What is your cooking style?
I cook very simple, real food recipes. All of the recipes featured on my website use accessible wholefood ingredients and are free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar. Many of my recipes also cater for special diets such as low FODMAP, Paleo, egg free and nut free.
Favourite Kitchen Essentials?
I can’t live without my high speed blender! I use it for so many things from homemade sauces, dips, cakes, smoothies, healthy ice cream and my sugar free banana bread (recipe below).
One of my favourite recipes is my sugar free banana bread. It’s so easy to make and uses just 6 simple ingredients. The recipe is free from gluten, dairy, eggs and nuts. Vegan friendly.
