Hello everyone, my latest post is for Gluten and Dairy Free Basil Pesto.  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.
