This chilli recipe is a great versatile family meal, it is healthy, thrifty and delicious. You can serve it with rice, use it to fill tacos along with some salad, or use it as a topping for nachos. You can adjust the amount of chilli to suit your family. To make a really kid friendly version, only use a ¼ tsp of chilli to begin with and then if you think that is too mild, you can always add more next time. You can also “hide” any number of veggies you like with this recipe. I used 4 extra large…

This recipe is an adaptation of the whole orange cake recipe from Rhonda at Down to Earth.  The orange cake is delicious and super easy to make, but at the moment I have an abundance of mandarins so I thought I’d make an adaptation.  I washed the mandarins and cut them in half to remove most of the seeds.  The mandarin version turned out beautifully and is a great way to use up mandarins, so why not give it a try while mandarins are in season.  This cake works well with either regular self raising flour or gluten free flour…

I have found making gluten free pizza dough a bit of a challenge, finally this weekend I had some success.  In my opinion, it still doesn’t really compare to our family’s traditional pizza dough, but this is the best yet for gluten free pizza!  Sorry about the disclaimer, but if I didn’t need to eat gluten free; I would opt for our traditional recipe. That being said, this recipe did make a very good pizza, so I shouldn’t complain!  I use the Aldi gluten free flour, and find it the best. Another trick I have found when making gluten free…

This has become the favourite cookie recipe in our house. The great thing about this recipe is that you can make some simple substitutions to make a variety of delicious cookies. Once you’ve made the cookie dough it can be frozen in “logs” for a great, quick homemade treat. This is really handy to have on hand for unexpected guests; you can have cookies on the table in no time at all! This recipe makes a huge batch so it is quite economical; one batch makes roughly 80 cookies. The recipe can be used with either gluten free SR flour…

This is a fun and easy slice to make for a treat.  It can be easily converted to a gluten free recipe if you wish.  I made this on the weekend and it was a hit!  I substituted homemade plum jam because that is what I had on hand. I also used up some extra large marshmallows, which were in the cupboard.  I just cut the marshmallows into slices to make them work. The marshmallows I used were from Costco and were gluten free, but if you don’t need to eat gluten free then any marshmallow will be fine. Ingredients…

roast lamb

Slow cooking is a wonderful way to achieve a perfectly cooked leg of lamb with very little fuss.   It is not only easy, but yields the most perfectly cooked, tender lamb you could imagine. Lamb can be a little expensive, but I always look out for when it is on sale and buy a couple of legs to put in the freezer. One 2kg/4.5lb leg of lamb does our family for two meals. The beauty of the slow cooker is that you can pop the lamb on in the morning and then leave it to cook virtually unattended all day.…

gfbananamuffins

Banana muffins are a wonderful use for over-ripe bananas, in fact the more sorry looking, the better!  These muffins are both simple and delicious.  Next time you have some over-ripe bananas give them a whirl, you’ll be very pleased with the results.  Either regular SR flour or gluten free flour works equally well, so feel free to use whichever suits you and your family.  I find the Aldi brand “Has No” gluten free flour yields excellent results and is very economical.  The recipe also works well as a loaf cake, just adjust the cooking time accordingly. These muffins also freeze…
