Mango mint madness for a moist summers day

February 15th, 2010

It is HOT… not only is it hot it is humid too…. since when is Sydney at 90-96% humidity for days on end? Thank goodness for the rains to break the cycle over the weekend.. and yet, suddenly I feel as if our whole city has up and migrated to the tropics. Eating food seems […]

Healthy chicken and red bean quesadillas

November 11th, 2009

A very cost effective old favourite from University days, my housemates used to make this for me, and I loved it! Of course, back then we used to pile on the cheese, and I reckon we might have even added a slice of butter for good measure — it surprise me though, to find that […]

Fruit salad

October 22nd, 2009

Exquisitely simple, yet so good. Don’t let anyone lead you to believe that the vessel you eat of does not make a difference to taste. I love putting something like this together in a cocktail glass for Dan – it makes that after dinner snack that little bit more special – who would have thought […]

Wholegrain blueberry & apple pancakes

October 22nd, 2009

The perfect way to start a weekend – I adapted our favourite banana pancakes recipe, this time sweetening the mixture with the grated apple. No added sugar, but it really doesn’t need it – round it off with piles of fresh fruit and some fat free, sugar free natural yoghurt. After that, all you need […]

Roast Pumpkin and Lentil Soup

July 10th, 2009

This thick warming soup will surprise you with how satisfying it is to the wintery appetite! Freeze some and take it to work, or defrost it for a lazy midweek meal. I cooked this alongside making a roast on the weekend, and the frozen portions were not in the freezer long before I was craving […]

Baked lemon and ricotta cheesecake

July 6th, 2009

Cheesecake … low GI? Low fat? Ok for a diabetic diet? You wouldn’t think so, but in small serves, and by altering the ingredients a little, you can make a very tasty dessert. Cheesecake is normally made with cream cheese, cream, eggs, sweet biscuits and butter with variations. I’ve changed the cream cheese to ricotta, […]

Mushroom Soup

July 5th, 2009

This recipe is loosely based on a recipe by Damien Pignolet for mushroom broth with herb cream crust. I have made the original version, and it is very tasty. It is made with creme fraiche and cream which is a very special treat, but not great for every day. This much more cholesterol friendly version […]

Banana pancakes

June 26th, 2009

Cafe pancakes are a real no-no for low GI and diabetic diets for a number of reasons: processed white flour, high sugar and usually fried in generous amounts of butter and served with syrups. Delicious, but the huge spike in blood sugars may leave you feeling irritable and rotten afterwards if you are diabetic. This […]
