Mmmm, cold rolls.  I have been craving them since my picnic with Ash in the park, and needed to make a set for myself!  As I was off to a dinner party, it was the perfect excuse to make cold rolls: you really do need to make them for a bunch of people! I love […]

Daring Bakers’ Challenge: Gluten-Free Nanaimo Bars

You may remember from my Tofu Satay post, that I’ve joined an online cooking challenge: The Daring Cooks.  The group cooks a new (and shhh… secret) recipe every month, and forms a community around cooking the same recipe.  They also have a baking group: The Daring Bakers.  And I am hooked… this month was also […]
