Shopping Tips - Easter Egg Special

With the school holidays starting tomorrow I suppose I’d better face up to the fact that Easter is about 10 days away or so. I won’t be buying loads of chocolate eggs, but there are a few to be picked up. The last thing I want to do is spend a fortune on…

New Recipe: Raspberry Curd

What is curd? Sweet curd is made with 4 main ingredients. 3 of which are always butter, sugar, and eggs. The 4th ingredient is normally a tart or citrus flavour. Once made properly it sets to a dropping consistency. This is because both the butter and the…

Irish Stew - the traditional way. #IrishFood #Recipe #Wholesome

When I was doing up my meal plan this week I realised that sometimes I neglect to share the older recipes; the ones that have been in my family for generations. Irish stew is one of those dishes that I see on the menus of restaurants on the tourist trail…
Irish stew is hearty, made with a few simple (and frugal) ingredients; it is a perfect bowl of comfort food. It's warming, nutritious, layered with flavour, and uncomplicated. Less is more. As I've mentioned before, there is quiet efficiency and frugality in traditional Irish food.

New Recipe: St Patrick's Day Pie #PieWeek #Recipe #IrishFood

St Patrick’s Day Pie is made at a time of the year when the core ingredients are still fresh, seasonal, and local. I accept it’s also a cheesy/corny name for a pie, but with the green, white, and gold colours what else could I call it? Apparently it’s…

New Recipe: Warming Soup #vegan #wholesome

After 5 days in a row at the allotment, I’m taking a break today. It has been great to get back to work, even if it’s a bit hard going at the start of the year. We’ve been adding to our raised beds, changing the format of the polytunnel, and much more.…
his warming soup has been on the go all week. The gentle heat instantly starts working as soon as I have a bowl in my hand, and the fresh bitter greens along with citrus hit from the lemon is a real change to a classic thick blended soup.

Shopping Tips - 9 March 2015 - Read this & you'll probably save money on your weekly grocery bill!

I’ve spent the past week avoiding the shops after the 6-year-old caught a rotten dose of chicken pox. All my stocktaking and meal planning has come in very handy and this far the only thing I’ve run out of is milk, which was easily fixed. I know that I’ll…
