How to Make a Courgette Rosti

How to make a Courgette Rosti 

I feel as though Autumn has finally arrived. The air is cooler, the leaves are changing their colours and I’m ready to start wearing my winter coat. So after walking Bella on a chilli morning, I’m thinking about what to have for lunch. Normally I tend to choose a warm lunch through the winter months, mostly soup. However I’ve decided to try my own variation on the trational Swiss Rosti, making mine from courgettes. This is a great lunch for everyone.. fab as a weekend brunch or a great snack if eaten cold. Whichever way you choose to eat your lovely Rosti I’m sure you and maybe your little ones will enjoy it. Choose your own topping fried egg, smoked salmon, scrambled egg and bacon.

Sugar free apple and blackberry crumble

It’s that time of year when the hedges are plentiful with berries ready for Autumn such as the blackberry. Since my childhood I have enjoyed this delicious dessert of apple & blackberry crumble. So being sugar free I was concerned that I was no longer be able to savour this delicious dessert. While I was armed with a tub I set off in search to find some ripe plump blackberries. I enjoy picking blackberries, savouring the country air then heading back with a tub fall to the brim of tasty berries. Not forgetting my berry stained fingers.

Sugar Free Chocolate Cheesecake

Since becoming sugar free last year I knew that I would struggle with giving up sweet treats especially desserts. Therefore when I hosted my pot luck meal and a friend brought around this mouth watering chocolate cheesecake I was in heaven. To say it was delicious was an understatement and while enjoying this fabulous dessert I knew I needed this recipe. First of all she used my cacao balls recipe for the base and told me the ingredients for the topping. This cheesecake was so scrumptious I went back for seconds. It’s a fantastic dessert to take to a dinner party and an excellent alternative for afternoon tea.
