Apple Cider Donuts (g/f)

Thank you for this donut recipe. I am off to buy the donut tins.

I Need a Feed!

IMG_7465

For christmas I was given two donut pans, an absolutely delightful gift considering that donuts aren’t such a big thing over here. I was keen on giving donuts a go as soon as possible, but I was stuck for recipes. I wanted to do something straightforward, but which would also be delicious, and would be great to share with friends. I scrawled through a few sites, and finally landed upon a delish looking recipe from Gluten Free on a Shoestring. I resolved to give this recipe a go, and was more than a little bit surprised at how well it went down.

This recipe turned out to be amazing, and I mean a-ma-zing. It was oh my god worthy, and it was so simple, and so straightforward, and so utterly delicious that I almost couldn’t believe it. My first attempt at making homemade, gluten free donuts was a…

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese with Goat’s Cheese

Love the combinations of cheese.

Gluten Free Fabulous

macandcheeseFor this macaroni and cheese, I’m using a combination of goat’s cheese, cream cheese and parmesan cheese to make a warming and creamy dinner. The garlic and basil work well together to give it a bit more flavor without taking away from the cheese. I’d been craving goat’s cheese again and this gave me my fix.

macandcheese5Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups cooked small gluten free elbow pasta
1/2 medium white onion, diced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 ounces plain goat’s cheese
4 ounces cream cheese, cubed

2 tablespoons dried basil
1 garic clove, minced
3 tablespoons gluten free bread crumbs
1/4 cup fresh shredded parmesan
salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 350F and…

Snickerdoodle Blondies (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Luckily I have the weekend ahead to try this one out.

A Bit of Nutmeg!

So, I’m actually finding some time to bake once in awhile, especially since I have such a sweet tooth! Thank goodness you have to eat extra calories while you’re nursing! YES! LOL. Hubby’s been busy doing yet another reno project (YAY new laundry, mud and bathrooms on the way!) so I wanted to do something nice to reward him and satisfy my sugar craving all at once, why not make us both happy right?! His fave is snickerdoodles, but i have to be honest and say that GF snickerdoodle cookies suck! LOL I’ve tried alot of different recipes and they always come out flat and too crunchy and it frustrates me, but these……omg, these are to die for! They’re absolutely perfect, soft and chewy and flavorful, but in a bar form. I will warn you, these are super addicting, and we can vouch for that because the whole pan disappeared…

Lime Lamingtons (Gluten Free)

A clever twist on the traditional lamington.

Inspired By Boo

Lime Lamingtons

What better way to celebrate Australia Day than by baking these lime lamingtons.

The recipe has been sitting in my kitchen for about a year and I honestly don’t know why I didn’t make them earlier. Such a fun fruity twist on traditional lamingtons.
