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 love my version of a traditional adobo recipe.
It’s so tasty and hearty. We mainly eat it in winter in the colder months, and it’s lovely to drink up the juice or to serve it with rice or mash vegetables so that it absorbs all of the goodness.

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 shared a while ago now Peanut Butter Cookies, which my kids love however as they both go to nut free schools they can’t take them to school. So, as a substitute I started making them as a lunchbox treat with tahini instead of peanut butter.
They are super quick, easy, tasty and made with just 4 ingredients.

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.

A friend of mine shared this recipe with me quite a while ago, and like many of my recipes from the past year or so, it’s been sitting there waiting to be released to the wide world. She always goes that extra mile when we catch up or when Bella visits to ensure that we have delicious gluten free treats. It’s so delightful! Continue reading Peanut Butter Cookies
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.
