Devonshire Jams and Chutneys!

On a mission to finish my assignment today, I stumbled into the Pannier Market in Barnstaple, North Devon, and found Roseann Parkin. Rose was flaunting a delightful array of jars full of all kinds of concotions. From Picalilli to Mango Chutney and Blackberry Jam, they all looked delicious. On a mission…

Penne Penne!

Crafted in the Italian Alps and made with a new recipe – I expected big things from my little sample bag of Glutafin Penne Pasta. (PIP Code 211-5152) Being a massive pasta fan at heart, I struggled for years to find the perfect gluten free version. A lot of the…

Lemon Drizzle Cake

Lemon drizzle cake is definitely one of my favourites! Sweet yet not too sweet, with a crunchy sugary coating, this is a winner for all. This lemon drizzle cake, from Steph’s Free From Cakes, is the epitome of what makes this sort of cake so good. Amazingly moist, this generous…

Chipolatas and Chips!

I was very excited to receive some of the Black Farmer’s Daughter’s Premium Pork Chipolatas through the post the other day, and they looked so good, they went straight into the frying pan! I really admire The Black Farmer for his work, delicious products and his campaigns for Coeliacs. So…

It’s back to my favourites, Kent & Fraser, for another box of delicious biscuits – I can’t get enough of this company’s goodies! When they sent me a box of three samples, I couldn’t wait to tuck into them, and they were definitely worth it! These Vanilla Butter Crunch Sweet…

Battenburg Cake!!

I was so excited about this, the title deserved two exclamation marks… I used to LOVE Battenburg cake. As in, I would eat it whenever I could get my hands on it! When I became gluten-free, I missed it desperately, but eventually the pink and yellow gap in my life…

Egg-Free Choc Chip Cookies

Unfortunately, it seems that once you have one food allergy or intolerance, other things tend to develop. If you can’t eat eggs AND you’re gluten free, then these biscuits from Doves Farm are perfect for you! Even better, these Chocolate Chip Cookies are organic too! Light and airy, these are…

Which bread for what?

So the main staple food us Coeliacs miss is bread – but with so many options on the market and so many ways to use them, which bread is best for which meal? I decided to find out…. Perfect for… Garlic Bread Buttery, garlicy and soft – all you would…

Savoury Snacking Essentials!!

Gingerbread People

Before I became a Coeliac, I used to love gingerbread men, but unfortunately I’ve never had them since. Until, that is, I received these two delighful “gingerbread people” through the post from Steph’s Free From Cakes, and I was filled with childhood nostalgia. Looking irresistable with their cute little raisin…

Childhood Treats

When I was little I remember that my Mum would never let us have chocolate cereals, unless we went camping and got a variety pack. Now I’m gluten-free, I haven’t really indulged in chocolate cereals much, but as soon as I saw these in the shop, I had to get…

Fresh Bread, Perfect Toast

When I received Juvela’s Gluten-free Fresh Bread through the post, I was amazed at how soft it felt. This white sliced bread really was as soft as it felt, contrary to the usual stark, crumbly bread that lines the gluten-free shelves. Baked and ordered fresh to your pharmacy, this bread…

Delicious Carrot Cake

When I got a package through the post today from Steph’s Free From Cakes, I was very excited! One of the goodies encased in the bubble wrap was a scrummy looking slice of Carrot Cake (available here!) It look delicious and I couldn’t resist tucking in straight away! Decorated with…

Dunkin’ Good!

There’s nothing like a good biscuit with a warm cuppa tea. And these Asda Chocolate Chip Cookies are my favourite for dunking! They’re crunchy but not crumbly, the perfect concistency for biscuits. They’re also packed full of chocolately chunks. Normally gluten free products are sparcely filled with yummy bits such…

Triple Chocolate Fudge Heaven!

We used to sell Byron Bay cookies at work, and they looked so delicious it made me truly upset that I couldn’t try them. But then, when I went to visit my boyfriend this weekend, to my shock and delight his Mum had found GLUTEN FREE Byron Bay cookies!! And…

This Snack is Crackers!

Oh dear, remind me not to try a pun title again…. Today I found some Tru-Free High Fibre Crackers in my cupboard, and decided to make a yummy snack of them with cherry tomatoes and cream cheese. The crackers really bore a strong resemblance to how I remember non-gluten free…

Spanish Meatballs – Smokin!

When I saw Sainsbury’s Freefrom Beef Meatballs on the shelf, I just had to have them! I’m a complete sucker for meatballs (of the food kind – thankyou for your smutty jokes Miss Welland!), and whilst I usually love making my own super-garlicy ones with pasta, I decided that I…

A Quick Stir-Fry Dish

I decided tonight that I really fancied a stir fry. Trouble was, after a long day at Uni I was pretty short on food and too tired to walk to Asda, so here’s something cheap and easy I threw together using what I could find in the cupboard! For this…

Ciabattas Galore!

Featuring on my lunch plate today was Dietary Specials  Ciabatta Rolls. These rolls come in packs of four, and I managed to grab mine in Asda – a new addition to their gluten free collection! Although you get four rolls in the pack, they are tiny! I attempted to fill…

Pizza Galore!!

Today I decided to try the Dietary Specials Gluten Free Pizza Bases and make my own pizza! Although the bases are quite small, they are really delicious and make an awesome pizza. I like the freedom of being able to top it with what I like! I decided to opt…
