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 muggy! It’s like all things ugly all at once.. Read More

I had planned for these to be an in-between-meals protein rich treat over the next week.. but whoopsie, they disappeared rather fast. Read More
Nothing says bright pick-me-up like this yellow smoothie!
I’ve previously praised paw paw and its unique ability to aid digestion and to give a glutened gut a helping hand (see: Soothie Smoothie – good for a glutened gut) Once again paw paw makes an appearance in this refreshing antioxidant explosion of a smoothie. Read More
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! Read More

Oh but it does. This ice cream is goodness wrapped in even-better-ness! Read More
Could we really be drinking gluten every day?
I’m not a fan of spreading fear, and I don’t want you choking on your coffee right now. I do however believe in making information available so that each of us can form our own opinion. And why shouldn’t gluten find its way into my coffee? After all, it does have an uncanny way of popping up in the most inconvenient of places.. Read More
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language,
and next year’s words await another voice.”

Each New Year’s Eve I seem to find myself in a remarkably different place or situation than I could have possibly foreseen the year before. Read More

Could this be the beginning of an easier life for us? Perhaps this is the birth of a long needed commercial interest in our condition?
Is this our miracle cure?? Read More
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 better. It is however surprisingly easy to make!
You’ve been gluten’ed! -What now?
Isn’t it just the worst feeling? You know it’s coming, you know far too well how it’s gonna pan out, and there’s absolutely nothing you can do to rewind it. The donut’s been eaten and punishment is on it’s way..
Gluten strikes with a hard hand, the effects are inevitable and it really does suck. There are however ways to make it easier.
Let me share with you my 5 best tips for coping and getting better faster! Read More
How YUM does this look! Getting ready to pretzel up my xmas cookie collection as we speak. Thanks Celiac Kiddo!
Insane meaning SUPER easy to make. And to eat. We’ve gone through several batches already. Last night I found my husband pawing through the refrigerator on a search for more. Unfortunately for him I had given the rest away as gifts to Bunky’s teachers for the holidays. He looked at me suspiciously and asked if I was sure there wasn’t any left. As if I had my own secret stash.
Yes, this bark is so good it makes the most rational of men paranoid.
Go right now and check your pantry. Here’s what you’re looking for: chocolate, pretzels, candy canes. Or whatever is crunchy, salty, and sweet. That’s the beauty of this bark. You can personalize it. But you need chocolate. Chips, chunks, bar, whatever. Don’t have any? Go buy it. Now. I’ll wait.
Here is what you need, specifically, for this bark.
- 1 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips…

I just want to mention that back in the UK I received a lovely heaping hamper of really rather decent gluten-free products from a company called Glutafin. For no special reason other than being a newly diagnosed coeliac! Read More
Keep a herb garden, it’s a very good idea. Sure the watering will drive you crazy, but you can pop out and collect fresh, flavorful herbs at any time for any meal.
I use it in hot food, salads, breads, drinks, desserts, decoration, you name it.
Not only will herbs lift the flavor of whatever you’re cooking, it will probably also lift your health. And maybe your mood. It works for me 🙂 Read More
Just thought I’d mention that I found a good pasta brand.
I hate mushy, soggy, wet and overcooked pasta. Pasta that swells up and fills the pot, disappears through the strainer and dissolves when you try to stab at it with your fork.
San Remo does it better. I really like their fettuccine. Al dente, at last.
Home away from home for my fiancée and I would be the Royal Meridien Hotel in Dubai. We just can’t stop falling in love with this heavenly place and we keep returning. It is where we had our first holiday together, and it is where he eventually proposed. I’ve been told that some people don’t see the “big deal” with Dubai, but I’m pretty sure that comes down to where they stay. Read More
Who’d have thought a small place like Pukekohe could whip up such a grand and worldly display of service!
My very first GF outing in “The Land of The Long White Cloud” proved a smashing hit. In the otherwise rather unpolished and rural surroundings of country town Pukekohe (south of Auckland), lies a surprisingly urban gem of a restaurant called the Monarch Cafe. Read More
Utter bliss would be the best way to describe NOPI, a classic contemporary top-shelf restaurant in central London that proudly features a full GF menu. No sacrifices, no compromises, just all wonderfully scrumptious food that even the pickiest taste buds can’t fault. Read More
