So I needed to make some marzipan to cover my scrumptious looking Christmas cake (Link), this is so easy to make either to cover a cake or to make yummy little marzipan bites which will make lovely little snack to put in lunch boxes, wrapped up to make a nice pressy or put out in a cute bowl for guests (or yourself).

These cookies are so simple to make and make the perfect little christmas treat. Why not impress Santa this Christmas by leaving him one of these out instead of a mince pie. Continue reading
Who doesn’t love a good take out every now and then, either as a cheeky treat or because quite frankly you cannot be bothered to cook.
These cravings do not however do not disappear when you are Gluten Free, for a while I basically tried my luck, getting glutened just over 50% of the time, a bit like playing Russian roulette to be honest.
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

Gluten Free Junk Food Craving (Link) post, where I illustrated my craving for pizza and chips, that I managed to fulfil without breaking my GF diet; has by far been my most popular post to date. Therefore I thought that I would share another fairly similar tale.
A week before my final charted accounting exam (Fingers crossed!!), I was feeling a bit down in the dumps, a bit emotional and probably hormonal. I had to go to the Mall to take my Macbook to the genius bar, is it kindly decided to stop turning ok… Naught MacBook!!!! I was just in one of those moods, I was exhausted all I wanted to do was slump down when I got home was to have a bit of a Netflix binge and stuff my face, with cake and chocolates, and have a bit of a pity party.

Bristol as a city is full of great little finds, one of my favourites pre gluten free days was that every Thursday during the summer months, there would be this awesome food market, with alternated between a market in which you could by produce or one that would offer tasty meals you could eat for lunch.
Oxtraordinary -GF Review of The Ox (Bristol)
Steak is kind of my boyfriend and my thing. In our opinion you really cannot beat a good steak.
So for my birthday he booked The Ox (Link) as a surprise, I knew he was taking me out but had no idea where so I was feeling a little anxious as I had recently be accidentally glutened whilst eating out and hadn’t been able to call ahead etc to check there were options.
When we arrived outside the restaurant I was so excited I had wanted to go to The Ox since its opening last year, it is re known for its fabulous stakes and cocktails (which is to be expected as it is twined with the Milk-thistle). Continue reading
