So it’s Easter Weekend…

Easter is a bit different for us, in a household where the children are dairy-free, egg-free and nut-free. All my children’s friends are overdosing on milk chocolate eggs, and decorating the shells of ‘blown’ eggs (a definite no-no, can you imagine the egg-allergic child trying to get the insides out of an egg and then painting it – it would be an absolute recipe for disaster!). Any organised egg hunt involves milk chocolate mini-eggs tossed around at random, or perhaps a trade for a creme egg/kinder egg at the end of the hunt. Not very suitable for us. It really is a time of year to look different if you don’t eat dairy!

In the past I’ve given Whizzers mini-eggs (a great alternative) and perhaps a little cuddly rabbit/chick/lamb. Problem is, those Whizzers mini-eggs have sold out this year and we’re kinda over-run with cuddly toys so one more seems a step too far! Also, I’ve had to pass over the dairy-free Easter eggs I previously bought to both Grandmothers….

So, this year our girls will get a Sweet William Chocolate Bunny each, a lemon flavoured sugar chick from the Vegan Store (so cute) and a Moshi Monsters surprise Easter egg.

Next year, I think I’ll make the chocolate eggs, then maybe I can make something slightly similar to a Kinder egg…..

All recipes featured here are dairy, egg, and nut-free, thus 'accidentally' vegan, as my children are allergic to those. My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes. All the recipes posted (unless stated) are my own creations.
