I dreamt of Hot Cross Buns last night… it may have been because I baked some before going to bed and the smell was wafting through the house.
There is nothing I love more at Easter time than the smell of Hot Cross Buns and after spotting this recipe on a fellow gluten free blogger’s blog I decided I had to try making my own. I have never made Hot Cross Buns before, even when I wasn’t coeliac, however there were many years of my life where I would only eat the fruitless Hot Cross Buns anyway.

Thanks to the gluten free family I just found out that from this Thursday (21st April) ALDI in Australia will be stocking their gluten free range (Has No) until sold out. I personally have not tried any of the range yet as they only release them a couple of times a year but I have been told that they are really good (and cheap!).
The range includes:
- Gluten free pancake mix
- Buckwheat pasta
- Gluten free pasta
- Gluten free bread mix
- Gluten free rice crumbs
- Gluten free flours
- Gluten free gravy mix
Check out more information and the prices here.
Make sure you get More >
Easter is only a couple of days away and everywhere you go you can’t seem to escape the sight and smell of chocolate and Hot Cross Buns. The chocolate part is no problem for those who are coealic or gluten intolerant as most chocolate is gluten free (Darrell Lea have even partnered with Sweet William to produce a range that has no chance of contamination unlike the rest of Darrell Lea’s range), however when it comes to Hot Cross Buns it’s a different ball game!
What better way to spend your Sunday morning than a kayak on Sydney harbour followed by lunch and gossip at Lyne Park Cafe? Well I can tell you it doesn’t get much better!
As you may have guessed that is how I spent yesterday, a leisurely paddle followed by a delicious roast vegetable and haloumi salad and chai latte.
I pass by The Technology Park Hotel in Alexandria every day on my way to and from work and ever since it (more recently) had a makeover I have wanted to have a meal there. What made me want to go more was that someone Tweeted that they have a number of gluten free options and the food is great.
Last Friday night I convinced my Mum, even though the pub is on a busy road (Wyndham Street), that we should go and check it out. We grabbed two window seats and started with a glass of wine each.
One of my favourite things to do on a Friday and Saturday night is to meet a friend for dinner and a couple of drinks and catch up on all the goss and happenings. One of my favourite places to do this is in Glebe. Glebe, apart from being reasonably close by, is always buzzing and has a number of great restaurants with an array of cuisines, from Mexican to Turkish to Vietnamese.
This particular night I was craving Mexican and so I suggested to my friend that we head off to Baja Cantina. Unfortunately it was a popular night and More >
