Hever Castle

A grand day out. What a lovely Sunday with the family. We’ve been getting a bit frustrated the last few weekends. Storm Ciara, Storm Dennis and another weekend of wind, rain and generally miserable weather have seen us truly test our list of ‘101 things to do on a rainy day’. Ironically we’ve set ourselves…

Vegan Cheese

I make no apologies for this but I’ve only gone and done another one… Free From Humour now has its second episode! Alan and I made the (frankly foolish) decision to review vegan cheeses. Lets be straight here: I can’t stand cheese and Alan hasn’t had real cheese for 15-odd years! We are the least…

Beautiful Italy

Piglet has been invited to a pizza making birthday party. Yep, that’s right… Little Piglet who only yesterday was a baby I used to rock to sleep in my arms is now getting invited to birthday parties. And not any old birthday parties; ones that involve making pizza! The location of this party is Beautiful…

Organix

Shock horror! An Allergen Dad blog post about kid’s food – specifically those without certain allergens! It’s almost as if I’ve remembered what this blog was originally intended to do… We’ve been buying Organix products for years now. They’re pretty common place in most supermarkets – increasingly taking up a significant part of the colourful…

New Year

Happy New Year to you all! It’s here – the 2020s! It seems like only yesterday we entered this millennium. I remember that very fondly; drinking Champagne (possibly for the first time) on a hill overlooking the fireworks in Central London. This New Year’s was a little bit, um, different… At home, trying to learn…

Vegan Explosion

No, this isn’t the joke about an explosion in a milk-free cheese factory (“de brie” everywhere)… 2020 looks like it’s set to be the year of the vegan. Coffee shops and restaurants seem to be stumbling over themselves to roll out vegan menus for Spring. KFC have launched a vegan mycoprotein ‘chicken’ burger; Gregg’s have…

Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas to all of you, whether you’re somebody looking for allergy support, a Google searcher interested in suitable foods and restaurants, a friend (new or old) who reads this purely for the cutting edge humour and incredible modesty, or even one of the automated bots that seems to routinely hit the ‘vegan magnum’ page…

Vegan Panettone

As I mentioned in my previous post (NOMO), every year there are new dairy-free Christmas options to try. In fact, I’d say that the number of new options each year is increasing. There certainly seems to be notable increase on the back of the vegan movement. Unfortunately vegan and milk-free don’t always go as hand-in-hand…
