April ... I like your recipes but where did you go ?

Where has April gone? I find it hard to believe that today is the last day of the fourth month - but it is!

I thought for this post I'd have a play on the letters that make up April, and choose a favourite food from each! So starting with:- 

A … it's got to be Avocado

Avocado on a plate, some LCHF recipes, more details here 

P … I will choose Pork

Pork Casserole Rustic Style, it's a favourite recipe, more details here 

R … it will be Raspberry

Raspberry Cream Cheese Mug Cupcake, it's low carb and delicious, more details here

I … not so easy but Iced Tea

Sugar Free Iced Tea, more details here

L … it's got to be Lemon

Italian Lemon Cake, it's low carb, more details here 

Why not share your favourite choice of A  P  R  I  L foods in the comments ...

Italian Lemon Cake : Low Carb - looks good - so how much almond flour in cups is that?

Lorrie said...

April has gone by quickly, and has yet seemed so long. A fun way to present a collection of recipes. The lemon cake looks tempting.

Such yummy food and ideas. Have a great day, Valerie

I would totallyagree with your choices other than iced tea. To me, that's an example od an oxymoron. I would choose iceberg lettuce.

Elephant's Child said...

Love your creative approach.
I am a big fan of avocado, raspberry and lemon. I will go with iceberg lettuce and peas for the remaining letters.

Sami said...

A - Almonds / P - Peanut butter / R - Rice milk pudding (not really low carb) / I - Iced chocolate, L - Anything with Lemon :)
Not an easy one Jan. Hope you're doing well.

Margaret D said...

Like the look of the lemon cake.

Jo said...

Apple - a nice crisp Granny Smith
Pasta - with a tasty ragu
Rose - a cheeky glass of wine
Ice Cream - vanilla for me
Lamb - chops and chips, yum

Ygraine said...

Many thanks for your comment and question.
The recipe asks for 6.2 ounces (175g) of Almond Flour, there are some conversion charts on this link which should be helpful

Happy Baking

All the best Jan

These all look wonderful. My blood sugar has been great since I’ve given up most desserts and definitely not eating them at dinner.

Teresa said...

Todo me gusta, especialmente los aguacates. Un beso.
