Christmas Ice Cream Pudding- Sugar free option

I revisit this recipe every two to three years. It’s creamy, full of flavour and looks so festive. Especially for those celebrating Christmas during Summer, Christmas Ice Cream Pudding is a winner. Variations for a sugar-free alternative are included.

Gingerbread bliss balls

Last year I made a sugar free Gingerbread for a festive option for afternoon tea, but this year I just wasn’t feeling it. Being somewhat of a bliss ball fanatic I played around in the kitchen a little and came up with these. All the taste of Christmas without the refined sugar and extra carbs. 

Caramelised Onion

Caramelised onion is a favourite for cheese platters, salads, toasties and a myriad of other things. Homemade Christmas gifts are always a nice surprise, caramelised onion works well given in a cute little jar.

Traditional Tiramisu

There is something irresistible about coffee desserts. Traditional tirimisu has to be one of the best. Best assembled a day or so ahead to allow the flavours to infuse, tirimisu is a great option for dinner parties or Christmas Day. Nothing to do on the day except enjoy.

Traditional Tomato & Basil Bruschetta

This simple topping for toasted bread sings of lazy summer afternoons. Traditional tomato and basil bruschetta is always a hit at any gathering or works wonderfully as a topping for grilled meat.

Paleo Rum balls

A healthy alternative to traditional Christmas rum balls around Christmas time. Perfect with an afternoon cuppa or enjoyed as part of the Christmas festivities. The rum in the recipe makes them not quite paleo, but it’s Christmas time, so who can be that fussy! Enjoy

Spiced Pears: next level cheese platter

Adding Spiced pears to a cheese platter will instantly bring a level of elegance and a personal touch. This gorgeous recipe is quick and easy to make but it looks so great you’ll impress yourself. Enjoy over the Christmas season or anytime really.

Gingerbread house- village

There is something fun about making a gingerbread house at Christmas time. Creativity in the kitchen brings people together and the result is a gorgeous gingerbread cottage covered in lollies. It will add Christmas cheer to your lounge room until the time comes to eat it. 

Slow Cooked Thai Beef Massaman Curry

A good Thai beef massaman curry is the epitome of comfort food. It’s the perfect balance of heat, creamy coconut, a bit of chilli zing and tender slow cooked beef.  A perfect curry for all year round.

Nut Free Bliss Ball

Bliss balls are a regular favourite in our house. I try to make them using different seeds and nuts each time to get a variety of nutrients in. These are so great you’d never know they are nut free.

White Chocolate & Caramel Slice

You’ll make this White Chocolate & Caramel Slice again and again. Seriously, every time I make it I think, “how can it be this good!” Give it a crack.
