Gluten and Dairy Free Egg-In-The-Hole Pizza Bagels

Hello everyone

I’m starting my Christmas recipe planning as we only have a few weeks to go until it is December and I feel I can officially talk about Christmas.  I’m in the kitchen experimenting with a marbled chocolate and Bailey’s Almande cheesecake.

This year I’m thinking of doing some Christmas dessert recipes and also some trimmings/side dish as I don’t really have any free from recipes for these on the site just now.

Today’s recipe is one of my favourite weekend breakfast items.  Lovely gluten free bagels topped with tomatoes and dairy free cheese with an egg surprise in the middle.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Lemon Cupcakes with Lavender Kisses

Hello everyone

Hope you are all having a good week so far.  Tonight’s recipe is for lovely little lemon and lavender cupcakes.  I made these to take into work last week and decided to take a quick photograph and share the recipe.

if you don’t fancy the lavender flavour you can leave it out or if you don’t have the time meringue kisses you can still make the lemon cupcakes.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Chicken and Mushroom Stroganoff

Hello

I had the cold this weekend so decide to take it easy on Sunday afternoon and type up a load of recipes I had in my notepad.  I’ve also started to plan out what Christmas recipes I’ll share in December, most of which I’ve till to photograph!

Today’s recipe is one I made and photographed months ago and never got round to sharing.  It is for a simple dinner of chicken and mushroom stroganoff.  After doing some research I found that stroganoff is either served with rice or flat egg noodles.  I’ve only ever had it with rice so wanted to try it with the noodles.  To get a gluten free version I’ve used Tesco free from tagliatelle – probably not authentic at all but in my humble opinion worked very well as a gluten free substitute in this dish.

Enjoy!

Butternut Squash and Granny Smith Apple Soup

Hello everyone

Today’s recipe is actually one my friend gave me – he always has good soup recipes.  I wanted to try it out on my family and see if it is a goer for the starter at Christmas dinner.  I know it is far too early to be thinking about that but I come from a very organised family!

The flavours in this soup are beautiful, you can really taste the apple.  A lot of time when you buy something with a  flavour added in you can’t actually taste it.  I had a tomato soup with orange from a cafe the other day and I couldn’t taste the orange at all.

What is the most interesting soup flavour you have tried?

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Sticky Gingerbread Blondies

Hello everyone

As it is Bonfire Night this week I thought I would share a gingerbread recipe.  I’m not sure if you actually have seasonal cakes but I tend to think of pretty cupcakes in the summer and spiced cakes like gingerbread in the winter.

I’m not sure if these actually fit the definition of a blondie as it doesn’t have any white chocolate but rather the consistency of the bar is like a brownie.  A few months ago I shared a recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Apple Pie Blondies that turned out to be popular so I thought I would make a gingerbread version.  I hope you like them.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Caramelised Balsamic Onion Risotto

Hello everyone

If I’m having a leisurely Sunday I sometimes like to cook a lovely risotto for dinner.  Often on a menu when I’m dining out the risotto is a gluten free option but can’t be done dairy free.   I think I have only ever comes across a dairy free risotto once but I might just be looking in the wrong place.  When we had our Italy trip last year we went to Varenna on Lake Como and I had a beautiful gluten and dairy free mushroom risotto at a lovely restaurant right on the water.

In this risotto the caramelised balsamic onions are the star of the dish.  If you want to try another flavour of risotto I have a few on the website from smoked trout and lemon risotto to a roasted butternut squash and sage recipe.

Enjoy!
