The Gluten Free Scallywag Christmas Magazine Vol 2. 2012

The Gluten Free Scallywag Christmas Magazine 2012

It's finally here, the second edition of my Christmas Magazine!

Choc full of Christmassy goodness just in time for your Christmas baking. With wedding plans, organising some funtimes for the festive season and client work it's been a good challenge to cook, shoot and compile this years magazine, but all things worthwhile are (relatively) hard aren't they? It's been a delicious journey from my fiance's crispy Roast Pork Rack with a thin apple gravy to a gluten free fruit mince tart, adults only rum balls and a new winter favourite of mine; beef & mushroom polenta pot pie. (I won't mention the Christmas Brownies.... oh... my.... word!)

I've always loved those jars make your own cookies (you know the ones with just the dry ingredients in?)  you can give at this time of year so that the recipients can make their own cookies. So, I've created a recipe for one, all you need to do is layer up the ingredients in a jar, print off the downloadable recipe card tags and tie with a pretty ribbon. There's a lactose free option for them too thanks to the versatility of coconut oil.

This year there are some wonderful contributors from Simmer & Boyle, Three Ducks Gourmet, Simply Gluten-Free ,Delicieux ,My Darling Lemon Thyme ,Kumquat, my gorgeous fiance and Be Gluten Free . I also have two GIVEAWAYS in the magazine one for US Residents, the other for local Melbourne-ites, so good luck with your entries!

A little feedback from last years magazine was that the recipes were hard to print, so, I've taken that on board and changed the layout of the recipes. About 90% of them are in an easily printable format, (all you need to do is download the free magazine from my shop and print the pages you want!) they remind me of the recipe cards my Mum and Nan have that were originally typed up on typewriters (one day I plan on owning my own one, simply so I can do my own recipe cards like those I remember) Plus you can read it on your iPhone and iPad! WOO HOO!

So, please grab a cuppa and I hope you enjoy flicking through this year's The Gluten Free Scallywag Christmas Magazine as much as I have enjoyed putting it together.
