Millionaire Shortbread (Vegan & GF)

So I’ve been making this millionaire shortbread for a while now and it’s always been a hit with friends and family. With my food intolerances, I have adapted my original recipe to ensure that one of my favourites was something I wouldn’t have to miss out on. This recipe is gluten free, refined sugar free…

GF Vegan Lemon Tagliatelle with Garlic Bread

So I have another Vegan recipe for you guys. Having some Italian heritage, I love pasta so when I found out I had to go gluten free, it was pretty tough for me but there are so many good products out there now that taste exactly the same. When I’m thinking about my weekly pasta…

Veggie Pad Thai

So I’m in my second week of being mostly vegan (yes I slipped at the weekend 👎🏽). Anyway today’s lunch was yesterday’s leftovers of Pad Thai. This is a great meal to make for food prep as it keeps fresh for a few days and I can get three servings out of this recipe. I…

Avocado Pesto Pasta

So I’ve been off grid for a little while, unfortunately poorly. I’m currently going through various tests and no results as of yet but I have decided to add dairy free to my remit, and it is helping. I’m almost vegan so tonight’s meal reflects that with a very clean, dairy free, gluten free meal,…

Portobello Mushroom Burger

So I almost went vegan tonight minus the egg but either way, this dish is super healthy and vegetarian. I’m still trying to work out what I can and can’t eat so it’s been a long time since I’ve had mushrooms, and God I missed them. Whether I’m allowed them or not, this is still…

Cod in Garlic Butter

I’m a bit of a garlic lover! The boyfriend doesn’t appreciate it but it tastes great and it is has a number of health benefits. It is also a great accompaniment to Cod which is the the focus of today’s meal. Yes the butter isn’t the healthiest of things but this is a naturally low…

Happy National Egg Day

Another day being celebrated this week in the US but not the UK. They clearly celebrate food a lot more than we do! Anyway, eggs…it’s quite simple, I love those little pockets of protein. I get through anywhere between 10-30 eggs a week, whether that’s in meals such as Egg Fried Rice, Poached Eggs and…

Happy National Hazelnut Cake Day

So apparently in the US, today, June 1st, is National Hazelnut Cake Day. I may not be from the US, but I’m bringing National Hazelnut Cake Day to the UK!! I love hazelnuts, especially hazelnut chocolate spread so I have made these little gluten free cupcakes with a gooey centre. This recipe is actually completely flour free and…

Leek and Potato Soup

So I seem to have a bit of a soup theme this week. Those of you that have read about my inspiration behind creating this blog, will know that potatoes is a no-no! In fact they are worse for me than gluten. Anyway, before I developed intolerances, or before I knew about it at least,…

Butternut Squash Soup

I love soup!! Its simple, its hearty and its great for those days where you don’t fancy much. This Butternut Squash Soup is perfect for me as its yeast free, gluten free and this may appeal to some of my readers, it’s vegan! Ready in less than an hour, this will make a big batch…

Beef Tacos

Tacos…so simple and so delicious and let’s face it, if you cook them yourself, they’re a healthy meal, full of flavour. These are fast becoming a firm staple during the week because they are really quick and simple to make. My marinade for this recipe could be used for beef, chicken, fish or vegetable so…

Duck Breast with Passion Fruit and Asian Vegetables

As some of you may already know from previous recipes, I am a big lover of duck breast. I also love Asian food as I find it fresh, versatile and easy to play about with when creating recipes. Playing with fruit and main meals though is something I’m less experienced in but Masterchef inspired me!…
