Freezing Herbs and Other Uses For Ice Cube Trays


Sainsbury's are currently promoting and encouraging people to get the most out of their freezer and have assembled some great ideas, inspiration and practical tips for simple freezer solutions as well as some recipes to help you get the most out of your freezer.  All this information is over at Sainsbury's Love Your Freezer Hub. Here there is a section called "8 ingenious uses for an ice cube tray" and I'd like to add another idea to this section ... freezing herbs in an ice cube tray.

My January 2015 TVK Box


As usual, my box arrived bang on time and was opened with huge excitement. You'd think that after all these months I would be in less of a frenzy but no, the hysteria is still present! So what's inside the first box of the year?

Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts, Red Onion and Mushrooms GF SCD


I know we're past Christmas and this could be viewed as a Christmas side dish but I really thought I should share the recipe with you since fresh Brussels Sprouts are still available and this dish is delicious! Sprouts are a bit like marmite aren't they? You either love them or hate them! Personally I love them!

A Vegetarian SCD Christmas


I thought a few of you may be interested in some of the food that was eaten over the Christmas fortnight this year when we were catering for someone on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. It was interesting to see some of the food he created too.

Stuffed Peppers with Cauliflower Rice - Suma Bloggers Network GF SCD


I'm so excited to have been asked to be part of the Suma Bloggers Network and delighted to be able to share my first recipe as part of this network with you. Since I love to experiment with grain free cooking so that as many of my recipes as possible are suitable for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, I've used cauliflower rice in this recipe instead of ordinary rice. I've been making cauliflower rice for some time now but apparently, cauliflower rice is going to be one of the trendiest foods of 2015, have you tried it yet?

Christmas is nearly here so I thought I'd share with you some of the recipes which seem to be most popular around Christmas time. I'm way behind with my planning and cooking this year, I hope I manage to have everything done in time but this post will help me to find all the food I need to prepare.

My December TVK Box


I'm very happy with my December TVK box, especially the item in the front left corner! Even though this is my twelfth box, I'm still bursting to open it and discover what's inside! If you like surprises and haven't yet checked out The Vegan Kind, they do ship world-wide so if you're interested, please check out their website.
