Carrot Cake in a Microwave

I have never made a cake in a microwave before and was intrigued by how my carrot cake in a microwave would turn out! This carrot cake was very moist and incredibly delicious! I was a little unsure about making a cake this way, but I think it turned out pretty well!

Sourdough Mess Cookies

I recently purchased gluten free cookies from a company called Sourdough Mess. The company was created by Maria Stafano who decided to set up a micro bakery in her flat in East London. Maria currently specialises in making vegan and gluten free cookies as well as vegan artisan bread to deliver straight to your door. Sourdough mess can also be found at various markets and free from events.

Lamb Pasta Bake

I absolutely love lamb pasta bake. As you all have probably guessed, I don’t like faffing when it comes to my food. I like making grub that tastes good and I try to use ingredients that don’t cost the earth. Bish bash bosh job done! This week, I made a lamb pasta bake, with courgettes, spring onions and parmesan cheese, with a few large spoonfuls of Greek yoghurt.

Sweet Potato with Leek and Pepper Rice

I never used to be a massive fan of sweet potatoes until recently when I was getting bored of having the same old same old and wanted to spice up my life! Sweet potatoes are a good way of changing up recipes and you can do a lot with them. You can mash them, cut them into wedges, make thin fries, make a topping with them and more! You can create many exciting recipes.

Easy Peasy Energy Bars

We all need that little boost of energy to get us through the day. There are lots of energy bars available out there to buy but they are quite expensive. So, as another option, you could make them at home and make a big batch that you can keep in the fridge! I have made my own energy bars and they were easy to make and took me about 10 minutes to prepare!

My Coeliac Journey 5 years on

I cannot quite believe it has been 5 years since I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease. It has been quite a journey, from struggling to find places that catered for my needs and having Coeliac disease mocked by certain individuals and acquaintances who couldn’t quite understand how much harm gluten was doing to my body.
