Another Promised Recipe!

WOW - two posts in two days, and both recipes to boot! However, no photos for this one :-(!  I was going to include two birthday cakes I have made following this recipe in the past few months (it is my go-to no-fail always-comes-out cake) ! But then realised that after my computer died, I still haven't had all my photos put back (they are safe and sound thankfully) ; have only got photos since October on here - and none of these include the chocolate cake! Hopefully, one day, when I get everything sorted - I may remember to edit this post and include some of the pics of the cake... maybe! Anyway - this is for you  Leonie ; we spoke about it on instagram a wee while ago and I have finally got around to blogging the recipe as promised! One Bowl Gluten-Free (and dairy-free) Chocolate Cake 1.5 c gluten-free flour 1/2 c cocoa 1 c sugar 1/2 tsp salt 2 tsp baking soda 1.5 tsp gum (I use xanthan) 5 tbsp cooking oil (I use olive) 1 tbsp vinegar (I use bal

And Finally...

Another blog post!!! Oh - and a recipe I have been promising! Potato Burgers: Ingredients: 8 Potatoes (I used 6 potatoes and 2 kumera for added flavour) 1/4c plain flour (I used gluten-free of course) 1/2tsp baking powder 3 eggs A pinch salt and pepper (to taste) 250g beef mince 1/2 onion 2 tsp minced garlic 1 egg 1/4 plain flour (or breadcrumbs - as above, gluten-free for me ) Oil as needed 1) Peel and grate all 8 potatoes (I cheated and put them through my food processor, making this part of the prep much quicker). Then peel and chop finely, (or grate) , the half onion. 2) Mix together the grated potato, flour, baking powder, 3 eggs, and salt and pepper in one bowl. 3) In a second bowl mix the beef mince, onion, garlic, 1 egg, and flour/bread crumbs until well combined. 4) Heat some oil in the frying pan over medium heat (I used my electric frying pan) , and drop a tablespoon of potato mixture into the hot frying pan. Spread and fl

From Famine to Feast...

I am still here, promise!!!  Since we have come home from holiday, life has been BUSY & it doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon! I am loving it, but with 'lil M still up every single night, I am exhausted!!!  I finally had a free evening last night, & was going to blog - but wouldn't you know it, the internet crashed... I was not impressed. There went all my good intentions up in smoke (& my good mood, grrrr)!!!! Anyway, just popping in briefly while the small child actually sleeps (he was up at 8pm, 10pm, 1am & 3am... then up for the day at 6am. At 2am Button fell out of bed; it was a LONG night) & the big one is colouring in, & constantly talking whilst she does!  I have a list of about 11 different idea's for posts... so one day soon it'll turn from a famine here, into a feast - but it'll have to wait until I get another quiet evening, combined with internet!!!   I need to sign off now, I am SO tired I do

Blogging Mojo BACK!

I hope anyway! Currently I have like 50-thousand (okay, so slight exaggeration there) posts floating through my head; think I'd better write some of these down so I don't forget them! I know my  sis-in-law  starts writing them in Word first, so she doesn't forget them; and as she completes each article, she posts it (at least she used to) ! I tried this once, wrote out the first line of a few different posts - but ended up deleting them all, as I couldn't remember, even slightly, what the posts were meant to be about! Really didn't work for me... I think I need a small notebook, and dedicate a page per article idea, and jot down notes to include as I think / remember things. But I am digressing, again! I have finally downloaded all my photos from this Christmas / Holiday, and have sorted them into appropriate months / days (well, my new photo editing programme has anyway) ! So I thought I'd start off fairly simply, and just share these with you...
