It has been a very busy month again for me lately so far. If you haven’t seen my blog posts over April and May, I was placed on furlough over these months after being advised to shield by the Government in response to Covid-19 (owing to my asthma). I went back to work in June but on a restricted rota to help reduce my risk to the virus.

This month, I started back up full time, and let me tell you, it has been amazing but exhausting too. I come home drained and tired and all I want to do is enjoy a sweet treat, anyone else feel the same?

Working full time during the week, means I am using the weekends to enjoy the summer. To me, summer weather means strawberries and cream, time out in the garden and Eton Mess. Anyone else feel the same? I love the sweet taste of a meringue with my strawberries and cream and have been loving making my own for when I can’t get to the shops.

If you haven’t seen already, I have a newsletter! Please subscribe to it if you haven’t already. I send a newsletter out on the first Monday of every month where I share my highlights of the month, a hint into next months blog posts and tips and tricks to help you living with an allergy free life.

I also sometimes share my favourite recipes months ahead of it arriving on my blog. In my April 2020 newsletter, I shared my meringue recipe and everyone seemed to enjoy it so today I am sharing it here.

Meringues have such a bad reputation and many of my friends were surprised at just how easy they were ot make. They are naturally gluten and dairy free and you only need 4 ingredients to make the best vanilla meringues.

These meringues are home made and so do not come out the glorious bright white of the meringues in the supermarket. If you want that bright white shine, I recommend adding white food gel colouring (gluten and dairy free of course) when you add the vanilla.

I hope you all enjoy. Please let me know in the comments and tag me on Instagram using #livingcoeliac if you re-create it. I am off to crush meringue in my strawberries and cream and enjoy the evening sunshine. Chrissi -x-
