Simple Handscrub & Lotion Bars

Simple Handscrub This is the kind of gift that a small child can make, and actually they’d probably love the feeling of squishing the oil and other ingredients together. We used organic ingredients because we’d rather use them where we have the option.

Morphy Richards Spiralizer Express Review

In advance of its launch on the Irish market, Dimpco sent me a Morphy Richards Spiralizer Express to test out at home and review. To be very honest with you, I’ve never bought a spiralized item in my life and don’t have a manual spiralizer in the house. Which sounds mad considering the glut of …

Feed Your Family Well For Less

This is my mantra. There’s no need to spend a fortune on good, wholesome food for a family. So you’ll excuse me if I have a little rant today. I promise I did sleep on it first though!

Mienas Handmade Nougat

Miena and I used to work together in an industry as unrelated to food as possible. Considering we both worked for a company that had less than 10 employees it’s pretty amazing that two of us have ended up following our passion for food.

Savoury Crumble With Mustard

I was recently contacted by Maille, who asked me to review a gift box of their premium mustards. What better way to review a product than to try it in a recipe and see how it stands up to my Savoury Crumble with Mustard?

Morphy Richards Soup Maker Review

A couple of weeks ago I was asked would I like to try out a Morphy Richards Soup Maker for review purposes. Even though space is at a premium in my galley kitchen, this appliance sounded very interesting and I decided to to give it a go.

Cooking With Kids

I’ll let you in on a secret; our ground floor is made up of only 2 rooms. The first is the living area which is North facing and has space for a sofa and a dining table and chairs at a squish. The second is my small galley kitchen, South facing, which is bathed with …

Rosewater Shortbread

While I may have a frugal food blog, there are a few things in life that I don’t like to skimp on. It goes without saying that my preferred brand of tea is non-negotiable when it comes to the shopping list. When I’m baking I don’t compromise as shortcuts when it comes to quality always …
