This brownie is amazing. If you don’t tell people, kids and adults, it’s paleo (Gluten Free, Dairy free and refined sugar free) they would NEVER know, and will be asking for seconds.
I’ve been really struggling to get my kids to willingly eat vegies lately. They might look like little angels, but come mealtime and they grow devil horns. We will often have Japanese, and they LOVE gyoza. So I figured if I could stuff different kinds… Read More
I had heaps of basil (cause I planted heaps in my new veggie patch and can’t keep up with the major over-supply!).
With a bag full of kale, and plenty of nuts to choose from I set about experimenting with different quantities of each to come up with this great Paleo, gluten free and dairy free pesto recipe.
One of the things I believe strongly in is playing around with recipes.
Taking someone else’s amazing creation and tweaking it a little, or combining it with another part of a different recipe.
That’s exactly what I’ve done here!
Instead I made the cocoa balls as well as some dairy, gluten and sugar free blueberry muffins. The blueberry muffins won’t make it to Hey Bernice, they tasted like they were free from all those things, as well as the enjoyment factor!
The raw cocoa balls have made it, and should’ve made it here about a year ago (which is when I took this photo below) they are a winner…
Does everyone store their Christmas decorations in the highest, most out-of-reach place in their house? It makes complete sense, you would happily bet money that you are not going to need them for at least another eleven months when you put them there!
I have been retrieving my boxes and bags of decorations from those far-reaching places. However I did purchase my new favourite Christmas decoration when I was recently on holiday in Queensland… which could have been prompted by the view from my room…
Actually let me go back a little further. Before I went on holiday, I was rediculously busy (which resulted in me needing that holiday, and why I haven’t been giving you guys much love). I decided not to return to my corporate job in Melbourne and started a new business (all in the last 3 months!).
I will write a detailed post about The Inkling Effect, styling my home office, and what I’ve been cooking for my workshops… but until then, those interested can read all about my new little baby The Inkling Effect here: http://www.theinklingeffect.com.au
The details of my new business can wait… we were talking about Christmas decorations – I do love a good tangent though!
So I bought a gorgeous drift wood wreath on the Sunshine coast in Queensland, and packed it in my suitcase to bring home for our door… and it was worth all the effort.
I couldn’t help myself, and added the star fish and turquoise ribbon to give it even more of a coastal Christmas theme.
