Slow-cooker beef brisket with rich onion gravy

I love beef, and particularly when it is slow-cooked- that tender, fall apart texture can't be beaten! Beef brisket is one of the cheaper cuts to buy because it does require a long, slow cook, but you really can't beat it, and it makes a fantastic Sunday roast centrepiece that actually requires very little effort!

Apple pie porridge with maple syrup

Porridge really comes into its own in Autumn, it's warming, filling, cheap and doesn't have to be boring!

After the hospital was closed in the 1980’s, it was developed into housing- and now forms a whole village. When we were looking into moving back to Devon (where I grew up) from London, we just fell in love with our house- it has ...

Review of the AEG FX9 Ultimate Reach FX9-1-IBM Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
