At last, here is a suite of desserts worth shouting about!
If you’ve longed for something rich and creamy, these will hit the spot. Gone are the years of dessert envy. Now you too can luxuriate at dessert time by devouring these divine pots of glorious creaminess, tempered with tangy fruit compote. Allow me to introduce […]
It’s been a while since a new “yoghurt” appeared on the scene…and just like buses, now there are four. Alpro have brought us the new flavours and they’re all good!
Alpro Lemon and Lime
This one was the first new kid on the block…and for me it’s an absolute star. The zingy lemon and lime come through […]
Well, it’s been months since I had a moment to update the site. (I was asked to do some supply work to help a local school in a spot of difficulty and I don’t need to tell anyone who’s ever taught how the job seems to expand into the time available!) Since then, we’ve been […]
If you’re lactose intolerant, as opposed to casein allergic, this is fabulous stuff and it has finally returned to the Waitrose near me. My kids love it and have been bitterly disappointed that I haven’t been able to get it for about a year. If you too love it, maybe your nearest Waitrose would be […]
Well, here we go again! I don’t know why I bother hoping that TV programmes will do dairy-free cooking properly. This time it’s The Great British Bake Off that’s been a disappointment.
Of course. How could we ever think of baking anything else? Sponges light as a feather? How could we be so unreasonable?
Well, I’m […]
This proved quite a challenge! Leominster is an attractive little town with lots of old-style small shops: an ideal recipe for finding a choice of appealing alternatives for lunch you would think … wrong! To our amazement, it appeared not to have one restaurant open at lunchtime in the main town, and we walked round […]
Well, it’s been a while! Life gallops past and suddenly it should be summer. It isn’t, of course; just differently branded autumn as usual. However, we still have to eat … and wash up. Which brings me to my latest thought for sharing. This has to rank as one of the oddest places to find […]
The large Tesco I use has Pure spread on special offer at 2 boxes for £2. This makes it 25p a box cheaper than Tesco’s own at the moment. Mind you, experience says Pure will be putting their prices up yet again once the offer is over. Usually it’s a few weeks at 2 for […]
These have to be the most delicious commercial dairy-free chocolates I’ve come across. Choices make a caramel-filled chocolates which Sainsbury’s sell. I haven’t found them anywhere else in this country, though they may be available in stores in Ireland where they’re made by a company called Celtic Chocolates.
The chocolates aren’t cheap at £3.99 a packet, […]
Once again, Sainsbury’s have brought out their own brand easter eggs for their FreeFrom range. These eggs are large, prettily wrapped in spring-like daffodil yellow cellophane and have no box. They’re really a grown-up egg, rather than a kids’ one and are made from dark chocolate with a good flavour and definite “mouth appeal”! At […]
