A hiatus, a shift of focus… and finally a diagnosis!

Hello again!

Well, My Sleepy Kitchen has been long overdue for a post! After a 2.5 year hiatus, it finally feels like the right time to start blogging again. I’ve been thinking about it for some time now, and have had a lot of encouragement to pick the blog up again, but the past couple years have been a roller coaster to say the least, and unfortunately blogging didn’t fit into the picture.

2-in1 Recipe: Massaman Curry & Paste

Massaman Curry Paste

I love Thai food – however, saying that, I always get the same dish when I eat out: Massaman Curry. This is one of my all-time favourite curries, but I think a lot of people bypass it for a trusty Pad Thai or Green Thai Curry instead. If you’ve never tried Massaman Curry, now’s your chance!

Gluten Free Rosemary Parmesan Crackers

Gluten Free Rosemary Parmesan Crackers

my sleepy kitchen:

I wanted to share this recipe for some great looking gluten free crackers made with brown rice and quinoa; I have a cracker recipe that I love, which is pretty similar to these, but uses ground nuts as the base instead. This version would probably be a bit cheaper to make, but still has protein and good fats in there to help keep you feeling full and energized!

Mmmm, crackers. Who doesn’t like crackers? They’re comfort food. They’re convenience food. But healthy food? Usually not. Making crackers is something that has been on my list for ages, and now that I’ve made these I’m wondering why I waited so long. I guess it seemed a bit daunting, but it totally isn’t.

These crackers have something for practically everyone. They’re gluten free, which is a big deal for a lot of folks out there. I’m super lucky, I don’t have trouble digesting really anything, but so many people I know, including some of my closest friends, have some degree of gluten intolerance. I’m trying to better understand gluten intolerance and subsequently, gluten free baking, so when I saw the recipe for these crackers I jumped at the chance to try them out.

These crackers are also vegan, and are also made entirely of whole foods. Don’t let that put…
