Wild about Wildcraft: Dream gluten-free bakery in Leeds

It’s rare for me to feel enthusiastic about pastry. Long gone are my beloved Costa chocolate twists. And those melt-in-the-mouth baklavas from my old local bakery (Ciao Ciao in Durham, a must-try for any gluten-eaters reading this) are dreams now as flakey as the delicate […]

Easy peasy lemon cupcakes (VEGAN + GLUTEN FREE)

I’ve been daydreaming about these gluten free vegan lemon cupcakes since their cloud-like frostings first touched my lips last month. It was the birthday of my friend and vegan babe Ami in February – so obviously I needed to bake cakes. Fortunately, my mam has […]

Give me a gluten-free recipe without fancy ingredients, that requires zero baking skills, and I’ll be your BFF for life. And yes – I’m hoping this white chocolate peanut butter cups recipe will make me loads of friends. It’s the only reason I’m sharing it. […]

Vegan & gluten-free Cornettos due to hit the UK

Just one Cornettooooooo! It’s gluten-freeeee! Well it is now. And you can (kind of) thank PETA. I’m delighted to confirm the animal rights charity has just announced that Cornetto is bringing its dairy-free, gluten-free ice cream to good old Blighty, due to be released in February […]

Starbucks milk coffees no longer safe for coeliacs

Two bits of Starbucks gluten-free news this week. Both completely opposite of each other. The good news: The chain have introduced a Starbucks gluten-free chicken and pesto panini – a hot sandwich, warmed in its own wrapper to avoid cross-contamination. You can get it most […]

Why I’m fed up of giving up

Why I’m fed up of giving up

Fresh starts are brilliant. I love the concept of New Year: optimism, goal-setting, washing off the past and getting excited for the 12 months ahead. But I won’t be falling down the same rabbit-hole as last year, or the year before – I won’t be […]

RECIPE: Gluten free Christmas pudding cheesecake aka your new favourite dessert

I’m gonna get one thing straight – I don’t like Christmas pudding. I’m sure no one likes it really, that’s why we set it on fire year after year. But my Mam spends days, weeks, prepping this fruity boy. I’d be a complete heartless bitch […]

Gluten-free Santa Ponsa: Where to eat & stay in Mallorca’s coastal gem

Gluten-free Santa Ponsa: Where to eat & stay in Mallorca’s coastal gem

Blue WKD, concussed Brits and Bob Marley lighters are all things I associate with Mallorca. Yes, I’m talking about Magaluf – the stag-and-hen-stuffed resort never not in the Star or Sun with 50 snaps of sunburnt Brits fighting/peeing/sexing (or, quite often, all three) on “the Strip”. But then I discovered […]

21 fab gluten-free brands you need to know + Allergy Show North review

It was the words, “there’s gluten-free fish and chips over there” that did it for me. Straight from the mouth of a Coeliac UK team member, I felt like I was in a wonderland of gluten-free brands. Well actually, I was. I made the trip […]

Gluten-free Greggs: Are the bakery’s new soups safe for coeliacs?

Gluten-free Greggs: Are the bakery’s new soups safe for coeliacs?

There’s been a lot of excitement surrounding the gluten-free Greggs range. But there’s also been a lot of anti-climaxes. The first being that the chain WASN’T DOING GLUTEN-FREE PASTIES. Lord, what I’d give for a Festive Bake. Anyway, the bakery launched a gluten-free porridge, which […]
