Grain Free Sandwich Bread

Grain Free Sandwich Bread that’s also Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free, Paleo and SCD Legal! Ahhhh Bread! My favourite food in the world and the thing I miss most of all.  There is nothing better than a big slab of granary toast with butter, or a crusty baguette dipped in olive oil, or a gooey Focaccia or…

Chicken & Chorizo Stew with Rioja, Spanish Style

Firstly I’d just like to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR!  I hope 2017 brings you all health, happiness and prosperity and that you and your loved ones have had fun celebrating the festive season.  We spent our New Years in Madrid (more about that in another blog post), but with memories of Spain fresh in…

Sugar Shack at the Jackdaw & Star – Homerton, London

Last night Dan and I decided to try the restaurant run by the Celebrity TV Chef Andi Oliver and her business partner Kelly.  Andi is a regular face on Saturday Kitchen and is taking over from Pru Leith as the host of the Great British Menu in the next series so I’m sure she will be…

Cauliflower Cheese

This is one of those dishes that I’ve been craving for ages and has now just become a reality thanks to the invention of my flour and milk free Bechamel Sauce.  It’s one of those foods that most people have as a side dish but which I could have for dinner just on its own!…

Slow-Cooker Coq Au Vin

A classic, warming, slow-cooked French Dish today – Coq Au Vin (or at least my version of it, as apparently traditional Coq Au Vin adds chicken blood to the sauce – but I didn’t find that idea very appetising! Start by melting the butter (or you could use oil to make the recipe dairy-free) and…

Chicken in a Lemon, Rosemary & White Wine Sauce

After a heavy red-meat type of weekend with Slow Roast Beef Brisket and my Paleo Lasagne we’d decided on chicken tonight as a lighter option for dinner and I wanted something fairly healthy without too much fat.  I find that if you use herbs right then they add all the flavour you need to food and you…

Best Slow-Cooker Bolognese Sauce

Bolognese Sauce (or bolognaise as the English call it) – that classic Italian dish that everyone seems to have a different recipe for.  Below is mine – perfected over many years and many attempts and this is the way I prefer to eat it… First you need to peel and dice the onions.  Add these to…

Boeuf Bourguignon

Is there anything better than a warm, hearty stew, when the weather is cold outside – and this is the most famous of them all, the classic French dish of Boeuf Bourguignon (beef casserole with added red wine and a fancy french name!) with a bit of a twist to make it grain and gluten-free….

Smoked Salmon & Summer Vegetable ‘Risotto’

Tonight I was staying at my parents’ house, and it was just going to be my mum and I as my dad was away.  We both like to eat the same thing and we both eat a similar diet.  Her’s is the Specific Carbohydrate Diet which is quite a bit stricter than the made-up one…

Caprese Chicken ‘Pasta’ with Courgetti Spaghetti

This post was published on my Courgetti Spaghetti Recipe Round-Up Tonight the weather was a bit miserable so I wanted something warming and comforting.  Not able to eat ‘pasta’ as such, I decided on cooking a Courgetti Spaghetti dish using my spiraliser.  Longing to be back in Puglia I went with an Italian theme and decided…
