Although we have now started to introduce gluten in to Annie’s diet, at the moment she is only having one gluten meal a day. She’s still loving her lunch time gluten free muffins in her lunch box and gets really giddy every time she sees it come out of the baby bag. I made these in my new silicone tray at the weekend. Although it … Continue reading Gluten Free Pizza Muffins -Suitable for BLW
The one thing I really miss about my pre coeliac days is been able to pick up the phone on a lazy Sunday evening and order a take away because I can’t be bothered cooking. Those days for me are long gone, I’m not lucky enough to live within an delivery catchment area of a good take away that caters fully for a gluten free … Continue reading Gluten Free Garlic Chapatti
This is a staple recipe of mine that has been handed down by my late mother. It’s a firm favourite of all the members of my family including my kids. You really can’t do baby led weaning without a portion of spaghetti bolognese, I recommend running the bath before hand and stripping you baby to a nappy and vest before beginning. The main reasons we … Continue reading Nice and Easy Spaghetti Bolognese- Gluten Free
Two set backs already without even trying any actual gluten yet. As if by magic Annabelle woke up on Monday morning full of snot, although she appears fine in herself no temperature or grumps. I hoping I can still introduce gluten on Saturday as planned but I will have to see how she is. I’m still planning on getting her weighed and measured but (set … Continue reading Annie’s Weaning Gluten Trial

When I weaned my son back in 2003, I did so in line with the NHS guidelines at the time, which were vastly different to current guidelines. Looking back my son wasn’t ready to be weaned but it was a different time and we … Continue reading Weaning and Introducing Gluten

I know Just Roll sell gluten free puff pastry in branches of Tesco and Asda but I can’t for the life of me find any in my local branches and I’ve visited loads of them. I think I’ll have more luck sourcing a real life breathing unicorn for my daughters first birthday than finding Just Roll’s gluten free ready to roll puff pastry. Normally when … Continue reading Gluten Free No Puff Pastry No Problem Pinwheels – red pepper and cheese.
These are my favourite muffins to bake the smell in my kitchen when these are in the oven is fantastic. They smell so good that my partner asked to try one, he’s the only gluten eater in my house at the moment and he’s been by my side since before I got my diagnosis and he has tried some pretty awful gluten free food over … Continue reading Gluten Free Carrot, Tomato and Parsley Muffins-Suitable for Baby Led Weaning
Yesterday we drove the 50 minutes to to recently refurbished Morrisons store in Guiseley Leeds. The store boosts a brilliant free from section, which has a counter for salads and pizzas. Which can be made to order, like in normal supermarkets for normal pizzas. Next to this counter is the free from shelves then the free from chiller and the free from freezer. It’s great … Continue reading Morrisons at Guiseley Leeds
