The Zenbelly Cookbook Review + Giveaway

The Zenbelly Cookbook Review

*GIVEAWAY CLOSED*The winner of the Zenbelly Cookbook is Alexis M. Congratulations! Thanks everyone for entering and be on the lookout for future giveaways from me! 

I was lucky enough to recently be sent a pre-released copy of the lovely Simone from Zenbelly’s cookbook ‘The Zenbelly Cookbook – An Epicurean’s Guide to Paleo Cuisine’ which is due to out August 12th. I was actually worried that the book wouldn’t make it here in time before our move back to the States so I asked Simone if she would be kind enough to send me a PDF copy for review instead, hoping that maybe the physical book hadn’t been sent out yet.

Raspberry Rose Gummies


I created these ‘Raspberry Rose Gummies’ recently to share because I wanted another way to use rose water in my cooking. I love the smell and flavour of rose water, plus I have a bag full of edible dried rose petals that my dear mum had gifted me on our trip back home to Australia last year, which I like to sometimes use in my food photos, like I did here. I love that I can whip up these ‘Raspberry Rose Gummies’ in a matter of minutes and have them stored in the fridge to eat here and there, they are especially great if you have kids! [Read more...]
