Growing Up Green

Every now and then I come across some really wonderful blogs full of useful information and ideas for leading a more environmentally friendly way of life. My latest favourite is the blog 'Growing Up Green' which is a 'one-stop shopping blog that features cool, modern, eco products for kids'. It is a wonderful blog to visit if you are looking for some original ideas in eco living to kids.

Delicious Gluten Free Cake

I made the most delicious gluten free cake for my partner's birthday the other day.
Ususally I am a throw-it-all-in-and-see-what-happens kind of cook, which means a lot of my recipes turn out rock hard or too crumbly or just a bit tasteless, however, when it comes to my family's birthday cakes I alway make myself follow the recipe.
I found this delicious recipe for a gluten free orange cake made on almond meal. It was moist and very tasty and very very simple to make. I would recommend using organic oranges as you use the entire orange.

2 navel oranges
5 eggs
250g almond meal
250g raw sugar
1 tsp baking powder

Boil the oranges in enough water that they are submerged for 1 hour.
After that, blend them up into a puree skins and all.
In another bowl blend sugar and eggs until they start to thicken up a bit, the add cooled orange puree. After that mix in the almond meal and the sugar and baking powder.

Put it all in a baking pan and bake for 1 hour on about 180 degrees.

It looked like it wasn't cooked in the centre when I took it out but after leaving it to stand in the tin for half an hour or so it was fine.

I sprinkled a bit of icing sugar over the top just to make it look a bit pretty.

mmmmm...I think I'll have to make another one!

Lovely Keepsakes

I just stumbled upon a lovely little webiste called Kids With Crayons.
They make your childs little drawings into special momentos that last, and they look gorgeous as well. You can have your childs artwork made into a magnet, badge, framed picture and lots of other lovely ideas.
A perfect pressie for Grandparents or just something sweet for yourself.
