This year my Christmas Holiday will include platters of cold turkey, ham & cheese with some gluten free foccacia, crisp green salads, a warm potato salad and the obligatory plate of prawns (personally, I'm not a fan!). There will be mango lassi's enjoyed by my Dad, brother and his gorgeous girl, D, whilst the rest of us will have cooling lemon lime bitters and some crisp white wine.Then maybe a slice of cool gluten free christmas ice cream pudding for dessert and a rum ball or two! You see, it's just too hot to have hot turkey's + pudding in 35Deg Celcius weather here in Australia! One day I will have a chilly white Christmas and enjoy all the 'warmth' of Christmas food, but until then, it's bathers, sunscreen and sandy white beaches in Margaret River!
Before I pop on my bathers and head to the beach though, I'll be busy in the kitchen, baking, baking, baking! You see I just have to bake gluten free goodies to gift to friends and family (and even some lucky co-workers) which is why when I put my hand up to help out the lovely Aubree from Living Free (of dairy, sugar and gluten) with a Top Ten Tuesday post I decided that as well as being gluten, dairy and/or sugar free recipes that they all need to be able to be wrapped or boxed up as Christmas gifts!
Aubree put the word out a little while ago that she needed a hand hosting the Top Ten Tuesday posts whilst she flits across the globe, on what sounds like a gorgeous and relaxing holiday! Aubree has been bringing us these Top Ten Tuesdays for some time now, and if you haven't checked them out then you really should as they are a fabulous resource for gluten, dairy & sugar free recipes!But enough of the chit chat and babbling about my Christmas.... check out my Top Ten Tuesday picks that are perfect for gluten free gifting this season!
Sorghum Almond Pumpkin Bars
+ because I had totally forgotten to check back to Aubree's site, Living Free, I didn't realise until this morning that she'd posted a recipe for delicious Vanilla Wafer Sugar Cookies! So, although I already have a Top Ten Tuesday, this is a little extra gluten, dairy and refined sugar free recipe for your Christmas Stocking Collection.
See, that's the best thing about stockings... sometimes you find the really good little treats at the bottom *winks*
