Snow-time survival

Waking up on a chilly winter’s morning, you sleepily draw the blinds to reveal a glistening dusting of white outside. The world looks beautiful – still, silent and stunningly sparkling, you can’t help but feel a well of childish excitment start to awaken in you. That first crunch on perfect,…

Sausages to die for…

I seem to be going through a bit of a phase of eating sausages at the moment – after getting bored of eating so many bacon sandwiches it seemed sausage baps were the next logical step! And if you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I…

Sarah Bars!

When I first started going out with my boyfriend Steve (some four years ago now!) I remember the first gluten free snack that Steve’s mum ever bought me, and since then it has become a cupboard staple! Oddly enough, it’s sometimes the products you use all the time that you…

Glutafin Fresh Bread

Fresh Fibre Rolls from Juvela

When Juvela sent me some of their new Fresh Fibre Rolls, I was a bit suprised when I pulled a flat looking roll out of the bag. However, despite the unusual shape of these rolls, there were suprisingly delicious, and I discovered that less is now officially more. Flat and…
