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.
That was until I found out about Chans which is based at the end of Henleaze on Wellington Hill and has a fairly large delivery radius. Continue reading
My 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.
A little while back, I wrote a review on my lunch out at Friska (Link).
I don’t go out for lunch that often when I am at work, only when catching up with a friend, but when that is the case Friska is always my top choice. Continue reading
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.
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)
I’m tired, it has been just one of those days, everyone gets them. All I want is to stuff my face with junk food and defiantly cannot be bothered to cook. Then my mind jumps straight for … dun dun dun! Pizza and chips! Once it is in my mind, it is no longer a want but a need, now I have a one track mind. I am already on my way to Tesco, I pull up in the car park, and it dawns on me; I have probably picked the worst meal ever for someone who is GF.
I huffed and puffed myself into Tesco, trying to rack my mind for something else I wanted, but I couldn’t get my mind off of pizza and chips. So I just figured I would have to start from scratch, not exactly my quick and junk food but being GF often just have to accept that compromises must be made.
Bread I think is one of the worst gluten free products out there and so expensive, for such an inadequate product.
Usually miniature and full of holes, so you can barely make a sandwich let alone have a hope in hell for using for a decent bacon sarnie or at a BBQ.
These Sainsbury’s own brand GF white rolls, have defiantly been the best out of a bad bunch. Continue reading
I am on a bit of a cheese and biscuit spree at the moment. First with my review of Nairns Gluten Free Oakcakes (Herb & Seed)(link) and now with Mrs Crimble’s Cheese Crackers the Sun-dried Tomato & Pesto variety. Continue reading
