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!

French Toast with Maple Syrup & Strawberries

Not exactly a ground breaking recipe but life is better with French Toast!
The strawberries & maple syrup are fairly self explanatory - but always try & get the best maple syrup you can, your taste buds will thank you for the few extra quid spent! Blueberries work really well with this too, or if you are feeling naughty some really crispy streaky bacon. Bacon & maple syrup are one of those American combos that sound mental but it is a revelation & once you've tried it you will wonder how you lived without it!
The French Toast is something I've tried out different ingredients for but the mixture stays basically the same:
3 slices of gf bread (equal to 1.5 slices of standard bread coz they tend to be small! I find Genius works best but others are ok too!)
1 xl or 2 s eggs
2-3 tbsp milk (rice works well, but the newly discovered Kara works great!)
Pinch of salt
Put a frying pan on a medium heat with a little oil or Df spread. In a wide, shallow bowl mix together the milk, egg/s & salt. You want to break the egg/s up but they don't need to be whisked! Dip both sides of the bread slices in the mixture, so they are well coated & semi saturated - don't let them soak too long though, gf bread tends to break up easily if it gets soggy! Fry on both sides until they are golden brown. While they are frying prepare the fruit & serve the toast with maple syrup poured over. I tend to drown them but to your taste!
