    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…

    Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Muffins

    I can’t bake, I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t got the patience or I am genuinely just awful at it but anything I’ve ever tried has always come out terrible. I’ve been eating more cake since I went Gluten Free than I ever did before. Shop bought cakes are ridiculously expensive and my shopping bill is now so much higher because of it. I decided to save myself some pennies and make my own! I scoured countless different recipes (gluten and gluten free ones) but decided a flourless, gluten free chocolate brownie would be the best option. Then I don’t feel like I’m baking so less will go…

    Healthy Sloppy Joes

    Sloppy Joes are a classic American dish. I will probably have American’s say that I’ve ruined it here but I like this healthy Sloppy Joes version. Plus, I’ve never actually tried the real thing. It was actually Mr’s fault I made this recipe, I had some 5% fat mince that I didn’t really know what to do with and we didn’t fancy Bolognese or Chilli again. He googled “recipes using mince” and one of the things that came up was Sloppy Joes. I checked the recipe and realised I could make that to suit my diet! Healthy Sloppy Joes were easy! I have used gluten free worcestershire sauce and a gluten free roll…

    Carrot & Sweet Potato Cakes

    I’ve decided this month I’m going to go as gluten free as I can to see if it helps my stomach at all. My niece has Coeliac disease and it’s supposed to run in the family, I’ve had stomach upsets for years but I always put it down to a bad diet, it’s been a lot better since I changed my diet 2 years ago but I still get the odd flare up and it’s usually when I’ve had pizza or pasta. I do get bloated quite a lot too so even though I know I’m not coeliac, I think I’m definitely sensitive to gluten. I made these potato cakes…

    KFC Style Crispy Chicken

    These KFC Style Crispy Chicken strips are a firm favourite in our house. They taste just as good as their greasy counterparts, if not better! Even the kids agree so they must be good! I do now make my KFC Style crispy chicken with gluten free bread. It means I can eat them without the stomach ache. Something I don’t think I’ll ever manage with the real KFC! You will ideally need a food processor for this recipe to make breadcrumbs. I tried making it using a hand blender once…. It didn’t go too well. We love a Fakeaway and I have more recipes to try. How about a bit…
