Making nut milks - almond, hazlenut etc

Published 21 November, 2008

Almond milk is nice. Hazlenut (filbert) milk is even nicer, especially in a latte. But the trouble is, when you buy them in cartons they come laced with corn maltodextrin and other nasties that I don't want to be ingesting. They may be gluten free, but who knows just 'how' gluten free? So I... Continue Reading

Lamb & Sweet Potato Pate

Published 8 September, 2008

It was another of those 'what the heck am I going to have for breakfast' mornings. The fridge was bare apart from some leftover lamb. There were a couple of wrinkled looking sweet potatoes in the cupboard. What was a starving coeliac to do while the kids tucked into steaming hot rice and... Continue Reading

Sweet potato mash with fennel

Published 2 September, 2008


I've followed this Gordon Ramsay sweet potato recipe a few times, but there comes a time when every man must go it alone. So I tweaked it. Not radically, I'll admit, but noticeably, and with the dover sole I ate it with, I might even go as far as to say it was better. (Don't tell Gordon ;)... Continue Reading

Savoury gluten free muffins

Published 26 August, 2008

I must admit, I'm a latecomer to the concept of savoury muffins, gluten free or otherwise. Apart from your standard cheesy muffin, I've never really come across them - don't know if they're an American thing or what.

Anyway, as I often do, to escape from the corner that various food... Continue Reading

So easy dairy free rice pudding recipe

Published 20 August, 2008

Dairy free gluten free wifie is a bit of a fan of the rice pudding, but since the dairy intolerance was diagnosed, we've not been able to make a properly creamy one.

However, a moment of inspiration in the supermarket the other day led to this tasty little number, that does everything a real... Continue Reading

How to eat gluten free in Majorca

Published 11 August, 2008

Majorca (Mallorca) is a favourite holiday destination for us Brits. And now we coeliac Brits can be confident in eating gluten free when we get there.

Carmen Barcelo contacted me recently to ask if she could use the Spanish gluten free restaurant card in the book, and now she's completed it,... Continue Reading

The best gluten free biscuits ever?

Published 9 August, 2008

Oh the joy. After years, nay decades, of toil and torment, I've finally made a gluten free biscuit that makes gluten-eaters sit up and take notice.

Don't get me wrong, this ain't no fancy-pants spiced creamy foo-foo biscuit. This is a down-to-earth, honest-to-goodness gluten free biscuit.... Continue Reading

Breakfast lentil dal

Published 9 August, 2008

Breakfast lentil dal??? :) Yep! Apparently it's quite a fave over in India, and with my gluten-free, yeast-free, everything-else-free breakfast options becoming more and more limited, I thought I'd see if I could knock together something lentilly and breakfast-friendly. Which means not too... Continue Reading

Fennel and samphire fishcakes

Published 30 July, 2008

I've always been found of the humble fish cake but today the fish cake I'm making is not quite so humble. After dinner tonight we had some roast fennel and some sun fire grass left over. I know fancy you and some and also some salmon and some place. So I've whipped them all together into... Continue Reading

Cooking chard, kale, spinach… all things green

Published 29 July, 2008

At this time of year, our garden is bursting with greenery - chard, beets, kale, cavelo nero, perpetual spinach... it's a veritable forest of tasty and nutritious leaves. But what to do with it all? Fresh green from the garden are great for coeliacs of course, with their high calcium content and other useful bone minerals, but when you've got as much as we have, you need some seriously creative recipes to avoid getting bored with them.

Gluten free meme blog thing

Published 23 June, 2008

This is a heads-up to those of you who like to discover new gluten free blogs. Cheryl at gfandhealthy has added my blog to her meme (I had to read up on what one was too). I should create one myself, but I can't spare the time just now (thankfully they don't have any of the downsides of... Continue Reading

Gluten free yeast free bread rolls (and loaf!)

Published 12 June, 2008

You're not going to believe just how bready these yeast free marvels are! You could probably make a decent loaf from them too, but I don't bother these are so good.

TRS Sorghum flour NOT gluten free

Published 7 June, 2008

I'm always on the lookout for new gluten free flours to use in baking, but have never been able to track down sorghum flour in the UK (also known as juwar or jowar flour). I was somewhat elated therefore, to find TRS Juwar flour, the only ingredient of which is sorghum. Now because this isn't marked 'gluten free', I ran a Haven gluten test on it, and I'm glad I did.

Gluten free egg free pancakes

Published 7 June, 2008

I like to make breakfast pancakes for the family once a week, and am always messing around with different mixes of gluten free flours. (Which makes my pancakes somewhat unpredictable :-) This mix is the best yet, and will take some beating.

Slow Cooked Venison and Rhubarb Stew…. gluten free of course

Published 22 May, 2008

Everyone has one lurking at the back of their cupboard. If not their cupboard, then perhaps an older relative. Slow cookers were in vogue in the 70's but became dust catchers as people moved on to newer cooking methods, such as the revolutionary microwave oven.

In a fit of nostalgic... Continue Reading

Sweet potato muffin recipe
