Chocolate Salty Balls

I am more of a savory girl than a sweet…..(all puns intended) but there is a certain time of the month that sweet is needed.  Maybe I crave sweets in some attempt to replace the sweet part of me that goes missing around the same time I start to crave it…..maybe in every life a […]

Paleo Apple Cinnamon Muffins

I will come clean right from the start.  This recipe is not my own……in that it is a very slightly altered version of the absolutely amazing Apple Spice Coffee Cake by Danielle at Against all Grain. My kids will often say over a meal they particularly like “YUM! Mummy is the best cooker”.  I won’t […]

Sweet and Salty Coconut Popcorn

Healthier Pot du Creme with Raspberries

C is for Cookie and Cookie Pig

Gluten Free Cheesecake

I am not a huge junk food person….I think I have mentioned that before.  I am not a fan of low quality anything.  I am a terrible snob that way.  It isn’t a matter of price…in fact the cheaper the better.  It is purely a matter of quality.  You can keep all your shitty chocolate […]
