Picture book step by step guide

This step by step guide is how I created my picture book Celia’s Coeliac Story which is now being sold on Amazon Worldwide. I drew my illustrations on a watercolour pad, and used Aquatico watercolour pencils and a brush to colour. I then took pictures of each individual illustration, and edited using Photoshop, In design and Microsoft word.

Over the Easter bank holiday, I travelled to Brighton for a gluten free Brighton weekend! When the sun comes out everyone rushes to the seaside. Growing up in a seaside town, I know just how crazy we get as soon as we get a whiff of sun.

Banana and Raspberry Walnut Loaf Cake

This banana and raspberry walnut loaf cake gets a big thumbs up from friends and family. I have made lots of versions of banana cake over the years, and love mixing with different ingredients like sultanas, or walnuts or other fruit. This time I made a banana and raspberry walnut loaf cake, and used brown soft sugar instead of demerara sugar which is why it is darker in colour. I love making loaf cakes as they are easy to carry when visiting friends.

Rizogalo homemade rice pudding

 Rizogalo, homemade rice pudding can be enjoyed hot or cold! This is a favourite sweet dessert in my family, especially my yiayia! This is nice for little ones too as it is soft and squishy! It is made with rice, mixed with water or milk and other ingredients such as cinnamon and raisins. Cinnamon and vanilla pods can be added to make it sweet. I used Arborio rice for this which is available in many supermarkets. 

Yummy Lamb Hotpot

Yummy lamb hotpot is the tasty meal of the week! It’s delicious and warm, using lamb mince, chili peppers and sweet potatoes, this will feed around four people. As I’m sure you know, lamb can be expensive, but by using lamb mince, this will save you the money and your meal will still have the flavours you love in a hot pot!
