The Great Gluten-Free Brunch

The Great Gluten-Free Brunch

There is no better reason to wake up on the weekend than to enjoy a morning full of meals. Yes, we're talking about brunch, arguably the best meal of the day because of its unlimited possibilities. However, if you have restrictions for either gluten or dairy, it may be tricky assembling a meal that suits you and pleases your company. But never fear! We have two recipes that will inspire and delight your senses without compromising your dietary needs.

Why do all greeting cards found in Room 2046 belong to the letterpress, screen-print or laser/dye cut variety? Because aside from witty concepts, gorgeous designs, and strong messaging, we love the feel and beauty of finished, crafted products. A letterpress card is no exception to other types of well-made, quality pieces that we carry in the shop. In addition to the precision and attention to detail involved in the process, a letterpress offers a tangible, physical impression to the printed image and lettering that digitally-printed materials fail to replicate.

One Pan, Two Plates

One Pan, Two Plates

Tried and tested during the long weekend, this flavourful recipe for Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce and Summer Squash Hash calls for accessible ingredients and requires less than 40 minutes of your time. A resourceful cookbook One Pan, Two Plates is a current favourite for the wide range of recipes and, as the title reveals, each dish serves two or three depending on the individual portion. It truly is the ideal book for single households (serve the second plate as a leftover for your next meal) or couples...or flatmates.
