Homemade Granola

I am addicted to granola and yoghurt with a smattering of fruit for breakfast.  I have tried many brands of gluten free granola, some of which are lovely and some had a strange vegetable oil after taste, all of which are quite expensive.  With this in mind I thought how hard can it be to make my own. … Continue reading

GF Sausage, parsnip and apple hash with red cabbage

This is the most delicious dinner ever.  It’s free from carbs and packs a punch.  You need sausage meat, but as I’ve never seen gluten free sausage meat anywhere, I tend to use my favourite sausages and squeeze the meat out of the casings – it’s also good therapy!

Gluten Free Lunchtimes!

Just because you are a coeliac or are gluten intolerant, it doesn’t mean your lunch times have to be boring.  Whether you are at work or at home,  you should always treat yourself to something nice and tasty and if it’s healthy too, then all the better.

Here is a gallery of recent lunch time treats I have made for myself, hope they give you the inspiration to treat yourselves too! ♥

Jamie Oliver’s super-food protein loaf

This recipe is from Jamie’s new cook book ‘Everyday Super Food’

The loaf is easy to make and has the substance of batter rather than dough, Jamie says you can bake it straight away or opt to let it rest in the fridge over night to allow for the more complex sour flavours to develop. … Continue reading

Lemon Meringue Semifreddo

This is one of my favourite desserts, it’s naturally gluten free, it’s so easy to prepare and it’s a show stopper for a dinner party, it really is a delicious luxurious tasting treat and my dinner guests always go quiet when they eat this, all you hear is yum,yum noises!

The other great thing is that you can prepare this dish days before as it goes in the freezer and that’s where it stays until it’s time to serve.  I like to make little individual ones, but you could make a loaf tin size and then serve in slices.

To make this decadent dessert you will need: … Continue reading

Breakfast Banana Muffins

I have been making these banana muffins for years, but only just recently have I taken to having them hot out of the oven for a breakfast treat.  The original recipe waits until they are cool and then add cinnamon frosting on top, but they never last long enough to get to this stage anymore!

I often bake them on a Sunday as a breakfast treat after a nice and well deserved lie in.  I also like to bake them when we have guests staying over, it’s amazing how the delicious aroma of freshly baked banana muffins gets them out of bed. ♥

I now bake these little wonders directly in the tin and not in paper muffin cases.  I came about this one day when I didn’t have any cases and so just I greased the muffin tin well and cut little round discs from parchment paper to put at the bottom.  The reason I do this all the time now is that: 1- I found that the muffin stuck a bit to the paper when you peeled it off and 2- the sides cook nice and crispy and adds to the breakfast muffin experience 🙂

To make them you will need: … Continue reading
