I’m not normally much of a coffee drinker, but the smooth taste of espresso with walnutty company, all wrapped up in velvet smooth buttercream.. well who can possibly resist!
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!
Sweets for my sweet.. It is not always easy for children (or adults for that matter) with sensitivities and allergies to feel “normal”. A lot of our sense of belonging stems from participation in activities along with our peers, and food plays a huge role in most social gatherings. For children especially, the sense of […]

My Favourite “Melt-In-Your-Mouth” Swede/Rutabaga Cake! (Gluten Free, Dairy-Free, Failsafe, low FODMAP)
I just have to stop everything I’m doing for a minute, and share this fantastic cake with you! A lot of people either don’t “understand” swede, don’t use it, don’t know it or think that only cows eat it. I have grown up with it and I seriously LOVE it! It is so healthy, very […]
My Favorite Dessert “Karamellpudding” – a Norwegian take on Creme Caramel or Flan – Made dairy and gluten free!
My grandma used to be the undefeated boss of “Karamellpudding”. Her trained hands would twirl the molten sugar around the pan effortlessly, never burning a finger. Her pudding always came out flawless, velvety and golden, and always abundant.
Say hello to your new favourite treat! In the last few weeks (7 to be exact) these brownies have been our comfort and joy, and pretty much the biggest contributor to us getting through the elimination diet. I have made them time and again, both with and without carob (brownie or blondie), and it NEVER […]
Toffee AND Cake. I mean seriously, how good can it get? I’m not even gonna waste time talking right now. Partially because you won’t want anything to keep you from this recipe.. and partially because I don’t want anything to keep me from eating it. It’s practically yelling at me from the kitchen!
Eat lots of ice cream, it fixes almost everything! Unless it contains gluten. Or dairy, or eggs, or nuts or soy of course. But I’ve got that sorted for you!
A smoothie that will give you back that spring in your step (pun intended)!
‘Tis the season to dream of Christmas! It may just be August, but I’ve been in quite the Christmas spirit lately. I even rented some silly x-mas movies last night, and I’m playing with the idea of heading back to Europe come snowfall..

Last week was declared “pie week” on the Great Australian Bake Off, and nothing could be more Aussie than a good old pie! Just don’t tell an American that.
GABO or “Great Australian Bake Off” is sweeping over the nation with soggy sponges and crumbling cupcakes in tow. A self-raising baking frenzy is taking off like a rogue blender, and the heavily frosted pink counterpart to the much applauded Master Chef and MKR, is eagerly waiting to claim it’s 15 minutes of fame.
Mother-in-law popped by for a quick dinner-and-dessert visit yesterday, and I thought I’d bake something. I have become “that one who bakes”. I used the to be “that one who brings the fun” and now I bring cake. Not that cake isn’t fun. Just very different fun.
I woke up completely stressed out this morning, hair in a frenzy and with flustered cheeks. I must have had out-loud heated gibberish discussions all night, as I found myself utterly exhausted and frustrated when I finally woke up.
I came across an interesting little treat yesterday. Fresh from Pilates and seriously craving a refill (read: chocolate) these Raw Chocolate Truffles with Peppermint Crunch didn’t have to ask me twice!
Oh it’s a rough day. Fourth day of rain (which is a big deal here in the Sunshine State), bf away in (sunny!) Melbourne for work, I have a mountain of work on my desk and an even bigger mountain of washing to do. To top it off, in spite of the grey and rainy weather it is unbearably hot […]
..and it’s a winner! Table of Plentys yummy little sweet treats make a welcome change from the chocolate covered rice cakes that can be found most anywhere. Plus, I just picked them up from a petrol station! Very convenient indeed.
I had planned for these to be an in-between-meals protein rich treat over the next week.. but whoopsie, they disappeared rather fast.
I think gluten knows I’ve got something on.. How else can it possibly be explained that I tend to get sick just before birthdays, dinner parties, holidays and anniversaries!
Ever longed for a sweet treat but less keen on the calories? This should satisfy your cravings!
How can something so perfectly innocent taste so naughty..? Oh but it does. This ice cream is goodness wrapped in even-better-ness!
Another Scando classic to please the sweet tooth. Quick-sticks and very moreish.. For about 40 fast-vanishing Toffee Biscuits you’ll need:
It comes in many shapes and sizes, and every family gives it their own twist. You can bet your bottom dollar you’ll bump into one version or another if you ever visit Norway, know a Norwegian or if you should happen to come across any Norwegian festivity. Tower Cake looks rather impressive and tastes even […]
Airports (something I see a lot of) are usually a no-can-do for GF treats. In fact, travelling Sydney-Gold Coast today I couldn’t even track down GF lozenges, let alone anything edible. However, last week I had a little moment of thrill in newly renovated Auckland International, as I came across a tiny treasure of a […]
