakfast. I would eat it dolloped onto fruit, mixed into muesli or granola, or pure and unadulterated with [… More …]

Slimming World : Tabbouleh – Wheat, Lemon, Mint & Parsley Salad

Tweet Tabbouleh

Tabbouleh, that lovely bright sunshine of a salad, found all over the Middle East, that livens up a Christmas Buffet so well, is also a brilliant addition to any Slimming [… More …]

Slimming World – Key Lime Tartlets

Tweet

It’s my Slimming World meeting tonight, and we are having a tasting session. I wanted to make something a) tasty and sweet, but not too sweet b) suitable for people with food requirements, i.e. no aspartame, at least one of the two with no wheat.

I came up two sweet treats: Key Lime Tartlets [… More …]
