About & Contact

Hi!  Welcome to my low carb and gluten free recipe site!  

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 general 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 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.   We are now in Aruba and will be moving again this year. Who knows where our next home will be!  Divalicious Recipes is because I  am a little bit of a  diva and my cooking is delicious!

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

If you want a peak into my island expat life then jump across to AnotherRumPunch.com.   It’s not all sunsets and flipflops!   It’s taken the city girl in me a while to adjust!

    Thank you so much for the psyllium coconut flour flatbread recipe. You are a genius! I make this every day. I can finally eat gluten free bread again. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease over a year ago and bread was what I missed most. You have made me very happy ☺. Thanks again and I will definitely be checking out more of your recipes.

    I’ve made several of your recipes all of which were good. This morning I tried the zucchini mint feta muffins. Good warm or cold, for any meal. Easy too. I used silicone muffin cups in a regular muffin pan. Thanks and best wishes in your new digs!

    I love the cream cheese muffins and make them all the time, but my doctor has put me on a medicine for ten days and no dairy. Can I freeze the muffins because I just made a batch yesterday, thank you

    Was wondering, I am making the Low Carb Sub Sandwich….. They are not rising like the photo of yours. Mine are like flat breads. Is there any suggestions of what I may be doing wrong? I did recipe exactly as printed. Thank you in advance. They smell wonderful!

      Hi, always make sure the egg whites are whisked stiff. That might help.

    I am now in the process of making the orange chocolate cake..In the list of ingredients it calls for 1 tsp. of baking powder…in the directions it says baking soda.
    in the list of ingredients it calls for 1/4 cup cocoa powder….it is not in the directions….

    please let me know which is correct.
    Thanks,

      Hi Sherry, It should be okay in most recipes. Have you tried my avocado cookies too? No butter there and avocado makes a great replacement for butter too!

    Hi, I love the almond flour bread rolls. I have made many batches. How long do they keep for in the refrigerator? I usually eat them too quickly to care, but thought I could make a larger batch at one time. Thank you

    Hi Angie. I also need the carb count. If I count the carbs for each ingredient and add them together would this give me the carb count for that recipe and then divide by how many in a batch. I don’t like troubling you for this info. Love your ideas. You must put in so much work. It’s very much appreciated by so many!!

      Hi Janie!
      Glad you like the site! Some of my older recipes need updating with the print feature and the nutritional information. I am slowly working my way backwards but if there are any in particular you want updated, let me know and I’ll get onto it. I’ve been updating the site and it’s a bigger job than I thought! Happy baking! (and eating!) Angeia!

    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!

    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?

    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.
