Mum had her Beach, Bach, Boat, BBQ recipe book open at this recipe for weeks and I finally got around to making it (for those non Kiwi’s reading this a bach is a holiday house and is pronounced batch).
I realised I didn’t have any gluten free pastry, however I remembered having seen a recipe in Sue Shepherd’s recipe book, ‘The Gluten-free Kitchen’ for a rice crust. I therefore dug out the cookbook and used the base of her Rice-Crusted Cheese and Bacon Quiche for the pie.
While the pie is a little fiddly to make, it is definitely worth it and More >
I go through stages with food, I will eat the same thing for breakfast everyday for a month and then I will get bored of it and move onto something new.

I had a flip through my new recipe book, ‘The Gluten-free Kitchen’ by Sue Shepherd and was delighted to discover that there was a recipe for such a cake, what Sue calls ‘Decadent Orange Dessert Cake’.
I was slightly concerned at first as a couple of months ago I attempted a cake with whole oranges More >
I was given Sue Shepherd’s recipe book, ‘The Gluten-free Kitchen’ for Christmas and have already made two cakes out of it. The book has wonderful photos and easy recipes that don’t involve too many ingredients.
For my Mum’s birthday I decided to make the Banana Hazelnut Cake. I was intrigued to see that the recipe included 150g mashed potato (instead of flour), however the forward of the recipe actually notes not to be alarmed about this unexpected ingredient.
The cake turned out amazing and everyone highly enjoyed it – some even going back for seconds – and you wouldn’t even realise that More >
