Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge, Quirky Cooking

Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge

What happens when you want to make chocolate but you have no cacao butter, so you use butter instead? FUDGE!! This fudge was a delicious accident, and we couldn't be happier with the result! Use whatever nut butters and nuts you prefer - we thought we'd revisit our childhood with this peanut butter version. It's so creamy and delicious, we've had to taste test it quite a few times!! ;) Check out the recipe notes for dairy free, nut free, and reduced sugar variations.

Grain-Free Lasagne, Quirky Cooking

Grain-Free Lasagne

Lasagne is a comfort food that pretty much everyone adores. You'll notice that when someone changes their diet to eat gluten free, grain free, dairy free, vegetarian, vegan, paleo, GAPS, keto... whatever it is... they madly search for a substitute for their beloved lasagne! Well, we feel like we've found the epitome of all lasagnes... using lasagne sheets made with our famous Grain-Free Dough/Pastry! A decadently delicious recipe for those wanting a gluten-free, grain-free, whole food lasagne - with dairy-free, nut-free and Paleo variations.

Quirky Cooking Lemon Yoghurt Cake (Grain Free)

Lemon Yoghurt Cake (Grain Free)

Who doesn't love a tangy, moist, lemon cake, with sticky lemon syrup drizzled over and cream or ice cream on top, and a cup of tea on the side? You guys obviously agree with me, because when I shared this recipe in our newsletter a few months ago it went crazy! Well, good news, here it is on the blog so it's easier to find now... AND my sister and I played with the recipe and improved on it, so it's even better now! Woo hoo!!

Slow-Cooked Lamb Shoulder with Red Wine Sauce

By Fouad Kassab - We used to serve a more complicated version of this recipe at my restaurant, Baraka. The incredibly popular dish was made by cooking the lamb in a master stock braise with burnt garlic and onions. At home, I use the recipe below, cooking the lamb in a slow cooker. It involves very little preparation time and results in a brilliantly tender and delicious meal with very little effort.

Quirky Cooking - Healing Chicken Soup

Fighting Colds & Flus, and My Healing Chicken Soup Recipe!

When you've got a cold and you're feeling sick and miserable, or you feel the need for a super nourishing meal so you don't GET sick, what do you crave? For me, it's always chicken soup. Maybe it's something to do with my childhood, and mum making soup for us when we were sick... Chicken soup for me means love, nourishment and comfort. But it's not just psychological - it really IS medicine!
