52 Week Allergy Free Recipe Challenge

I've been toying with the idea of setting myself a recipe challenge for a while.  Now with the new year here, I've decided to jump in with both size 6s and see where it takes me.

The Wee Man pretty much eats the same food on a rota system.  I tend to stick to the things I know he's safe to eat and prepare them the way I have done for the past four years.  So to expand his and my repertoire I'm setting myself a challenge to try out one new recipe/ food product each week.

The rules I've set myself are:
  1. Each recipe will be free from wheat, dairy, egg, soya, nuts, beef, citrus, berries, gelatine and chestnut mushrooms.   
  2. By "food product" I mean shop bought mixes e.g. bread mix, gravy mixes.  There are a lot of products out there that should be ok for the Wee Man to eat but I tend to  steer clear of them for fear of the unknown.  There are usually a lot of mystery ingredients in them whose origins can only be found with an extensive google search.  
  3. I will try something new each week and post about it
  4. Sometimes life will get in the way of my Challenge so if I ever do miss a week or two then I have to make up for it in the following weeks.  So if I miss a week then the following week I need to do two recipes. 
I think that about covers it.  If anyone wants to join in please do.  I would love to get ideas and recipes from other allergy cooks.  Just write a comment and I can visit your blog.  I think it's such a minefield out there and any help and support is always welcome.
