Breads & Baking

I went gluten-free in early 2015 so the recipes before that do contain gluten. You can find a fairly traditional recipe for brown soda bread as well as some great wholemeal vegan scones. This section also includes cakes and cookies.


Sauces & Dips

Savoury Dishes

Making the mushroom-tomato sauce This is where I put all dishes that don’t fit straight into the other categories. It includes breakfast, dinner and lunch recipes. My goal for 2016 is to include a new breakfast and dinner recipe each month because Soups & Salads are such obvious lunch choices. Though a bit more salad-for-dinner certainly wouldn’t hurt.

Soups & Salads

Soup with salad and a scone

I put soups and salads together into the one category as this was intended to be my lunch menu. I pretty happy with some of the soup recipes I have but there is a bit of a lack of salads on the site at the moment. Need to add some more salads – get some good crunchy veg for my teeth to munch on.

Sweet Treats

Most of the recipes here also feature in the Breads & Baking category because so far most of the are  baked treats. I don’t have very many vegan treat so far – which is something I’d like to change in 2016 because I imagine vegan treats are generally very low in saturated fat and so are quite heart healthy.
