Warning: These cookies these are not for the faint hearted, they are incredibly moorish and not being modest at all breathtakingly yummy.
I made these beauties to take into the office for a Movember bake sale, I wanted something that I could eat (and my fellow GF collegues) but that anyone could eat without having a clue it was GF.
This did just that, no one knew they were GF until I told them after they had scoffed them down/ realised I had brought them in.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… well it is in my kitchen anyway.
So it is a little bit over due, with several of my friends making their cakes at the end of September, but better late than never and now a the perfect time.
Making a Christmas Cake can be pretty daunting (to fruit cake virgins) so I have documented the process step by step. Continue reading

This is another great recipe to make when having people over for dinner, and like the banoffee pie (Link) I made on the same night this is completely gluten free and my guests had no idea!
I made this mistake of making this after a couple of glasses of wine rather than before so the presentation is not quite my best, the much more sensible approach would have been to make it ahead of time.
Great served with rocket and spinach salad with a balsamic glaze.
It has been a bit of a mission of mine to come up with some super tasty gluten free main meals that are both tasty and quick to make, as well as non gluten free people such as my partner not feeling like they are missing out on their beloved gluten.
This dish was a bit of an experiment and this is the third time that I made it and it do believe I have perfected it, this thai inspired dish is a bit of a mix between pad thai and chicken satay, made with rice noodles keeps both the GF tummys and Gluten eaters happy. The poached egg on top makes the a super yummy sauce when you crack open the yolk 🙂
Banoffee Pie is one of my all time favorites possibly only beaten by lemon meringue pie (Link- Coming soon) depending on my mood.
This pie is definitely not for the faint hearted or those calorie counting, but it is so simple and just dam delicious and is a great thing to whip up if you have people coming over for dinner and your guests won’t even know it’s gluten free. Continue reading
For those who don’t know this week is invisible illness awareness week (8-14th September) and to raise awareness I am going to post a blog a day whether that be in my new personal updates section or even a recipe.
I started off the week by answering invisible awareness week’s “30 Things About My Invisible Illness You May Not Know” (Link) but today I am going to do a bit of a u turn and talk about a great snack which is naturally GF but also something hassle free and nutritious , so that people suffering from an invisible illness hopefully would have no problem making.
This amazing snack simple nutritious is … Corn. Yes I know it might not be what you expected me to say. But on a day like today, where I have been to work for a couple of hours got home mid afternoon it is absolutely perfect. Continue reading
So tonight for tea after a fairly busy weekend, I wanted something easy and nutritious for tea. Like most of my meals I kind of made it up as I went along but I was so please with result I thought I would share it and save it on here so I actually remember for future reference. Continue reading
Like most offices we defiantly have a bake/cake policy when it’s your birthday or for basically any other reason. So when my friends last day coincided with me passing my final chartered accounting exam, it was defiantly time to make something a little special.
My friend absolutely loves peanut butter, so I put my thinking hat on and remembered this absolutely amazing PB fudge the other week. So t I decided it would make a great leaving pressy for a friend but also be something a lil different for ‘Fat Friday’ at the office. Only problem is I have never made fudge before in my life nor did I have a clue how to do it. But how hard could it be right?
Well I suddenly realised most recipes are a bit fiddly and required a sugar thermometer and careful timings, well I have to be honest that isn’t what I called fun. But I found a great fudge making technique online which doesn’t require a thermometer or careful timings YAY!!!
