Grain free, nut free, refined sugar free, dairy free biscuit recipe

Grain free, nut free, refined sugar free and dairy free biscuit recipe
Two weeks ago on my facebook page, I promised a grain free (and therefore gluten free), dairy free, nut free and refined sugar free biscuit. Then I hurt my back, and was so low on supplies, I couldn’t even play with the recipe. Today, I finally got to my dry goods supply store, so tonight, while Master B cooked the BBQ, I whipped up the biscuits and am now procrastinating cleaning my kitchen while I type up the recipe for you all. Ahhh, the things I do for you lovely people! Continue reading

What’s cooking Thursday? Chicken soup, apple and peach crumble

It’s day 4 of school holidays, and my back is just starting to come good now. I had promised my kids that I’d take them to see a couple of the new movies that have come out, so today we went off to see Despicable Me 2. It was a great movie, all three of my kids (aged 6, 9, 10) enjoyed it, and Miss O managed to stay most of the time in her seat 🙂

Sausage rolls and carrot cake

I’ve noticed lately that my kids seem to be given a lot of lollies and chocolates at school. They won table points, here’s a lollipop. It’s someone’s birthday, here’s a freddo. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not completely opposed to sugar, I just try to limit how much my kids eat it, and also, make sure that if they are having treats, that they are perhaps home cooked cake or a reasonable quality chocolate. Yesterday my kids had a market day at school, and although I asked them not to buy too much junk food, of course, they loaded up on toffees, smarties, mixed lollies and cakes. I probably would have done the same at their age. >
