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.

Review: Nairns Gluten Free Oakcakes (Herb & Seed)

NairnsPre Gluten days I loved loved loved having cheese & biscuits. I thought these days were long behind me.

But these tasty little oatcakes hit the spot. They were very tasty and fairly seedy and complimented my cheddar perfectly, I think they would be great with soft cheese too.

The only downside to them is that they are a little bit cardboardie in texture and I think for that reason a plain version of these could be a bit disappointing (not that I have tried them yet!). Continue reading

Starting down the Gluten free (GF) path

Starting down the Gluten free (GF) path

When my nutritionist told me I had to go gluten free, I genuinely wanted to cry.

I thought that my baking and days of eating out were over, I love all things full of gluten goodness from pizza, pasta, bread as well as cakey things and I felt like it would have to cut out everything I loved out of my diet.

Luckily this was not the case, three things really helped me get on the right path. Continue reading
