Welcome all, fill your tum with my num num nums.

Gluten, Dairy & Legume free recipes; some by design, others are just nice recipes that happen to be! There are recipes and also shopping 'finds', all of which are good for free from people and all yummy whether you are following a particular diet or not! Just because something is 'free from' doesn't mean everyone can't enjoy it - and you may be surpised at how much happier your body is.

'Special' is how my friends describe my food and me, I don't think it's entirely complimentary!

Katsu Chicken

I'm getting better at the pictures malarky, though the crispy chicken bits could be browner! A tasty dish which is easier than it looks, though getting prepared before you start (unlike me!) makes it easier. Serves 2.

1/2 tsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds
