Slow cooker gluten free sausage cassoulet [DF, GF, SF]

I love using my slow cooker as it is a real time saver. Being able to load it up in the morning, and then go about my day is so useful. Daisy loves helping me chuck the ingredients into the slow cooker and I always encourage her to join me. I find that this makes Daisy more interested in eating her dinner and that is a win for me! This slow cooker gluten free sausage cassoulet takes just minutes to prepare and has such a deep, rich flavour.

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.

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.

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.
