Give your kids the added vitamin D, calcium and all the nutrients they need with a daily delicious peach and apricot multivitamin from Bassett's Vitamins!

Any honest parent will tell you that raising children is sometimes a battlefield. Especially when health, nutrition and wellness are concerned. Every single one of us will have fights with our children, whether it's over eating their broccoli, brushing their teeth every day or taking their vitamins. Say bye-bye to those cute smiles and angelic faces if you're offering anything other than chicken nuggets and chips. 

A daily multivitamin is an excellent way of ensuring your angelic picky eaters get all of the nutrients they require--and they won't even realise they're eating something that's good for them! In fact, I'm not adverse to plying your frisky five-year-old with a bit of a white lie and letting them believe that they're in fact munching down on a sweet and not a vitamin.

#NoDullDays Review: Bassetts Vitamin's Multivitamins

Bassett's Vitamins have been our choice of children's vitamins since our son was 3 years old, but this new flavour of peach and apricot is chock full of vitamin D and calcium, both of which are necessary for normal bone growth and development in children. And, you know what? These vitamins taste great, too!

Best Ever Gluten Free Deep Dish White Pizza - #GBBOGlutenFree

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Make the best from scratch gluten free deep dish pizza, so easy to whip up and ready in minutes!

Best Ever Gluten Free Deep Dish White Pizza

Gluten Free Deep Dish Chicken Pizza

On last week's episode of the Great British Bake Off, the contestants tackled hand-tossed pizza. Admittedly, with gluten free pizza, it'd be pretty difficult to hand toss it since there's no gluten in it to give it the stretchyness it needs. So instead, this is a tried and true recipe for deep dish gluten free pizza. You'll absolutely love it! The recipe is for a chicken-based white pizza but you should use the toppings you like best--anything and I mean anything will taste delicious on this base and you won't even believe it's gluten free.

5 Bonfire Night Gluten Free Dinners

Thursday, October 12, 2017

These five gluten free meals are perfect for serving on Bonfire Night while you watch the fireworks!
5 Gluten Free Meals for Bonfire Night

Bonfire Night, the 5th of November, Guy Fawke's Night -- no matter what you call it, it's the perfect time for getting together with friends and family under a blanket of stars on a chilly autumn night and watching the fireworks overhead. Add in a warming bowl of something hearty and delicious and you're all set for celebrating in style! 
 
Bonfire Night is one of my favourite nights of the year--we love to drive around, seeing all the glowing bonfires and watching the fireworks over the city from the comfort and warmth of our car. We usually pick the highest spot that overlooks the city, park our car and watch the fireworks explode, filling our tummies with snacks and hot drinks. The night usually begins with a hearty meal at home beforehand and we're suckers for something warming and filling and inherently autumnal.
 
Below you'll find 5 of the best gluten free comforting meals to enjoy on Bonfire Night. I've also included my favourite indulgent gluten free sticky toffee pudding brownies and a super easy recipe for lactose free pumpkin spice lattes you can make at home and fill a flask with before you head out! Remember, remember, the 5th of November!

Gluten Free Portuguese Custard Tarts - #GBBOGlutenFree

Gluten Free Portuguese Custard Tarts

For years I've seen Portuguese custard tarts in shops and restaurants and could never bring myself to try them. It was something about the perceived texture of them that put me off. It's such a shame because these little treats are absolutely incredible! They're easy to whip up but look as if they take an absolute age. 

#GBBOGlutenFree Gluten Free Portuguese Egg Custard Tarts
A note on the texture: they've got the feel of crème brûlée! Infact, that's essentially what these tarts are: mini crème brûlée in a flaky pastry crust. There's nothing to worry about, just whip up a custard base like for homemade ice cream and you're all set to go! I've stuck with the traditional approach and added in a pinch of cinnamon and made mine out of puff pastry as they'd do in Portugal. But you could use shortcrust pastry if you can't find ready made gluten free puff. 

Rows of gluten free egg custard tarts

Now, the contestants on Great British Bake Off made their own puff pastry from scratch, which you can certainly do yourself, but be warned, making gluten free puff is crazy enough to drive you insane. Even the shop bought gluten free puff pastry can be difficult to handle!

Y'all. Lava cakes or molten cakes are absolutely amazing and they're often the star of the dessert menu at restaruants and you know what? They are incredibly easy to make! You'll especially love these as there's not too much sugar, and they're gluten free and dairy free-oh yeah!

#GBBOGlutenFree Gluten Free Chocolate Lava Sponge Cake | Anyonita Nibbles

Lava cakes are the most dramatic cakes -- you cut into it and they ooze rivers of hot molten chocolate like lava. The trickest thing is making sure you delicately remove them from the baking molds because the slightest knick and they'll gush too soon, ruining the dramatic moment. I served ours with a dusting of icing/confectioner's sugar and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but these are yummy with fresh fruit or custard or whipped cream, too.

Gluten Free Molten Chocolate Cake

Oh and you know what? You can totally make these the day before a big party or event! All you need todo is make them as the recipe states. After they have cooled for 10 minutes, wrap them in plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate. Then, when you are ready to serve, remove the cakes from the ramekins or molds and onto a plate and microwave for about 30 seconds - watch it carefully, too long and they'll start to ooze!

Gluten Free Millionaire's Shortbread

So this week, I'm cheating. Last week's technical challenge was stroopwafel--super thin Dutch pancakes that require a special waffle press that I could have bagged from Amazon for £25 but didn't think I'd be likely to use it again, so I decided to skip the stroopwafels and opted instead for last week's signature: Millionaire's Shortbread!

#GBBOGlutenFree Millionaires Shortbread Recipe

Millionaire's Shortbread is a classic British treat -- chunky pieces of shortbread biscuits/cookies slathered with caramel and topped with a thin slab of chocolate. They're kind of like Twix candy bars, actually, except the chocolate is tempered and finishes with a crisp snap instead of a soft bite like on a Twix. They're surprisingly easy to make and they make for a great impressive dessert!

As soon as the weather turns chilly, the slow cooker resumes its autumn and winter home atop my kitchen counter.

Now ordinarily chicken cacciatore has olives in it, but this one doesn't because I don't like olives, but if you like them, add them in! And while we're on the subject, if there are things you don't like, feel free to leave them out or swap them--the choice is yours. You've gotta eat it; you should be in control of what goes in it.

This time of year all I need is my favourite autumn accessory: a pumpkin spice latte. I hear you laughing, "A drink as an accessory?!" Believe me; with as often as I've got a homemade latte clutched in my hands, it certainly is an accessory! This pumpkin spice latte is different, though, it's completely lactose free--from the frothy milk inside to the crown of whipped cream on top. And I'm warning you: it's pretty much life.

Lactose Free Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Homemade Latte

Oh and one more thing before we get to the ingredients list, don't be tied down by my measurements. Everybody likes their coffee differently. Use as much sugar as you like or no sugar. Make it a triple espresso if want it stronger or even opt for decaf coffee instead. Your brew; your rules!

There's a running joke amongst coeliacs and it's this: gluten free bread. Okay, so maybe it's not that bad but gluten free bread 9 times out of 10 leaves something (a lot of something, in fact) to be desired. Gluten is what makes normal bread lovely and stretchy and indulgent and nice to eat. Take that away you're mostly left with pale rocks masquerading as bread. Still, even with the general challenge gluten free breadmaking poses, I was excited for this week's technical challenge in the #GBBOGlutenFree bake along!

It seems the weather has suddenly turned frigid here in Manchester! I've swapped ballerina pumps for suede ankle boots and can't dare leave the house without a wrap or a throw. The leaves are changing on the trees and my Instagram feed (come join me on Instagram & get your fill of gluten free food porn) is overrun with snaps of pumpkin spice lattes. And even though fall doesn't officially kick off until Friday, I've begun to indulge in it just a little bit early this year.

9 Hour Slowcooker Gluten Free American Chili

Autumn was made for hearty meals that cook themselves, leaving you plenty of time to watch the leaves change and curl up with a hot drink. And nothing says autumn in the American south quite like a bowl of hearty chilli, bursting with beans and packed with meat--this is a protein hit that you'll want to indulge in time and time again. Your family will absolutely love this easy gluten free American chilli recipe. Serve it up southwest style with crunchy tortilla chips for dipping and then use the leftovers to fill fluffy baked potatoes the day after; you'll get two meals from the effort of one!

I love a good fortune cookie, and I'm a total fortune cookie purist: none of those crazy flavours for me, and I want my fortune to be an actual fortune, not just halfhearted advice. Although I've always loved these Chinese takeaway delicacies, I never thought to try making them, so I was both excited and a bit apprehensive when I saw this year's Great British Bake Off contestants try their hand at these bent biscuits.

#GBBOGlutenFree Chinese Fortune Cookies Recipe

These gluten free fortune cookies aren't 100% like normal fortune cookies and that has a lot to do with the flour. As written, this recipe yields a dozen fortune cookies with the texture of shortbread and they're absolutely delicious! Plus, they're so quick and easy to whip up, you'll want to make them every time you opt for a Chinese takeaway!

10 Restaurants with Options for Gluten Free in Liverpool, Merseyside and the Wirral

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Considering a meal out in Liverpool? Here are 10 restaurants with options for gluten free diners in Liverpool, Merseyside and on the Wirral.
10 Gluten Free Restaurants in Liverpool, Merseyside and on the Wirral

Liverpool, Merseyside and the Wirral are quickly becoming must-visit destinations for anyone following a gluten free diet. The number of restaurants, cafes and tea rooms offering up suitable options for coeliacs is pretty impressive! You've got the whole gamut in this part of the world: vegetarian cafes with a consciousness about gluten free food, tea rooms serving up award winning gluten free cakes made by a chef with a gluten intolerance and mainstream restaurants partnering with Coeliac UK to ensure their wares are legitimately safe for coeliacs.

Liverpool, with its rich culture and natural tourist trap is showing the country just what it looks like to be coeliac friendly and it's totally winning the game. If you're planning a day out with the Scousers, plug these pit stops into your itinerary for delicious, gluten free food.

Disclosure: restaurants change their recipes, menus and preparation areas at any time and may no longer provide gluten free options. As always, please use this list as a guide and consult with the restaurant before booking or attending as to what their policy is. Finally, please remember that while they may offer a gluten free menu, if the kitchen is not wholly gluten free or if there is no designated area, cross contamination could still occur.

Growing up, my favourite snack cakes were oatmeal cream pies and Swiss rolls--twin mini chocolate roulades filled with sweetened cream and covered in a chocolate glaze. They were divine. And of course not gluten or dairy free. So when I saw last week's technical in the new Great British Bake Off, I was super excited to try my hand at mini Swiss rolls.

 Gluten Free Dairy Free Mini Swiss Rolls

Luckily, roulades are often already gluten free because they don't call for usual flour, so making it dairy free and tszujing it up a bit wasn't too tricky. Hiding inside these mini roulades is just the right amount of espresso powder for added zing.

Gluten Free Halloween UK Sweets and US Candy Lists

Friday, September 1, 2017

Here are the latest lists of gluten free UK Halloween sweets and US Halloween candy from each country's most popular brands in a handy free printable!


When I first emigrated to the UK, Halloween was just beginning to take off as a recognised commercial celebration. While there's still a long way to go before it's celebrated as extensively here as it is in America, it's certainly a nice way to break up the dark nights before proper winter sets in! 

Of course, a holiday where eating is a big part of the focus poses potential risks for people with food allergies. Given the nature of how Halloween candy is often given (in small, individually wrapped sweets or candy from a larger package) it can be difficult to remember if a sweet is gluten free or not. To combat this and to ensure you and your children have the best possible gluten free Halloween ever, I've created two handy lists of Gluten Free Halloween UK Sweets and US Candy and Chocolate from major suppliers and the most popular brands in each country.

Be Advised:

Please use these lists as guides only--ingredients, recipes and production methods can change at any time. In all cases, I have only included those products which the brands and or manufacturers have stated as clearly being free from gluten. This means they contain no barley, rye or wheat or they contain less than 20ppm gluten level and are therefore deemed to be safe. None of the listed products are produced in a factory which handles gluten products, so there should be minimal fear of cross contamination. Please also be aware that you download the correct list for your country as some sweets or candy produced gluten free in one country may not be gluten free in the other. Ultimately, always check the packaging and ingredients before consuming any sweets or candy, even if it does appear on this list.

Tips for Gluten Free Kids at School

Thursday, August 31, 2017

From letters to the teacher and clever ways to remind your child about their food intolerance, here's everything you need to know about surviving the school day with a gluten free child.

Tips for Gluten Free Kids at School

We worry about our kids practically every waking moment of the day, especially when they spend so much of that day away from us at school. We worry that they'll not make friends or that they'll get bullied or that they'll feel frightened. When you're the parent of a child with a food allergy or intolerance, you worry even more: will they eat something they shouldn't? Will they have an allergic reaction? The list goes on and on. While nothing will make you stop worrying about your child, here are some useful tips you can employ to keep your gluten free child safe at school. Many of these ideas will also work for children with other allergies or intolerances, too.

How to Inform Your Child's School about their Food Allergy

There's no need to feel daunted about back-to-school if you're the parent of a food allergy kid. Read on for practical advice, tips and a sample letter you can send to your child's head teacher/principal or classroom teacher to ensure everyone is up to speed about your child's special dietary needs.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Back to School Biscuits

As a child, back-to-school was my absolute favourite time of year! I'd love to instill that sense of excitement and passion for learning in my son and what better way to encourage it than with a little bit of cookie bribery?! As I mentioned on my roundup of versatile gluten free cookie recipes, cookies make everything better when you're a kid. And these cookies are guaranteed to brighten your kids day--slip them in their lunchbox or have them ready for them when they come home. I chose the phrase Back 2 School and decided to do the other half of the cookies stamped with Year 1 as my son will be in First Grade or Year 1 as it's called here in the UK.

How to make gluten free and dairy free shortbread biscuits

Of course, they're gluten free, but they're dairy free too! And they are the nicest, softest, crumbliest biscuits you'll ever eat. That's a promise. I love how quickly this cookie dough comes together and I have to admit to having pinched a few nibbles before it was baked! Also, the lovely folks at Red Candy set me up with my own custom cookie stamp to try out and I'll be giving one away to one incredibly lucky reader too!

10 Restaurants with Options for Gluten Free in Manchester

I'm going to let you in on a little secret about my UK home city: Manchester is a complete and total bad ass when it comes to food. We absolutely love to eat and although we have a roster of Michelin starred chefs and no actual Michelin starred restaurants (pure conspiracy, if you ask me!) we still know how to throw down in the kitchen! So if you're coeliac or just following a gluten free diet, you'll be pleased to know there are plenty of restaurants where you can eat gluten free in Manchester!

Gluten Free Back to School Dinners

Right hand in the air, I've been counting down the days until school starts and it's very soon! The start of the school year is always an emotional and very busy time. There's the fact that your child is getting older that slaps you in the face and all the emotions that come with it. Plus, the preparation, the endless buying of supplies and uniforms, orchestrating drop off and collection, slotting in homework time and generally getting back into your routine all take so much effort.

Usually, it's a few weeks before we feel settled into the routine again, so having easy options for dinners that won't have me chained to the stove make the transition even better. Luckily, the gluten free blogging community has about a bajillion quick and delicious gluten free dinner options!

To make it even easier for you, I've rounded up 22 gluten free back to school dinners--quick meals that are easy to prepare, nutritionally sound and pretty freaking delicious! Slot these into your meal plan and you'll have one less thing to worry about that first month back-to-school!

A few weeks ago, I felt a cold coming on. One of those horrible summer colds that are always a pain to get over, so I reached for my superfoods and nipped it in the bud. Superfoods are nature's remedies for ailments like a common cold and this salad is filled to the brim with them! From the crunchy bed of spinach, red cabbage and carrot to the fresh wild salmon and the garlic and honey in the sauce--it is Superfood Central!

Chilli peppers--or flakes, in this case--are great for colds, but you know what else is? Garlic. It's why it's one of the prominent ingredients in my mucus buster cold and flu home remedy, perfect for when you haven't managed to ward the cold off and are suffering from a blocked up or a runny nose! This salmon dish is a lot more pleasant than that drink and still achieves the same benefits and more.
