BBC Food Blog - Dan's Bread Recipe

There's a great food blog post on Gluten free living and baking by Dan Lepard on the BBC site .  The bread recipe using flax and psillium looks inspired, so will definitely be giving that a try.  Also, there are some good links at the bottom of that page to other peoples recipes and blogs.

Check it out on the BBC Blog site.

The best sweet and sour sauce

Easy, delicious sweet and sour sauce recipe below.  Cook any meat first, then add chunky veg (inc onions) and chopped pineapple and cook until kind of aldente.  Then add the sauce and heat through until it thickens (2-5 mins).

5 tbsps GF soy sauce
8 tbsps (1/4 cup) rice vinegar
8 tbsps (1/4 cup) water
20 tbsps (1/2 cup) sugar (I know! but it is a treat recipe - makes you think about all the calories in takeaways huh!?)
3 tbsps potato starch (magic sauce thickener!  Buy it in chinese supermarkets)
