Giveaway Winners & an Announcement!

Congratulations to:

Margaret Jasinska - This Christmas I'm looking forward to making a pavlova topped with lots of cream, nectarines, blueberries and passionfruit. So nice because it's already gluten free and lovely and cool on a hot summer day.

Ellie Rose -  This year i am looking forward to baking mince pie bomb Alaska's: a gluten free mince pie topped with homemade coconut milk ice cream and baked in a meringue shell, literally heaven on a plate!

Your numbers were pulled out of the magical and you have each won a copy of the 'Irresistible for the Irritable' Cookbook by Sue Shepherd! You should have received an email from me earlier today, if you haven't please check your junk mail and email me at jas [@] if it hasn't come through.

Now, onto my announcement - serious happy dances happening here people!

Last week my man surprised me with a lovely bottle of champagne to celebrate, because, you see, my kitchen, recipes and business plan has been approved by my local council to be able to bake my gluten free goods for you to gobble up. Yes - that's right everyone!

The Gluten Free Scallywag Bakery  is now open for business! 

It's taken me a while (as those select friends that knew about my plans would know!) but it's here and I can't wait to be able to help those of you in Perth, Western Australia, with your gluten free celebrations! You'll see a new page at the top of this site which has information about the Gluten Free Scallywag Bakery; what's available - gluten free cakes, cookies and slices are on the menu, plus important information about my kitchen and where these gluten free goodies are available!!

So, if you have a friend that's gluten free and you need some gluten free cupcakes or cookies for them or you are gluten free and simply aren't in the mood to bake that next morning tea for work then, please, check out The Gluten Free Scallywag Bakery and contact me about an order of scrumptious gluten free cakes, brownies or cookies!

After all this excitement (and more than a few happy dances and a bottle of bubbly) I haven't had a chance to complete my usual recipe post for you, so I'll leave you with one of my favourite gluten free salads from this time last year - Gluten & Lactose Free Creamy Mustard Chicken Salad.
