Happy Pancake Day! For pancakes with a difference, try these Sweetcorn Pancakes from my book, Simply Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free. Although they’re a healthy, savoury version, the sweetcorn gives them a sweet flavour. And I’ve used soya cream, instead of milk, to get a lovely thick, creamy batter. These make a delicious light meal – and…

Zoe_Making_Gluten-Free_Dairy-Free_Ham_Pineapple_Pizza

A while ago, I took Zoe to a pizza-making class at our local farmers’ market. Surrounded by other kids piling on different toppings, Zoe made a very simple pizza, using just pineapple and ham. I asked her whether she wanted to add peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, or anything else, but she was very clear that she […]

Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free Cheese & Sun-Dried Tomato Muffins

g I’ve been on a quest to make gluten-free baked goodies all taste wonderfully soft and moist inside. It’s hard to get the right balance of flour to liquid when you’re baking gluten-free, and cakes, cupcakes, muffins, biscuits, bread and all such things, and they can easily come out of the oven too dry and […]

Post-detox – and I have a plan for keeping the weight off and making sure I carry on eating a nutrient-dense diet. The first and easiest thing is to continue having juices/smoothies for breakfast. I’ve always loved doing this but I’d slipped out of the routine. Firmly back into it now, though! This recipe showcases…

There are excellent dairy-free products available now, especially soya products. And I really like using soya cream when I’m cooking. This morning, Zoë and I used it to make a thick batter for Sweetcorn Pancakes (you can find the recipe in my recent book, Simply Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free) and it’s also great in this recipe,…
