You can seriously dig into overflowing spoonfuls of chocolatey heaven, without […]

It’s that spooky time of year again, and parents of allergic children everywhere are rummaging through shop shelves and printing allergy labels in the hope that their little troll will be able to enjoy a scary, but not deadly, Halloween celebration.
I love autumn! It’s autumn in Norway, and for the first time in many years I am able to enjoy it! Autumn is possibly my favourite season, one I sorely missed during my time in Australia. Sure, who doesn’t love sun and salty water! -But when the tree tops are on fire with golden leaves, […]
This recipe is gluten-free, tomato-free, egg-free, sugar-free, nut-free, low acid/GERD-friendly, and can be made dairy-free, low-FODMAP/Fructose-friendly Who doesn’t love lasagne?! I’m totally lasagne crazy. Nuts, in fact, about this hot-from-the-oven, multi-layered, moist and cheesy pasta dish which never, ever fails to satisfy! Growing up, lasagne was a bit of a treat. My mum would only […]
This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free adaptable, low-FODMAP adaptable, lacto/ovo and lacto-ovo vegetarian. A fresh, modern take on a classic Bread pudding is a popular dessert in so many countries, but often considered a bit of a heavy and “old-fashioned” dish. I think that this wonderful, classic pudding deserves a fresh and contemporary revival! Out go […]
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 […]

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. […]

A chocolate sauce that will melt both your ice cream and your will power.. I have a thing for chocolate sauce.. Especially the thick, creamy, sticky kind that makes an abundantly delicious gooey mess out of my dessert. A lick-the spoon-and-scrape-the-bowl kind of sauce. Like this one:
Iv’e been listening to a lot of 80’s music lately. It’s been buzzing along in the background as I’ve been working, and last night I started dreaming up gluten-free versions of the songs I kept hearing. Call it a stress reaction, call it an overload of old hits, call it what you want. But the […]

When you enter any gym or workout facility around the world you’ll probably notice the loud music that’s playing over speakers right away. Music is so common in places where people regularly work out, that a silent gym would likely feel pretty strange. While most people just think music is there to cover the sounds […]
This is only a little post, but an important one.
Nothing beats fresh pasta. However fantastic the dry stuff is, it just doesn’t come close.
Erykah Badu once said that “Honey isn’t really that good for you” …and if you are vegan, low FODMAP, allergic, on a Failsafe diet, macrobiotic diet or simply under the age of 12 months, Ms. Badu is quite right. Honey has a lot of health benefits, but as with every other food, these benefits are […]

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 […]

We call them “Peppernøtter” which means peppernuts. They contain pepper and they’re shaped like nuts, so why not.
