Chunky Vegetable & Bean Stew GF SCD

This week my daughter made a wonderful bean stew that's perfect for the blustery, cold and wet weather we're experiencing at the moment. Made with a selection of nourishing, sweet, seasonal root vegetables, this stew is very delicately spiced and yet very warming.  There's nothing more satisfying than stews and soups in the Winter months.

Grain Free Orange & Sultana Cake GF SCD

I love fruit cakes and this cake is almost guilt free since it derives its sweetness from natural, unrefined sources. The almonds provide a nutritious boost to the cake making it ideal for breakfast, snacking and afternoon tea.

Courgettes or Zucchini - a round-up of recipes

Courgettes or zucchini to my friends across the pond, have only really become popular in the UK over the past ten years.  The first time I discovered them though was about twenty years ago when a French teenager came to stay for a few weeks one Summer, he sliced a couple and fried them in a pan, YUM!!!!
