Gambas Al Ajillo (à la Dan) – Garlic & Chilli Prawns/Shrimp)

Last night’s dinner was a follow-on from Madrid.  When telling Dan all about my trip, I realised that I hadn’t eaten Gambas Al Ajillo (Garlic & Chilli Prawns/Shrimp) once on the whole trip, so to rectify it we decided to make it at home, and Dan offered to cook it .  Other than his burgers…

Almond Flour Crackers (3 Ways!)

One of the things I miss most about the medical diet that I’m on is the crunch of a crisp (potato chip).  Sometimes a carrot stick really wont cut it and when everyone has the crisps and dip out it can be tough not to join in!  No longer, bring on the Guacamole!  These Almond Flour…

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

This Cinnamon Raisin Bread recipe reminds me of Sunday afternoons in front of the fire when you’ve had a big roast lunch and you just want something small for your tea.  I got the inspiration for this recipe from my Grain-Free Bread.  It’s one of my favourite recipes and I’d been thinking about doing a sweet…

Cauliflower Mash

I used to absolutely love mashed potato,   it’s the ultimate comfort food, filling and buttery and warming and creamy. Unfortunately these days, potatoes don’t comfort me so much as upset my stomach so I’ve had to find an alternative, and this is one of those alternatives that actually tastes even better than the original…

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…
