Flabulous Clam Chowder

  On our honeymoon we had the most amazing clam chowder at Disneyworld. ¬†We loved it so much we ended up going back to the same restaurant several times and ordering it rapidly became a staple of our trip. I’ve never had the nerve to try this recipe at home as I thought the whole…

My Sugar Free Tutti Fruity Jelly Surprise

What is it about Diabetes and Sugar Cravings? My whole life I’ve been a savoury person but since I’ve been told I cant have sugary stuff – its all I’ve wanted. So as I’m now back on the wagon I’ve been trying to come up with something that will manage my cravings but not send…

My Flabulous Cottage Pie

Short and sweet this week as, yes you guessed it, we are both hungover after a Flabulous Saturday night out. I’m sure you’ve all by now seen a pattern which means comfort food and today that means cottage pie!! I knew last night would be a big one so I got prepared and made this…

No Added Sugar Banana Bread

I’ve been a foodie for as long as I can remember but it’s not until the last year or so that I’ve really got into baking. It all started with making a birthday cake for my nephew’s 1st birthday that really got me in to the chemistry involved in baking. I really started to make…
