In the Northern Hemisphere, summer is fast approaching, and in the Southern Hemisphere, it is coming to an end. Still, whether you’re seeing the first buds in your garden or watching the last flowers slowly hang their heads, you are most certainly making the most of whatever sun you can see. And so, a sunny, fresh and light meal is a welcome thing for all.
Besides, these delicious gluten-free wraps with dandelion and chevre are just as good toasted as they are fresh, so even if you’re feeling a bit chilly, this is just the ticket! Read More

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, and the earth offers up an abundance of gorgeous fruits and vegetables.. well, at that point I want nothing more than to be back home in Scandinavia.
These days I blissfully loaf around on the chilly hardwood floors in my woolen slippers, tightly hugging a blanket and a huge cup of hot tea on my “way to work”. I don’t have to loaf very far, mind you; my workplace is at the top of the stairs in my own home. Read More

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 make it every now and again, and usually as a special surprise on weekends. We would dig in with eager enthusiasm, and literally scrape down the tray in order to secure the very last bite. Read More
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 a blanket in the park. My aunt dishing out chunky hand-torn slices of bread, and juicy,sun-ripened melon that would drip onto our clothes. It tasted different -better, than sandwiches at home. Nothing has ever bettered those lunches, and I don’t think anything ever will. It was pure summer magic! Read More
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 mum’s delicious spaghetti with her homemade sauce. Yum! Read More
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 the whispering of the trees all around you. It truly is magical, and really adds to the show! Read More
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 for more than 5 minutes to cause trouble, and why would you do that? Cabbage is best when it’s crisp and crunchy, so no need to boil the life out of it. Read More
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. Read More

Oh yes, it certainly is! The sun has dared battle the seemingly never-ending grey skies of England, and it’s about time we bring out the jugs!
Almost as soon as the presents are opened at Christmas, I start looking forward to picnics and Pimm’s in the park.

A chocolate sauce that will melt both your ice cream and your will power..

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.

We’re sitting ourselves to DEATH
The American Journal of Epidemiology showed that men who sat for six hours or more had a 20% higher death rate than men who sat for 3hrs or less..
But, with 8 hours a day in a job, 2 hours commuting, 8 hours sleeping and a couple of hours looking after kids or tending to chores.. where do we find the time?
That question is quickly turning into a common problem, as our lives are constantly filled with even more activities which give us even less movement. However, even if you are sitting down for most of the day, and you can’t get away; there are some very important and incredibly effective ways of catering to your body’s desperate need for activity. By following my simple exercise plan you can help your body cope with the strains of sitting down.
But why is it so terribly important that we keep moving? You might be saying to yourself: ” Can you tell me something I don’t already know?” Read More

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 amazing and ever-perfect Christmas-only gingerbread cookies. In fact, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret; namely the very best gingerbread cookie recipe on the planet! My grandma made it with oodles of gluten of course, but I’ve deglutenefied it and I cannot tell the difference in the slightest. They are absolutely perfect! Read More

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 high protection without all the gunk? Read More
