Gluten and Dairy Free Cupcakes

Apparently the 18th of October is Chocolate Cupcake Day. When I first started cooking gluten free I found that chocolate or cocoa helped hide the gluten free taste.  Hence I made a lot of chocolate slice and chocolate brownies.   I also found that it was very easy to sub your milk of choice (eg.,… Continue reading Gluten and Dairy Free Cupcakes

Gluten free and Dairy Free Lasagna

Lasagna was one of my favourite childhood dinners.  For my birthday dinner, whilst growing up, I would either choose lasagna or corned beef.  I used to make this dish quite regularly as an adult until my son and husband both discovered their food intolerances.

Gluten Free & Dairy Free Shortbread

This is another of my go to recipes that people who aren't gluten & dairy free also enjoy eating.  My husband likes these biscuits iced but shortbread is of course usually eaten without icing.  At Christmas time I usually make Christmas tree or star shaped biscuits with this recipe.  These biscuits were on the menu… Continue reading Gluten Free & Dairy Free Shortbread
