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?

The Dippiest of the Dips

I'm delighted to announce that I now have 420 #tweettreat recipes.  It's a really respectable number, and we're getting to our goal number slowly but surely.

In case anyone is wondering, the goal number for #tweettreat recipes is 1,200 - that will leave room for editing/duplication etc.  I'd hope to have 1,001 recipes in the finished book.

Today's challenge was to tweet the tastiest dip recipe for #tweettreat, and some really great ones came in - including about five versions of hummous!  However I chose today's winner because this recipe sounds not only tasty, but really unusual:

"Dip: 250g cooked beetroot(not pickled), 2 tbsp hot horseradish sauce, 100ml creme fraiche, blend until smooth, season, serve"

And today's rockstar is @CountryLets! @CountryLets was also the person who tweeted recipe no. 420, which makes her doubly great.  Congratulations!

And now for tomorrow's challenge; I'm struggling a bit diet-wise at the moment, thanks in no small part to the number of #tweettreat recipes I have to read, so tomorrow's rockstar will be the one who tweets the best-sounding low fat recipe.  Chefs hats on!

Remember, I'm collecting all recipes, all the time, not just the category for the rockstar challenge.  Keep them coming!
