Slow cooker lasagne recipe [GF]

A lasagne is a bit of a classic dinner in our home. We eat it every few weeks and it is a great way to get lots of vegetables into little ones. Our daughter Daisy loves a lasagne and when I prepare this version I typically make it GF and DF. Sometimes I make ours using standard products that are not freefrom and then I make Daisy a couple of individual lasagnes. Today I want to share with you our slow cooker lasagne recipe. This recipe is gluten free but can easily be made dairy free and soya free using a few small changes.

Individual toad in the hole [DF, GF, SF]

Having a child with multiple allergies often leads me to put off making certain foods. Toad in the hole for example. I’ve always assumed that the gluten-free flours won’t give a nice rise! This individual toad in the hole is just as simple to make as any other. The ingredients I have used are dairy free, soya free and gluten free. Please ensure you always check the ingredients you are using, as ingredients may vary by brand. Scroll down near the end of this recipe for the recipe card to get started right away!

Review: Living with Allergies: Practical tips for all the family (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted this book in exchange for coverage. I’m the parent of a child who has FPIES so it is fair to say that I know allergies absolutely suck. When Daisy was first displaying symptoms of FPIES she was vomiting up to 6 times a day. Projectile sick – not nice! Still, we muddled through and a lot of the first year of her life was spent trying to get help for her, and just get someone to listen. I spent a lot of the time feeling sad and like I had failed Daisy, thinking that no-one was ever going to say more than I was an ‘anxious first time Mum’ or ‘all babies are sick’.

Gradually, in time I started learning more about the allergy blogging community and made friends with some wonderful women who really helped me. I joined a few Facebook groups and spent time speaking to others going through the same things. Now that Daisy is 3 those times are so memorable but also are so far in the past. Reading through ‘Living With Allergies’ has brought some of those feelings back to me, but in a positive way, and I want to share with you what I feel about this book.

Review: Get Your Kids to Eat Anything (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted this book in exchange for coverage. As Mum to a child with FPIES, and multiple food allergies, I know how hard it can be to get your little one to eat well. When you have a number of food groups that you need to eliminate, due to allergies, and then your child becomes a picky eater, it can be soul destroying. I’ve spent so many hours cooking meals and hoping against all hope that my daughter Daisy will eat them. Recently I was fortunate enough to be gifted an advance copy of *Get Your Kids to Eat Anything, by my lovely friend Emily Leary, from A Mummy Too. Of course, I wanted to love this book, as it’s been created by my friend, so I started reading it and I was blown away! We’ve been using the book for a couple of weeks already, on and off. The 5-phase programme, designed to help change the way your family thinks about food, has been absolutely fantastic so far.
