• Egg Bread - The BEST gluten-free bread I know

    At last, a recipe for gluten-free bread that works! It was a long journey to get here... But lucky you can cut straight to the chase šŸ™‚ This gluten-free bread recipe allows for common bread replacement in pretty much everything you need it for. It works well from sandwiches to pizza bases. It's like a thin flat bread and it is light and airy, unlike so many other 'gluten-free' breads. It is also high in protein and low in carbohydrates, which gluten-free breads tend not to be. My favourite way to serve it is with a warm homemade tomato salsa (justā€¦ Read More
  • Spreadcake

    This recipe is the result of a rescue operation. It came about as I tried to rescue the lovely ingredients that I had just used to make a healthy pancake mix which went terribly wrong.... šŸ™‚ So as they say, good things do come out of bad ones (sometimes).

  • Smooth but whey beyond smoothies

    Yep, you guessed it. Iā€™m not a great fan of smoothies. And yes, that includes the ones made purely with fresh fruit. Well the truth is fruit is full of sugar and if you blend it all up, chances are you will eat a lot more than you would manage under normal chewing circumstances - with the added disadvantage that the broken down fibre will accelerate the absorption of the sugar into your bloodstream. So in the end, smoothies are good intentions that don't quite materialize. Ok, if you use it to replace a high street milkshake that would be fullā€¦ Read More
