Pasta Carbonara Style

Posted by on October 7, 2017 at 12:35 AM Comments comments (173)

I’m sure any Italian readers are dying a little death so be sure to note this is not a traditional Carbonara, just my version! As I’m dairy free and fantastical about having some vegetables with dinner, this is adapted to include peas. However, my husband hates peas and loves cheese, so he gets a ton of parmesan instead! Her littleness gets everything, peas, cheese, you name it. The only problem with her is that she prefers her parmesan in large chunks so...

Chickpea Burgers

Posted by on September 22, 2017 at 3:15 PM Comments comments (135)

In effort to increase the amount of meat free days, I thought I’d try a chickpea burger. I enjoyed them, my husband called them ‘inoffensive’ and said he’d eat them again, and my daughter actually tried it – so I’m calling that a success . They are vegan and wheat free, however I did use puffed amaranth (I reckon puffed quinoa would work as well), all the other ingredients are pretty standard and available in any supermarket.

Bean and Bacon Stew

So I found myself with a little girl asleep and no idea what to make for dinner for us adults. Himself went for a run and I had an hour to come up with something… I opened my presses and found beans and tomatoes, and my fridge revealed bacon and vegetables, so I threw a few things together and actually really like it! I’d say this will serve 4 adults, or 2 people 2 meals.


- Olive oil

- 1 onion (chopped)

- 5 medallions of bacon (or norma...

Salmon and Greens

Salmon is a good source of protein as well as essential fatty acids – in particular Omega 3. It’s also very versatile and tasty – my 3 year old absolutely loves it too, so it’s usually a crowd pleaser. I made this recipe up on the spot, basically just using what was growing in my garden at the time, but the flavours worked really well together.


- 1 salmon fillet per person (I used 2 for us 3 as they were large)

- Olive oil

Gwen's Chicken Curry

Posted by on September 20, 2015 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (417)

I love chicken curry, but this is definitely the best I've ever made, so I'm delighted to share it with you! I cooked a whole chicken one night, then used the rest for this curry, and made homemade stock of the carcass in my slow cooker - ready to use in soups. Many of the ingredients in this curry are really easy to source, so no trip necessary to an asian market! There are some good anti-inflammatory foods in this dish, such as ginger and turmeric.
