When we lived in New Zealand we had a huge feijoa tree in the backyard. It produced so many feijoa’s that Mum didn’t know what to do with them (my sister and I even sold bags on the street to get a bit of extra pocket money) so she was constantly searching for recipes to use the feijoa’s in. She can’t remember where she got this recipe from but it was my absolute favourite and I was rather upset when I found that feijoa’s are very rare in Australia.
So you can imagine my excitement when I found a feijoa tree More >
After being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease and living gluten free for a year, I decided that I wanted to share my experiences, so I started this blog.
I hope that you enjoy my restaurant reviews, gluten free product reviews, and gluten free recipes. But, you don’t need to be on a gluten free diet to enjoy my reviews and recipes, so have a look and feel free to comment!
Every year on our birthday my sister and I get to choose what we would like for dinner and every year when we were growing up I chose roast chicken and vegetables with my sister choosing lamb shanks. These days I generally don’t choose roast chicken as I have come across so many amazing recipes in the last couple of years, however my sister still chooses lamb shanks.
My sister came over for dinner on the weekend, and even though it wasn’t her birthday Mum suggested we have lamb shanks, justified by the fact that it is rare that we are More >
When working out what to have for lunch on Sunday I decided to use one of the Old Time Bakery Wraps that I bought for my home made pizza the night before. I was interested to see how the they would go when actually using them for a wrap as most gluten free wraps are like cardboard and break as soon as you try and fold them.
I prepared all the ingredients and held my breath while I rolled More >
On Saturday night I really wanted home made pizzas for dinner – however after the amount of food I ate over the Easter break I decided I should probably have something healthy for dinner.
It’s rather hard to make healthy gluten free pizzas due to the gluten free bases and wraps being high in carbohydrates. Though recently I noticed in one of Susie Burrell‘s weekly newsletters that Old Time Bakery Gluten Free Wraps have only 22g of carbs per serve making them one of the few carbohydrate controlled wraps that are gluten free.
I checked out Old Time Bakery’s website and liked the More >
It’s starting to feel very wintery and so it’s time to get out those winter warming recipes! We had a copy of the April 2011 issue of BBC’s Australian Good Food Magazine at home and after having a flick through we decided that the “Pork cutlets with creamy mustard sauce” recipe sounded perfect for an autumn night. The recipe is taken from Manu Feidel’s new recipe book Manu’s French Kitchen and not only is it tasty but it is easy to make. Served with mashed potato (and sweet potato) and steamed greens it is the perfect winter warming meal!
