When things go wrong – eating out when free-from

Eating out with allergies and dietary issues can be a bit of a minefield. Even when a restaurant offers a menu,  the wait staff or kitchens may not fully understand either what you’re saying or why you are saying it.

Hearty Italian Chicken Soup

I’ve made this soup so many times this year, often when we’ve had guests for a light lunch or supper. It’s super easy to put together and really comforting. I often make it after I’ve made a poached chicken (recipe here), it’s easy to use the thigh or leg meat which we’re not as fond…

Tebay Services – A Free From Adventure!

We recently came back from holiday to here that my grandad has taken very ill. Due to the ‘Beast From The East’ mkII and the urgent need to get up to see him we had to drive instead of my usual flight from Bristol to Glasgow. The drive both directions was long and arduous due…
