Yeah, that happens a lot round here, courtesy of having a rubbish immune system, awful working hours and an 8 year old. In a bid to banish the heavy-cold feeling, I knock up a large jug of this stuff - and, by golly, it works a treat every time.
10 Profitable Side Hustles You Can Start Today There are so many ways to earn money outside of your day job. In fact, just relying on one income can be a bit scary. If, for whatever reason, you lose your day job, then your income stream is stopped immediately. So, it's always best to have some others so that you can replace that income.
Everyday Sausages, 38p This is a brand new and exclusive recipe from my new book Vegan, published in December. I get a few questions about the title, so just to be clear, it's a totally vegan book full of totally vegan recipes - I just describe myself as 'veganish' these days because I still occasionally work with animal products, but the book is 100% deliciously vegan.
Busy as a Bee I don't think I've paused for longer than two minutes today. It's not been a bad day, just one of those that has flowed from one task to the next. First as always was the school run. I checked the lost property box this morning and found both of yesterday's missing sandwich boxes.
Tracking Your Goal Progress A HUGE mistake people make is being "confused" about how to achieve their goals. This is just what your brain does. It freaks out when you want to do something new. The best way to solve this confusion is to set up a system where you track your results.
Marketers do not want you to be content. On Monday, I wrote a Five Frugal Things post that mentioned CoolSculpting. The discussion made me think about marketing and contentment, and here we are. I've written a lot of posts about contentment on this blog over the years. A lot.
Chickpea, Carrot & Coriander Falafels This recipe uses tinned chickpeas, but can also use dried chickpeas if you have them available. Dried chickpeas work out cheaper but will need to be soaked in cold water for at least 8 hours before starting the recipe, and then need to be cooked. If you have dried chickpeas, use half the quantity of tinned, i.e.

Salad-Bag Pesto, 13p Bagged salad is one of the most wasted foods in Britain, with over half of it ending up in landfill. I have had this recipe in mind since my first cookbook, A Girl Called Jack, and although it is something I make for myself on a regular basis, absorbed into my household as a common staple, it has never been committed to paper until now.

Carrot, Ginger and Cannelini Soup, 23p This was a Monday afternoon delight, a use-up for the stray carrots that were lolling around in the vegetable drawer to kickstart the week with a hefty dollop of vitamin C and some fire in our bellies.
The Great Tradwife debate Not quite sure what put me in the mood but the children were quite happy to discover a mountain of jam tarts waiting for them after school. It made me feel a little nostalgic for my posh friend in the old play ground. While the tarts were cooking I fell across an article about The Tradwife movement.
Cheapest Supermarket of 2019 Revealed The cheapest supermarket of 2019 has been revealed…however, I don't believe it is actually the best value place to shop. Do you? It's a hotly debated topic and one that gets asked a lot in our supermarket savings community - where is the cheapest place to shop?
A few words about body image + 4 other frugal things Longtime readers will remember my persistent troubles with squirrels nesting in my van. I'd heard the suggestion of an under-hood light before, but at first, I thought that made no sense. Squirrels aren't nocturnal, after all. But then I realized that even in broad daylight, it IS dark and safe-feeling under my van's hood.

Amazing Coconut Cake…. Oh my goodness, you are in for a treat if you try this coconut cake because it is genuinely the most amazing cake I've made in a long time! Honestly, it's such a lovely cake and takes me right back to my school days as I'm 99% sure that this was one of my favourite school dinner puddings.
The 21 Best Personal Development Blogs If you have read my story at all you know I started a blog on the side of my full time job, which I then turned into a full time business. All of this started randomly because I was interested in personal development, money, and blogging. Needless to say, all three are near and dear to my heart.
Meal Plan Monday #43 Although, how is it Monday again so soon!?I hope you have a good week How is it looking so far? As far as I can see, there's nothing particularly important going on this week for us; a nice normal week of the usual routine. That should mean a low spending week!
How to save money when you think you can't afford to…. The easier it is, the more likely you are to transfer money into it. This is my biggest suggestion if someone asks me how to save because I know from personal experience that the more effort I have to put in, the less likely I am to actually save.
The Weekend Edition #92 Have you had a good week? I feel like this weekend is flying by, as did the week just gone. Which I'm glad about to be honest. Although I love Winter and it's my favourite season, getting up in the dark is hard. Trying to persuade a four year old to get up in the dark is even harder!
