Simple Waffle Recipe

This is one of the easiest waffle recipes I've tried and one that I use pretty much every time I want to make waffles for breakfast. This is a really simple recipe to follow and once you master the basics, you can start experimenting with the recipe. I like to swap around the flour for wholemeal or spelt flour (just add a little bit more baking powder to counteract the fact that you are not using self-raising flour. Buttermilk makes this recipe totally amazing, but if you are on a budget or you can't find buttermilk in your food shop, just use normal milk. The buttermilk makes these waffles extra buttery, but of course, it also adds calories! Simple Waffle Recipe The easiest waffle recipe that just taste divine! 2 ...

Is liquorice good for you?

Is liquorice good for you? Well, like many children growing in the UK in the 1970’s, I only thought of liquorice (if I thought of it at all) as something to be used to reach into the bottom of my packet of sherbet dip. Once wet, the sherbet stuck to the liquorice, but if you ate the two together, you were liable to run out of liquorice before you ran out of sherbet. At least I did! Naturally (probably, on reflection not the best word) I was after the fizzy sensation of the sherbet, and that tingling feeling on my tongue. However, what I often got instead was a coughing fit as the yellow powder hit the back of my mouth. That’s if it didn’t end up all over my school uniform, first. The jet-black liquorice itself was best left to the ...

Creamy Vodka Steak Pasta

So delicious, yet so simple! This is very quick pasta dish which uses shop bought sauce, but don't worry if you can't find it in your local shop. You can easily make it with some double cream, a dash of vodka, pinch of ground peper and a little bit of lemon or lime.  If you don't fancy the addition of an alcohol, just leave it out. To be honest the alcohol is there just for flavour, as it disapears when you pour it over the hot dish. If you'd like to make this recipe gluten free, I've given you the option to use zucchini instead of pasta. It makes this dish even lighter, but still packed full of flavour.

10 Best Knife Sharpener Reviewed [2019]

Anyone who owns a knife definitely needs a knife sharpener. Even if you are using the highest-quality knife, it will eventually get dull over time. Using a dull knife can be very dangerous. In order to keep it safe, you have to sharpen it regularly. Take note that a knife sharpener is entirely different from a knife steel/honing steel in the military. A knife sharpener will provide a new edge to your knife while a knife steel will align the edge. Most knife sets include a honing steel so you might think that this is all you need. Honing without sharpening can make your knife dull over time. Simply put, if you only have a honing steel then you must also buy a knife sharpener. Having a dull knife can make your work ineffective. So, how can ...
