    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…

    Sausage Casserole – Oven And Slow Cooker Method

    Sometimes all we want for dinner is something warm and comforting. One of my favourite things before going gluten free was Schwartz Sausage Casserole. Unfortunately the main ingredient in their packet mix is wheat. Because of this, I decided to recreate it in a way I could actually eat. Of course, to make it gluten free, you need to make sure the sausages are safe. I highly recommend Aldi for their range of sausages that are all certified gluten free. And if you are a dieter then they also have a great range for you too! They do low fat pork chipolatas and really tasty chicken ones too! By the…

    Cheats Mac and Cheese – Chef Parmalat Cooking Cream Review

    I have created this Cheats Mac and Cheese recipe after being asked to review Chef Parmalat UHT cooking cream. I was gifted the product and all opinions are my own and not that of the company. Italian food is mt favourite and even more so when it’s been tinkered with by the Americans! There’s just something comforting about a bowl full of creamy carbs. When Ciao Gusto asked me to come up with a recipe using one of their many products I couldn’t say no! I had a look at the multitude of different products available and I knew exactly what I was going to make… Cheats Mac and Cheese!…

    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…

    London Adventures – The Allergy and Free From Show 2019

    The Allergy and Free From Show; Now my third favourite foodie day of the year! My first being Christmas and second is Bonfire Night (a family tradition). I found out about the Allergy and Free From Show shortly after changing my diet last year. My niece has Coeliac Disease so it seemed like an ideal day out. Well, I’ve never seen a little girls eyes light up quite like my niece’s did when I told her that as long as she was on green carpet, the food was safe to eat. We rolled out of that show in the end! With bags stuffed full of gluten free goodies. So of…

    The Road To Going Gluten Free Pt.1

    So back in May I accidentally found out what has been wrong with my digestive system since I was a teenager. You can read more about how I found out HERE. The story hasn’t stopped there like I thought it would though. I’m going to start a mini series, keeping a diary of the road to my new gluten free life. A couple of weeks ago I was sent a new shampoo and conditioner to review on my blog and I started using it like any good blogger would. About 4 hours after the first use I had some of the worst gluten reactions I’d had in a long time.…

    Going Gluten Free at 30(ish)

    I’ve always known that something wasn’t right with my digestive system, since as long as I can remember I’ve had issues with diarrhea (sorry TMI) and excessive bloating after eating but I could never quite pinpoint what it was that was causing it. For ages I cut out raw spinach because I read it can trigger IBS…. Turns out it wasn’t that! My niece was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease at just over a year old. She was so ill, it was sad to see but my sister had to put her on a gluten free diet to see if it made her better then put her back on a normal…

    Creamy Chicken Pasta

    I normally try making recipes at least twice before I post them on my blog but I had quite a few requests on all my social media accounts for this Creamy Chicken Pasta. It was quite simple to make and it came out really well so there’s no point holding out to make it a second time. Everyone in my house thouroughly enjoyed this and it’s definitely going to be something I make regularly as it’s not much effort to make which is right up my street these days! This does require a slow cooker but it’s not a recipe you can leave all day as it doesn’t take long…
