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...

The easter recipes you didn't know you needed until today. This year it definitely feels like easter weekend sneaked up on me with all the madness going on in the world with COVID-19.

"There is something profoundly satisfying about sharing a meal. Eating together, breaking bread together, is one of the oldest and most fundamentally unifying of human experiences." - Barbara Coloroso I've...

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...

Gluten-free, grain-free and easily made plant-based pizza base made with sweet potato. Friends. This might as well be THE BEST alternative pizza base I've ever tried. Am I bias? Totally. But I've also had some of the best feedback from the community over on Instagram on this recipe (originally heart-shaped pizza). While we're on the honesty train I might as well be entirely transparent and let you know that this is probably the recipe I've remade the most for dinner. Crispy, wholesome and filling pizza base made with roasted...

The very first time I had a bagel was at a random Bed & Breakfast in between Las Vegas and San Francisco where we stopped at for an average bed and average American Breakfast. Exactly like it should be on an American road trip, I guess. Even though it was back in 2015 and I...
