Recipes for Emma is pretty much ‘exactly what it says on the tin’ – recipes… you guessed it… for me (whoopie!)
After a conversation about the huge list of foods I’m intolerant to, a fellow google plusser (shout out to Gill Andrews) suggested putting a call out to all cooks, bloggers and alike to find some tasty meals that I could prepare without having to search the World Wide Web (which can be really difficult when there are so many foods that I am intolerant to). I sent a list of all the foods that I can and can’t eat to Gill who created a short post describing my predicament and kindly spread the word. To help filter posts out on google, Gill hash tagged it ‘recipes for Emma’ – to check out the original post on google plus click here.
The response was pretty damn amazing and I’ve slowly been working my way through them ever since. Over the new few weeks I will be posting the recipes that are my favourite, with any slight adaptions I have made, photos and links to blogs they are from.
I have to say a HUGE thank you Gill Andrews who took time out of her hectic schedule to pull all this together. I also want to thank everyone who took the time to respond and sent recipes. It may sound like a simple task, but scrolling through recipe after recipe, trying to find one that is compatible (or easily tweaked) is no mean feat!

Just a few months after I began trying the recipes that I had recieved through #RecipesForEmma, my specialist tweaked my diet even further – putting me on whats known as a ketogenic diet. In addition to this I suffered from an additional number of symptoms with my health, which meant I had to tweak my diet even further (nightmare!). As a result I am still (yes, STILL) working my way through the list of recipes that I was given. As I work my way through them, I will be posting photos and posts on my Google+ page so that I can share my experiences with those who nominated recipes – check out my Google+ profile here to findout more.
