The Great Jerky Experiment – Update

I’ve been making jerky on and off for a year now.  I still always worry that it wont turn out properly, and I’ll kill someone because they’ve eaten not-quite-dehydrated-enough ‘raw’ meat.  Mortality count at the time of posting: 0. In one of my earlier posts I hypothesised that maple syrup (or sweetener in general) was […]

I <3 Mayo

This Whole 30, I subscribed to the Whole30 daily email in an attempt to keep me on track.  There have been some very useful tips and today’s email (Day 17) has some fantastic ideas for what to do with one of my favourite food accessories … home-made olive oil mayonnaise.  I often end up eating […]

Ras el Chipotle Meatballs

It’s been a looong time since I last made meatballs.  I remember them being a bit fiddly, so I usually just end up making a bolognaise-type sauce with mince instead.  Fortunately, I decided to give them another go, and it turns out they can be quite easy and worth the little bit of extra effort.

Whole30 Day 2

Nine cups of vegetables per days is A LOT of vegetables.  I still need to go and stock up on brightly coloureds (it was 40C/104F yesterday so I wasn’t going anywhere).  Today I’m off to my folks, where my mum has a nice big food processor that’s perfect for making Kale Pesto and Watermelon and […]

Cabbage and Broccoli ‘Slaw

I’m trying to increase my intake of sulphurous vegetables upon the advice of Dr Terry Wahls (excellent TEDx talk here).  Terry has Multiple Sclerosis and is an advocate of Paleo, but with a greater emphasis on eating lots of non-starchy vegetables – at least 9 cups per day (6+ if you’re a girl) – comprising […]

Dont Drink The Little Cauliflowers

First Lesson of the Week: winging it when doing DIY fermented milk probably won’t kill you but success can be more readily assured if you do your homework first.  I’ve been making what I thought was Kefir for the past 3 weeks.

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 […]
