Chai Spiced Hot Cross or Tea Buns (Vegan)

I’ve been wanting to create a vegan hot cross bun for a while now, and I thought, heck, why not make them a little bit special while I was at it? This recipe combines two of our old favourites: my world famous (well, maybe just 

Eggy Seasoning

Eggy Seasoning

There are a lot of great egg substitutes out there, but they can be expensive and hard to find. We’ve found that basic ingredients, such as tofu and chickpeas, are excellent stand-ins for eggs, and this simple seasoning elevates them even further, reducing the need

Treating Wry Neck in Your Flock

Wry neck is a condition that will cause your bird to hold her head at a funny, backward angle, as if looking up, and she may struggle to stand up or eat. This most often happens with chicks and ducklings, but it can happen with

Basic No-Knead Bread

I’ve already posted my favourite No-Knead Oatmeal Bread recipe, but I thought I would also share my super quick base recipe that I use either totally on its own, or as a jumping off point for various flavoured loaves. I most often use it to

Tackling My Nemesis, the Laundry Room

When my husband and I took on the huge job of building our house, the only way we could afford to do it at all was by putting in a lot of our own “sweat equity”, as we had very little of the monetary kind 

Irish Soda Bread (Vegan)

Irish Soda Bread (Vegan)

I’m kind of a traditionalist when it comes to food (except for, you know, the whole vegan thing). I adore simple, old world recipes; the stuff our grandmothers could whip up using nothing more than intuition and what she had on hand. Simple, rustic food
