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*.

Llamas in Hats birthday cake

My son loves the YouTube cartoon Llamas in Hats, personally I don't. It's pretty bloody and a little violent and I don't particularly approve but it's a teenage boy 'thing' so I made him a cake in the shape of one.

Gingerbread - low carb, sugar free, gluten free

Not entirely sugar free as there is a tablespoon of treacle in the recipe, hwoever, the gingerbread is soft not crisp and it tastes really good. My husband and children ate it without flinching, said they preferred the original ginger snap recipe but this was good. Praise indeed.

Coconut Macaroons - low carb, low sugar

I love coconut, good job as it's a fantastic ingredient to use for making low carb and sugar free recipes. This one has the additional of chocolate chips (ups the carb and sugar rating though)

Sugar Free May

Sugar is hugely addictive, your body stores the excess energy as fat and sugar destroys your skin, so reduce it. Try to remember that your body is a mechanism for you to live our life through, if your body breaks you don't get another one so respect it, your body works hard for you.
