  1. I follow a diet for health reasons that restricts a lot of foods including any processed or cured meat with the exception of prosciutto. I still have bacon about once a fortnight as a treat as it's ok to follow the diet about 80% as it is so restrictive, but we have a brand that is free of nitrates and other additives
  2. For onions and potatoes I have these hessin bags from the dollaratore that I put them in, and then dark not to warm cupboard
  3. Moisture and bacteria are the enemies so before each big shop every two weeks I clear out and clean the fridge and line the two draws with fresh tea towels. Then the veg goes in released from any packaging and wrapped in kitchen towel if green and leafy.
  4. Stuffed peppers Fry your mix: garlic and onion, then either meat or soy mince, veggies* or a mix until cooked if meat or browned if not, then a tin of diced, purée or other tomato sauce, and finally any herbs, spices or seasoning. While this is cooking cut your peppers length ways and de-seed and grate some cheese Once your mix is ready fill your peppers with it, add a bit of cheese on top and in the oven for half an hour at 400f or until the cheese is browned and the peppers slightly blistered. *A good veggie mix is mushroom and aubergine with cumin and a pinch of chilli flakes
  5. So I finally figured where I was going wrong with my dumplings. For some reason, I think because when I first saw them for sale they were in the freezer. I've been buying the wrappers from the refrigerated section and putting straight into my freezer, and then leaving them out to defrost which of course dries out the edges Despite this I managed to salvage a decent batch, but I'm looking forward to doing it properly next time
  6. Well if she uses pre-made then I'll carry on
  7. Those looks amazing I make my own. No where near as smart looking as your wife's and with premade wrappers but they are so tasty Does she also make the dough?
  8. Does anyone know if it's possible to play Twilight Struggle solo or any tips to do so, it's more just that I want to grips with the rules and figure out how to play
  9. It's not solo but if you like Chess you'll love Hive and can play it online for free: https://en.boardgamearena.com/gamepanel?game=hive Loving all of these suggestion and might try some myself as the OH likes games to but wins to often to be much for fun for either of us at strategy/logic ones like Hive and isn't interested in the really geeky stuff
  10. How much to you think the size dictates how much you use each My LC is exactly four portions of most dishes which is why I think its the one I always go to. Before I had a knock off that only did three which was very annoying as not enough leftovers for the lunch the next day @hungry joe if you do request any pot or pan I would be very specific about size
  11. I thought that was the case though I did have a cheap cast-iron crepe pan crack on me so maybe there is a lower limit Thinking about it my Le Creuset is one of the best gifts I've ever received, I use it almost every day, so might be a good shout if they are wanting to go that expensive
  12. I have my grandparents old Peugeot coffee grinder which is excellent so imagine their salt and pepper grinders would be to I looked this up and the first link said only $29.99 and 1 star. Seems there are lots of dupes on the market, as it's $199.99 on MÄNNKITCHEN Cast iron pans are another good shout but I was under the impression they don't need to be expensive, cast iron is cast iron. Though I do love my Le Creuset enameled one which is stupidly expensive my opinion and a gift which I wouldn't have bought myself but just really lovely to use and much easier to clean then my regular cast iron one
  13. A decent wood and metal pepper grinder is top of my wish list. Three times I've asked for one and been given a plastic or even electric one that's worked for a year maybe two and then broke This beaut is $50 and just like the one that my Dad inherited from my grandparents and has been going for 50+ years and produces the perfect grind, might have to treat myself to it
