Keswick (Lake District)

This summer we embraced the staycation and headed to the Lake District for a few days, choosing to stay in Keswick. Despite this beautiful part of the world being just a couple of hours away from home, I still needed to make sure that I could eat safely whilst I was there. After all, nobody […]

Chilli con Carne

This is a really simple recipe which can easily be scaled up or down according to how many portions you want to make. The quantities below make approx 8 portions and I freeze the spares for an easy meal at a later date. Ingredients 500g beef mince 2 onions, chopped 2 teaspoons chilli powder (adjust […]

Baking Cakes

Banana Muffins

These muffins are quick and easy to make. They’re also a great way of using up over-ripe bananas.

From the moment you sit down, 107 Dining Room is ahead on points because they have a full gluten free menu, separate from the gluten-containing menu. So you don’t […]

Asda’s Cookies & Cream biscuits

I spotted these biscuits in Asda and thought I’d give them a try. It’s so rare to see filled gluten free biscuits I was excited to taste these. They cost £1.30 for 8 biscuits so, whilst not exactly cheap, they’re much better value than other biscuits such as Schar. The outer packaging is bright and […]
