Book 2 Update and It’s All About Cake!

Image Text

I’ve started work on my second e-book with the intention of having it ready for the end of the summer. I’ve made the choice to make it a book dedicated to all different types of gluten and dairy free cakes. The most exciting thing about the book is that it will all be brand new recipes that I haven’t posted on the site.

I’m currently at the stage of developing the recipes and have started some of the photography. Here is a sneak peek:

Gluten and Dairy Free Tomato, Spinach and Meatball Soup

Image Text

I do enjoy a big bowl of soup at lunchtime but because I’m greedy I also seem to be hungry about an hour later. This recipe was based on a soup I had at a restaurant and also to meet the brief of a more filling soup recipe. You can cut down on the prep time for this recipe by buying pre-made gluten free meatballs, I know Tesco have these.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Fish Tortillas

Putting together a recipe for fish tortillas has been on my to do list for a while and I finally got round to it this weekend. I would normally just reach for the chicken when making tortillas but I had an amazing fish taco on my travels and it inspired me to try something a bit different.

I served mine with a little sprinkle of dairy free cheese, some dairy free mayonnaise and a handful of fresh spinach – perfect.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

It’s been quite cold again but thank goodness the wind and rain has stopped in Edinburgh for the last few days. The cold weather has made me crave warm filling breakfasts before I venture out to work. This apple and cinnamon oatmeal is super easy to make and is a great start to any day of the week.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate, Raspberry & Coconut Cupcakes

Image Text

I hadn’t made cupcakes for a while and I kind of had a craving for one. I wanted to use up some leftover dessicated coconut I had from making my granola so went with a coconut theme.

I paired it with the sharpness of fresh raspberries and the sweetness of the chocolate frosting.

A little bite of gluten and dairy free heaven.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Gingerbread Waffles

Image Text

I love the warming flavour of spices like cinnamon and ginger and try to put them in everything. When I’m making waffles I usually have a basic recipe I use and add additions to it like chocolate chips, fruit etc. I was feeling a bit adventurous this weekend so decided to have a go at making a brand new waffle recipe that gave a little nod to the gingerbread cake, hope you like it.

You could also use this recipe to make pancakes if you don’t have a waffle iron.

Enjoy!
