Divalicious Recipes

About & Contact


Having a silly moment..!

I started this blog as “Divalicious in Dubai” when I was very, very bored at work when I was living in Dubai.  The company I was working for was being bought out by a large search engine (ahem) and a lot of us were sitting around with nothing to do which drove me nuts as I like to be busy.   As I was also embarking upon a healthier low carb and gluten free lifestyle after years of Dubai brunches and generaly debauchery, I thought that I would put together a blog of my recipes.

After 5 years in Dubai we moved back to my home country and settled back in London (well, just outside but it’s where I worked and spent most of my time), so the blog then was renamed “Divalicious Recipes in the City” with the thinking that we would always move onto another city as my husband was always being offered jobs abroad.   How wrong we were!  His next move brought us out to Barbados and I had to change the name again of the blog to Divalicious Recipes to keep it simple for our travelling.   I could not do a Divalicious in the Islands!   Who knows where our next home will be!  Divalicious Recipes it is!  Since I am a little bit of a  diva and the dishes are delicious!

I hope you enjoy the recipes and learn that you don’t have to give up treats for a healthier lifestyle.

Oh, and there are a few grown up drink recipes…some are low carb and a couple are not quite part of this natural life style, but hey, a Diva has to live a little..

    Hi – How are you? You have some amazing recipes on this blog! Alot of them use coconut flour, which is great, since these are exactly the kind of recipes I’m looking for. However, I’ve been looking for Coconut flour in Dubai for a while now. Where do you get yours?

      Thanks! I ended up buying my coconut flour online from Amazon as I could not find it anywhere in Dubai either.

    Hi Angie, my husband and I are just starting out on the “primal” diet with no/low carbs – it isn’t easy as I do love my food but I am so excited to try out all the recipes you have on your blog!! Thank you so much for sharing them! As I am writing, the almond bread is already baking in the oven 🙂

      Glad you like the recipes! The chickpea flour can be purchased in most supermarkets or small Asian shops. It has a few names, Garam or Besan flour. Enjoy!

    I am so excited to find your blog. I am 56 and in need of a healthy life style. I, like you love am passionate about cooking and baking. Its almost like therapy to me. I’m hoping you can teach me how to cook low carb no sugar recipes. I have high blood pressure and have lost 50 lbs 3 times. Problem is I gained it back everytime. My Son is a fitness nut and turned me on to this slow carb diet but I feel so tired and believe I need a little more carbs. Can’t wait to try your recipes. Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Judy! I’m glad you found me! Have you tried to increase your healthy fat content? I find eggs with avocado in the morning will keep me going until lunch time happily! Wish you all the best in your diet and let me know how you progress! Happy baking!

    I love the recipes for your pizzas but they don’t have the carbs listed, Do you have a rough estimate for the Almond Butter/Flour and Coconut Pizza doughs?
    Thank you

    I have been looking for a site like yours for awhile now. My husband and I have various intolerances and due to other health issues, I must eat very healthy. I have trained as a chef; however, dealing with chronic pain, I don’t always have the energy or mind-space to experiment like I used to. I look forward to following you and testing out your amazing recipes!
