Chicken Adobo

I love recipes that require only a few good quality ingredients to taste spectacular.  This is a really fast easy way of doing what is traditionally a simple but slower to prepare dish;  ‘Adobo‘ according to my quick Wiki search means ‘marinade’ but this version (which I adapted from a Sunday Life (The Age on […]

Cheat’s Mushroom Risotto

The ‘cheat’ part of this recipe refers to two things: it’s risotto made in a rice cooker and it was part of this week’s cheat/binge day festivities.  I’ve been using this one day of the week to make the most of high carb treats (i.e. cookie dough, sago pudding) and one of my fav carb […]

Chocolate Almond Cookie Dough

This was one of my slow-carb/4 Hour Body binge day treats.  It’s super easy to make and ready to eat as soon as you mix it all up (hence the ‘cookie dough’ reference – you can just eat it out of the bowl).  Alternately, you can also scoop out chunks of dough, put onto a […]

Bush Tomato Chicken with Sauteed Kale

I love herbs and spices and unsurprisingly one of my favourite places is my local spice shop.  A recent visit resulted in a number of new acquisitions: Roasted Wattleseed, Chipotle Chilli and the rather tasty focus of this recipe; Bush Tomato. “Bush Tomato” refers to plants of the genus Solanum (nightshades) found native in arid […]
