Gluten Free Roasted Beetroot and Tomato Tart

I am typing this to you as we sit on the beach in Lombok sipping on a fresh coconut, definitely worse ways to start the day. Whilst we put together our first proper post on our adventure so far here is a little post we forget we had about a dinner we rustled up before we left. Enjoy… After watching an episode of Masterchef the other night I decided they make cooking look deceptively easy, I mean if these ‘everyday people’ can create a masterpiece Gordon would be proud of in under 5seconds then surely I can attempt a gluten free tart? No? You don’t believe it either? To be fair I don’t blame you. I’m not talking about no ready made pastry tart, I’m going for the full works, and trying to adapt it in our own little way. I mean all that butter? No thank you. Surprisingly the hardest part wasn’t making the dough for the pastry, this was pretty straightforward despite missing a rolling pin I’d say we did an alright job. It was …

Smith & Daughters

I haven’t been very well recently, but don’t worry that’s a whole other story I won’t bore you with, annoyingly what it does mean though is that I have to be even more careful with what I eat, making dinner dating slightly hard. Trying to find a restaurant that will be a safe choice is a bit of a mission, Jonny being stubborn (*sweet) refuses to pick somewhere he’d like to go because apparently that’s not sensible, bless him. Queue a hasty last minute google to find somewhere we hadn’t yet been and there it was, I’m annoyed I hadn’t thought of it immediately, Smith & Daughters. This incredible looking vegan eatery that I have been wanting to try for weeks. So we wrapped ourselves up in more layers than style because now the lovely Melbourne is creeping so quickly into winter you’d be mistaken in thinking we were back in the tropics of London. That wind is brutal. But Smith&Daughters definitely eased my winter mood. As soon as you walk in the vibe here …

Gluten Free Banana Cake

When you are stuck on a farm in the middle of nowhere in Australia you have a lot of time to fill and a lot less options available to you. Those three months aged me in ways I will never forget but one good thing came out of it, I have perfected my banana bread skills down to a tasty T. This is the easiest recipe to make and I want to throw it out there that compared to most this one is relatively healthy with a few sneaky additions and changes. Give it a go this weekend, so simple. The hard parts not eating it all in one go and I commend anyone with the willpower to resist.
