Wellness Punks’ Coconut Blueberry Crumb Muffins

Now that my Whole30 is over, I can do some baking. When Coconut Blueberry Crumb Muffins by Wellness Punks was featured on FastPaleo’s recipe of the day, I knew exactly what do to with the blueberries I found at the supermarket. Holy crap these were tasty. Maybe it’s because they are the first thing I’ve baked since September, but they are totally lush. I think my oven is a bit crap, so I should have cooked them...

Melon ‘Sushi’

Melon and ham. I adore that combination. The sweetness of the melon and the saltiness of the ham – what could be better? Well, how about some cucumber. Just for a change. Labor-wise, these are a pain in the arse. And probably not REALLY worth the effort unless you figure out a better way of doing them. I made a mess. And ended up with about 10. All right, 10 REALLY TASTY little bites of goodness, but just 10 nevertheless. I...

Chocolate Covered Coffee-marinated Bacon

Yes. Really. I’ve made chocolate covered bacon before. It was absolutely brilliant! I decided to step it up a bit with this one… and include another one of my favourite ingredients, coffee! Remember, everything is better with bacon. Ingredients About 10 slices of bacon. Proper stuff, not that weird british crap. 1 cup of cold coffee or there abouts… I had leftover coffee from the machine – although next time i...

Kiwi Sesame Popsicles

I’ve never really been much of a sweets person. Honest. I’m more of a savoury snacker. And rarely indulge in desserts*. I’m also not that big into fruit. And it’s not the low carb thing that’s made me that way – I’ve never really fancied fruit. But for some reason, when I saw this recipe from Civilized Caveman Cooking, it made kiwis look SO GOOD. But then life got in the way for a couple of...

Cookie Dough Brownies from TGIPaleo

My Cookie Dough Brownies don’t look quite like the picture from TGIPaleo. This was ’cause my chocolate chips were actually a bit of dark chocolate all broken up in the food processor that I nicked from my dad’s place. And it sorta melted and turned the ‘cookie dough’ into, well, chocolate cookie dough – rather than chocolate chip. But it was good. I gave a li’l spoonful of it to Steve before...

Strawberry Topped Almond Pound Cake

I made this a few years ago and found the pic while searching thru my iPhoto files. I had posted it up on flickr with the recipe but it’s since all but disappeared because I don’t have a ‘pro’ account anymore. But I managed to grab the recipe and post it here for you to enjoy. I will attempt to make this again without using the Splenda or artificial sweeteners as I really prefer to cook without those these...

Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies

Much to my dismay (and figure), I do like cookies. Luckily, I’m pretty lazy so I prefer to make cakes rather than individual cookies. But when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. Cookies: awesome. Bacon: awesome. Chocolate: awesome. Combined? Divine. So, as per usual, I can’t follow instructions. This is normally not a problem when it comes to cooking. As I like to say “Cooking is art. Baking is...
