Paleo – Sex in a Pan

Trying to find new treats that are low carb … you usually end up in the Paleo section of the web.

This one from Grok Grub appealed as it had a number of layers and looks rather lush. How can you go past a recipe called Sex in a Pan!

It was pretty amazing, but so so rich … we could only have a small amount a time due to the amount of fats. We are talking Shortening, Coconut Milk, Cashew butter.

I calculated that each serve would be 148 calories … and these are small pieces, definitely a ‘sometimes’ food.

Carrot cupcakes minus the sugar

On the lookout for a way to use up some soft oranges I was trawling through sugar free recipes for orange and almond cakes and stumbled across I Quit Sugar’s Carrot cupcakes .

I abandoned my orange cake search purely as the carrot cakes had the word ‘frosting’ in the title.

I used organic flour rather than the gluten free one in the recipe… Mainly as I only had the one option in the pantry … Other than coconut flour which reacts rather differently to the average flour options.

Anywhooo … The mix was very wet but baked rather well, they are solid but not hard … Next time I would mix it less and try a different flour.

They are not very sweet at all, I used less than the recommended amount of the Rice Malt Syrup but there is enough there to make these a little treat after dinner.

One to have in the repertoire …

Garlic V Honey – Ashmore Seafood and Steak

I was advised that I HAD TO GO HERE … HAD TO

2012-07-02 20.33.362012-07-02 19.47.132012-07-02 19.46.392012-07-02 19.46.43

So I went … I am not too sure what I can say … it is a total experience. The menu is MASSIVE and filtered by categories such as ‘Garlic Vs Honey’ and ‘From the Stockyard’.

I have read the reviews on Urban Spoon and Tripadvisor (with Tripadvisor being rather more positive than Urban Spoon, maybe most people on TripAdvisor are tourists and in great holiday moods?).

But next time I am near I will likely go again, yep .. It could be my guilty, guilty pleasure.
