“Free From Lots” Crackers – Sweet or savoury

“Free From Lots” Crackers – Sweet or savoury

It was just a regular day, I was going about my business getting some work done and then I remembered that nut free snacks for my son needed to be made, for him to take to kindy. We're gluten free, so I always send him with stuff for morning / arvo tea, to avoid vacuous 'gluten free' biscuits and crackers than are basically starch and provide virtually no nutrients - not what a little body needs! I didn't want to make another sweet thing and was keen to come up with a savoury snack that could … [Read more...]

Lemony coconut custard

Lemony coconut custard

I love adding lemon zest to a dairy free, coconut custard. It cuts the richness of the coconut and makes is delicious and fresh. We've had to cut all dairy, including raw milk and butter out of the little man's diet at the moment, healing his gut after finding a tricky parasite, so while we weren't huge dairy eaters already, unless you count the odd farmhouse cheese, but it's funny how cutting the butter and odd bit of raw milk out has swung me into withdrawal symptoms.
