Christmas Gift Recipes, Gluten Free Tiffin And Pecan Crumble Cookies

As I’ve got older I’ve definitely become less obsessed with presents and the “stuff” that comes with Christmas. It’s much more about quality time with family, catching up with friends, long wintery walks, cosy Christmas films and spending a lot of time in the kitchen. I still love the gift giving part of it and really like to take my time and think about what that person would really love.

The Body Event and The Best Muffin Recipe EVER!

The Body post 4_Fotor

Sunday was my fourth The Body event and I can honestly say they have been the best mornings of my year. The Body event is a Sunday morning to boost your body, mind and soul and this September one felt more needed than ever, for me and for my beautiful guests. The group was smaller this time and I felt a overwhelming sense of sisterhood in the Covent Garden hidden gem SIX3NINE which has been the location for the event so far.

Gluten Free Carrot Cake

You honestly won’t notice the difference between this delicious gluten free healthy carrot cake to your standard shop bought sugar laden carrot cake. I have such a sweet tooth and this certainly satisfied it even though it only contains coconut palm sugar as the sweetner which is a great alternative to normal sugar as it has a lower glycemic index so won’t make your blood sugar spike.

Healthy Chocolate Raspberry Bake

Raspberry Bake

My boyfriend always moans that I never follow a recipe word for word but I don’t really see that as cooking/baking if you do- it’s just reading and following instructors.  If you don’t have something or don’t like one of the ingredients then change it! If it turns out awful then who cares! For instance- my boyfriend said “why did you feel the need to put raspberries in this cake?” he he but for me- the raspberries totally work! They add a sweet fruity gooey texture to this choccie bake!
