Scones – Easy and quick scone recipe!

I love scones, especially with vast quantities of clotted cream and home made jam, but some recipes are so long winded for scones that I decided to share with you my fool proof easy scone recipe. These scones can also be frozen for up to a year in the freezer so why not make a double batch and keep them for the coming months. Enjoy! Makes 20(ish) scones Ingredients 750g self raising flour (with a little extra for dusting) 1.5 teaspoons salt 4 teaspoons baking powder 4 tablespoons of caster sugar 160g unsalted butter 350ml milk (whole, semi-skimmed or skimmed…

Festive Yuletide Orange And Cranberry Spiced Muffins

These festive muffins are great for Yule afternoon as you cozy up in front of the fire.  They are sweet, aromatic, soft and fluffy.  Even better, they are easy to make!  If you don’t like cranberries, you can replace these with blueberries or cherries, which ever you prefer.   They taste lovely with a glass of mulled wine or a mixed berry fruit punch.  They also freeze very well, so make a larger batch and freeze some in case you have unexpected guests arrive (or in case you want more yourself ).  I do love a bit of cakey goodness…

Natural Cold Flu & Sore Throat Winter Remedy & Tonic

Before I start this recipe and before you glance down and think you are about to have a meltdown with all the weird sounding ingredients and all the faffing about…stop.  This remedy is excellent. Yes it requires a lot of unusual stuff and yes it is a faff to make but it is better than a lot of over the counter stuff you’ll get and it’s natural! Ingredients 370g fresh rosehips 8g dried echinacea leaf 10g dried calendula petals 10g dried comfrey 20g dried coltsfoot 20 whole cloves 3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon 400g granulated sugar 5 teaspoons of freshly chopped ginger…

Slow Cooker Honey & Soy Chicken

I love my slow cooker and when I say ‘love’ I mean, LOVE.  In fact, I have two that sit side by side on my kitchen counter. One is a large 6.5L and the other a 3L.  The beauty is, I can add everything I need in first thing in the morning and whilst I am out at work dinner is cooking.  Plus when you walk through your front door the smell is amazing!  This dish went down very well last night and this is the slow cooker version of a sweet BBQ sauce I used to make so I…

Tomato, Aubergine and Chilli Chutney

I am a bit of a sucker for chutneys. The idea of a white crusty roll filled with chedder cheese and home made chutney fills me with deep joy. But chutneys, good chutneys, can be very expensive to buy, however, they are actually incredibly cheap to make, they just take time. Below is my recipe for tomato, aubergine and chilli chutney, all three of which we have grown in our garden this year. These are the last of our crop so I wanted to put them to good use, our neighbour donated some extra tomatoes too! (Thank you!) Ingredients 900g…

Rosehip And Hawthorn Berry Spiced Syrup

I love making rosehip syrup during the Autumn/Winter months but this recipe (my own creation) makes my mouth water just smelling it cook. I dedicate this recipe to Laura from Woodlands Witch blog who asked for the recipe, I hope you like it Laura! This syrup is a really excellent tonic, a teaspoon a day keeps colds and sniffles at arms length, and when taken whilst you have a cold helps to beat it off a bit faster, it also soothes the throat and tastes yum!  Bursting with vitamin C it also makes a healthy ice cream topping, add a…

Cottage Cheese / Curd Cheese UK Recipe

My youngest daughter is lactose intolerant which is a bit of a bummer as she adores milk, cheese and yoghurt.  We tried various soya, rice and coconut milks and she just couldn’t drink them but then luckily in the UK a new lactose free milk came on to our shop shelves and she loves it, so with this milk we now make our own cottage cheese. It is incredibly easy to make, tastes really good and you can add all your extra flavours to it too.  It is softer than shop bought cottage cheese but much tastier. Ingredients 4 pints…

Homemade Natural Washing Powder / UK Recipe Laundry Powder

We do a lot of washing in our house. About 10 loads a week roughly, sometimes more.  This is something that all households have to do but it does make it hard when one of your kids has very allergic skin.  We have a lot of problems with various washing powders and fabric conditioners as they contain so many harsh chemicals that I might as well just roll my youngest through a patch of nettles! So we decided to make our own homemade washing powder, and we haven’t looked back since!  There are many recipes out there but most are…

Dry Shampoo Recipe – Natural, Easy & Cheap! UK Recipe

My kids are obsessed with dry shampoo and it is very handy stuff.  Normal shop bought shampoo is full of nasties. They are overloaded with chemicals and really do no good to your hair and if used too often can strip out all the natural goodness and leave your hair dull and flat. And what if you are out and about and need your hair to look good but can’t get to a shower? Then dry shampoo is the answer and our recipe is not only super easy to make, it is also cheap and natural. It is safe enough…
