PITA CHIPS

PITA CHIPS

Pita chips are so easy to make and are a delicious crunchy accompaniment to any dip. They are also much better than the store bought ones. I’m giving you a basic recipe which will go with anything. It’s best with a flavourful robust dip, but […]

Once it starts getting cold and I know my herb plants are at the end of their cycle, I will make herbed oil with them. It’s nice to have different flavoured olive oil and they are so easy to make. They’re nice to have on […]

BEET HUMMUS

BEET HUMMUS

I have a friend who is vegan and when she visits I usually have some kind of hummus and pita chips available for us to snack on. I bought a beetroot hummus from the store and it wasn’t that great. It was sweet and lacked […]

In the summer I like to grill and this is my favourite accompaniment to whatever I’m grilling.  I make a big batch of it and keep it in the fridge almost every week during the summer. My favourite is to spoon it over grilled beef […]
