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!

Whoopie Pies

The recipe for these will follow shortly, but they are going down a storm at work! They are traditionally made with vegetable shortning rather than butter so were dairy free to start with just the gluten side to work on. There are a number of gluten free recipes online but they are too complicated or contain hard to get flours. Just waiting on a delivery of marshmallow fluff (major ingredient of the filling) and another batch should perfect things!

Apparently Amish mums would put these in their kids lunch boxes and the kids would cry 'whoopie' when they found them, hence the name! The use of fluff in the filling (rather than egg whites) makes them New England rather than Amish Whoopie Pies apparently!
