So I may have let things slide a bit, apologies! Since February the cake business has gone bonkers and I have just not had a minute to regroup and get to writing. I'm not complaining, who knew that my obsession with making cupcakes would ever blossom into such amazing things?! Cake classes are becoming a … Continue reading Long time no write!

Ok, I'm going to admit this now ... I had no idea how high in calories ribs were until I've just come to work out the recipe! These were so yummy my friend and I polished off a whole rack between us which I think would've worked out approx 600 calories each, as it happens … Continue reading Low Carb Pork Ribs
I find this dish (dare I say it) better than my old chum made with potatoes! It's creamy and comforting and down right delicious, rather hard to stick to portion control I'll be honest. I tend to use half a celeriac at a time and keep the leftovers for lunch the following day but the … Continue reading Low Carb Celeriac Dauphinoise

The same as I did at the beginning they all think it's another fad diet with restrictions and misery that is … Continue reading Keto Chicken and Bacon Parcels
I’m back with another easy peasy soup recipe for you! If you’re wanting a really low carb soup then omit the onion but as a generous portion of this, with the onion, it’s only 4g carbs which I think is rather wonderful! Ingredients 1 head of celery (trimmed and chopped approx 400g) 100ml single cream … Continue reading Low carb celery soup
One of my favourite go-to dishes is a fish pie, there’s something so homely about it and I’m a massive fan of fish which I guess helps! Usually I would add peas but I discovered, to my horror, that they aren’t keto-friendly ... slightly mortified but I’ll get over it eventually! You can use whichever … Continue reading Low Carb Fish Pie
