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

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

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

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

Super easy (and delicious) burger patties (allergen friendly)

I’m leaving my husband in charge of the house for 6 days next week. He really likes instructions to be written down, so I thought I’d better do that for a few recipes. I’ll have to add pictures later. This recipe will do us for two dinners – two adults and two kids with fairly … Continue reading

Paleo carrot cake

It’s my mother’s birthday on Sunday. I foolishly asked her if she had any requests for baking and she said carrot cake. I don’t currently have a carrot cake in my repertoire. Enter google. Thank goodness for the interwebs! After rejecting a few, I came across this recipe:¬†http://www.wholefoodsimply.com/whole-orange-and-carrot-cake-with-coconut-frosting/ It appealed to me for several reason. … Continue reading

Gingerbread bean cake – gluten free, grain free, dairy free, refined sugar free

A couple of months ago I began experimenting with using beans in cakes. The black bean chocolate cake was delicious, but I can’t tolerate heaps of cocoa, can’t afford heaps of cacao, and don’t like to feed lots of cocoa to my kids, either, so I set about figuring out a white bean spiced version. … Continue reading

Blueberry instant pudding

Apparently Americans really like that packet instant pudding stuff? Not knowing a huge number of Americans, I could be wrong, but it’s the impression I get. Can’t say I’ve ever been partial, but when one does feel like an instant dessert, this one is great. And so easy. There are two options – very ripe … Continue reading

Raw gingernut

I’ve been craving a gingery treat for a few weeks but hadn’t found a recipe that quite worked for me. By which I mean it looked too complicated, involved too many expensive ingredients, or had ingredients I don’t like to feed my family. I found a few today that I kinda liked the look of, … Continue reading
