Maple Nut Clusters

I know I haven’t blogged recently but I have been a bit unwell again. Those who are familiar with POTS are aware that we need to be careful and pace ourselves to make sure that we don’t overdo things. With it currently being winter and bugs everywhere, I seem to have just been catching them left, right and centre and so needed to take some time off away from the blog to use all my spoons (those unfamiliar with the spoon theory can check it out here) on getting through each day. Now that I am back I am happy to share this tasty little treat with all of you!

This treat is so quick to make (preparation is less than five minutes and cooking time about twelve minutes), it is definitely one of my quickest salty snacks/meals yet. It also hits a nice little sugar spot as well as you can’t really taste the salt! Continue reading

Meatballs and Vegetable Soup (One Pot Meal)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I am always on the lookout for simple, easy to make, tasty soups. There is something about soups that I just love. They are always so enjoyable to eat – they have such a nice texture, whether completely smooth and creamy, or nice and chunky.

I came across a recipe for meatballs in vegetable soup. This recipe is so healthy (not just by my normal standards but by those who actually have healthy eating standards), and tastes soo good – it has already made it into the dinner rotation. Continue reading

Spinach and Feta Turnovers

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA This is another trade mark dish of mine. It’s full of flavour, vibrant colours, feta (who doesn’t love feta?) and looks great. Best of all, you most definitely will not taste the salt in this one.

This recipe is an entrée, a snack and a main meal (well, it has become one now that I’m unwell). It can be eaten right away, stored in the fridge or frozen and eaten at anytime you feel like reheating it (directions on this below). Continue reading

Salted Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’ve been munching on pumpkin seeds a lot lately as it’s an easy snack – but I wanted to get more flavour into them. After having a little think, I figured that the flavouring of the zucchini chips recipe would taste soo good on pumpkin seeds so I set about recipe testing.

The first few batches didn’t work out too well – to be honest, they just kept burning. But after turning down the heat, and altering how long I left the seeds in the oven, I finally perfected the recipe and it was time to share it with all of you! Continue reading
