Gluten Free MeatballsMy parents were coming over for dinner and I was feeling pretty fatigued, but still i wanted to make something from scratch, that was quick & easy but also wholesome, healthy and most importantly tasty!!!

When cooking for others I like to make stuff that they would have no idea was GF and this really does the trick.

GF Toasted Marshmallow, Chocolate & PB Cookies

GF CookiesWarning: 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.

Review: Sainsbury’s Free From Digestive Biscuits

photo 2(8)I brought these biscuits to make the base of my fabulous gluten free banoffee pie (Link) and they really did do the job well, it was a shame however the reason the base for the pie was so lovely was due to the butter and chocolate that I added to it.

I brought 2 packs and had almost 3/4 of a pack left after the pie, however all but one are still in the cupboard over a week later.

 

photo 1(11)So why  you ask are these biscuits still in the cupboard and not in the depths of my belly? Well they are flavorless, have a odd crumbly texture and resemble nothing of a digestive, they are £1.35 (Link) for about 10 biscuits.

Overall opinion Mr Sainsburys you can do better!  So all in all I give them a 2/10.

They only scored the points that they did because they helped make such a yummy pie.


I have reviews loads more GF products so you don’t have to try out the dud ones feel free to check them out 🙂 (Link)

Gluten Free Scrumptious Lasagne

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.
