Gluten Free Chicken Pie

Gluten Free Chicken Pie

Baking challenge – sponsored by Pyrex (recipe number 2) My house is relatively gluten-free. We’re not celiacs, but a few of us have intolerances and sensitivities, and so we try to limit our intake. We’re not as rigorous with our gluten avoidance as we used to be, but my husband […]

Sweet Potato Muffins

Sweet Potato Muffins

I haven’t made any gluten free dishes for ages, and my husband is stomping around the house grumpy and with a swollen belly. Time for a little appeasement methinks. Not only that, I have been told by my own doctor that the fatigue and headaches I experience may possibly also […]

Coleslaw with an asian twist

Coleslaw with an asian twist

Coleslaw used to be one of my favourite salads. Childhood days in my Mum’s late 1970s kitchen, when Margaret Fulton ruled (she still does occasionally), and when a “salad” was always lettuce, tomato and cucumber with french dressing. There were only two other variations – Potato salad (with bacon chips […]

Mocha meringue torte with hazelnut crumble

Mocha meringue torte with hazelnut crumble

This one came to be because it was a friend’s birthday. Not just any friend, but another food blogger. Not just any food blogger, but a food blogger who has been to Paris to study Cordon Bleu cookery (Francine’s blog is here). I stupidly suggested I’d make a cake, and […]

Gluten Free, Dairy Free cupcakes – as easy as 1, 2, 3

Gluten Free, Dairy Free cupcakes – as easy as 1, 2, 3

It’s amazing where your best recipes come from. This was my son’s maths homework. His male, non-cooking teacher sent home a recipe that was to be used to practice multiplication. He sent home the ingredients for 6 cupcakes, and asked students to make him 12 or 18 at a time. […]

Granny’s Tuna Curry

Granny’s Tuna Curry

Ok – so this is not very gourmet. I’ve discussed Gran’s cooking here. Saying that however, this is one of the favourite dishes in this house, particularly with the kids. Even Mary has been known to say she likes this one, although she might just be showing respect to elders, […]

Sarah’s Summer Pudding

Sarah’s Summer Pudding

Summer Pudding. It’s one of those things I wish I could like, but I just loathe the delivery. Yucky sliced white bread soaked in sloppy juice. The concept is great – oodles of magenta sugary bombs wrapped in a secret parcel, but I just keep on coming back to the […]

Kiddies Corn Fritters

Kiddies Corn Fritters

These have always a staple in our family. I think they started off as a breakfast item, but now they are one of the most frequently requested dinner veggies, and I always save some for the lunchbox the next day. Considering we have switched to being gluten and dairy free, […]

Pomegranate and Quinoa salad

Pomegranate and Quinoa salad

I’ve just discovered that you can cook quinoa in a rice cooker. This means no more sticky-together or crunchy bits, no more burned quinoa stuck to the bottom of the pan, and no more constant checking. Just plop in 2 cups of quinoa to 4 cups of water, turn it […]
