Recipe // Dairy and Soya Free Iced Biscuits

When H-Bear was initially diagnosed with Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA) and a soya allergy at five(ish) months old, one of my first worries was “What on earth are we going to feed him?!” But as the months have gone by, it’s become much easier to find suitable recipes – or adapt the unsuitable! Yesterday we decided to bake some biscuits. I’ve been wanting to try my hand at H-Bear friendly biscuits for a while… I’ve got the dairy and soya  ...

Recipe // Dairy & Soya-Free Victoria Sandwich Cake

With H-Bear suffering from Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA), and also a soya allergy, finding sweet treats that he can eat can be a challenge.

The book is split into nine chapters:

Recipe // Christmas Eve Stew

“This stew is not just for Christmas Eve – in fact, it should be enjoyed on a weekly basis throughout Winter in my opinion.” – Hannah Winter is one of my favourite times to cook. All the best dishes are big, warming hearty pies and stews which appeal to my Northern roots. This recipe is originally from my Mum’s friend and traditionally in our house we have it on Christmas Eve. It fills the house with a lovely aroma that, for me, just sets the tone for  ...
