Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year

Okay I know I’m a bit behind and it was Chinese New Year last week but seeing all the celebrations in London yesterday reminded me of a dairy free find I wanted to share – better late than never heh! As Cam gets older his tastes are changing and he is keen to try new foods and Chinese … Continue reading

Stunning #DF Dessert – Apple Roses

These have just appeared on my Facebook page and I just had to share – I’m always looking for new and different ways of making foods more interesting for Cameron and think these would fit the bill perfectly; in fact I think all the family would love them – they are just so elegant! The … Continue reading

Dairy Free Milles Feuilles

Dairy Free Milles Feuilles

I always feel for Cam when its time for pudding, he often feels hard done by as a lot of desserts are laden with dairy and he has to stick with safe bets such as jelly or fruit and to be fair it all gets a bit boring after a while having the same old thing. We … Continue reading

Dairy Free Festive Nibbles

Dairy Free Festive Nibbles

I adapted these Marmite & Cheese Swirls from an Asda recipe – they are great for Cam to snack on at home and we take some along with us when we go visiting over Christmas so he has a safe dairy free festive nibble. They are so easy to make; just roll out some puff … Continue reading

Helen’s Brilliant Bread Mix

A while ago while we tried Cam on a gluten free diet for two weeks to see if reintroducing gluten had a negative effect on him – happy to report not but I did go out and buy several gluten free bread mixes to try as we did not particularly like any of the offerings … Continue reading

The recipe was easily … Continue reading

An Apple a Day

An Apple a Day

Most of us know the old adage ‘An apple a day keep the Doctor away’, well I think a slight variation on the theme might ring true in this household. I have actually been learning a lot about apples recently thanks in the main to the nutritionist we saw earlier in the year. She suggested … Continue reading

Finding allergy free recipes

Finding allergy free recipes

My favourite kind of books are cookbooks, I have an ever growing collection from over the years – many tried and tested recipes that I fall back upon and a few that I just use for special occasions. Several books were passed down to me from my grandmother and these are my particular favourite, especially when I … Continue reading

Lets go Bananas for Ice-Cream!!

Lets go Bananas for Ice-Cream!!

I know the weather doesn’t make you automatically think of ice-cream but after a little success in the kitchen (& freezer) yesterday I thought I’d share this with you. I can’t confess to creating this – in fact there are many recipes and variations online – I was slightly skeptical to be honest but hugely pleased with … Continue reading
