Bangers and Peaches Curry Recipe I know, not really a combination I would have thought of, but what a tasty dinner it is! And not only is it delicious, but it is quick and cheap too. Pie is my sister in law. She is also one of my dearest friends. I’ve never told you how […]
Super Simple Hollandaise Sauce (using a stick blender) I love Hollandaise sauce and can, for the life of me, not understand why it took me 30 years to make my first batch. Now I probably make it way too often, but that’s another story. The photo above, by the way, is quite bubbly. That is […]

Here you will find my favourite 2 home-made glue recipes: Tacky Gelatin Glue and Corn starch glue/paste. I have used corn starch glue quite a bit and have really liked the results. But my new favourite is gelatin glue! It is a bit more of a hassle to use once it has cooled down, because […]
A simple recipe for making Jelly and Yoghurt Ice Lollies. All you need is jelly and yogurt…and a pair of little hands to help you.
