Are you already a vegetarian or are planning on becoming a vegetarian? Perhaps you would like to eat less meat but cannot find any tasty alternatives.

Roast Lamb

This looks like a really tasty version of Roast Lamb including Jack Daniel's Hot Pepper Sauce used to marinate.

Simnel cake

My late mother made the most delicious Simnel cakes. I have not made one since she passed away in 2014, but the following recipe may tempt me. I wonder if it will match hers!

Crabbies Fish and Chips

We all love fish and chips I am sure, but how about including Crabbies Alcoholic Ginger Beer in the batter?

I have been a fan of Duerr's marmalade for as long as I can remember and often buy their wide variety of marmalades.

Nettles are springing out of the ground right now as the weather gets milder, fresh and juicy and full of useful minerals and vitamins.

Tina B Mince pies

I usually make these every year and they are so delicious, they soon disappear!

Su B Vegetarianism

Simple; just don’t eat meat. That’s where it starts with young children, full of ideals – and peer pressure – when they discover that eating meat involves killing animals.

 Ovaltine Article

When my sixteen-year old son asked me to buy Ovaltine, I was not only surprised, I was suspicious.

Charf Bill Sewell

The rhubarb is thrusting vigorously upwards and our chard which was looking very moth-eaten after the winter has started bursting with new growth. So last weekend we had 2 springly, kingly snacks. 

Risotto Bill S

Thank you Bill for your latest recipe. As you say. 'This is the most delicious and comforting dish for leftover roast chicken. In fact I’d never make it unless I had leftover roast chicken. Surprisingly it doesn’t really matter how much meat you’ve left on the bird.'

Bill Brownies

Well. These are extraordinarily good brownies. Chocolatey and deliciously gooey but with just a trace of salty graininess.

Helena Riverford

I was thrilled when I heard I'd won a box of organic produce from Riverford through the website OAPSchat.
