Egg-free Vegetarian Christmas Stuffing

Egg-free Vegetarian Christmas Stuffing

Stuffing is an essential part of Christmas lunch but it so often contains egg, nuts or other allergens (or meat and so I avoid it!). This year we’re having Christmas at home and I wanted to make so…

Nut-free Pecan Pie

Nut-free Pecan Pie

Do you celebrate Thanksgiving? For us it’s familiar from cinema but not in real life. But I find celebrations are always a great source of inspiration, and I felt that it would be a good way to gra…

Crunchy Munchy Granola

Crunchy Munchy Granola

I reckon Granola with soya yogurt makes a great dairy-free breakfast, but it’s almost an impossibility to find Granola or museli that is free of nuts or traces of nuts in the UK. So I made my…

Beans in sleeping bags (not quite sausage rolls)

Beans in sleeping bags (not quite sausage rolls)

Picnic food is quite a challenge if you’re dairy-free. The sandwich options are fairly limited – ok, if you eat meat there are easy options like ham. But if you don’t and can&#821…

Dairy-free dauphinoise

Dairy-free dauphinoise

Mmmm, potato dauphinoise is one truly delightful potato dish. While this is by no means as creamy, unctuous and rich as the dairy version (I like Hugh Fearnley Wittingstall’s) it’s a go…

Lucky Clover Cookies

Lucky Clover Cookies

It may still be March, but the weather today looks perfect for a trip to the beach. As I’ve mentioned before, picnics are very hard if you are egg/dairy/nut-free. It’ll be sandwiches, c…

Vanilla Thins

Vanilla Thins

For a dairy-free cookie these are remarkably ‘buttery’ and are perfect for cutting into any shape and even icing. I made them for little S to take into school in a flower shape as it&#8…

So it’s Easter Weekend…

So it’s Easter Weekend…

Easter is a bit different for us, in a household where the children are dairy-free, egg-free and nut-free. All my children’s friends are overdosing on milk chocolate eggs, and decorating the …

Sainsbury’s, this time you did impress (ice lollies part II)

Sainsbury’s, this time you did impress (ice lollies part II)

As I’ve mentioned before, Sainsbury’s is normally a complete nightmare to shop in if you are dairy, egg and nut-free, with a complete lack of (or even non existence of) choice in a lot …

Dairy-free Fromage Frais

Dairy-free Fromage Frais

I made up this recipe ages ago when Big S was tiny. All the other toddlers we came across seemed to eat a lot of fromage frais from those cute little yogurt pots, but all Big S could have was large…

Caramel Sauce

Caramel Sauce

You don’t get to eat much caramel if you’re on a dairy-free diet. That’s a shame, as caramel has always been a favourite of mine (mmm, Cadbury’s Caramel!) and has a lot of s…

Home-made Egg-free Pasta

Home-made Egg-free Pasta

I always wanted to make some home-made pasta – I even gave D a pasta machine a few years ago as a birthday present, but somehow it never saw the light of day until today. There always seem to…

P… P… P… Pick Up a Dairy-free Penguin Bar

P… P… P… Pick Up a Dairy-free Penguin Bar

Old Town Oaties

Old Town Oaties

This is my long-time fall back chunky chocolate chip cookie, enriched with oats and soft brown sugar. I’ve never made them egg-free before, but they worked really well…. it’s just…

At Last An Egg-Free Frangipane

At Last An Egg-Free Frangipane

This is the recipe for the frangipane layer used in the Knockout Pear and Almond Pastries that I posted yesterday. I thought it was probably worth posting the recipe for just the frangipane as I&#8…

Knockout Pear and Almond pastries (aka Jalousie aux Poires)

Knockout Pear and Almond pastries (aka Jalousie aux Poires)

It worked! I am so, so pleased! :-) My second foray into making French patisserie (as taught by the wonderful Claire Clark when she was a teacher at Le Cordon Bleu) but egg and dairy-free, has turn…
