Spicy Baked Apricots

Spicy Baked Apricots

It’s so cold here. Definitely not salad weather. Although I have been making a brown rice version of the quinoa tabbouleh, it’s cold but I add extra dressing and it’s very filling – important for cold days I feel. When it’s cold like this my […]

Vegan Green Tea Brack

Vegan Green Tea Brack

Well, third time’s a charm! This Green Tea Brack still has a fudgy rather than crumbly cake consistency but actually this works well here¬†– and the taste is great. The problem was really the blend of flours. I think I’ve mentioned previously¬†that before I started […]

Gluten-free Mocha Brownies

Gluten-free Mocha Brownies

Last year when I added the recipe Foolproof 4 Egg Food Mixer Mayonnaise I got into a bit of tizzy about what sort of suggestions I could offer for what to do with the leftover egg whites. Most of things that came into my head […]

Savoury Gluten-Free Bread

Savoury Gluten-Free Bread

Before I talk about the bread – which by the way I love! – I just want to point out the redesign of the site. If you’ve been here before you’ll see it’s quite different, quite colourful – hope you like it. The reason why […]

Guilt-Free Rainy Day Cake

Guilt-Free Rainy Day Cake

The weather’s been pretty changeable this month. It may be a gorgeous sunny day or it may be piddling from the heavens. Some days you’ll feel like using all the fruit you’ve bought and some days not so. And on the days it’s cold you’d […]

Gluten-Free Crackers

Gluten-Free Crackers

I started this blog with a couple of recipes for dips, guacamole and hummus. I love snacking. And you can snack on healthy things too. I’ve a sweet tooth though so I’ll often opt for the dessert-style snack but every so often I want to […]

Vegan Soft Fruit Cookies

Vegan Soft Fruit Cookies

I’m finding the whole going gluten-free thing quite difficult. I did decide to give up all grains and legumes for a few months also. I have had a couple of slips. The thing I miss most is actually wholemeal soda bread – there is just […]

Whole Orange Cake (with a little Chocolate)

Whole Orange Cake (with a little Chocolate)

I bought two bunches of bananas last week just to make sure I would have enough ripe ones to work on the whole orange cake recipe. Last time I added some raspberries and they worked well taste-wise but all the seeds were a problem. This […]

Tomato & Olive Wholemeal Scones

Tomato & Olive Wholemeal Scones

These scones are very filling and can turn a light meal into something more substantial and satisfying. To make them a good snack all by themselves I like to add either cheese or walnuts. Walnuts work well with the olives and tomatoes, and they are […]

Vegan Wholemeal Scones

Vegan Wholemeal Scones

After posting the wholemeal soda bread recipe I wanted to offer a vegan version to show how easy it is to play around with soda-bread recipes to suit many different diets. I wanted them to be very similar in taste to the wholemeal brown soda […]
