Gluten-free honey glazed french-inspired tarts. Figs are my favourite fruit and coincidentally fig season also starts around the same time as my birthday. Inspired by Donna Hay and Rick Stein and Jamie Oliver's fig frangipane tarts I knew just had to try my hand at it as well. The golden crust is crumbly with a hint of sweetness. A combination of buckwheat flour and gluten-free flour were used with xanthan gum to bind the flours to form the dough. If you don't prefer a gluten-free crust just use any other...

I can still remember 7 year old me trying to convince my mom that soda floats weren't dessert whenever we went to the Spur or Wimpy diner. Most people don't have the slightest idea what a soda float is, and that's so sad. A soda float is the glorious marriage of a glass of cold soda (my favourite was creme soda) and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. When the ice cream starts to melt it makes this fizzy deliciousness. This can be enjoyed with a...

However, this version of the recipe I aimed to make dairy-free and refined sugar-free by replacing the milk with a dairy-free alternative, cane sugar with coconut blossom...

The taste of a summer celebration with a hint of floral and fresh strawberries. Are you a pancake or waffle type of person? Because waffles are basically pancakes with abs. Another reason I believe waffles trump pancakes is because they're the perfect combination of crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. Debate closed. So let's get waffling! Gluten-free and vegan waffles that are crispy? This used to a myth in the TGR kitchen until now, my friends. And with summer being in full swing what...
