We were invited to a friends house for dinner and to watch the Toronto Blue Jays team lose yet again. Boo Hoo. I had some time that afternoon so I whipped up a batch of these tasty little guys. These low carb (3g net) little bites are easy to make and [...]
These little meatballs are virtually carb free but full of flavour. Experiment with different flavours by adding a combination of different herbs and spices or even cheese. I found these meatballs cooked better after being chilled for half an hour in the fridge. You can still bake them straight away [...]
This scalloped potato recipe was an instant hit. I used Lancashire White Cheese instead of the cheeses listed and it was great. Use any cheese that strikes your fancy. A great opportunity to try something new. There are 19.6g net carbs, 6.1g protein and 9 Weight Watchers points per serving.
With only 4 weeks left till summer holidays, our lives will be getting busier and finding time to make dinner may become a little more challenging. To save time you can use pre-made meatballs (chicken, beef or veggie) from the grocery store's freezer section or make them fresh from your [...]
This dish is super healthy but doesn’t compromise on fabulous taste. With only 1.9g of net carbs it is super easy and suitable for both type 1 and type 2 diabetics and those following a Weight Watchers diet. As an added bonus, I guarantee your kids will like it too.
My mother was a big baker when I was a kid. She is German and I think Germans are born with the incredible ability to bake running through their veins. One of my favourite treats she would make almost on a weekly basis was coconut macaroons, rich chocolate macaroons. Excuse [...]
This is the time of year to get your fill of Asparagus and I seem to be using it in almost every meal I make just lately. You know it is spring when these funny looking veggies make their appearance at the super market. Only young asparagus shoots are commonly [...]

Keralan, regionally referred to as Keralam, is a state in the south-west region of India on the Malabar coast. Coconuts grow in abundance in Kerala, and consequently, coconut kernel, (sliced or grated) coconut cream and coconut milk are widely used in dishes for thickening and flavouring.

Adults who had multiple small meals every day tended to eat better, and weight less, than those who had fewer but larger meals, in a recent study. People eating fewer meals tended to eat the most at night, and to drink alcohol with meals, both of which might contribute to [...]
This Malaysian egg curry is my obsession right now and it requires only steamed (basmati) rice to serve. Traditionally, the eggs would be hard boiled, but this dish is far more delicious when they are a little soft inside. To soft boil the eggs, cover them with cold water in [...]
I love refreshing desserts and this is definitely that. The combination of sugarless Jello and whipped cream blend makes for a sophisticated dessert. It reminds me a bit of trifle minus the high carb jelly roll and high fat custard cream. Don't get me wrong trifle is delicious but its [...]
