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)

Tasty 10 minute Gluten Free Thai Noodles

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 🙂

Variety is the spice of life- GF Lunch at Friska

Today a friend asked me if I wanted to meet up for a catch up at lunch. I jumped on the offer to have something other than my standard jacket potato and tuna from my works canteen, pretty much the only GF option.

As I don’t have a full hour break due to being on a phased return to work, I needed something quick and most importantly had a non potato GF option. So Friska on Victoria Street it was. I had been there many times before I was GF and all their food is super tasty and I thought, it is just the sort of place that would have GF options (And I was right!). Continue reading

Speedy Gluten Free Falafels & Chickpea Flat breads

Falafel 1I love falafels, they are just soooo tasty!!!! So many recipes are quite complicated and take a while due to having to soak chickpeas for agesss. When I discovered this recipe I was very sceptical to how nice they would be considering from start to finish they only take about 10 mins.

 

I decided that the falafels by themselves simply wasn’t enough chickpeas, I may or may not be obsessed! So I decided to make these gorgeous Chickpea Flat breads/ Pancakes they are somewhere in between a pancake and a flat bread. Continue reading
