Rich onion soup recipe
Maybe one of the simplest soups, but because of its simplicity, you want to take extra care when making it. Since the main ingredient are onions and you don’t add much else in great proportions, you can’t hide behind other grand flavours. So you want to properly caramelize the onions to get that delectable balance between savoury and sweet. To add just that extra bit of oomph, I like to add some Marmite, it seems to enhance the flavour of the onions.
Homemade sugar free muesli recipe
This homemade muesli is so simple to make and hardly takes any time at all. I made this sugar free oat muesli for my husband since he eats muesli for breakfast every day. He used to eat store-bought muesli, but since I made him this homemade muesli, he never wants store-bought again. He prefers his breakfast without any sugar, so this recipe is sugar free. Although when I have my muesli on Saturday morning, I add a small spoonful of sugar.

From scratch pizza that is easy and tasty
Who doesn’t love pizza, I know my family and I love pizza. Its cheesy bready saucy goodness can make anyone feel better. And when made from scratch, it can be considered a semi-healthy dinner.

Gravy pie filled with mince and mushrooms
Gravy is the queen of sauces, it simply makes everything better. Proper gravy should be comforting and give a luxurious feel while you eat it. That doesn’t mean that it should be complicated or hard to make. Because we want to be comforted by eating gravy not stressed out from the making.

Rustic gluten-free oat biscuits recipe
These rustic oats biscuits are so hearty and filling. The oats give them a natural sweetness, and the addition of a tiny bit of sugar makes them absolutely perfect.

Which is nice, if your kids also look at you with disappointment when they find out you ate all the biscuits the night before.
