Happy VE Day!
In the grocer in Sturminster Newton yesterday I found fresh turmeric. Only that morning my mother was saying she wanted to eat it to help various ailments. So as luck would have it ….
1 aubergine with 1 clove finely slice garlic, olive oil and salt
glug of plain oil (olive, rapeseed …
Adding colour to a lockdown lunch.

60mls white balsamic or white wine vinegar

I have been making this bread for about a year. Today I ran out of Sorghum flour and replaced it with Millet flour. The result is amazing! It is so light and so delicious. The ingredients make 2 loaves. I added cheese to the second loaf and it was eaten up in one sitting. If …

I noticed a difference in …
I hate to admit that I let our veg garden overflow this year, and not in a good way. It is a bit of a jungle now and within it I found about 10 cucumbers, all a good size. So what better thing to do with them than make soup… it is cool, soothing and …
These bran muffins have no bran in them. Bran used in bran muffins is wheat bran and not gluten free. My love of bran muffins comes from visiting my Canadian grandparents in their house in Florida during Easter holidays (very lucky me). Granny would drive me to the local shop just so I could buy …
