Muffins take 2 – gf, df, rsf, nut free, soy free

I was getting bored of my muffin recipe and also had to make Lord B cut back on the oats as he was reacting to them, so I tweaked it a bit. The beauty of this kind of baking is that exact measurements are not required and you can experiment with different ingredients. You’re never … Continue reading

Lord B turns 5

Kinda crazy to think I’ve been an active parent for 5 whole years now. I say active, because I was technically a parent from the moment he was conceived, only I didn’t have to do much till he was born. Well, I guess being semi healthy, and then labour and stuff, but ya know. I … Continue reading

Choc chip buckwheat cookies (rsf, gf, df option)

  So I saw this recipe a couple of weeks ago. Why on earth would one want to make only two biscuits at a time??? What a waste of power! When I bake, I like to make enough to put some away for the rest of the week, or to freeze for feast day treats … Continue reading

Mostly healthy caramel slice (rsf; gf, df, ef options)

Oh the artiness of my food photography. How green with envy those “professional” bloggers must be. For Father’s Day this year, I decided to put on a High Coffee for my husband and father. They’re both hard to buy for and we always go to Nanny and Grandpa’s house after Mass on a Sunday anyway, … Continue reading

Yummo lunch – kumara salad

Kumara, Henderson’s bacon, Abella buffalo feta, avocado, sauerkraut, bean “hummus”, karengo (nz seaweed).

PANNA COTTA EASTER BUNNY (dairy free, gluten free, sugar free)

While on the Easter treat theme… I got this bunny mould for a few dollars and was stuck for what to put in it, then remembered I haven’t made panna cotta for ages. (I did also make a very solidly chocolate bunny out of cocoa butter, cocoa, and maple syrup. We haven’t finished it yet.) … Continue reading

CHOCOLATE-COVERED COCONUT BITES (with minty option) (pretty much allergen free)

Being very strictly dairy free this Easter (sweet Lady S is dairy intolerant too, surprise surprise, and Sir A is getting a lot more milk from me that he was pre-birth so I’d have to for him anyway), and having limited time in the kitchen, I had to come up with some quick and easy … Continue reading

SOURDOUGH SCONES/”HOT CROSS BUNS”

So easy you can’t go wrong. I don’t think. All you need is oat flour (whizz oats in the food processor or blender till as fine as it’ll get), water kefir, dried fruit and spices, and a dash of molasses for hot cross buns.  

Easy spiced muffins: wheat free, can be dairy free, can be gluten free, nut free, sugar free

Muffins are very handy things to have on hand, but it’s taken me a while to find a recipe that’s quick, easy, relatively crap free, and we all like. I ended up adapting one, and here it is. (It’s super forgiving, so feel free to mix it up, yo.) Ingredients: 3 eggs 1 can drained … Continue reading

Breakfast cookies (dairy free, sugar free, (gluten free)

Sir A is still having eczema issues. It’s only on the back of his knees now, which is nice, but still not ideal. I took another look at his allergy report from 2 years ago in the hopes it’d help me avoid having to do another one. Peanuts, apparently. He’d been eating a LOT of … Continue reading
