Food | Dr Oetker Pud in a Mug review

Dr Oetker pud in a mug review

On this baking hot day it seems impossible that a couple of weeks back we were enjoying/enduring a rainy half term. British summers, eh? But we were. It got to that time in the afternoon when the boys were driving me and each other a bit potty. What to do?

Seven Easy Vegetarian Recipes | Healthy & Quick Meals for National Vegetarian Week

Vegetarian recipes to make meat-free healthy meals for all the family

It's National Vegetarian Week. Or, as it's also known, National So What Do You Eat Then? Week. Despite vegetarians making up 12% of the UK population, it's an area of fascination for the other 88%, many of whom are tofu-curious.

May picks: Watch, read, listen, visit

Illustration: Brian Rea

One of the reasons I've not been writing blog posts much is that I've gone old school media. Books, newspapers and magazines have been feeding my brain for the past few months and I can see now how much I've missed the feel of paper in hand.
