Sweet, crispy and slightly chewy Vanilla Crisps are an old family favourite … going back to my childhood. These have been modified from my Mum’s original recipe to make them gluten free. Mix these vanilla cookies up at any time for a quick, sweet snack that is ready in a speedy, half hour. No thinking […]

Vanilla Crisps

I grew up saying courgettes, but these days it seems to be zucchini. I guess it depends where on the globe you live. Either way they are the most versatile veggie in my garden. Pick your zucchini when they are a medium size. The bigger, older ones have too much moisture content and not enough […]

Zucchini Fritters

Spring and early summer is my favourite time of year. It’s berry good with all the fresh fruits and veggies from the garden. Sunny days, good food, a little wine …. ahh! These muffins are so quick and easy to make and with little bits of strawberries inside. They are not too sweet … but […]

Strawberry Muffins

You need these for your chocolate fix. I love good rich chocolate flavours and these are so light and airy, for being gluten free. If you prefer them a little more sweet you could add some chocolate icing to the tops of them. I prefer them less sweet and with the combination of the chocolate […]

Chocolate Date Cookies

Childhood birthday memories. We always had a choice for a birthday meal the whole time I was growing up. For dessert I usually chose this lemon cheesecake for my Mum to make. It’s still one of my favourites to this day and the base was so easy to convert to gluten free along with the […]

Lemon Cheesecake

This carrot cake has been an ongoing recipe for a while now. Lately I’ve made it with my own flour blend from fresh milled flour, in my grain mill. And also with Anita’s gluten free all purpose flour … both were equally good. This cake is dense and full of flavour and each forkful gets […]

Gluten Free Carrot Cake

This was so easy to make and I love the garlicky cheese sauce. It does make a good change from a tomato sauce and pairs well with the subtle tanginess of the sourdough crust. The day before baking, mix up the ingredients and leave covered in the fridge for 24 hours. Remove the dough from […]

Cheesy Garlic – Sourdough Pizza

For the past couple of weeks I’ve baked these cookies a number of times, tweaking the recipe each time. Now I can’t seem to stop eating them, so I had better share them around … too dangerous to keep. It’s the combination of orange and ginger that I am loving so much. With the first […]

Orange Ginger Cookies

These short bread cookies have that light crispy … amazing flavour that I remember from BEFORE being diagnosed with celiac disease. They only have four ingredients and are so quick and easy to make. There are gluten free powdered sugars with the GF label. Make sure you find one of those or you can grind […]

Shortbread

I found a bottle in a store the other day labelled “Ravens blood”.  So naturally enough I decided to make muffins… who would not make that connection! These are not the sweetest muffins, which is why I like them, but with the addition of a light cream cheese on top they are awesome. You don’t […]
