Who doesn’t loooove garlic ? No, seriously, who ? Garlic is pretty special if you ask me.

According to online healthy life ambassadors ‘Natural Society’ dot com “A mere one milligram of allicin is nearly … Continue reading

strawberry tart – tarte aux fraises

Strawberries are back people – and they are so cheap – I picked up 500g yesterday for $2.00. They were sweet and delicious with the lush red skin and soft flesh, not sour and tasteless. It’s ideal to use fresh berries for this, at their most ripe too ! One of my favourite flavour combos … Continue reading

gluten free vanilla and raspberry cupcakes with rose buttercream frosting

I made these last night as a birthday cake alternative for my mother-in-law. I think gluten free food needs to be pretty and not have such a stigma attached to it as being boring.

I love new menu changes. Call me weird, that’s cool. Here is why I love menu changes… 1. New seasons bring seasonal produce. It’s mid Autumn here at the moment :) Veggies like celeriac, parsnip, kale, silverbeet and sweet potatoes are all in season.

gluten free lemon and raspberry polenta cake

I made this recipe for my wonderful mother-in-law while we were living in their home. Cathy is coeliac, and her daughter Tahnee, my sister-in-law is gluten intolerant, so a lot of cakes and biccies and things are out of the question. I was dubious of how this would turn out, but I was pleasantly surprised. … Continue reading
