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!View Post

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!View Post
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!
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!
We love a nice hearty dinner in our home. Preferably something where I can do the prep early in the day and then enjoy the fruits of my labour at the end of it. Working from home means the slow cooker can be used lots. This turkey mince cottage pie is a frugal, lower fat alternative to a slow cooker cottage pie and it is still packed with flavour.
