This is so incredibly simple, I'm not even sure it warrants being called a recipe really, but it's something I experimented with recently when I fancied something sweet yet wholesome as a snack that was l
Is this week flying by or going super slow for you? I'm experiencing both depending on how well my kids are behaving day to day over this half term holiday.
Wow, I made a big ones of these babies and ate it all to myself. Admittedly it was PMT week (oh joy) so I was craving chocolate but in all fairness PMT has been better than ever since my transition to eating a more low carb way.
As it's Valentine's Day today, I wanted to write a piece on self-love here, the sweet, sweet love that will liberate you.
As a keen baker, I've always been a huge fan of the Great British Bake Off and one of my all time favourite contestants has to be the wonderful Nadyia Hussein. A fellow Leeds girl, I loved her warm, dow...

I'm a real Mulberry Girl. In fact, you could probably say I'm obsessed. So obsessed that my 35th birthday cake was in the shape of my trusty Bayswater.
This post is a bit of fun, people. Obviously I wouldn't change my procreating ways for the world. My boys are my world and life is enriched, funnier and more fun because of those bambinos... But sometimes, sometimes I miss the more selfish, carefree pre-kid days I enjoyed and thought you guys might relate too.
I've had a long-standing, fluctuating relationship with a low carb way of eating, starting with the most extreme introduction to it whilst at uni aged 19 when the Dr Atkins phenomenon had taken hold, before moving on to The South Beach Diet, return...

So whilst there is still natural sugar in these dark chocolate coconut bites with the Medjool dates and dark chocolate, they do make for a healthier, less sweet alternative to standard chocolate bars and are no doubt, better for you than an actual Bounty b...
We all get overwhelmed, huh? I'm feeling it right now, so much so I could just go lie down and enjoy a disco nap despite it being 4.10pm!

I'm endlessly asked how I've reached a place where I feel consistently confident and the answer is, if I'm honest, (Honest Mum here, right?) I don't ALWAYS feel confident, no one can constantly feel confident in themselves or their abilities and have faith in their potential, but yes, for the most part, I do feel confident in who I am and what I do.
Here's a recipe for you, just like mama used to make in the 80's, except it's absolutely nothing like that (soz Mum)-for this is the millennials' healthier equivalent to the sweet rice cakes you would inhale as a kid!

As it's pancake day I'm re-sharing this classic post featuring my fluffy gluten-free Aemrican pancakes. Little pancakey clouds we like to call them in this house! OK I like to call them that!

These tasty, filling fish cakes skew the usual fare so often made with potatoes and have egg and spelt in the mixture instead. I like to add fresh red chilli into mine and my husband's but you can of course...
