So it was Xmas and I fancied a bit of something sweet and chocolaty. All the shop bought biscuits that I found had ingredients with wheat, milk, eggs and margarine. So, I went out on the hunt for something like a healthier treat and found the recipe for these biscuits. Now being a bit of a health nut, I am not in the habit of baking biscuits so the outcome was an unknown. The result was delicious rich chocolate biscuits. Quick too. 15 minutes to … [Read more...]

  Soak unhulled buckwheat seed overnight. Sprout in a sprout bag until the root is about 5mm long. When sprouting, rinse regularly. It can take quite a number of days to sprout. I nearly threw them out thinking nothing was happening. Put about 2-3cm of compost-rich soil onto a container.

It was a VERY cold winter night and after I had got myself snug by the fire I was VERY reluctant to go into the freezing cold kitchen to make dinner. It got later and later and eventually I figured I needed to make something for dinner. Then it grabbed me!

I could visualize the ease in which dinner … [Read more...]

Eventually, the pressure of truth mounted until all those that had been lying through their teeth were taken to the cleaners as the cat was let out the bag and the world acknowledged the dangers of tobacco products.
