Egg Free Royal Icing

This egg free icing is perfect for decorating my Easter biscuits.  At this consistency it can be used for cookie flooding which can be tricky with water icing yet is very allergy friendly.  If you add more icing sugar it will be stiff enough to pipe into shapes.

Delicious Dal

I’ve been making a delicious version of this vegetarian and allergy friendly dal for years.  This week I changed the recipe to keep it more friendly for children and cook in one pot. 

Gluten Free Dumplings

These gluten free dumplings are proper old fashioned, what your Granny would eat comfort food.  They go best with a stew, in my case it was an oxtail stew, very simply cooked with bags of flavour. 

Glorious Hot Chocolate

We’ve been snowed in this week and I’ve perfected a recipe for the most delicious hot chocolate. 

Dairy Free Buttercream

There are some aspects of being a parent I have dreamed about for a very long time.  I  loved baking so much but really had the wind knocked out of my sails once Felix was diagnosed with multiple allergies. 

Tasty Tofu Stir Fry – Child Friendly

I’ve posted this stir fry on Instagram several times and had more requests for the recipe from friends than any other dish.  It’s vegan, full of vegetables and relatively quick to cook.  The preparation isn’t too hideous but the flavour is well worth it.

Quinoa Salad – AKA The Fridge Raid

Tonight the kids were a pain in the bum to get to bed.  Felix (age 6) was on a post sports club high and Teddy (age 2) was so excited by having his brother in the bath turned giddy, splashy and then ran around naked.  My kids do not find baths a relaxing wind down…

Burns Night Supper – Veggie Version

I’m sticking my neck out here giving you a recipe for Burns night when a) I’m not Scottish and b) I’ve fashioned a haggis into a pie.  I’m hoping my Scottish friends (of birth and blood) approve of this recipe.  Well, I say recipe, it’s more of an idea!
