Me and Neil are slightly obsessed with these gluten free sausage rolls with chilli jam. In fact, despite Neil being able to eat ‘normal’ food, the first time I made them, he declared that they were the nicest thing I’d ever made.
Whilst I’ve already got a popular fruit scone recipe on the blog, I was keen to hunt down a good savoury variation for you to whip up too. I’d also been eager to test out scones made with buttermilk. I felt it would make them a bit squishier inside. I was right…it does!
Googling ‘scones with buttermilk’ I came across a smashing recipe over on Sainsbury’s food website. And it’s that very one I’ve jiggled about with to rustle up this recipe for gluten free cheese and red onion buttermilk scones.
I’m super excited to be sharing this gluten free lemon surprise pudding with you as it’s a real cracker!
My mum used to make lemon surprise pudding a lot and I always loved it. But it was one of those recipes I’d forgotten about until my sister-in-law, Kate, mentioned that she’d recently made it.
This lemon surprise pudding has everything you’d want from a pud. It has the most gorgeous light sponge topping and beautiful creamy lemon custard base. Which all happens as if by magic, whilst it bakes in the oven.
For many years, I had the absolute joy of being a part of my niece, and nephew’s birthday parties. As every year, my sister-in-law, Kate would invite me over to assist her in the kitchen to get the food prepped beforehand and also to then be on hand to help out, once the party was in full flow.
Kate always laid on a great party spread for the children to enjoy. And after the savoury bits and bobs had been cleared away, it was time for the sweet things to be brought out. The highlight always being the mini party cakes that Kate had rustled up.
This vibrantly coloured red slaw has it all going on, with a lovely variation of textures and flavours. The ideal side to enjoy with barbecued meat/fish/veggies, homemade quiche, cold cuts (and hot buttered new potatoes – yum!), freshly cut sandwiches, tasty toasties and so much more.
Delighted to share this lovely simple recipe, for a rather delicious gluten free coffee and walnut cake with you. A good old classic, that is a favourite treat for many.
The original recipe I used for this coffee and walnut cake came from Nigella Lawson’s website and it works splendidly as a gluten free version.
I’ve only made these coconut tarts once and the day after I made them, I debated about playing about with the recipe. But a quick chat with my best friend, who had sampled and loved them, convinced me that I needed to stop faffing and just get on and tell you all about them.
These delicate coconut tarts with their buttery pastry base, generous helping of yummy raspberry jam and light (perfect ratio) coconut topping are a delicious treat. An ideal bake to offer up to friends and family with a nice cuppa when they drop by.
Whilst it’s brilliant that so many eateries safely cater for people with coeliac disease (or anybody that requires a gluten free diet), unfortunately, there are a few that don’t quite get it right. I personally feel the lack of understanding, of how crucial a strict gluten free diet needs to be for people with coeliac disease and the fact that some people choose the diet as a lifestyle option (but are not always committed to the diet) seems to have caused confusion about the true need and meaning of a gluten free diet.
Delighted to be bringing you this recipe for a scrumptious quiche Lorraine. A true classic dish here in the UK.
Quiche is perfect served up with a delicious colourful salad, works splendidly as part of a buffet spread and of course can be enjoyed hot or cold.
This gluten free shortcrust pastry quiche is jam packed with plenty of tasty, smoked bacon and tangy mature cheddar cheese. And the little twist of adding a spoonful of English mustard, really gives it an extra depth of flavour that will make your taste buds dance. If you’re unable to grab yourself a jar of English mustard that is gluten free, a GF Dijon or wholegrain mustard would also work marvellously.
A few years ago, we decided to start having our milk delivered, rather than picking it up from the supermarket. It’s something that my parents and grandparents have always done, but it took us a little longer to cotton on to this fabulous and most convenient arrangement.
And whilst from the start we’ve always appreciated our regular doorstep fresh milk delivery, over the last year this service has been invaluable. Because something as simple, as having a constant supply of milk for our morning cuppa, without having to nip off to the shops in these uncertain times has been SO good and one less thing for us to have to fret about.
