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!View Post

A selection of allergy-friendly recipes. Gluten-free recipes, wheat free recipes, dairy free recipes, soya free recipes, Xanthan gum free recipes.
When making dairy free items I’m always pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to convert basic baking items. For butter, we typically substitute with Vitalite (the sunflower one) and for milk, we use almond milk, which is our preferred dairy free alternative. These dairy free oat biscuits have been a favourite in our home for a couple of years now. They are simple to make, fairly cheap and you can freeze the dough or the leftovers too. The ingredients I have used are dairy free, soya free (soya lecithin may appear in the specific ingredients I used) 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! If you want a version of these biscuits with dairy and gluten then check out these homemade oat biscuits.View Post
As a parent of a 3-year-old, I am often looking for simple ways to make her a nice treat. My daughter Daisy loves to help in the kitchen and so I’m always trying out new and easy ways for her to get involved. Today I’m going to share with you my glazed gluten-free puff pastry doughnut recipe. These are SUPER simple, using shop-bought gluten-free puff pastry and they take just minutes to prepare, fry, glaze and start eating!View Post
AD. My little daughter Daisy absolutely loves a sweet treat. As she spends 3 days a week at Nursery she is becoming used to the mindset of having something for ‘pudding’ after lunch AND dinner. As I want to encourage her to eat all sorts of foods I sometimes use a little sweet treat as an encouragement for her to eat all of her vegetables or her protein sources. I have made her gluten-free jam drops, using wonderful Santa Rosa jams, that I ordered from the Ciao Gusto Italian Deli at Ocado.

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.View Post
