Slow Cooker Beef & Aubergine Curry

img_0915-1

Slow cookers are quite possibly my favourite item in my kitchen! It is so useful and can make so many different things. They're great for stews, casseroles, chilli con carne and curries. I've also made pulled pork and cooked a whole chicken in one. My favourite thing is using them to make fudge but that's … Continue reading Slow Cooker Beef & Aubergine Curry

mummybakesdairyfree does the Great British Bake Off: Week 4 Batter 

Batter week! Flour, milk and egg spring to mind when I think of batter recipes. Seeing as we are free from two of those ingredients this week's recipes should be interesting! But that hasn't deterred me! Nope, in fact this week I'm attempting two bakes. This may of course mean I'll end up with two … Continue reading mummybakesdairyfree does the Great British Bake Off: Week 4 Batter

It's bread week in the GBBO tent and it's the week I've been looking forward to both the least and most. I've never attempted making bread before so whilst I'm looking forward to the new challenge I'm also a bit of an impulsive cook. I often make things up as I go along and have … Continue reading mummybakesdairyfree does the Great British Bake Off: week 3 Bread

Coconut and Kale Fish Curry

I really love the smell from the kitchen when there is a curry being cooked. My curries are no way authentic or traditional, but they are generally easy to make and tasty. I usually fall back on adding chicken when I'm not making my sweet potato and chickpea curry, so I thought I'd try fish … Continue reading Coconut and Kale Fish Curry

Dairy Free Lasagne and Cannelloni 

How about two recipes in one? Little one really enjoys mince and pasta based dinners. Don't get me wrong I love spaghetti bolognese however sometimes it can get a bit repetitive.

A Dairy Free Party

The last couple of months have been really busy so I've finally gotten around to post about little one's birthday. Little one turned two on June 9th. I imagine most parents feel the same, but I really wasn't ready for her to turn two. She is changing everyday. Becoming more confident, learning new words and … Continue reading A Dairy Free Party
