Lemon & Mascarpone Puddings

LEMON & MASCARPONE PUDDINGS These deliciously light and tasty puddings are the perfect dessert to follow a spicy meal.  The fresh taste of lemon zest with the mascarpone topping is difficult to beat.  These little individual puddings are made and baked within minutes in the microwave, but they can also be baked in the oven

Chocolate Olive Oil Cake

CHOCOLATE OLIVE OIL CAKE This deliciously rich, moist and gooey cake is to die for.  It is incredibly simple to make and, I am sure it will now become a staple, go-to, cake recipe in our household.  I’ve converted the recipe from a regular Sainsbury’s cookbook, so it’s now incredibly keto-friendly and each slice has

Doughnuts

DOUGHNUTS Spring is coming; the nights are getting lighter, the sun is beginning to break through, the snowdrops, daffodils and crocus are erupting from the ground and I wanted to make something that I could nibble on whilst sitting in the garden with a cup of coffee – and here it is; Doughnuts!  These doughnuts

Beginning and Ending Christmas Dinner Treats

At a recent Christmas dinner with the family, these dishes made greater impact than the entree.  Included in this blog posting are what I served to begin and end the meal, namely Christmas Wassail with Dark Rum and Eggnog Crème Brûlée, along with a bonus recipe also served at this event: Bacon Wrapped Maple Glazed

Kitchen Tapestry: A Weekday Christmas Brunch

Wanting to show our appreciation to some great folks who helped us with a recent household relocation across a couple of state lines, My Number One Fan and I elected to do a festive Christmas themed brunch which was really more skewed toward breakfast fare. The menu included Apple-Cranberry Juice Mocktails, two hors d’oeuvres of

Coffee & Walnut Cake

COFFEE & WALNUT CAKE This lovely, rich, traditional cake is my Partner’s favourite.  The combination of good coffee and hearty walnuts is a compelling combination for any afternoon tea or anytime sweet treat. You can make the cake with or without the topping (or you can use the topping as a filler in the middle

Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake

DARK CHOCOLATE FUDGE CAKE This chocolate cake is rich and dark, moist and hearty.  The secret ingredient is black treacle and the topping of 100% black chocolate ganache is a must for real chocolate lovers.  Rich and decadent, you’ll be able to serve this to your guests whether on a keto/low-carb diet or not.  They’ll

Mango Coulis

MANGO COULIS My favourite fruit is Mango, particularly Thai mango.  There’s simply nothing nicer than mango sorbet, mango coulis, fresh ripe cold mango pieces from the fridge on a hot, summer’s day.  It’s difficult on a keto or low-carb diet to incorporate much fruit as most fruits (including mango) contain so much natural sugar.  However,

Ginger Cake with Lemon Icing

GINGER CAKE with LEMON ICING This lovely, serve-anytime, recipe has been adapted, to be low-carb and keto-friendly, from Saint Delia’s recipe.  It’s a firm family favourite in our house.  My kids grew up on this cake and I’ve managed to keep it as near as possible to the original.  The key for me is using

Vanilla Ice Cream

VANILLA ICE CREAM Summertime means that you have to have ice cream right?  I was never a lover of ice cream as a child, but now that I make my own, I can think of little better than rich, creamy ice cream with a selection of toppings to suit your mood.  So here is my

Coconut Ice Cream

COCONUT ICE CREAM Summertime means that you have to have ice cream right?  I was never a lover of ice cream as a child, but now that I make my own, I can think of little better than rich, creamy ice cream with a selection of toppings to suit your mood.  I found it difficult
