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

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

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
