Gluten free chocolate peanut butter cheesecake

Each birthday, I make my Dad a variation on a cheesecake. One year it was Nigella, one year it was Jamie, one year it was Nigella but with that sour cream top. The past few years, however, things have been getting a little inventive. Last year it was my own recipe for a cheesecake, topped  … Read more

Brown butter, sea salt and quinoa flour brownie cookies

I mean, is there anything brown butter can’t improve? Because brownie cookies are good, but brown butter brownie cookies are better. I’ve been toying around with these brownie cookies for a while (and promising the recipe on Instagram even longer, soz) and they’re finally here. The delay is due in part to illness, but mostly due  … Read more

Gluten free, FODMAP friendly chocolate cake

I was thinking of naming this ‘the chocolate cake you’d bring to a family lunch with Aunty Sheryl and your dairy intolerant cousin in one room,’ but that’s a little lengthy, and perhaps a bit offensive to Aunty Sheryl. To me, this cake tastes like my memory of Coles cake (fellow ‘strayans, you know) which  … Read more

Gluten free cheesy chickpea waffles

Chickpea waffles. In case you hadn’t guessed, this is a recipe that was created in seemingly another life – back when legumes didn’t bother me, and I didn’t live and breathe by the FODMAP acronym. Interestingly, I got a lot of requests on Instagram for this recipe when I changed my website over, so here  … Read more

Gluten free, low FODMAP chocolate brioche

Oh boy. This chocolate brioche has been a long time in the making. Well, a gluten free chocolate, yeasted bread, has been, at least. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been trying my hand at a chocolate babka, and for as long as I can remember, it’s been an absolute failure. Gluten free  … Read more

Marbled chocolate, sea salt, hazelnut and Nutella bark

Before we begin, let’s establish a fairly obvious fact: this is not a health food. Nutella is not a health food, nor are two different varieties of chocolate, nor is combining the two and sprinkling a few nuts on top.  Now that we’ve cleared the air, let’s establish, the next, even more obvious fact: marbled  … Read more

Salt and vinegar roasted smashed potatoes

These salted and vinegar smashed roasted potatoes started off as various iterations of the final dish: burnt butter and vinegar, vinegar, dill and basil, basil, dill and burnt butter. Sometimes, it seems, less actually is more, and 4-5 ingredients are all you need to make the crunchiest, most delicious ‘side dish’ that will be potentially  … Read more

Vegan, FODMAP friendly, cheesy hasselback potato bake

If you hadn’t noticed, this vegan, cheesy hasselback potato bake is a riff on the vegan mac’n cheese that I posted recently. I decided to make said riff because some people, like myself, have issues with grains. I’ve briefly discussed it before, but at the moment my digestive system is doing terribly with grains, regardless  … Read more

Gluten free, vegan, low FODMAP mac n’ cheese

Whenever I’m feeling sorry for my FODMAP self, I think of the low FODMAP vegans. As a general rule, vegans (or the vegans I see on Instagram, please forgive me) seem to eat a lot of fruit, and a lot of legumes – both heavily restricted on the FODMAP diet. If I couldn’t rely on  … Read more

Chocolate zucchini sheet cake with avocado

What is a zucchini doing in a chocolate cake, you might be asking? I’m glad you are, because I am about to tell you. The humble zucchini is somewhat of a FODMAP friendly superfood – it is filling, mostly liquid, rather bland (no offence, zucchini, I’m bland too) and can take on literally any flavour  … Read more
