    How to Make Gluten-Free Cocoa Pops

    Have you ever wanted to make your own healthy cereal for the week? Today I show you how to make Gluten-Free Cocoa Pops, using puffed rice, cocoa and a little bit of sweetness.  When my siblings and I were little, we would very rarely be allowed to eat sugary cereals. I even remember feeling guilt at nursery school because my teacher allowed me to make a Fruit Loop necklace and gasp – EAT IT TOO! When we were given sugary cereals like Strawberry Pops, Cocoa Pops and Fruit Loops, my parents would buy those small little boxes for us to ensure we didn’t overindulge. My sister and I would hoard…

    Braai Day is around the corner, and you guys requested yummy healthy salads, so here’s my recipe to make a Dairy-Free Creamy Coleslaw. This creamy dairy-free coleslaw is a classic tasting South African coleslaw, made with dairy-free mayonnaise.

The crunchy cabbage, sweet carrots and tangy mayo make me salivate! I feel…

    Ina Paarman’s Lemon Meringue made Gluten-Free

    Today we are baking a Gluten-Free version of Ina Paarman’s Lemon Meringue. Her easy to bake Lemon Meringue Pie mix contains the lemon curd and castor sugar to make a pie, but not the crust, so I decided to replace the Tennis Biscuits she suggests with Gluten-Free Digestive biscuits. A few weekends back, I spent hours trying to master a very complicated Lemon Meringue recipe. While I was happy with the results (it tasted delicious), it did not make it to the blog because I knew the process was too complicated for a blog that claims to post easy, simple recipes. Ina Paarman’s Lemon Meringue When I was looking through…
