This is my take on a traditional Mexican cake made from chick peas. I love baking with basic pantry items as I often have them on hand and they are usually inexpensive. This cake uses only 5 ingredients and is very quick to put together. It is delicious served warm, but will develop a lovely dense texture if left to cool completely. This recipe uses a food processor, but a stick blender will also work. […]

In our household we eat a hot cooked breakfast each day of the week. It helps that we have two children who wake well before the sun comes up, as this gives us a bit of time to prepare our meals before school and work. But these breakfast beans really are quick to make and you can speed up the process by getting things ready the night before, or you can make them in the weekend when you […]

It has been a busy and stressful week. So I made a cake. Cakes are such a satisfying thing to make (unless we are talking about the first one of these cakes I made during the experimental stage. That one was edible, but not so satisfying). Fortunately the second cake turned out beautifully. It has a light texture for a grain free cake and is packed full of wholesome ingredients. The lemon cream cheese icing tops […]

With more and more research showing a significant link between sugar consumption and disease (such as heart disease and diabetes, to name only a few), I am encouraged to find new ways of creating healthy treats that are free from refined sugars and low in natural sweeteners. I often use small amounts of maple syrup or honey in place of sugar. Fruit can also add sweetness, while helping to maintain moisture in the finished product. This cake […]

I have three words for this pizza base: nom nom nom (it’s valid, it’s in the Urban Dictionary). This is by far my favourite gluten-free base. The dough makes as close to a classic thin-crust pizza base as I am ever going to get. Because of a strong intolerance to gluten, my two kids and I have to stick to a gluten-free base. But most GF bases out there are too dry and brittle or to much like […]

Hello! Welcome to The Rusty Skillet. This blog is intended to become a collection of my own recipes, as well as many of my favourite recipes that I have gathered and personalised over the past decade. With a keen interest in nutrition and gut health I often have people asking about the foods and meals my family and I eat on a daily basis. I will occasionally write about different ingredients and why I prefer a specific one over […]
