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!

Meat Tweet Treats

Happy Friday, everyone!

Well, apparently there aren't too many carnivorous tweeple out there, cos I didn't get many recipes for red meat.  Sometimes, though, it's quality that counts rather than quantity, and the recipes I did get were lovely and sound really tasty.

As ever, it's a difficult call, but this is my favourite recipe for today:

"Beef in Guinness:Fry 2lb beef cubes & 2 onions.Add tsp flr.Stir in pnt guinness 2 carrots,thyme,parsley.Place in casserole & cook 140 2 hrs."

And today's rockstar - for the second time - is @mduffywriter! Well done again, Maria. :)

Now, your challenge for Monday!  You've a whole weekend to think about this, so I want some good ones.  Since there currently aren't enough hours in the day for me - and for many of you, too - I would like some recipes that can be fully prepared and cooked in under 20 mins. They can be breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts, snacks - I don't care, but they must be very quick to prepare.

Ok? Off you go everyone, have a great weekend and ponder some new #tweettreat recipes for me!
