Chocolate Banana Breakfast Loaf

So, I quite often make pancakes for breakfast, but in this Brisbane heat, I really did not want to stand over the stove today. So I thought I’d make my Chocolate pancake mixture into a loaf! (more…)


Epic Amazing Chocolate Fudge Salty Caramel Brownies (Gluten Free, Grain Free )

Hey guys, I’ve got another good one for you. It’s Saturday night, and you know, the party animal that I am, thought I’d do something wild and make brownies. (more…)

Choc Covered Nut Bars

So I’ve gotten into the bad habit of buying nut bars in a pack from the supermarket as an easy on-the-run snack. And lets face it, I probably still will at times, they are the least offensive of the snack bars in my opinion. But I thought I might at least try and make a healthier home made version. An dude, this is a winner!


Pickled Garlic

So, I just did this.


I had a few spare heads of garlic, because we get these food deliveries called Hello Fresh, and they give you a whole head every week.You can use it just like fresh garlic, but I remember eating pickled garlic straight out of a jar on a regular basis. It was just supermarket shelf stuff, so surely home made has to be better right?!

Now, as you know, I’m not one to be particular about  following recipes, so I read a few and got a general idea.

This jar has
1.5 heads of garlic (such a pain to peel, hence only a small jar to start with)
1 piece of lemon rind
A few twigs of thyme
A few mustard seeds
A few peppercorns
A generous few twists of Himalayan salt
Topped up with white vinegar

I sterilized the jar, and I’ll leave it for a couple of weeks to see what turns out.  I’m a bit excited! I always feel so accomplished putting something homemade into a jar!
