A taste of French summers.. As a child, France was my second home. My auntie, uncle and cousins are from the south of France, and my childhood summers consisted of long, sweaty road trips through Europe, and memorable, extended visits in their Catalan village home. I vividly remember the taste of fresh baguettes with cheese, on […]
No-tomato, no problem! Growing up (and to this day) my mum’s spaghetti Bolognese is my number one dinner treat. In our family we’ve always had the tradition that we can choose any dinner on our birthday, and my mum will cook it. Where other family members would choose fillét mignon’s and lobster, I choose my […]
Theatre under the stars Ever since one of our first dates, about 4 years ago, my husband and I have loved the outdoor theatre in Regents Park. It’s a fantastic experience, every time, and makes for a perfect date spot. There really is nothing like watching great acting and gorgeous singing under the stars, with […]
This is an incredibly simple and amazingly delicious dish! Did you know that cabbage is one of the most nutritious and least allergy-provoking vegetables around? It’s also a mere myth that cabbage will bloat you and deem you to social seclusion for at least 24 hours after a meal. Not true! You have to boil it […]
Celebrate anything, with a decadent tiramisu! There was an Italian restaurant in my hometown. The kind that has stood tall and busy for decades, without changing one bit of the interior or staff. The same old lady yelling in the kitchen, and the whole family waiting tables. Each their role, and always seemingly too busy. […]

I’m in absolute LOVE with Pad Thai at the moment. I straight out crave it! Forget takeaway; pad thai has become my go-to for lazy movie nights in. It’s fresh, healthy, full of flavour and colour, and with my 10-minute recipe it’s also quick and easy!
“Tired of London, tired of life” (quote: Tom Jones) Out-and-about with a hungry fire in your belly is absolutely no problem for a coeliac in London! There’s an outright ocean of choices, and no reason to go hungry. In fact, I’d say it would be hard to compete with London in terms of ease and […]

Not much tops a deliciously thick and sticky salted caramel sauce; it is the worlds best combo of sweet and salty! My favourite thing is how it hardens ever so slightly on your ice cream, and then melts in your mouth.. yum!! This recipe is to die for, it is just that awesome -and incredibly simple!

No Christmas without gingerbread.. ..and a really truly great recipe is a must! Gingerbread really is the flavour of the season. Shops are full of it, cafe’s are full of it, even your favourite coffee’s full of it these days. If you don’t mind I’d like to strip it back to basics. Back to my grandmas […]

(image source) Sunscreen is probably the most difficult thing to find a decent natural alternative for. I’ve written a review of Invisible Zink previously, and now it’s time for another alternative. Most sunscreens, although totally necessary, contain a cocktail of chemicals, parabens, perfumes and preservatives. The big question is as always: how can I get broad spectrum […]
We’ve all been there..
Can you believe it? I’m not sure I can! I certainly consider it a grand complement and a great privilege to be featured as Blogger Of The Month in such an acclaimed and brilliantly successful online magazine as The Modern Womans Survival Guide. I can’t believe they picked me out of all the talented and […]
Being on a complete elimination diet and living in sunny Australia poses one giant conundrum; sun protection. Most sunscreens, although totally necessary, contain a cocktail of chemicals, parabens, perfumes and preservatives. How can I get broad spectrum high protection without all the gunk?
You’ve been gluten’ed! -What now?
