Homemade Vegan Mayonnaise

Homemade Vegan Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise. Such a versatile ingredient and it’s an accompaniment for most meals. Chips, burgers, sandwiches, salads and other meals that can be dipped are always teamed up with a giant blob of white sauce. Finding a vegan mayonnaise we liked proved difficult until I learned how to make my own and it only takes 10 seconds! Here’s our homemade vegan mayonnaise recipe.

Christmas dinner is the highlight of the day for many people, especially adults who don’t get a mountain of toys to keep them occupied.

A Roaring Success: Tiger Bread Recipe

Our recent house move has taught us many things. One of those things is that living so close to an Asda supermarket can be a bad thing. Over the last few weeks we’ve popped in for the odd thing or two, as you do, and developed a slight addition to Tiger Bread. I decided to give it a try myself and making it vegan, so here is my Tiger Bread recipe.

Dabble In Stocks: Put your Vegetable Scraps To Good Use

Vegetable scrap stock

I dabble in stocks all the time, but with no financial risks. Yes, it’s a bad joke but one that might save you a few pounds buying stock cubes.

I hate waste, especially waste that I’ve paid for. I’m always looking at ways of reducing the amount of food waste I have such as batch cooking, putting leftovers in the freezer for another meal and making clean up meals (basically throwing everything about to go bad into a pot and hoping for the best). Just before Christmas I came across yet another way to save money on something so simple yet so useful. Vegetable scrap stock.

Cheap, Quick And Easy Pizza Pasties

Do you ever have one of those days when your looking in the fridge for something different to feed the short ones in your house? Too lazy to create something from scratch and the kids are bored of the usual “f-it Friday” dinner of chicken nuggets, potato waffles and beans. I was here last weekend. I needed something quick and tasty before heading out to the fireworks so looked in my bare fridge (day before shopping day) and threw together these cheap, quick and easy pizza pasties.

Pumpkins – What To Do With Them


October, I love everything about it – the colours, the weather, the fact it is Halloween (and my wedding anniversary) and the food! I bought my first Halloween pumpkin last weekend, it was a BEAST for £3 from Sainsbury’s and it was worth every penny. The poor Halloween pumpkin is often wasted once it hits the shops with most people only using it to carve and leave out on the 31st. There are so many wonderful things you can do with this bright orange beauty!
