It makes a refreshing change knowing if you add a little wine to your favourite recipe it’s doing you a power of good – probably. Although red wine is reputed to contain the majority of health beneficial flavonoids, the minimum a white wine will do is increase the flavour of the dish. Here are five recipes where a little wine may improve your wellbeing and move your cooking up a notch. Steak and Mash with Red Wine Sauce Something a little different for those cold UK winter’s evening meals. Use a Pinot Noir or Côtes du Rhône for best results.
John decided to go vegetarian a good few months ago now which means we eat slightly different things for a lot of meals. Sometimes, we eat a completely different meal altogether. When we do this it’s sometimes easier to have something for John in the freezer so he doesn’t have to spend ages cooking after work. One of John’s favourites is bolognese as there are many different uses for it! So, here is my vegetarian bolognese that only costs about 60p per portion! Shopping List (Makes 4 portions) 2 carrots – 20p 1/2 onion – 17p 50-75g of Sainsbury’s vegetarian
It still surprises me how many people haven’t been introduced to air fryers yet. I have to admit, we were pretty late to the game but we are most definitely converted. Today, I’ll be telling you all about the Sensio Home Air Fryer, what we think of it and you’ll even have a chance to win one for yourself. The Sensio Home Air Fryer is really easy to use. Unlike some air fryers there are no digital controls on this one. The top dial controls the heat setting and the lower dial controls the timer. Once you have these two set then you’re
Not too long ago our 7+ year old microwave died. What we thought was an exploded meal was actually rust and it just wasn’t working as well as it should. It took quite some time to actually think about how old that microwave was and we still can’t decide. Either I bought it while I was at university or John bought it when he first moved into our old flat. Whichever it was, it was really old and I think the cheapest we could get at the time. It certainly wasn’t anything special. It wasn’t even digital. Luckily, AO.com came to
One of Erin’s favourite foods when she was about 1 was parsnips. If we would go out for a carvery or a roast dinner these would be her food of choice. Sadly, she’s been going through a fussy stage lately and won’t each much at all so I thought cooking up some air fryer parsnips might do the trick. The great thing about air fryer parsnips is that you can do them a few different ways. If you follow the recipe below you can either serve them with a roast dinner or you can have them in chip style! These
Brussel spouts, whether you like them or not, are a traditional part of Christmas dinner. I, personally, am not a fan myself but my husband John LOVES them. The problem with Christmas dinner is that there is so much to do, only a certain number of hobs available on the cooker and not enough time to really do everything you want. I want to spend Christmas Day with my family, watching Erin opening her presents and having fun so I decided to experiment a bit and see what I could cook in my air fryer. The great thing about this
As a busy parent I like to find products that save me time and make my life easier. Vremi is a brand that have so many fun and interesting products but they’re also super useful at the same time.

Earlier in the year (might be last year actually) we threw away our deep fat fryer. We relied on it way too much for nice food that was quick to cook and decided that enough was enough and it was time for it to go. However, since then, I have really wanted an air fryer. The air fryer is really easy to set up because all you really need to do is plug it in and work out which settings you need to use. There aren’t that many options either so there’s no risk of getting super confused about which
