Our favourite cheesey Free From crisps

One thing that was a favourite and was very missed when Steve first had to go dairy free was cheese and onion crisps! Many crisps have milk in and some contain wheat. Finding tasty dairy free and gluten free was a mission. Chilli cheese hummus crisps are perfect when you want a bit of crunchContinue reading “Our favourite cheesey Free From crisps”

Rich Chocolate Orange Cake

This is very rich and indulgent but delicious! It’s dairy free and gluten free so ticks all of the boxes for us. The cake it makes is big enough to serve 8-10 people comfortably as you only need a small slice. Ellie loves making it with me and Steve gives it a solid “10 outContinue reading “Rich Chocolate Orange Cake”

Salmon fingers with wedges

These are tasty but are a little bit time consuming to make when you consider that supermarkets now stock gluten free fish fingers. They are nice as a “posh fish finger” for a change though. Ingredients 150g polenta 1 tsp paprika 400g salmon fillet 1 egg Sunflower oil for frying 500g potatoes 2 tbsp oliveContinue reading “Salmon fingers with wedges”

Tomato and lentil soup in the slow cooker

Being a full time teacher and a Mum, time is a very precious commodity! I love cooking but often get home from work and want to spend time with my family rather than in the kitchen. This soup is great as you can make it when you have the time and then reheat it whenContinue reading “Tomato and lentil soup in the slow cooker”

A good dairy and gluten free squirty cream!

This dairy free squirty cream has been a bit of a game changer for us. It’s quick and convenient, has a good shelf life and tastes yummy. The only down side we’ve found is that it does go a bit runny quite quickly after being squirted onto your pudding. We always have a can inContinue reading “A good dairy and gluten free squirty cream!”

Our dairy free milk preferences

We have tried many different dairy free milk alternatives and I know that people do have their own personal preferences. When you look at all that’s on offer it can be a little overwhelming where to start! We’ve been through almond, soy, oat, coconut…… after all of that trying and testing here’s our thoughts! OurContinue reading “Our dairy free milk preferences”

Oak Bistro afternoon tea party was amazing!

We live in a little village called Greasby on the Wirral. We decided to host my eldest daughter’s birthday party in Oak Bistro. She’d chosen to have afternoon tea with all of the family so we booked our party and let them know about the dietary requirements. I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect them toContinue reading “Oak Bistro afternoon tea party was amazing!”

Bella Italia is belissima!

We booked Bella Italia in New Brighton for Steve’s birthday meal. The menu looked quite accommodating so we decided to give it a go. We weren’t disappointed. Steve had the gluten free calabrese with no mascarpone so it was also dairy free. He really enjoyed it. The staff were very accommodating as on this occasionContinue reading “Bella Italia is belissima!”

Our “go to” free From restaurant!

As a family with both parents working full time we sometimes want to forget the cooking and go somewhere we know will give us all a great meal. Our “go to” restaurant is the Marino Lounge in New Brighton on the Wirral. Not near you? This restaurant is part of a chain and we haveContinue reading “Our “go to” free From restaurant!”
