Yeasted baked buttermilk doughnuts. Be still my heart. These will be undergoing a gluten-free makeover soon!

Adding these places to my travel destinations list, oh and spotting the place my Mama is from (hi, Aarhus!)

Chocolate. Bourbon. Cream. Pie. Boom.

Shortbread Strawberry Crumble. I can’t wait until the season starts, I’m already stocking up on ice cream!

I finally bought ‘All the Light We Cannot See‘ after months of hearing great reviews. I know what I’m doing next weekend!

A sad but important story. It’s okay to not be okay and it’s okay to ask for help.

These are sensible enough for walking, but shiny enough to let you know it’s PARTY TIME!

I need more polka dots in my life. Obvi.

I’ve told you before: I’m scared of going to prison (for what? Crimes of the crumb?) but fascinating by ‘stories from the inside‘.

Women in science! I can’t wait to read this new book highlighting 52 amazing lady scientists – rock those lab coats my brainy sisters!

10 Gluten Free Sweet Ideas for Father’s Day

Recent weekends with my Dad have included both of us romping with the dog Molly, putting our heads together to design a bar cabinet for the new house, the whole family shovelling dirt to help with my parent’s backyard renovation, and watching Monster Trucks or Austrian detective shows. You could say we are an eclectic pair. (Rocking it old school in the photos below – I would still wear that dress actually…)

Dad and I

Growing up, my Dad was the perfect father for two daughters. He taught us how to make shortbread and how to hold a hammer. He (and my Mum) was a great example of feminism: he taught my sister and I that there is nothing you can’t do as a woman, or as a man. He told bedtime stories (my favourite was Stuart Little); sang us songs that he made up on the spot (I still think of them when I can’t sleep); and fixed everything from broken jewellery to broken hearts. My Dad is my friend as well as my father, and I only hope I can live up to the example of being a great person with big ideas, big love, and a big heart that he has set me. Love you Dada, and Happy Father’s Day.

Another thing my Dad and I have in common is a huge sweet tooth. Put a bag of freckle chocolates in front of us and the only thing that will stop us is the bottom of the bag!

So when it comes to treating Dad for Father’s Day I know that sweet baked goods are the way to go. I’m working on something new for this weekend, but here are ten of my favourite gluten free ideas to help you treat your Dad to something this weekend.

When my Dad says something is ‘terrible’ it means he loves it. These Oatmeal Caramel Cookies earned that label and the batch disappeared very quickly.

Want to give your Dad something he can enjoy for breakfast the whole week long? Try my fruit studded Breakfast Bread. Perfect with a man-size cup of tea in his new ‘Best Dad’ mug.

Breakfast Bread | Gluten Free | Thoroughly Nourished Life

You might not be able to send Dad away on a tropical vacation, but you can give him all the flavours of a beachy cocktail in Banana and Coconut Doughnut form, which makes it even better in my opinion.

Banana and Coconut Baked Doughnuts | Gluten Free | Thoroughly Nourished Life

My Dad loves coconut (can’t you tell) – definitely where my sister and I get it from, and we used to buy him coconut ice every Father’s Day. No need to buy it anymore though with this super special Sprinkled Coconut Ice (Dad tested and approved).

Sprinkle Coconut Ice | Thoroughly Nourished Life | Gluten Free

My Dad and I can easily inhale a bag of Peanut m&ms while watching car racing, and these Chocolate Peanut Cookies are the spirit of Peanut m&ms in a cookie.

Chocolate Peanut Cookies | Gluten Free | Thoroughly Nourished Life

Now, take that Peanut m&m and turn it inside out. Add a little extra crunch and now you’ve got these Peanut Butter and Millet Cookies. I ate a whole batch on my own. You need to remember to share with your Dad this weekend!

Peanut Butter and Millet Chocolate Chip Cookies | Gluten Free | Thoroughly Nourished Life

Are you having an extra special morning tea for Dad? These Beetroot Chocolate Cupcakes with Golden Syrup Buttercream are a perfect treat for the whole family and there are plenty to share!

Dad and I love to share a pot of coffee sometimes when I am home on the weekends. These Espresso Hazelnut Flourless Chocolate Cookies are perfect for the coffee and chocolate loving Dad and are so easy to make!

Speaking of coffee, these Coffee-Vanilla Sandwich Cookies are an extra special treat if you have a little more time. Bonus points if you find an awesome biscuit tin to present them in!

And for the grand finale, this is definitely what you should bring to the big family party. Impress them with your skills (but keep it a secret that this is super easy), and treat Dad to the perfect springtime flavour combination with my Citrus Poppyseed Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.

I hope I’ve given you a little gluten free sweet treat inspiration for treating your Dad this Father’s Day weekend!

Tell me dear reader, what are some of your favourite memories of your Dad? Anyone else have a special ‘Footloose’ dance or is that just us?

Thoroughly Nourished Finds: Rainy Days Edition

I had an amazing zucchini and chocolate cake to share with you today. Had. Until I went to turn it out of the pan and my perfect cake became a pile of crumbs, chocolate chips, and devastation. So, I took this as a sign from the universe that I needed to step away from the cake (and the chocolate) for a little while and share something a little different with you all. Perhaps, what I have been wrapped up with on the internet for the past few weeks. Presenting Thoroughly Nourished Finds: Rainy Days Edition. After all, the weather is getting warmer and stormier here, and our rainy days of spring are just starting.

Indulgent Rainy Day Eats:

Let’s start the list with a little chocolate, because on a rainy weekend day I want to be wrapped up on the couch with a book and something indulgent to drink. This Chocolate Iced Coffee from Kare at Kitchen Treaty fits the bill perfectly.

Rainy days are perfect for Thai food in my mind. This Crunchy Cashew Thai Quinoa Salad from Tasty Kitchen Blog looks perfect, and oh that sauce….

Do you remember the Cadbury Mint Patties that came in the gold foil? I do, fondly. These Irish Mint Patties from Clean Eating are like the (almost) guilt free version – and you can make them at home!

Searching for another sweet treat? My new blog friend Lynn at Fresh April Flours shared a recipe for Cinnamon Crunch Scones last week. Now, scones are my perfect rainy day food because they remind me of my Mum. Anyone for high tea?

I know this vegan crumble is supposed to be dessert, but with all those berries, surely it could pass for breakfast too? Can’t wait to make this Raw Berry and Pear Crumble with Vanilla Cashew Cream.

Where I’m Dreaming Of:

If you could choose anywhere to spend a rainy weekend, where would you go? I would choose a lighthouse, right on the edge of a cliff, with the storm howling around me and a fireplace keeping me toasty warm I would be in my own little version of heaven. These lighthouse hotels make that a possibility….

Chris and I both have Scotland on our ‘Must Travel To’ Lists and when we get there The Kelpies sculpture near Falkirk in Scotland are on my list of ‘Must See Architecture’.

Might Be Raining, But I’m Still Training

I have decided to take a break from training for races for a little while. I am still enjoying running, and getting my long runs above 6 miles again, but I just want to be able to enjoy and explore some different ways of moving at the moment. Since my surgery earlier this year I have found it really hard to get my abs firmed up again. I am thinking of trying out reformer-based Pilates to strengthen my extremely weak core. Any thoughts?

I’ve been enjoying some at-home workouts during the week to increase my strength without having to fight the crowds in the weights area at the gym. This Cardio Pilates workout from PopSugar Fitness was an amazing follow up to my run on Saturday. I was starving by the time I got to the dinner party I was going to as well – bonus!

These printed tights from Under Armour are calling my name! Perfect for running and so pretty! Saving up my pocket money for these.

Rainy Retail Therapy

These coral suede loafers are completely impractical for the rain, and I would probably end up carrying them more than wearing them to jump through puddles, but they’re so pretty. Perfect for spring farmer’s market mornings.

A little book retail therapy is always welcome on a rainy day, and these are the latest reads to catch my eye (might need to give our bank account a workout this weekend…): Dear Daughter: A Novel by Elizabeth Little; The Miniaturist: A Novel by Jessie Burton; The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan; and Lisette’s List by Susan Vreeland. Also, I have a Books Worth Reading board on Pinterest and I’m on Good Reads as well if you want to see what I’m reading at the moment!

Okay, dear reader, what have you found around this big ole web recently? Anyone tried out reformer Pilates before? Help!

Thoroughly Nourished Finds – A Quick List

Let’s have a list this week! I’m in the mood for a streamlined download of the interesting and awesome things I have found around the web. So, here’s a quick edition of Thoroughly Nourished Finds:

The poster above (which is a free download) will be going somewhere in our new house for sure.

I love taking photos (anyone who follows my Instagram, I apologise for the stream of consciousness frequency) and this chipboard album from the genius ladies at A Beautiful Mess would be a perfect way to display some of my favourites.

Because I love tacos and Chris loves tacos, and, and just look at the cheese stretch in motion.

I have loved Pimms since a birthday high tea many years ago and now Joy has brought a perfect Pimms cocktail into my life. Thank you Ms. The Baker.

These photos of Chocolate Macarons with Blackberry Filling just destroyed me. Prediction: they are in my very near future.

I am in a non-fiction mood at the moment and after hearing many interviews with author Jung Chang, this biography of the powerful Empress Dowager Cixi is on my reading list.

A lazy Sunday morning calls for a huge stack of these Hazelnut Pancakes with Chocolate Coconut Cream.

And then I would go for a run and do this awesome leg work out that give Carrie Underwood her enviable pins, because it’s all about balance.

Finally, a new place to fantasise about visiting – The Magic Mountain Hotel in Chile – like something from a fairy tale, and I’ve already got my prince charming!

P.S. It’s my birthday this weekend, and I think a gluten free version of this cake is going to feature on my dinner table for the occasion!

Your turn readers!  The quick list of what’s been fascinating you!

Thoroughly Nourished Finds – A Rather Random Assortment

The rain is softly falling outside my window today, and all I wanted to do this morning was roll over and snuggle under the covers all day. Alas, the office was calling, but with a big mug of tea in my hand and happy co-workers around me it doesn’t seem so bad.

In the moments between the spreadsheet lines I am allowing my mind to wander back to cosier things and here I am going to share them with you in the latest edition of Thoroughly Nourished Finds – A Rather Random Assortment.

Reads

Currently I am still wading through Sheri Fink’s Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital (it’s dense and a little heartbreaking) and I have just started Kate Christensen’s Blue Plate Special: An Autobiography of my Appetites for my master’s dissertation.

I was intrigued when I saw this article about highly sensitive people, and it seems that I would fit into their category perfectly. I guess that’s why I cry over Huggies commercials…

Eats

I was lying in bed reading the latest issue of Food Network Magazine the other night and Chris seemed awfully interested in its contents and bookmarked a few that he wouldn’t mind seeing on his dinner plate soon – it was the bacon special people. Even for a vegetarian like me there were some recipes that I’d love to try for my omnivorous loved ones. Think: Bacon Candy, The Italian Elvis sandwich, or Bacon Burger Dogs.

One of my favourite days is quickly approaching – Saint Patrick’s Day (which also happens to be one of my friend’s birthdays – Hi Therese!). I think that this Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread might be a nice treat to share with my workmates, or perhaps a St. Patrick’s Day Green Velvet Cake?

Loves

A pink winter coat. Don’t ask why. I don’t even usually wear pink, but something about this soft peony-hued coat that just makes me want to stroll through the city on a winter’s day to visit the museum and sip a cappuccino while the world goes by.

My friend Cait has started a new business! She has merged her artistic talents and her love of running and inspiring other runners to create Ezzere Running Shirts. Each one contains a personal message that aims to inspire runners to create goals and go for them. I wear Cait’s shirts whenever I race because just knowing the love and creative spirit that goes into each one spurs me onto give my all to the run. You can visit Cait’s new website here, or check her out on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Listens

I love listening to podcasts while I work or when I’m out running. I’m working out my brain and my body at the same time.

At the moment I am binge listening to BBC Woman’s Hour (very appropriate with the approaching International Women’s Day) – the stories of women who have faced extraordinary and ordinary problems today and in the past, and the discussion of issues that impact on women in contemporary society keep me interested while I’m tapping away at my keyboard being a working woman in the world.

 The New Yorker: Out Loud is filled with interesting stories and debates from the pages of the magazine. I must admit, I feel a little fancy listening to The New Yorker, but I really enjoy hearing from the people behind the stories in the magazine.

Have your found anything exciting that you would like to share dear readers? 

Coming up this week – An ice cream recipe for Saint Patrick’s Day and a risotto that makes a perfect midweek meal.

Thoroughly Nourished Finds: February Edition

Thursday has long been my favourite day of the week. When I was little, Thursday was the day my primary school class would trek up to the library and listen to a story and then pick out our books for the week, which meant I had the whole weekend to read them. As a teenager Thursdays went through a difficult period (as did I) because I worked every Thursday night for about seven years. Then, I got a grown up job and realised that I never had to go to the shops on a Thursday night again if I didn’t want to! And so Thursdays regained their favourite day status. Tonight I will be baking for a local café and for a work celebration and while I do so, why don’t you pull up a chair and browse the Thoroughly Nourished Finds February Edition.

Reads:

Because I just can’t leave my ‘To Read’ list alone until it has whittled down a little, I was super excited for more recommendations when I saw that The Stella Prize Long List had come out. I am especially excited to read: Boy, Lost by Kristina Olsson; Madeleine: A Life of Madeleine St John by Helen Trinca; The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka by Clare Wright; and All the Birds, Singing by Evie Wyld. Have you read any of these?

Notes from a Blue Bike by Tsh Oxenreider is on my birthday wish list (next month!). I love Tsh’s podcast and this book sounds like it has a lot of Nourished Life lessons for me to learn.

Eats:

Still hot here in Australia (Think 30C at 8pm last night) and this Coffee Ice Cream looks like a perfect weekend pick-me-up and this Roasted Apricot and Honey Ice Cream takes advantage of our summer bounty in delicious perfection.

I know these cups are supposed to be for espresso, but I think they’d be just darling for single scoop servings of ice cream.

I made a new blog friend and her recipes and photography are amazing. I am particularly smitten with this Olive and Rosemary Quick Bread; Leek, Crème Fraiche and Goat Cheese Tart; and can we pause for a moment in the wonder that is this Dark Chocolate Mousse with French Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Caramel Puffed Rice – uh huh.

Moves:

In celebration of the fact that I am allowed to work out properly again (yay!) I have been trawling through some new workouts that I would like to try. The road back will be slow and steady but I am so happy that I can pick up my weights again (also, I am going to need to work out to balance out the ice cream, mousse, and tarts that will be coming out of the kitchen soon).

I love workouts that use just one tool and this medicine ball workout from Lorna Jane caught my eye looks tough but quick and awesome.

Moving is my Medicine ball

I love me a home workout, especially in the colder winter mornings, and especially when the cost of a monthly pass is equal to a new handbag (the good type), so with my frugalness in mind I buy DVDs instead. I took an adult’s ballet class for a while and found it to be complimentary to my running so theses X-tend Barre and Cardio Barre DVDs will be finding their way into my DVD player soon.

Adventures:

While watching the Sochi Winter Olympics I have become completely enchanted by the idea of a holiday in the snow. Wouldn’t this Mirrorcube at the Treehotel in the Boreal Forest, Sweden be an amazing place to stay?

A little closer to home, I can’t help but get swept away by QAGOMA’s Fairytales and Fables exhibition. Mum, Jess, and I have a lady date coming up soon to view one of the films being played as part of the exhibition.

Thinks:

Becoming Minimalist has become one of my favourite blogs to read of late. This article on decluttering  your schedule so that you can live your desired life is an important message for someone like me who tries to do it all. I need to step back and simplify. (I think this is something that Chris tells me all the time…).

The Kauffman family’s story of helping their young transgender son on his journey to live in the world as a male was heart-warming, tear jerking, and a lesson in how to really love someone. Listen here.

Well, plenty to keep me reading, eating, moving, adventuring and thinking this month. Any Thoroughly Nourished Finds that you would like to share? Anyone stayed in a treehouse hotel? 

Thoroughly Nourished Finds: It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas Edition

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…yes, really it is! I know some of you right now are thinking ‘Amy, please don’t talk about Christmas yet, it’s only November 28th – wait it’s November 28th!’

Well, sorry, I’m not sorry. I am the child of two of the most Christmas-loving people on the planet. By this Sunday afternoon our house will be smothered in Christmas decorations. My Dad has been working super hard all year on his Christmas display and I can’t wait to see it all finally in place. Mum has amassed the most gorgeously curated collection of Christmas ornaments, plates, garlands and wall hangings over the years and not a cranny of the house will be without at least a paper snowflake. I can’t wait to sit back with a mug of tea, perhaps a few biscuits (of an appropriately Christmassy shape) and watch the lights twinkle on the tree while listening to Ann and Kenny croon.

With all the Christmas love in my heart it’s no wonder that in my recent wanderings around the web I have spotted some holiday appropriate Nourished Finds.

Nourished Eats

At the moment I want to eat all the vegetables and all the fruits. I also want to eat all the sweet stuff that I can visualise coming out of my kitchen in the next month. Therefore I am trying to stick closely to an 80:20 balance; 80% good yummy vegetarian whole foods and 20% scrumptious treats. Until we get to Christmas Eve, but that’s a different story.

So some clean eats to fuel my runs: let’s talk about the Green Powerhouse Pesto Plate from the ever-glowing Angela at Oh She Glows; or maybe some Summer Day Soup (even though it’s hot outside I still feel like soup); and I can imagine these protein-packed Omelette Wraps would make a delicious light dinner.

And these 80% things mean I can launch into Christmas appropriate 20% things like these festively bright Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies, Gingerbread Waffles, or some Truffled Popcorn while watching some of my favourite Christmas movies.

Nourishing Movement

Summer is here, and that means many things including sleeveless and strapless items on high rotation in my wardrobe. While I have maintained my running fitness through winter, and I attempted to keep up strength training, I definitely need some help in the arm department. And this kettlebell routine looks good for days when I want a workout but have limited time. Or perhaps a Christmas-themed workout would be more appropriate? I like this one from Spark People – I would definitely want some gingerbread waffles as a reward after those tinsel twists!

Nourished Mind

In between parties and family celebrations the Christmas season is a great time for ‘doing nothing’. I have trouble ‘doing nothing’ and Chris is probably the best person at helping me to just lie down, relax, and think about nothing for a while. This article from Psychology Today is an important reminder to just relax and allow our minds to rest from the constant barrage of information that we all face in contemporary society.

I wasn’t sure where to put this but I have to share this man’s amazing pancake art!  I would love an Aladdin shaped pancake to start my day.

After my date with Dad a few weekend’s ago, I wish we could go to this presentation at the Getty Center about Everyday Modernism in the California Landscape, but I think a 13-hour international flight might be a little too far…

Santa If You’re Listening…

I know it’s a little greedy to ask for an apartment in Paris where I can watch the world go by and eat my body weight in cheese, so I’m just going to put this print on my list instead (we can get to that apartment next year).

I love handwriting letters to people near and far, so perhaps a pretty little stationery set Santa? Then I could thank you in writing.

Or, you could get me a duck, well not technically me, but Oxfam will buy a duck for a family in Bangladesh who can use the money raised from selling its eggs to send their children to school. So Santa – put a smile under the tree for me instead of a gift this year.

So friends, what have you found lately? Any early Christmas plans/recipes you want to share? What shape would your ultimate pancake art pancake be? Mine is most definitely going to be a pug face.
