I don't pretend to be the world's greatest cook. I'm not really a great fan of slaving over a hot stove... so all my recipes are tried and true, simple and easy to follow. they require no fancy ingredients or fancy gadgets. They are great for baking-phobes, nervous nellies and kids.

We began a gluten-free journey some years back and many of the recipes have adaptations for allergies. More recently, we tried to reduce our refined sugar intake, so you'll find a section sharing my take on some favourite simple sugar-free treats. And of course, there's a party food section with step-by-step instructions for creating some party awesomeness in the simplest easiest way...
