Simple Tuna Pasta

Simple Tuna Pasta

My husband’s been away, and the first thing my kids did was ask me “Mama, can we PLEASE have REAL pasta before Daddy get’s home?” I’ll let you into a secret. It doesn’t matter how often I tell you that there is nothing wrong with gluten free pasta, I’m lying. […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Frittata , or Spanish omelet – dairy free

Frittata , or Spanish omelet – dairy free

I’ve made breakfast on new years day for 40 party-sore camping revellers. It was my first ever 96-egg omelet. I made it in a iron pan twice the size of a baby bath dragged out of the garage and thrown over some hot coals left from the night before. It […]

Honey Bundt

Honey Bundt

My kids have colds again.  My granny knew the cure for the common cold a long, long time ago. So did her granny, and her granny’s granny. Honey, citrus, and love. Now we have scientific proof – honey not only soothes a sore throat, it also aids in controlling bacteria […]

Almost healthy yeast-free apple doughnuts

Almost healthy yeast-free apple doughnuts

I’ve fought making doughnuts. I’m not really sure why – probably it was the idea of deep-frying. Not the fat – I don’t mind a bit of that. No – it was about the fuss, the mess, the chance of slopping oil all over my clothes, or worse, scalding my […]
