I spent 2 weeks on the Costa Teguise, Lanzarote in August 2019 and found it to be really, really easy to eat well gluten free there. I speak good Spanish, which obviously helped, but the vast majority of restaurants had at least 1 person who spoke good English. I doubt it would be much more […]
107 Dining Room, Heswall, Wirral, CH60 0AF I love eating here and never fail to be impressed by their outstanding gluten free menu and knowledgeable staff. 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 […]
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 […]

Choosing a restaurant used to be a pleasure, scrolling through menu after menu on the websites of literally any restaurant I fancied. Since going gluten free, it has become significantly more of a challenge. Meals out need to be carefully researched, menus checked, reviews scrutinised. Inevitably I feel like I’m inconveniencing friends and family by […]
It has been a while since I last posted on here but my Mum’s birthday, today, was a great opportunity to get baking again. (The diet is on hold!) Last night we went out for a meal and found a restaurant really putting others to shame when it comes to gluten free.Their gluten free menu […]

Today marks the start of Coeliac Awareness Week 2017 and I’m helping Coeliac UK to spread the word. I read this article in the Huffington Post today and thought I’d share it. Please share it again if you’re interested in supporting us. Thanks. http://m.huffpost.com/uk/entry/16425668
When I was diagnosed with coeliac disease I thought my days of enjoying Simnel Cake were over. This recipe works a treat though and it’s very easy to make. Happy Easter everyone!
