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?

A Poultry Excuse

Howdy all,

Today's challenge was set by @CountryLets, and it was for poultry recipes.  I've already received quite a few, so I was pleasantly surprised to get still more.

The competition between recipe tweeters is heating up these days, and certain people keep excelling themselves by producing more and more great #tweettreats.  It's also great to see a few new faces (avatars?) even if their recipes aren't quite as sophisticated... ;)

Still, with a big E for Effort, here is today's rockstar:

"Put chicken, sweetcorn, celery, pineapple, olive oil, lemon juice and a few pinches sugar in bowl. Mix up and eat with bread."

And today's rockstar is @ukegnome! Absolutely no groupies for him. ;) (In case any of you are wondering why I'm being mean to him, it's cos he's my husband. So there.)

Tomorrow's challenge has once again been set by a guest, in this case @helen_kara.  She says: "for next challenge, how about veggie main courses? No meat, no fish, no by-products (gelatine, rennet, Worcestershire sauce etc)"

So there you have it, a completely veggie challenge for tomorrow! I know that'll please a lot of you. Feel free to include Vegan dishes in that, if you feel so inclined. :)
