Written by Nick L. Pfeffer B.EX CEPS (bio at bottom of post) Some claim that the paleolithic diet is the solution to a vast range of ailments; from obesity to cardiovascular disease and diabetes, and even autoimmune disorders. Have they really found the answer?
Lamb is delicious all year round, but now that autumn is well and truly upon us in the Northern hemisphere, we do appreciate a hot roast even more! This wonderful roast lamb shoulder is slow cooked in the oven in order to really lure out all the yummy flavours. The meat is so tender that […]
Sweets for my sweet.. It is not always easy for children (or adults for that matter) with sensitivities and allergies to feel “normal”. A lot of our sense of belonging stems from participation in activities along with our peers, and food plays a huge role in most social gatherings. For children especially, the sense of […]
No Christmas without gingerbread.. ..and a really truly great recipe is a must! Gingerbread really is the flavour of the season. Shops are full of it, cafe’s are full of it, even your favourite coffee’s full of it these days. If you don’t mind I’d like to strip it back to basics. Back to my grandmas […]
We call them “Peppernøtter” which means peppernuts. They contain pepper and they’re shaped like nuts, so why not.

I want to introduce you to the worlds Best & Easiest breakfast!
My Favourite “Melt-In-Your-Mouth” Swede/Rutabaga Cake! (Gluten Free, Dairy-Free, Failsafe, low FODMAP)
I just have to stop everything I’m doing for a minute, and share this fantastic cake with you! A lot of people either don’t “understand” swede, don’t use it, don’t know it or think that only cows eat it. I have grown up with it and I seriously LOVE it! It is so healthy, very […]
*** Bring forth the raisins and the nuts Tonight All-Hallows’ Spectre struts Along the moonlit way. From ghoulies and ghosties And long-leggedy beasties And things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us, but come yee with thy horrid fright, to meet with all your klan tonight, let’s feast this eve away! ***
My Favorite Dessert “Karamellpudding” – a Norwegian take on Creme Caramel or Flan – Made dairy and gluten free!
My grandma used to be the undefeated boss of “Karamellpudding”. Her trained hands would twirl the molten sugar around the pan effortlessly, never burning a finger. Her pudding always came out flawless, velvety and golden, and always abundant.
Say hello to your new favourite treat! In the last few weeks (7 to be exact) these brownies have been our comfort and joy, and pretty much the biggest contributor to us getting through the elimination diet. I have made them time and again, both with and without carob (brownie or blondie), and it NEVER […]
Toffee AND Cake. I mean seriously, how good can it get? I’m not even gonna waste time talking right now. Partially because you won’t want anything to keep you from this recipe.. and partially because I don’t want anything to keep me from eating it. It’s practically yelling at me from the kitchen!
Quite possibly the most nutritious smoothie around! (Recipe with dairy free alternative)
‘Tis the season to dream of Christmas! It may just be August, but I’ve been in quite the Christmas spirit lately. I even rented some silly x-mas movies last night, and I’m playing with the idea of heading back to Europe come snowfall..
Feel like sushi but can’t get safe fresh-but-previously-frozen-yet-yummy fish just like that? I sincerely and wholeheartedly recommend making these insanely delicious Hoisin Chicken Maki Rolls! In this post you’ll find step-by-step preparation, great links, and a video tutorial for maki rolling.
I just luuv hoisin sauce. Not much beats crispy duck rolls with a saucy hoisin wrapped around it like a velvety blanket of deliciousness! If only all hoisin was gluten free.. .. actually, I take that back. -If only all hoisin was as delicious as this Gluten Free one! It’s perfect!
I came across an interesting little treat yesterday. Fresh from Pilates and seriously craving a refill (read: chocolate) these Raw Chocolate Truffles with Peppermint Crunch didn’t have to ask me twice!
I had planned for these to be an in-between-meals protein rich treat over the next week.. but whoopsie, they disappeared rather fast.
Nothing says bright pick-me-up like this yellow smoothie! I’ve previously praised paw paw and its unique ability to aid digestion and to give a glutened gut a helping hand (see: Soothie Smoothie – good for a glutened gut) Once again paw paw makes an appearance in this refreshing antioxidant explosion of a smoothie.
It comes in many shapes and sizes, and every family gives it their own twist. You can bet your bottom dollar you’ll bump into one version or another if you ever visit Norway, know a Norwegian or if you should happen to come across any Norwegian festivity. Tower Cake looks rather impressive and tastes even […]
