Have you been looking for gluten-free liquorice by any chance?
I recently spent a few days in Oslo (Norway) where I hosted a workshop about blogging (so much fun!), and on the way home I found something delicious (and gluten-free of course) at the airport!
As a Scandinavian, I simply cannot live without salty liquorice. Did you know that most liquorice is made using wheat flour, by the way? Oh, how I miss my Allsorts.. Read More
My grandma used to be the undefeated boss of Caramel Pudding. 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.

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 identity and self-worth is formed hugely based on belonging, and belonging often comes from being able to do what others do, have what others have, and of course eat the same things their friends eat. Lollies are no exception, and although it may sound silly, sweets do play a big role in children’s social sphere. After all, they are a part of almost every social setting where children are involved.
So how do we give our kids lollies that make them feel included, but at the same time keep them safe? Who can we trust? Take a look at this list..

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 tasty and seriously versatile. No matter what you might have thought of swede up until today; this cake will be like colourful fireworks in your mouth! It’s moist, flavourful and very, very tasty! Read More

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 ceases to amaze me; it’s just THAT good!
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!

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. 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!
