Spelt & Dairy-free Mince Pies

Do you treat yourself on Christmas Eve when all the work is done? Probably old habits with me stemming from when I was a child. After midnight Mass we’d all huddled around the coal fire as it beamed it’s heat out at us. Bear in mind there was no such thing as central heating so […]

Cranberry & Cherry Sauce

Xylitol sweetened Cherry & Cranberry Sauce

Where oh where have I been you may well ask? In short I’ve been lost working hard on a project with Tony and a lot of  time was spent in Waterford, which for those of you outside Ireland, and don’t know, is in the ‘sunny’ south-east. I hadn’t access to the internet much either so […]

Beetroot Quinoa Burger with Raw Salad & GF toast

Vegan Beetroot & Chickpea Burger

A light hearty healthy lunch packed with goodness so I think the little indulgence of some rapeseed oil isn’t any harm.  The oil does bring a nice browning to the burger which makes it look appetising. Now that I can’t eat meat (which I was never a great lover of anyhow), no dairy, no egg […]

Free from Dairy / Egg / Wheat Vegan & Vegetarian Awholesome indulgent ‘cheesy’ mix of vegetables with a crunchy walnut and gluten-free topping.

Easy on the Carbs Spaghetti Squash & ‘Creamy’ Mixed Mushrooms

Free from Dairy / Egg / Wheat I came across spaghetti squash in Avoca at the weekend, read the simple instructions on how to cook (can be microwaved, baked or boiled). I decided on baking it. The spaghetti squash caught my eye as once cooked, unlike other squash I’ve used, you run a fork lengthways […]
