Our teeny weeny smallholding (*read barnyard looking back garden) now has two new little ducklings. A friend had a few duck eggs and promised our girls two if they all hatched ok. Fortunately for us it all went well and now we have two Aylesbury ducks – no idea of their gender yet – […]
These I just had to make – Mum used to make a gingerbread loaf when I was a kid and it was one of my favourite things to eat, especially spread with real butter. Mouth is drooling now at the thought. This is another recipe that I modified ever so slightly from Elana Amsterdam’s book, […]
These are great biscuits especially for my girls to take to school. The addition of dark chocolate chips has helped make these biscuits seem ‘normal’ to the point where now they do seem normal. Does that make sense?! I have halved the sugar content from the original recipe, it was an experiment to see if […]
To be honest I always thought I did not, absolutely did not like ratatouille. I have vague recollections of eating it as a kid and thinking ‘yuk gross yuk’. Who knows why, just too vege tasting??!! We started making a version of this recipe a few weeks ago to add to Mike’s work lunches. Cooking […]

First blog post is always the hardest!! Our story is on the Why Primal for Us page and I’m hoping that the blog posts will be a mixture of everyday ups and downs about our paleo story and lots of recipes to help anyone else along in their journey as well!
Finally removed the Christmas tree from the blackboard today as I had been thinking about putting up an inspiring quote.
