    Creamed Leeks

    I was getting very bored with the way I prepared vegetables recently, and found a recipe by a British chef called James Martin for creamed leeks. Lots of requests to make more by children, and it's...

    I like to soften a couple of chopped onions very gently in some olive oil, then add plenty of chopped garlic (I find that crushed can become bitter), and then add chopped fresh tomatoes, aubergine...

    If I weighed in kilograms what I measure in inches, I would also be at my ideal weight according to the BMI charts (not that I put too much faith in those!). Must be something in it! However, I'm...

    If you've been working outside in the heat, drinking lots of water and sweating too, then you're likely low on salt. The best way to tell is to get someone to put salt directly onto your tongue and...

    Almond flour works well, but rather than buying expensive gluten-free breadcrumbs, why not try and see if you can find ground rice? If you're not averse to the occasional bit of rice, then these...

    Not scientific, but if my lactose intolerant husband is to eat yoghurt, I have to leave it to ferment (admittedly in my yoghurt maker) for 24 hours. Any less and he is ill, and much more and the...

    I have a Kindle Paperwhite and find that, as long as the brightness is turned down, I have no problems with sleeping even if I read in bed.

    If it were me, and if the milk doesn't cause you any problems, I'd just go with the milk rather than use a sweetener - mind you, I drink my tea and coffee black, so am probably not the best for...

    I'd also check liquid soaps (especially some of the more eco-friendly ones, oddly), and if you're female you need to research your make-up. Many lipsticks and foundations have wheat in, as do some...
