Glimpse into Foodie Friday week 7 2014 – Cinnamon

Good afternoon! Happy Foodie Friday!  Yes, I know. It is Saturday. Oops! The first Foodie Friday of the new series should have begun yesterday, but as most of us know, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has its moments which make a regular routine unrealistic! I may have to change Foodie Friday to a bi-monthly thing, rather than […] Read more…

Glimpse into passion pleasers

My mantra for baking is if it is healthy enough to eat for breakfast yet tastes deliciously naughty, you are on a winner! These cake squares fit this motto, and are super easy and quick to make!   All you need is: 1/4 cup nut butter (I used almond, brazil and cashew butter) 1/4 cup tahini 1/3 cup […] Read more…

Glimpse into New Year choc chip cookies

For New Year’s Eve, I decided to make a quick and easy batch of cookies. I know, I know…I make up a lot of cookie recipes! But I love them! So easy to make and so yummy to eat! I used a different combination of ingredients this time, and they turned out to be probably the […] Read more…

Glimpse into spiced pineapple syrup cake

With the wet weather recently, I have fancied a spiced fruity teacake! After an unsuccessful search with Mum one day for an open café that sold cake I could tolerate, I decided to sit at the kitchen bench and create one. This cake is moist, gooey and tropical! It is delicious and decadent warm, and great cold! Spiced […] Read more…

Glimpse into Gembles’ ultimate bowl of goodness

Glimpse into green pudding

Happy Hump Day! You have made it to Wednesday; the weekend is on its way! This, of course, has no relevance to me, as I have been too unwell to work since November, but I know a lot of you will be celebrating that you are over halfway!! With my body at the level of […] Read more…

Glimpse into berry oat bars & a useful recipe book

A few weeks ago, I received a copy of an eye opening recipe book that was so exciting for me to discover! It is called “Flying Apron’s Gluten-Free & Vegan Baking Book”, and is written by Jennifer Katzinger, who owns a bakery in Seattle. Oh how I would love to live near her bakery!! If anyone […] Read more…

Glimpse into choc nut cookies & choc nut smoothies

Cookies make me think of my little (well, not so little, but younger) brother, who lives in France, who has the nick name, among several others,  the Cookie Monster. He is the family’s sweet tooth, but I am finding that I am also developing quite the sweet tooth these days, which is ironic now that I eat a low […] Read more…

Glimpse into nut & seed, banana power bread

Last night, as I lay wide awake with my usual night time companion, insomnia, I brainstormed ideas to make a cake/bread which contained healthy ingredients. I wanted to create something that I didn’t need to feel guilty about eating, but tasted good, and would give me a hit of nutrition, energy and keep me feeling […] Read more…
