About Me

My photo
Three and a half years ago I became vegetarian. Three and a half weeks ago, anticipating a certain health diagnosis at any time, I also gave up all added sugar in my diet. My mother is of a certain generation and, although a very good cook, struggles to know what to offer guests with specific dietary restrictions. She once had a vegetarian and a coeliac for dinner at the same time, and nearly lost her reason! So, the idea for this blog was born. Every recipe that features here will be vegan (and, obviously, vegetarian), gluten free, sugar free, lactose and dairy free, and suitable for people on a low sodium diet. That's right, you read that correctly. Even if you have guests with each of these restrictions coming to the same meal, everything here is safe for them. And, before you expect weird and wonderful ingredients to make an appearance, everything I'm using can be bought in larger branches of all major supermarkets - you don't even need to visit health food stores. Try the recipes and tell me what you think!

So What's This Tweet Treats Thingy All About?

BBQ - Men Make Fire, Burn Things

Well, as regular followers of mine on Twitter and readers of this blog will know, I goofed.  I thought I was going here last weekend, but actually it's the weekend coming. Sigh. Anyway, we're supposed to be having a BBQ on Friday night when we arrive - I only hope the food there is half as yummy as some of the suggestions I got today for #tweettreat!

25 new recipes came in last night and today, giving me a new total of 706 recipes! It's great to break the 700 mark.  Well done everyone, and thanks again. :)

As ever, I'm awarding rockstar to the recipe that made me drool the most, and today it's this one:

"Ribs/cup of apple juice/4tbsp maple syrup/bit of olive oil/2 tbsp soy sauce/garlic/star anise or5 spice, woosh together.leave overnight, BBQ"

And today's rockstar of #tweettreat is @Tracytid! Very well done. :)

Again, twitter followers will know that I shopped in Tesco today. (Yes, I really am that fascinating.) I love this time of year for the fruit, veg and salads that are so abundant, and my fridge and fruit bowl are currently groaning.  So, tomorrow's challenge is for alternative things to do with fruit. (I know what some of you are thinking - nothing kinky, please!)  We've heard the strawberries with balsamic vinegar suggestion before, what else do you do with excess fruit?

As ever, the best suggestion will win rockstar for tomorrow. :)  Thanks everyone and keep up the good work!
