it's time to get back to nature

Nature and magic is all around us. Within us. Everywhere. The power of the seasons, the ebb and flow of the tide, the land, sun, sea, stars, moon. It is time to get back to basics. It’s time to go back to nature.

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

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 not to mention, very tangled. 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.

Nettle Soup Recipe

Nettle soup is one of my husband’s favourite springtime/summertime soups.  We first started making it a couple of years ago when we went through a ‘foraging’ phase.  I am pleased to say that the phase hasn’t worn off yet.  Just make sure you wash the nettles well and also remember that younger, smaller nettles taste much better than the older larger nettles.  Oh and one more thing, wear gloves when handling nettles! Ingredients 450g potatoes 250g young nettles 75g butter 1 onion chopped 1 garlic clove crushed (optional) 1 tablespoon of olive oil 1 1/2 pints of chicken or vegatable

Basic White Bread Recipe

Ingredients 7g dried active yeast 500g strong white flour (bread flour) 350ml warm water 2 teaspoons salt 1 teaspoon sugar a little butter for greasing the loaf tin Method Grease a 900g (2lb) loaf tin with butter. Add a little of the warm water, sugar and yeast
