My workshops provide a great excuse to bake some cakes… and brownies, and cheesecakes!

Most of you would be aware that I started a new business six months ago http://www.theinklingeffect.com.au which has been sapping a lot of my apparent spare time (’cause there’s so much of that floating around with two kids under 3!).
The only time I do get to cook creatively is when I am whipping up some supper to take to the evening workshops I host on Social Media, Content marketing and blogging.

Middle Eastern orange cake with spiced syrup (gluten and dairy free)

We’ve all had a moment when we need to create something sweet for our gluten and/or dairy free guests…. and sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start? Well here is your answer.

I always receive great feedback on my Flourless Chocolate Orange cake at parties (it is also dairy free!)… so I thought it about time I post a variation I created last November…

I was a bit bored with always turning to the same dessert option for my gluten and dairy free buddies, so here is a twist on the same recipe. As you can see in the photo, it can also be served up as individual desserts for a more ‘gourmet’ dining experience.

Almond crackers – gluten and dairy free, the perfect detox food!

It’s detox time for me at the moment. I’m on my third week, 3kg down and starting to feel great. I’ve said I will continue doing it until we move into our new house (another 5-6 weeks!).

I did a massive detox about 5 years ago, guided by a wonderful naturopath at Glow. For four months I cut out caffeine, dairy, wheat, red meat, fruit (except grapefruit), potatoes, corn, mushrooms, anything processed… you get the idea (it was really restrictive!!!). Along with all that I was systematically cleansing each internal organ of my body… bowel, stomach, kidney, liver using herbal tablets and powders.

You’re wondering why would I put myself through such deprivation? Apart from needing to lose some weight and get healthier, I was suffering from headaches (almost daily), my hands were peeling, I had really bad hay-fever that had come on when I turned 30, and I felt really sluggish.
