Pumpkin Seed & Fruit & Nut Chocolate Clusters GF


I think there's something very special about home made gifts and one of the major advantages in making your own chocolates is you can ensure that they are gluten free and/or dairy free. I'm really fond of fruit and nut chocolates but I've also been making my own chocolates with pumpkin seeds recently. In fact, I've become a quite addicted to dark chocolate and pumpkin seeds - you may remember my amazing bargain purchase of Landgarten chocolate covered pumpkin seeds which I talked about in the post about my October TVK box.

The Primal Kitchen Bars, Grain Free and SCD Legal


Not all fruit and nut bars are created equal as you will quickly realise once you've taken a bite out of one of these delicious bars. The Primal Kitchen (soon to be The Primal Pantry) was the brainchild of Suzie Walker. Struggling to find clean, healthy snacks for her daughter, she decided to create them herself from the fruit and nuts in her own pantry. The positive feedback she received encouraged Suzie to start her own business, which is now flourishing and expanding to a place near you!

My November TVK Box


Two TVK boxes arrived at my door this time - oh my! Check out the beauty box underneath, I can't reveal the contents since it's a Christmas present but if you're interested in getting one for yourself, you need to subscribe here. The contents of my regular box were well up to expectations and of great quality - which isn't a surprise because the contents of all the boxes I've received to date have never failed to please!

Vegetable Pot Pie GF SCD


There's nothing better than to come home to a warming and comforting pot pie, especially during the cold Winter months. This grain free vegetable pie features a crumbly crust made from almond flour and extra virgin olive oil and a selection of winter vegetables bursting with colour and taste all immersed in a sweet onion and herb gravy and not a grain in sight.

A Few Things I Like - 2


I was supposed to be posting a recipe this weekend but the daylight ran out on me today and I couldn't take the photos so I thought I'd share with you a few more things I like as a follow up post to the one I shared in September. I'm going to experiment with taking photos at night so if anyone has any tips please share!

My October TVK Box


As some of you already know, I subscribe to The Vegan Kind and receive a wonderful box of goodies every month. Usually most products are suitable for a gluten free diet but unfortunately this month two of the treats weren't! But then I discovered a little pot hidden beneath the large onion bhaji snack bag which more than made up for my slight disappointment!

Butternut Squash, Carrot & Quinoa Nut Roast GF


I've been making this awesome nut roast regularly throughout the Summer. Quick and easy to prepare, it's packed full of protein from the quinoa and the nuts and the butternut squash and carrots give it a subtle sweetness as well as a lovely warm, orangey tinge.
