Make your own Pizza

This week at the Chequers cookery school we made pizza. Pizza is my absolute favourite meal and I eat pizza at least once every couple of weeks. Because I am vegetarian my choice of pizza is limited so I was so excited that I would be able to make my own pizza with any toppings I like. Tilly can also be a bit of a fussy eater at times and so its nice to know I can make pizza for her and a different one for me with anything we want.

Cooking Bread

This week at cooking at the Chequers cookery school we made bread. I had never made bread before and always considered making bread something of a specialist skill and not something I thought I could ever do. I was so surprised at how easy it was and there really is nothing better then the smell of freshly baked bread.

Home Made Curry Sauce, Made From Scratch

I decided to become a vegetarian at the age of 8. I was lucky that I had a mum that understood and respected my decision despite other family members not being so understanding. She has always made a vegetarian variety of whatever she made for dinner and I am forever grateful that she has respected my decision.

 My mum has also been attending cooking classes at the Chequers cooking school and this week made a vegetable curry sauce that she would like to share with you all.

Randon act of kindness

Today is Random act of kindness day. We all like to think that we are kind and most people are to the ones we love, but how many people have recently done something kind to help a complete stranger without any thought of a reward?
