Granny’s Tuna Curry

Granny’s Tuna Curry

Ok – so this is not very gourmet. I’ve discussed Gran’s cooking here. Saying that however, this is one of the favourite dishes in this house, particularly with the kids. Even Mary has been known to say she likes this one, although she might just be showing respect to elders, […]

Kiddies Corn Fritters

Kiddies Corn Fritters

These have always a staple in our family. I think they started off as a breakfast item, but now they are one of the most frequently requested dinner veggies, and I always save some for the lunchbox the next day. Considering we have switched to being gluten and dairy free, […]

Tiger Fish

Tiger Fish

Well, it’s not actually tiger-fish. That’s just for the benefit of Goldilocks, my picky 5 year old. He hates just about everything, except the things I can’t feed him, namely gluten and dairy. Oh, and sugar of course. He LOVES sugar. With Goldilocks, it’s all in the eye though. If […]

Gluten free, Dairy Free Oreos

Gluten free, Dairy Free Oreos

Did you know that standard Oreos are dairy free? That means the basic recipe is very easy to adjust to also make it gluten free. My kids discovered Oreos during a minor lapse of dietry judgement on holidays, and to stop the tears at the emd of the trip, I […]

Dairy-free Carbonara

Dairy-free Carbonara

Did you know that traditional carbonara recipes often don’t contain cream? It’s amazing, isn’t it, that you can get a creamy sauce without actually using cream. Think about mayonnaise. It also doesn’t contain any dairy (if you make it yourself – who knows what they put in the jar). Egg […]

Honey Bundt

Honey Bundt

My kids have colds again.  My granny knew the cure for the common cold a long, long time ago. So did her granny, and her granny’s granny. Honey, citrus, and love. Now we have scientific proof – honey not only soothes a sore throat, it also aids in controlling bacteria […]

Corn bread without the corn meal

Corn bread without the corn meal

OK – so if you’ve read previous posts, I’m ditching wheat. I’ve said goodbye to dairy. I’m getting as much sugar as possible out of our diets. I’m also using unprocessed and non-preserved items wherever I can, to avoid a whole heap of toxic nasties. Also, when refining into meal, […]

Carrot Cookies

Carrot Cookies

Still on a low sugar diet for the kiddies. The date cakes were such a success yesterday (all gone in 24 hours), I thought I might do a twist on the carrot cake. So here we go – carrot cookies, or “Carrotees” as they are called now. Ingredients: 1/2 cup […]

Date Cakes – healthier than ordinary cupcakes

Date Cakes – healthier than ordinary cupcakes

You’re going to see some changes in my recipes. I’m trying to cut sugar out of my youngest boy’s diet. But for this sucrose monster, we’ll start with baby steps. Considering he had absolutely no sugar all day, I think he did pretty well until he broke down at 4pm […]
