I haven’t shared too many of my homemade cordial recipes yet. I started to make Pineapple Cordial as we got a few pineapples in our box divvy that were either dry or very ripe. It’s a great way to even use up pineapple that has been cut up and not eaten.
I love making cordials in summer! We are having such a warm spring that I’ve started to make fruit cordials earlier this year.

I often get asked what herb essential oils I use in the kitchen, and how much. Well, to answer the question simply, there are quite a few herbs in the dōTERRA range.
Let’s go through my favourite dōTERRA herb essential oils.
I call them my 1 drop wonder oils, as less is always best.

I find it incredibly fustrating that alot of the dairy free products on the market also contain corn products. Likewise, when they display a ‘may contain dairy’ statement on them. I’m very sensitive to dairy, so I avoid them all.
Coconut-based cheese is one example of this. However, I can get my hands on 2 different types of coconut based cheese which is gluten, dairy and corn free with no may contain statements.

I’ve been making this extra citrus version for a while now, but really love to make my recipes quite a few times before I officially share and release them.
You will see from the different flavours of crinkle cookies that I love making them. Mainly because they taste amazing and because they are gluten, dairy and corn free. They are also quick and easy to make up if your having last minute guests, or people pop in. I call them my slap happy macarons.

I have been making this fruit loaf for many years. I created it as an alternative to gluten free bread to have for breakfast, lunch or just as a sweet snack/treat.
It’s easy to adapt to make it taste slightly different each time as it depends on what dried fruit I have in my pantry or what I can get at the supermarkets. I mainly use cranberries, but sometimes when I see a dried mixed berry blend called ‘anti-oxidant blend’ I put that in it. I usually don’t make a special trip to the supermarket, so if I’ve only got currants or sultanas I use them in place of the cranberries.

Brazilian Cheese Puffs were one of the first things the lovely Mel from ThermoHead showed me how to make. Head over to Facebook and give Mel a like and follow but if instagram is more your thing, you will find her at Thermoheadmel.
Once Mel left me to my own device, and I started to use my thermomix on my own, I found that I couldn’t recreate the recipe. They were either raw or would stick to the pan, so I started tweaking the recipe til I came up with my own version.

I don’t like buying commercially brought cordial for my kids. However, I still treat them to cordial that I make. It’s still loaded with sugar, but it’s a controlled amount of sugar. It also does not contain anything artificial added like colours or flavours.

Handmade chocolates making lovely gifts to family, friends, colleagues.
Often when we think of handmade items for Christmas we opt towards crafting or DIY products, but maybe this Christmas (and beyond) think about the gift of some tasty handmade raw chocolates simply made with 3 ingredients.

I love infusing salt with essential oils. We often don’t have the dried herb, and the essential oil version is a cost effective way of obtaining the flavour with maximum therapeutic benefits.

Well, if you thought my Oregano & Lemon Dressing recipe was super easy and quick, then you will love this one.
