Beef and Butternut Stew

I have realised that if nothing else, this blog is a shocking testimony to my sweet tooth. Looking over the ratio of sweet to savoury recipes I don’t think I’d be able to convince anyone that I’d choose… um… I don’t know … say steak over cake. Though I might, if I was in the… Continue reading Beef and Butternut Stew

Feed Four for NZ$20 – Creamy Garlic and Mushroom Chicken (Gluten Free)

I have been inspired/challenged by rising food costs and concurrent meal plans from major supermarkets that rely on cheap glutenous products for their ‘affordable meal suggestions’ to come up with some tasty, healthy(ish!), affordable meals that are also gluten free, for those of us who don’t have the option of reducing costs with cheap gluten.… Continue reading Feed Four for NZ$20 – Creamy Garlic and Mushroom Chicken (Gluten Free)

Easy Chicken

This blog post comes with massive apologies for the distinct lack of blogging that has been going on around here. I have yet to master looking after a baby and staying on top of the washing, washing up and keeping the house in a reasonable state, so there is little current hope of managing to… Continue reading Easy Chicken

Gluten Free Fried Fish

We live in rural New Zealand. Our nearest small town has a few takeaway places but the only one that I know is coeliac-safe is the local curry restaurant. Although the fish and chip shop offers gluten free options, they cook them in the same fryer as their gluten food and so those options are… Continue reading Gluten Free Fried Fish

Gluten Free Meatballs

A while ago, a gluten-eating friend of mine told me that she always uses grated potato instead of breadcrumbs in her meatballs, whether or not she is cooking gluten-free. These meatballs piggy back off that idea, but I blitz the potato with the onions and garlic as that is less work than grating potatoes and… Continue reading Gluten Free Meatballs

Feed Four for NZ$20 – Spinach and Chickpea Curry (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan)

After a long time of following recipes for curry spice mixes, I am becoming more confident in experimenting with my own. This has the advantage of being able to tailor the mix to my family’s taste preferences and avoiding spice mixes which either do or say that they may contain gluten. I am also finding… Continue reading Feed Four for NZ$20 – Spinach and Chickpea Curry (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan)

Feed 4 for NZ$20 – Spinach and Tomato Pasta Bake (Gluten Free)

Many conversations with friends lately have confirmed my own experience – food is getting more and more expensive. And following a gluten free diet, which is a medical necessity for those with coeliac disease, was expensive enough before prices seemed to start climbing so high so quickly! And so I have set myself a challenge… Continue reading Feed 4 for NZ$20 – Spinach and Tomato Pasta Bake (Gluten Free)

Stuffed Buns (Gluten Free)

If you’re looking for gluten free lunchbox inspiration, hopefully I have something for you in this recipe! These airy buns can be stuffed with whatever you like, although I highly recommend lots of cheese is included with any other ingredients! Although these taste best served warm from the oven, they can be wrapped once cool… Continue reading Stuffed Buns (Gluten Free)
