Vegan sweet potato bake by The Natural Foodie

Sweet potato bake

You may have noticed that I’ve been a bit experimental in my cooking lately, using ingredients like coconut oil and nuts in place of butter and milky ingredients. I’ve loved nearly everything I’ve tried but I haven’t gotten quite far enough into it to make something ‘cheesy.’ I absolutely love potato bake so when Kirsty […]

No-bake coconut macadamia biscuits with chocolate icing

DSC_6113

Chewy, no-bake biscuits crusted with coconut and topped with a smooth, rich, chocolate ganache finished with a dusting of desiccated coconut. Sounds mouth-watering doesn’t it? It sounds like something you could only have one of because they must be seriously naughty. It would appear that if you have a lack of self control when it […]

Spanish tortilla with sweet potato

We’re leaving Morocco today and hitting the high seas. Head to the port at Tangir, in the north of Morocco, jump on the ‘fast ferry’ and 2 hours later you will find yourself in the land of senoritas and paella . There are a some similarities between Spanish and Moroccan food, the two countries being […]

Paleo apple cinnamon muffins – in the microwave

Apple and cinnamon paleo muffin

Today I have a very special visitor and guest sharing one of her favourite new recipes with you… my sister. My sister and I are pretty different when it comes to food. She’s very very healthy and likes all sorts of good things like tofu and beans, every fruit under the sun and she’s even […]

Today you are witnessing a first here at Claire K Creations. Do you know what it is? I’ll just tell you and save you guessing… this tomato onion and feta tart, is the first ever tart/pastry shell that you’ve seen out of the tin here. It’s the first one that I’ve been brave enough to […]

Zucchini and olive hommus – paleo, vegan, gluten-free

Zucchini & olive hommus

I was deliberating over which dip to buy when an older lady asked for assistance. ‘Would you mind helping me?’ she asked. ‘Of course not, how can I help?’ She’d forgotten her glasses and wanted to make sure she was buying the avocado dip with the highest percentage of avocado so asked me to read […]

Stay with me I haven’t totally changed my eating habits over night. I’m not one to latch on to the latest craze diet, in fact I’m quite against them in general. My idea of a diet is eating as well as you can most of the time with a few (ok sometimes more than a […]

Crunchy Asian vegetable salad

In 2013 I’m going to continue to expand my eating repertoire. This year I’m going to find at least 10 salads that I like and make them every now and then. I’ve established that traditional salads with lots of lettuce are not my cup of tea. For me, a salad has to have a bit of oomph and […]

Christmas stuffed mushrooms

I know what you’re thinking – my goodness Claire that’s not a very pretty looking recipe. I beg you to stay with me though because while this may not be the prettiest recipe I’ve ever posted, it sure is tasty and it makes up for it’s lack of visual appeal with it’s really-good-for-you status. This […]

Melanzane ripiene (stuffed eggplant)

Have you seen or read ‘Eat Pray Love?’ It was a pretty hard thing to avoid for a while there. I loved the book and the movie but of course my favourite section was Italy. The way she described that food, I wanted to jump on the next plane headed for Rome and join her. […]

Chris’s Italian slow-roasted tomatoes

I seem to have a knack for finding bad weather at the coast. My man headed down to Sydney for the football finals last weekend so I decided to take a break up at the beach with mum and dad for the long weekend. I arrived at lunch time on Saturday to brilliant sunshine and […]

Asian style stuffed capsicums

Asian style stuffed capsicum

I mentioned that last week I had bursts of not being able to get off the couch interspersed with moments of great kitchen creativity. The creative moments were often filled with vegetables in an effort to fight off the dreaded winter lurgy. My Asian style-stuffed capsicums were super simple to throw together and absolutely delicious. […]
