Festive Salad with lemon dressing

This salad looks festive with most ingredients in it red and green and the golden nuts. The prefect salad to have at the Christmas dinner table with either meat or seafood, and the lemon dressing helps cut through the fat of the meat. It looks impressive and is pretty healthy too. I made it for…

Jamie’s Turkey Modified

So some of Jamie Olivers recipes are healthy, whilst some are totally indulgent and covered in oil and loaded with butter. I’ve made this slightly healthier by leaving out a few ingredients etc and adding in some others to make it gluten free and fructose friendly.  Ingredients: 5 kg turkey (or whatever size you need…

Super Boozy Rum Ball Slice

I tried  to make these healthy and it just didn’t work! I accidentally put too much rum in and then it didn’t taste sweet enough. So I melted approx 100g chocolate to pour a thin layer over the top and made a slice of it, to sweeten it up a bit. It’s slightly healthier using…

Broccoli, Cranberry and Walnut Salad

I went to a lovely 1st Birthday party on Sunday for the very special Charlee Rose and I heard some of the ladies there talking about this yummy broccoli salad. So I tasted it and it was awesome!
