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

Smoked Salmon Spaghetti

Hello everyone! I’m back after a month away from blogging.

Even though I haven’t been blogging for long, I just needed a bit of time off to look after myself before I came back with more recipes for all of you. As many of my readers with POTS would understand, it’s important we don’t take on too much and push our body too hard and overload. Continue reading

Marshmallows dipped in salted caramel and chocolate

I wasn’t going to write about this recipe for a while but this week I have felt quite fatigued and been sick with a cold so I decided to pull it forward a few weeks. I hope you all enjoy it!

I made these marshmallows as part of an Easter gift to my friends and family and they are AMAZING. I think the best way to describe the flavour would be like a rocky road or marshmallow Easter bunny.

I cannot recommend this recipe more highly. Besides the fact that they end up looking insanely awesome they just taste epic. Yes I am using epic as a measure of flavour as there really isn’t much more of a way to explain just how good they taste. The marshmallow is dipped in salted caramel, then it’s dipped in chocolate which hardens. Then you can eat it in one bite or in two. It just … it’s just the perfect treat.

Toffee Pretzel Slice

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These are quite possibly the most amazing things I think I have ever made.

I have had to make a few batches just to … ‘perfect’ them … yes … that is what I will go with … even though I haven’t altered the recipe in the slightest.

This recipe is just the most heavenly treat. It is a very POTS friendly recipe due to the pretzels plus the additional salt flakes on top – but amazingly it doesn’t taste salty at all.

Enjoy!

Banana Cake

Banana cake

It only feels right to start the blog off with the one of my absolute favourite recipes.

In the good ‘old’ days before I was sick my friends and family knew me for my banana cake recipe. So it makes sense that this was the first recipe that I set to work altering so that I could eat it knowing that it was ‘good’ for me as it had extra salt in it! Continue reading
