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 Wonderful World of Twitter

Aren't tweeple brilliant?

I was contacted on Twitter yesterday by @twicipetweet who compiles recipes of 140 characters or less on Twitter, and has been doing for a few months now.  @twicipetweet has collected all these recipes on www.twicipe.com and suggested I have a look.

Have a look I did, and was amazed to see several pages of tweet-length recipes - some familiar, being recently tweettreated ones - but many more new.

@twicipetweet then very kindly said

"you are more than welcome to use any recipe you find on twicipe, #tweettreats is a fantastic idea" 

As a result of @twicipetweet's generosity, our running total of #tweettreat recipes now stands at 313!  Yes, we are now about one quarter of our way to our goal. 

@twicipetweet is today's rockstar of #tweettreat.  Who will be tomorrow's? ;)
