    All of us eat and drink every day, and many are skilled home cooks, yet often we forget to share our best recipes and money saving tips! So, why not make the most of our garden's produce, and our supermarket savvy by sharing recipes, hints, tips and money-saving ideas! Please come and join the discussion on how we can make the most of our knowledge, and get the most fun and inspiration!

    Recipes Sub-Forum Discussion


    Or, why not learn something from our very own resident CHEF!

  3. PLEASE NOTE
    It is our intention to do some routine maintenance in the late afternoon/early evening of Saturday 20th January. For the most part, this will not affect the running of the site, but there is a very small possibility that things may run a little slower for short periods of time. Should this be the case, please bear with us and normal service will be resumed as quickly as possible.
    Please be assured that this maintenance is NOT being done by an automatic process, and is being done manually by the staff team, who will take all steps necessary to prevent slow-downs or disruption.
    Thank you in advance for your understanding.
