Gluten Free Maamoul, Quirky Cooking

Gluten-Free Maamoul – Lebanese Easter Pastries

by Fouad Kassab This year I took it upon myself to make the impossible possible. The challenge was, could I create a gluten-free maamoul - Lebanese Easter Shortbreads - that's as good as the real deal? Inspired by my macadamia and currant shortbreads which I included in our cookbook, Life-Changing Food, I have created this recipe for gluten-free/grain-free maamoul. The result, I promise you, is as good if not better than the originals. And if you don’t believe me, bake a batch and see for yourself. The only thing is, do you have the self-control to wait until after Easter to dig in?

I now have cheesecake back in my life, and I'm so happy that I just had to share this recipe with you all - a healthy revamp of the old Aussie favourite, Raspberry Jelly Cheesecake Slice. :) Can't have dairy? Don't worry, there's a dairy-free, vegan version of the recipe as well!! WOO HOO!!

Fat Bomb Jellies, Quirky Cooking

Fat Bomb Jellies

Only a few years ago, it seemed like the entire world was certain that fat was going to kill us. From the perspective of a population that was suffering from extreme weight issues, soaring cholesterol levels and an epidemic of heart disease, cutting out fat seemed to be the logical thing to do. If ever there was a usual suspect, fat had to be it: it was energy dense (all those calories in a single tablespoon!), full of cholesterol (the stuff we see in clogged arteries), and it tasted really good (tasty things have to be bad for you)!
