Smokey Bacon Jam!

Guys – do I have a treat in store for you today!!

BACON JAM!

Yes, you did read that right! Bacon Jam is probably one of the most amazing food creations that I have come across, its sweet, its savoury and its smoky all at the same time. Basically it is the best jam you will come across, and no longer will you waste your time with that strawberry nonsense ;)

Thin Crust Cauliflower Pizza!

Last night I made an experiment in my kitchen – an experiment which had fantastic results. I made a pizza without a trace of flour/starch/gluten! I made a cauliflower pizza.

For those of you who are familiar with the LCHF lifestyle – this will be nothing new for you. However for those of you who aren’t, you may ask yourself ‘what is a cauliflower pizza’? Keep Reading

Delicious Fried Fish Curry

Last Friday I made possibly the easiest and most delicious curry I have made to-date. It was one of those dishes, that when I tasted it, I thought to myself – did I really make that?!  It was delicious, and I was excited. Yes, I get incredibly excited when something that tastes so good is made by myself  – spatula in hand I did a little jig and then than called C over to taste it. I expected him to break out into a little dance too – naturally that didn’t happen, but he did agree it was delicious. Keep Reading

Decadent Flourless Chocolate Cake

Well – I seem to be on a bit of a baking roll at the moment as I have yet another superb baking recipe for you today! A very rich and decadent chocolate cake – and what is even more surprising to me, is that there is absolutely no flour in it.

Please don’t judge it by this terrible photo – as the photo really does not do this cake justice! I was rushing to serve it to my guests that I only took this miserable shot!

The Ultimate Brownie Recipe!

photo 1 (22)Thanks to a good friend of mine here in Brasilia – I have come across the BEST and the EASIEST brownie recipe that does not include adding oil & water and ‘just stir’ (aka Betty Crocker). These bad boys are everything that a brownie should be, fudgy and dense in the middle and slightly crispy and flakey on top. Keep Reading

Chicken Burgers with Asian Greens

Happy Friday everyone!

Here is just a quick recipe I wanted to share with you to kick start your weekend! Although, it is so straight-forward it is actually perfect for a mid-week meal. So if like me, you plan your week’s dinner menu the week before, make sure you add this one on to your list :)

The chicken burgers are so juicy and flavourful you will wonder why you don’t make them more often, and the asian greens are so versatile, you can use whatever vegetables you can get your hands on, as the dressing is the real star that will steal the show! Keep Reading

Savoury Mediterranean Muffins!

Life has been pretty hectic over here for the last few months! When I haven’t been accompanying C on his business travels, I have been focusing on trying to set up a meaningful life for myself in Brasilia! Getting involved in different activities, trying to make new friends, looking for work, studying Portuguese – the list seems to be ever growing, along with my guilt – as The Travelling Chopsticks has fallen slightly by the wayside!

However to kick-start my blogging escapades again, I thought I would start May with this incredibly easy and delicious Mediterranean muffin recipe! I just love the fact that they are savoury and I wonder why there is not more of a demand for savoury muffins in the world!
