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?

Brought to you by the letter "A"

Hi all,

After appointing the second rockstar of #tweettreat @helen_kara, who follows @twicipetweet, I set a challenge for today.  The challenge was to tweet a recipe, in which the main ingredient had to begin with the letter A.  I am judge, jury and executioner and what I say goes. Right? Right!

Anyway, based purely on drool factor, today's winning #tweettreat is:

"Chop asparagus, fry in butter with garlic,add oyster mushrooms,dijon mustard,white wine,cream,tarragon.Stir into pasta."

Does that sound good or what?

And so without further ado, today's rockstar of #tweettreat is..... @christinemosler! Well done Christine. :)

That brings us to the next challenge, to be decided on Monday. Since today is Friday, traditionally a day to eat fish in several cultures, I will award rockstar status to the tweeter of the best fish recipe.  I'm not a big fish fan, so if you can make me drool, you'll be doing well!

Good luck everyone, keep those fantastic recipes coming.  I have 350 now, but I still need many more.

Have a great weekend!
