Hello, I’m Antonia!
I am a free-from food blogger and baker born and bred in Yorkshire. I live in Southwark, London with my partner and our crazy, but adorable cat. I have been living in London for over six years, but so far no one has managed to take the Yorkshire out of me… yet!
I was recently diagnosed with Narcolepsy Type 1, a rare neurological disorder which causes my brain to sends me to sleep whenever supposed to be awake and to fall or collapse whenever I experience intense emotions, such as laughter, surprise or fear. I am also gluten intolerant and struggle with a number of dietary issues which I am slowly getting to the bottom of.
Narcolepsy is a very strange condition and be quite difficult to treat. I am still learning what works for me, but so far I have noticed that reducing sugar and carbohydrates helps me to feel a little less sleepy.
My blog was initially a gluten free blog, but I have opened it up to include other intolerances and dietary needs now that my own needs have changed. You’ll still find the same passion for good gluten free food, but you’ll also find more dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free and low carb recipes as well.
When I’m not baking, you’ll probably find me drinking tea, gardening, or playing endless games of fetch with my cat – I’m also interested in photography, painting, and occasionally chat about my love of musical theatre on the MusicalTalk podcast. I am also teaching myself to sew.
Here are some of the goodies I’ve baked, all of which are on the blog:
Any products mentioned or recommended on the blog are ones that I have tried and tested myself.
