Great British Beef Week (23rd April until 1st May) is being celebrated and we have been cooking dairy free beef mini roast with mustard butter and seasonal vegetables to mark the occasion. We love good quality, versatile, farm assured British beef and mini roasts are always the perfect size for an easy, yet nutritious meal any day of the week.
This dairy free and egg free pasta sauce recipe has been a favourite of mine since I was about 18 years old. When I first left home, pasta became a huge part of my diet. From making spaghetti bolognaise to my favourite pasta and sauce dishes, I have continued to make many pasta dishes over the years. I was asked to write about this dish as a part of the Belling’s Cooking in Style campaign. You can find more wonderful recipes by searching for the hashtag #GoodLookingCooking on social media.
I’ve always dreamed of having one of the Belling range ovens to enable me to create new dishes. I love that these come in different colours too.
The Problem with Pre-made Pasta Sauces
After finally figuring out that I had some food intolerances, I realised that many of the pasta sauces I was using actually contained some of the foods I was intolerant to. I can’t have cows’ milk (unless it is a2 milk), eggs, bell peppers or chilli peppers (including paprika). It is very difficult to find pasta sauces that don’t contain these foods.
As a result, I have spent some time devising my own pasta sauce recipes that are just as quick and easy as the store bought sauces.
After spending time picking up fallen apples from my Gran’s apple tree, we blanched some then made this delicious apple pie recipe. This recipe has always been made by Gran and Mum so I am carrying on the tradition by making it for my children. They both really enjoy tasting this recipe.
It is that wonderful time of year again, where collecting fallen apples and making apple pie is a must. My son absolutely loves apple pies, especially when we have been able to collect the fallen apples from his Great Gran’s apple tree. Here is how to blanch apples. My Mum has been doing it this way, for what seems like, forever.
