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, More >
I was going to my parents place down the coast for Christmas drinks and Mum was making mini chive pancakes with sour cream and smoked salmon, a recipe taken from the Coles Christmas magazine. I remembered that I had a sample packet of Vitarium‘s pancake mix in the cupboard and therefore decided to make a few gluten free pancakes for myself.
I made up the pancakes, however added quite a lot more milk than the directions on the packet suggested as they were too thick. I also hadn’t realised that you were supposed to add chives to More >
At Christmas time I always look forward to my Mum’s baking including rum balls, Christmas cake and especially stollen. However since being gluten free I don’t get to indulge in these treats anymore. This year, though, I decided to make gluten free options of everything. I wasn’t going to make stollen as I was a little concerned about the large amount of flour and it therefore not working out, however because I love it so much I decided to give it a go.
My Mum has had her Southern Stollen recipe for years (it is taped together in a couple of More >
As discussed in yesterday’s post I decided that as well as making the Vitarium Christmas cake I would try and make one from scratch. The recipe which I used was given to me by my Aunty and it was very easy – almost as easy as making the Vitarium Christmas cake. I left it in the oven for a bit longer than I should have, worried that it wasn’t sticking together properly however once I took it out of the oven and it cooled down it did so.
Compared to the Vitarium cake this Christmas cake is more moist and has a More >
As Christmas gets closer I have been thinking about what foods I want to bake for the holiday season. One Christmas food that I enjoy but haven’t had since being diagnosed with coeliac disease is fruit mince tarts. I have been meaning to make some, however I noticed a pack of gluten free fruit mince bites at the supermarket the other day and therefore decided to try them out. The company, Jon Jon Bakeries have a number of products some of which are gluten free including lemon, chocolate berry filled, afghan and double chocolate chip biscuits and spiced apple & sultana, More >
I was lucky enough to receive a sample of my very own blend of muesli from MuesliMixer, a company which allows you to create your own customised muesli from over 55 ingredients.
I had heard of MuesliMixer before but never got around to designing and ordering my own muesli. However with the lack of good gluten free muesli’s around this seemed like a great idea.
MuesliMixer has two types of gluten free bases, free and c’crunchy (rice puffs, rice flakes and sunflower seeds with a pinch of cinnamon) and free and tasty (rice flakes, puffed amaranth and buckwheat) and a number of More >
