Whilst there’s not a religious bone in my body, I have been unwittingly espousing the wonders of Fish Fridays! Unbeknownst to me the religious significance of eating fish on Fridays runs deep. Eating fish on this day is a commemorative nod to the sacrifice of Jesus who gave his life (on a Friday) to redeem [...]
I’ve had fresh tuna twice this month; two rich doses of omega-3s mean a happy brain and heart. There’s been mixed reviews on tuna in recent years; it’s a tricky debate
If it’s love you are looking for this Valentines Day there is nothing not to love about this beautiful Scottish dessert. Even if haggis isn’t your thing this wee lass is sure to hit the spot. Dunedin, our hometown, is the Edinburgh of the south.
These muffins are good, honest food for both the body and soul. They are guaranteed to satisfy any sweet cravings that may plague you whilst simultaneously providing you with belly-filling healthy fats, protein, antioxidants, potassium and vitamin E.
I am all about raw food at the moment. I have recently decided to try and seriously reduce the amount of sugar going into my diet. Come mid-morning you are now more likely to see me snacking on raw carrots and broccoli, whilst sipping water or a green tea, which is a far cry from [...]
This raspberry ice cream cake makes a pretty summer dessert and is delicious served accompanied with raspberry coulis. It is recipe which is well suited to being adapted to whatever fruit you might have on hand, be it fresh or frozen. You could make it using fresh peaches or pineapple, frozen blueberries or strawberries.
You’ve indulged a little too much at Christmas right? Me too. What I find is that you can’t go cold-turkey on the sugar, you still crave that sweet hit mid-morning or mid-afternoon. This sweet treat is guilt-free and will trick your mind, leaving you sat-is-fied

He was a wonderful man who just 5 years ago had finished building his own octagonal house, the wood for which he milled himself, the pipes for which he ran. One look around his home, perched high above a little-used train track, and you got a [...]
This is cheats kulfi. The original version is far more labour intensive and involves gently simmering sweetened, flavoured milk until it evaporates by half leaving a thickened, very dense ice-cream. In this version all the hard work is done for you by using sweetened condensed milk. Just in time for summer
A couple of months ago I was at a friend’s house when I noticed a bowl of batter sitting on their kitchen bench and on top, a single white A4 piece of paper titled ‘German Friendship Cake’. I was fascinated – was this the food equivalent of a chain letter?
Here it is – well the miniature version – bite sized morsels, perfect for sharing with friends over a long leisurely brunch. Banana, bacon and maple syrup are a classic sweet and savoury combination. Enough said, short and sweet just like these little bites!
Come lunchtime, I find that more often than not (if the spoils of last nights meal do not await) I pull a few slices of bread out of the freezer, toast them and then mere minutes later generously spread them with peanut butter (organic and crunchy of course!). Whilst strangely I don’t seem to tire [...]
