Home made hummus, hummus, home-made hummus, quick hummus recipe, hummus recipe
Hummus is traditionally served with flat bread, but equally delicious as a dip with carrots, celery and cucumber. Or try it with crackers or tortillas. Sprinkled with a bit of chili or paprika .. stop it .. I'm making myself hungry! But the great thing about hummus is that's so...
Meatloaf, meatloaf surprise, meatloaf with hidden eggs, meatloaf with egg and bacon
I like presenting foods that have an element of surprise and this meatloaf certainly ticks the box! Now, I mean a surprise as in a good thing. Not as in a Rachel's trifle surprise in Friends kinda thing (For those of you who don't know what the heck I'm on about - here's the clip :) ...
Vegan fudge, vegan fudge recipe, pecan fudge, fudge recipe
OK, I admit .. I'm not vegan. But our daughter is, so we try to cut down on the amount of meat we consume and aim to have a few "veggie" days a week. And we try to find vegan alternatives for some meals and treats, especially when she's back home from Uni. Like this vegan fudge...

Anything that sparkles in the light will do. So when I found some marbles lying around the house recently it was a great opportunity to...

I love plants .. despite being somewhat of a self confessed plant killer! (If you feel my pain, check out this post for 10 easy maintenance houseplants). And with every plant, of course, comes choosing a gorgeous planter that best suits your home and personality. There's such a great variety of planters available...
Candle, candle holder, DIY candle holder, nautical candle holder,
Living near the sea-side of course it's inevitable that we've got quite a few nautical accessories in our home. What am I saying? - our downstairs toilet looks more like a beach hut than a real beach hut! :) - seriously, I'm not kidding ... And since we love using candles in our home, creating this...

Spring is by far my favourite season. I just love the lush green everywhere and the promise of better weather ahead (yes, even in the UK!) Having a spring wreath in your home is a great way to invite spring into your home and bringing the outdoors in. With the days getting longer and summer on...
Whether's it's Christmas or summer, we always have loads of candles around in our home. They are just such a great way to create an atmosphere in your home (or garden during the summer months). As much as I appreciate the LED ones for safety reasons, there's nothing like a good old fashioned real candle (in my...
