Gluten free jam tarts [DF, GF, SF]

Baking always goes down well with a 3-year-old at home and allergies don’t need to be a barrier to this! We like to bake on weekends, mostly because we have more time to clean up and spend together. This recipe is made using homemade gluten-free shortcrust pastry, but you can buy ready-rolled too!

Gluten free shortcrust pastry [DF, GF, SF]

In our home, we love to do lots of baking. It is a great cheap way to have fun with little ones and also it is pretty easy to rectify mistakes when you’re rolling out pastry. Especially if you make something simple like jam tarts or cheese straws. This gluten-free shortcrust pastry is cheap, easy to make and can be kept in the fridge for a couple of days if you want to spread out the baking fun with little ones!

These pastry cases were made using this gluten free shortcrust pastry recipe – my 3 year old made these cases herself so I think that shows the pastry is fairly easy to work with!

Red pepper pasta sauce [DF, GF, SF]

Every parent has a meal in their repetoire that is ideal for the nights when you’re low on motivation, or time. Being a parent of a child with allergies, and teaching my child about allergies, means that it can be harder to knock up meals quickly. I need to ensure the kitchen is clean and safe before cooking begins and I try to involve Daisy wherever I can too. This red pepper pasta sauce recipe is one of my fail safe dinners. Daisy will ALWAYS eat it, I can add some veggies and protein to bulk it out and it is pretty cheap too!

“Am I allowed this Mummy?” – teaching my child about allergies

Parenting a child with FPIES can be so hard. First up there are the physical symptoms; vomiting often until unconsciousness, but then, as your child gets older, you have to start to teach them about FPIES, and allergies. I want to share with you how I am teaching my child about allergies. I’m not professing to be an expert, and this post is just written based on my own experiences, but I hope someone will find it helpful! My daughter is 3, so I have kept everything fairly simple, but I hope this post will give you a frame to base your own learning experiences on, and perhaps inspire some new ways to talk about allergies.

Gluten free cornflake tart [DF, SF, GF]

I’m a big fan of money saving, particularly when it comes to regular household bills and expenses. One area where we spend quite a lot of money, food wise, is on snacks and treats for Daisy. With 4 small bakewell tarts costing £2.00 and 6 jam tarts costing £2.50 this really prompts me to make my own. It’s a little more time consuming but I know that Daisy loves my cooking and appreciates all the treats. Recently I made this gluten free cornflake tart and I’ve had quite a few messages asking me for the recipe – so here it is!
