I believe we are what we eat. With this in mind I cook all my food from scratch where possible, and use the best ingredients to ensure the outcome is a balanced and nutritious meal. I also believe in simple is good and very rarely produce food that has taken hours to prepare.
All the food I eat is gluten-free and fructose free / minimum fructose. I do however create snacks and occasional treats / cakes/ indulgences for my family.
In this blog, I share what we eat. Come on in and look around.
(Gluten free flour in any of my recipes can be replaced with non gluten-free flour)
You can also see many examples of the food and dishes eaten in my house on instagram @jfb50
All of my food is cooked in /on my Aga. With this in mind some adjustment to length of time for cooking may need to take place for conventional ovens.
