Camp Bestival Planning

Mojitos for tomorrow night and in an ideal world all we would need is three things: Tequila, salt and limes, we wouldn't need anything else to get us through the weekend as no food would be required or remembered. However, we have children so that's not going to happen *sighs wistfully*.

Raw Chocolate Coconut Bars aka Sugar Free Bounty Bars

I'm trying hard to wean myself off sugar (again) but I have such a sweet tooth it's torture. Therefore I've been experimenting with sugar free, low carb sweet fixes, one of them are these lovely raw chocolate coconut bars

Chocolate Coconut Ice Lollies or Popsicles - sugar free, low carb

If you're trying to cut out sugar, reduce your carbs or just want to eat healthily these ice lollies are a great way to get your ice cream and chocolate fix.

Cinnamon Ice Cream with Lotus Biscoff crunch

I warn you, this is not a healthy ice cream recipe and it's dangerous moreish. It would be wonderful served with apple pie or crumble providing you can prevent the children from eating it all straight from the ice cream maker.

Creme Anglaise and Ice Cream Base

This is Creme Anglaise or Custard and is an ideal base to use for making all sorts of ice cream. Serve warm as Creme Anglaise or custard with puddings or chill and add the double cream to make an ice cream base.

Glis Glis aka Edible Dormouse - austerity recipes

I admit that I just clicked on a link to 'edible dormouse diet' thinking "wow, someone has actually put together a diet based on eating Glis Glis, that's amazing".

Rome - the Eternal City with kids at half term

We didn't realise that 'close to the Pantheon' meant actually next to it, right slap bang next to it, open the windows and you look directly at it kind of 'close' to it.
