I’d love your recipes

Well in a week or so I’m taking a little blogging break, just one week. I never take a break from blogging or my computer but retro daddy has a few weeks off work and is insisting that I switch off too. Well I’ll still be on instagram, can’t give up everything. We’re taking elodie on her first plane trip and the big kids on their second so excitement levels are high in the house and there is lots of do as the day after we get back…………….we’re ripping out the kitchen. No major event or anything!

Anyway I had this great idea that if I had a few recipes from my lovely readers up on the blog then there would still be something new up on the blog every day and we’d all learn something new and I wouldn’t feel so bad that my blog had nothing new up on it. And I wouldn’t be rushing around trying to write blog posts before I went.

And then since I’m really giving the gluten and dairy free diet a go I decided what if I asked for your recipes that you make for people with a special diet so it could be wheat free, dairy free, sugar free, meat free, totally vegan, no sugar …whatever. Just something that you love and think is a winner.

So send me a recipe, email it to me (retromummy@hotmail.com) before next friday, it needs a photo (or two) to go with it, step by step instructions that I can copy and paste into my recipe card, your name and a few lines about you and your family. Go on, why don’t you send me a photo of you too.

I’ll pick at least 10 and start sharing them from next friday………………………….get recipe writing…………………………….I’m excited to see what you’ve got and if you have any questions just ask.

    Dear Retromummy,

    Here is one I would like to suggest. I worked a long time to try to recreate this recipe which I tasted in Tahiti and thought it would be very suitable to the Thermomix. It’s easy and healthy.

    Best wishes for your blogging break. A change is as good as a holiday.

  2. Hi Corrie…I am gluten free and have a food blog so you might like to check that out sometime. Enjoy your time out and how exciting about the kitchen! Dzintra

  3. Hi Corrie, that sounds fabulous! I’ll see what I can find.
    I have a bit of a problem you may be able to help me with: you posted a recipe (a few months ago, maybe?) for a chickpea, broccoli soup, with rosemary. It was delicious! The whole family loved it and I wanted to make it again but no matter what I search for I can’t find the recipe. Any ideas? Thanks so much and enjoy your well earned break!

  4. Hi Corrie, this is such a fantastic idea.. my 3 nieces and nephews from one family are all allergic and anaphylactic to either nuts or dairy..plus allergic to fish and eggs. Recently the little one has been in hospital 3 times from attacks as my brother and sister in law have only just discovered he is anaphylactic – it was terrible! And because I love them dearly I have been on a mission to find suitable recipes for them all to try and have fun with – I don’t have photos with them as I live in a different state so I won’t be able to submit anything but I just wanted to say this is a great idea.. we need to raise more awareness around food allergies! Have a great holiday x

  5. A current fab in our house is black bean brownies. I uses combo recipe (my bodged together mix of a couple f ones I’ve read)
    I make mine in the thermo.

    1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
    2 eggs
    3 tbsp vegetable oil or butter if you’re not dairy free. Or coconut oil if you fancy it.
    ½ cup soft brown sugar (or raw, or coconut sugar)
    ¼ cup coco powder
    1 tsp baking powder
    A couple of tsp of LSA
    dash if vanilla paste
    Semi-sweet chocolate chips for topping (optional)

    Occasioonally I also chuck in a table spoon of Nutella as well. Just because. You can also add blueberries, nuts etc.

    Enjoy your break, you deserve it!

  6. Hi Corrie,
