    Taco Salad Bowl – With Edible Bowl!

    It’s summer which can only mean one thing…. Salad season! I would honestly eat salad and rice every day when it’s hot. A Taco Salad Bowl is probably my favourite way of having salad though and my 4 year old is now requesting it every week! Only issue is, he doesn’t eat salad. We do manage to get him to eat some bits though. I think the main fascination with the Taco Salad Bowl is the fact you can eat the bowl!! It is definitely the best part. Though if you destroy it too early, the salad spills everywhere. Mr and I have learnt to leave it whole until you’re…

    Gluten Free, Vegan Thumbprint Biscuits With Lemon Curd

    Another week, another recipe! I wouldn’t usually do 2 similar posts one week after the other but I HAD to share this recipe with you guys. I have already given it out to one of my Insta friends who also made these gorgeous gluten free, vegan thumbprint biscuits and given me feedback on how good they are. I always worry about posting recipes just in case they’re not as good as I think they are. I’ve used recipes from books before and been really disappointed at how bland the flavour was and I think that’s what triggers my worries. But anyway’s…. My lovely work colleague brought in a jar of…

    Gluten Free IKEA Style Meatballs With Creamy Sauce

    I think I only got to have IKEA’s famous Swedish Meatballs once before I realised I was gluten intolerant so I don’t really have much to compare them to. I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for ages though and typically, during this lock down, IKEA actually released the recipe for their infamous meatballs! They’re not gluten free though so I’ve still played around and adapted the recipe to suit me. So here it is, my Gluten Free IKEA Style Meatballs recipe! Complete with the creamy gravy sauce. You can make this recipe dairy free too by using alternative yoghurt and butter. It can literally be made to suit any…

    Mexican Chilli Bean Soup

    I’ve recently tried a supermarket’s own tinned Mexican Chilli Bean Soup and my first thought was “I can make this better”. Actually, I’ve tried a couple from different supermarkets. Some containing chicken too. They were OK but I was more shocked when I read the ingredients on the tins. The amount of salt is shocking and one even contained hydrogenated fats….. Why?! Why does soup contain man made fat! There’s just no need for it. And a good soup shouldn’t need ridiculous amounts of salt either. I prefer a thicker soup to a watery, stock based one so my recipe for Mexican Bean Soup is done in two parts. The…

    Fakeaway Salt And Pepper Chicken

    This Fakeaway Salt and Pepper Chicken is one of my absolute favourites. Being Gluten Free is quite easy these days. The choice of bread and cakes in shops is unbelievable and everything tastes nice. Restaurants offer whole Free From Menus now. Eating out is far easier now than it was a few years ago. Every body seems to be realising that people with allergies and intolerances want to eat good food too! One problem I do still come across is takeaways. I can manage to get a chicken Kebab minus the pitta from my local Kebab shop but that’s about it. I haven’t risked an Indian and Chinese is out…

    Rosemary And Garlic Baked Fries

    Making crispy oven baked fries is like winning gold at the Olympics in the slimming community. They do take practice and everyone has their own way. These Rosemary and Garlic Baked Fries are one of my favourite ways of doing them. Air Fryers have become one of the most popular kitchen gadgets but I just don’t have the storage space for one. And quite frankly, I don’t think I could get one big enough to do chips for my whole family! We like a big portion of chips. I have moved over to using oven chips lately, just for convenience but I do still love a good baked chip. I…

    Baked Sweet Potato Onion Bhajis

    We love a curry in our house and these Baked Sweet Potato Onion Bhajis are the perfect side dish! My family love my Easy Chicken Curry which is packed full of healthy veggies. We do tend to turn curry night into a feast though! Even me being gluten free doesn’t stop us having all of the side dishes. These Baked Sweet Potato Onion Bhajis are absolutely delicious. Because they’re baked it makes them healthier than your standard Bhajis. And you can get extra vegetables into the kids without them realising! Ingredients (Makes 6-8+ depending on the size) 1 Medium Sized Sweet Potato 2 Onions 1 Tsp Curry Powder 1 Tsp…

    Easy Peasy Spaghetti Bolognese

    Spaghetti Bolognese is a family classic and everyone has their own way of doing it. I love mine filled with veg and because it’s chopped up quite small even the toddler eats it without much fuss. Easy Peasy Spaghetti Bolognese really is just that though. Once upon a time my Bolognese would have been made with sauce from a jar. This way is just as easy though and far healthier! There’s no added salt and there’s so much veg in it. I have my Easy Peasy Spaghetti Bolognese with gluten free pasta and the Bolognese is naturally gluten free. I also enjoy having it with courgetti (spiralised courgette) that’s been…

    Homemade Salsa

    We love Mexican food in our house and one thing we always have to have is salsa. The shop bought stuff is nice but it’s nothing compared to a proper homemade salsa! This tastes unbelievably fresh and adds a really nice twist to tacos or fajitas. The first time I made this my daughter said she didn’t want to try it until the sauce was there. I think someone was a little too used to shop bought! She tried it though and that was it, she was hooked. I barely ever buy salsa now, this is cheaper and far tastier.

    Slow Cooker Herby Chicken

    Slow Cooker Herby Chicken was a complete experiment that turned out to be one of those much loved recipes! I love my slow cooker and not just during the winter. I decided to have a look through my recipe books to create some new recipes to do in it. This is quite simple but really tasty and makes life so much easier on the days I have work. All I need to do is cook some pasta and serve it up. You could have it with anything though as it’s almost a casserole type dish.
