Spiced Sweet Potato, Carrot & Pepper Soup

Happy New Year to You All. Wishing you a great year filled with lots of happiness. This is deliciously warming and satisfying soup, especially when you add in the baked parsnip chips on the side.

There's Something About… Pancakes

They cry out for dairy-free creamy mushrooms and your favourite fresh herb. Or for the "sweet-tooths" out there grab the homemade raspberry jam or sugar and lemon wedges. Another favourite here is maple syrup drizzle, a scoop or two of homemade dairy-free ice cream and chocolate sauce.

Dairy-free Banana & Peanut Ice Cream

Imagine smooth, velvety creaminess. This indulgent dairy-free ice cream leaves you drooling for more. Or maybe that's just me! 

No need for an ice cream maker and once you have the ingredients inhouse then it's a joy to make. 

 
 

Crunchy Cornflake Buns

Remember as a child making rice crispy buns? Here's a play on the "throwing" nearly a packetful of rice krispies into the warmed and melted chocolate. Use cornflakes instead for, what I think is, a far crispier texture than rice krispies. 

Mulled Apple Juice

Well the winter surely hit in the last few days, so cold in Ireland isn't it? I usually have mulled wine, cider or apple juice nearer to Christmas but caved in over the weekend. Whether it does or not I convinced myself that it warms me up. mugful but it is certainly not like the sweeter versions that are my norm. Hope you like it.

Dairy-free Choc & Vanilla Ice Cream Torte

Now here's one you'll thank me for when you get that call from one of your guests to say they are intolerant to dairy, gluten or is a vegan. This dairy-free chocolate and vanilla ice cream torte looks like you went to an awful lot of effort. Who's to know, unless you tell them, that it's from shop bought ingredients.

Dark Choc, Almond & Cranberry Spelt Puffs

During the Holiday season: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas we're all going to be very busy buying presents, goodies and what not.  It's easy to forget about, or only see a guest or family member on a restrictive diet as a nuisance or a weight bearing down heavily on you to sort out. Here's a quick and easy one to have at the ready which is easy to adjust depending on dietary needs.  

Broccoli & Basil Soup

Do you prefer making a soup out of broccoli than having it as a side vegetable, or is it just me? I do as you can add so many wonderful vegetables and nuts to it for a more interesting flavour.

Having it as a side vegetable, unless smothered in a 'creamy' sauce, just doesn't really light my fire. Since I know it's so healthy for me I try to eat it regularly so when I'm in a hurry I tend to just make up this easy soup below. Also as a snack afterwards I chew on a roasted walnuts with the cuppa of herbal tea.
