A couple of years ago my flatmate at the time brought home some rocky road that her work mate had made. Lucky for me my flat mate didn’t like rocky road so she gave it to me. The rocky road had to be the best that I had ever tasted so I asked for the recipe. However, for some reason or another I never got around to making the rocky road. This year though, since I am working on Christmas Eve, I decided to bring something yummy into work for everyone. I decided I would therefore make the rocky road, however use white instead of milk or dark chocolate to give it that Christmas touch.
It was a bit of a mission to find gluten free turkish delight, however I finally found some at a deli in Chatswood (pariya raahat rose & almond delight). After making the rocky road I found out that the turkish delight at Fruit Ezy in Chatswood Chase and Chatswood Westfield is also gluten free and a lot cheaper.
This rocky road is really easy to make and great to give as Christmas presents in some cellophane with a ribbon or some tinsel.
- 500g chocolate
- 150g honey coated macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
- 1 1/2 cup marshmallows (try and get mini ones otherwise you will need to chop them up)
- 250g Turkish Delight (cut into quarters and then tossed in the excess icing sugar to stop them from sticking to each other)
- A handful of glace cherries or dried cranberries (I used cherries
1. Combine everything except the chocolate in a bowl and mix it up
2. Melt chocolate on medium heat and stir otherwise you’ll get a film surface
3. Layer a rectangular cake tin with baking paper and drop the dried ingredients in. Smooth them out so ingredients are evenly laid out.
4. Pour chocolate over dried ingredients, being sure to cover everything in chocolate
5. Refrigerate until set
As you can see I didn’t have quite enough chocolate for the edge pieces so it would be worth melting a bit more chocolate as too much is better than too little!

I’m back… and I am going to start making up for my absense with this amazing recipe for gluten free banoffee pie. Since moving to London I haven’t done much baking except when I went through a phase of making gluten free banana bread (recipe to come). However more recently I moved house and my

I used to eat at Wagamama all the time and loved it. But after being diagnosed with coeliac disease I visited Wagamama in Sydney and found out that I could only eat one item on the menu and it was far from the best dish I had had there. So I didn’t go back for

Just when you thought there could not be anymore restaurants in Banff with gluten free options. I have one more for now… and it’s a good one. It took me 10 months of living in Banff and finally in my last month of living there I got around to visiting Nourish. I had been told

I absolutely love Mexican food. The great thing about Mexican is that they often use corn tortilla’s and if not they usually at least have them as an option. So it is not surprising that after the first visit to Baja Cantina in Glebe, where they give you the option of corn or flour tortilla’s,

As I have mentioned before there are a number of places with gluten free options in Banff, and The Elk and Oarsman Pub & Grill is no exception to this. I was very excited to find that The Elk & Oarsman actually have a separate two page (!!) gluten free menu. I usually go to the

There is a really awesome website in Canada, Well.ca, which has a great selection of gluten free foods and delivery is free! Whilst there is a pretty good selection of gluten free foods available at the two supermarkets in Banff there are some things I just cannot get my hands on. For these products I

I saw an advertisement on TV for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with this recipe. Whilst it sounded, let’s say interesting, I was intrigued and had to try it. The first time I tried this recipe I bought some gluten free rice crumbs but I found them too crunchy with an almost sand type texture. The next time

One night I had planned to make the chickpea curry I saw on Scandi Foodie’s blog however I left the recipe at work (and I didn’t have internet at home at the time) so I had to put my thinking cap on to try and remember the ingredients for this recipe. Then I realised that

This was another daily deal site purchase – a voucher for a meal at Sugar Lounge at Manly Beach. A couple of friends and I headed down one sunny Sydney day to indulge in some fancy food and drink (well fancier than most of my dining out choices). First things first – cocktails! I went for

I have to say I go through my stages with green tea. There are times when I drink it quite often and then I usually go off it again. One of the things that puts me off is that if you don’t brew it for the exact right amount of time it can taste really
