Gluten and Dairy Free Chicken and Spinach Pasta Salad

Hello

Last week I shared a gluten and dairy free basil pesto recipe and said I would follow up with a few recipes on how you could use it.  The first of these recipes is this simple chicken and spinach pasta salad.

I have been trying to make more varied lunches to take to work and these chicken pasta salad bowls are perfect.  They also stay fresh in the fridge for a couple of days so you can make in advance ready to pack for lunch.

As the weather is getting colder again and these is a snow warning tomorrow I’ll share my favourite gluten and dairy free soup recipes.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Veggie Scrambled Eggs

Hello

Yesterday was a big day food wise – my niece had her first little bit of food. It was funny to watch her reaction to pureed carrot – I think most of it went on her face rather than into her mouth.

Today I’m going to try and have a get things done day – I’m going to do some food prep for the week ahead.  If it all works well I’ll share the recipes as one of my lovely Facebook followers has been asking for some help with meal planning.

I made this lovely little breakfast bowl one Sunday morning just after Christmas.   Its basically scrambled eggs with a little dairy free cheese, some herbs and loads of tasty vegetables.  You can use this recipe as a basic guide and add in whatever you want to suit your tastes.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Salted Caramel Chocolate Cupcakes

Hello

Tonight’s recipe is for these delicious chocolate salted caramel cupcakes.  They actually have a bit of a sad story attached to them though.  I made them for a work buddy but unfortunately he was off sick – so not only was he sick on his birthday but he missed out on the cake as we ate them all.

You can adjust the salt in the caramel sauce to suit your own tastebuds and if you are not needing the cakes to be gluten free you can make these recipe easier by using shop bought caramel sauce.

The torn cornea is still causing me trouble and I’ve been wandering around like a rockstar wearing sunglasses indoors – Ollie cat has been very sympathetic though.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Basil Pesto

Hello

Another shortish post from me tonight as I still have one eye covered with a patch. I’ve been getting odd stares wearing my sunglasses in the rain to protect the injured eye!  Anyway I’m off to see a specialist consultant tomorrow so fingers crossed they’ll tell me I can ditch the eye patch.

Back to recipe chat now rather than me moaning about my EDS problems. I made this pesto over the Christmas holidays and then used it in a number of recipes which I’ll share with you on the coming weeks.

Hope you guys are having a good week so far.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Glazed Sausages with Apple Slaw

Hello everyone

I made this recipe ages ago and forgot to upload it to the website.  This is a really simple but tasty dinner idea.  Lovely sticky glazed sausages on top of a fresh apple slaw.  As I have a big appetite I served this with some roast potatoes as well.

I moaned a bit in my last post about having a torn cornea in my eye.  I’ve had a fun weekend of treatment for that and I’m now sitting typing this out looking like a pirate with an eye patch.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Raspberry Sundae Cupcakes

Hello

These cupcakes are probably a bit out of season – ice cream sundaes make me think more about summer but they definitely cheered me up making them in the middle of winter.

Going for a short post night as I’ve torn the cornea in my eye (damn Ehlers Danlos Syndrome) and it is very painful to use a computer so I may be a quiet for a bit while I get it sorted.

Enjoy!
