Just in case you’re planning to do a little cooking

To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes or do it the easy way and buy mashed potato mix, it keeps in the cupboard for up to a year.

When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking tin, use a bit of dry cake mix instead and there
won’t be any white mess on the outside of the cake.  

Wrap celery in aluminium foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.

Cure for headaches take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will
go away, or, take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and drink! All your pains go away :)):))

And if you haven’t heard this one before, don’t throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces !! ( that’s if you have any left) :):)  


Pancake breakfast tea

At you will find unique, hand-blended artisan loose leaf teas with a new limited edition creation every week of the year.

Not your average black or green tea but something different like ‘Pumpkin Cheese Cake Black Tea’ or ‘Pancake Breakfast Flavoured Black Tea’.

The bad news is that they are based in North America and although shipping is free in US and Canada, obviously UK buyers will have to pay for shipping.

If you become a tea subscriber you will receive one 1 -2 ounce pouch of tea every week of your subscription.

They were the North American Tea Champions in 2010 and pride themselves on offering a truly unique, one-of-a-kind tea blend that you will not find anywhere else.

It’s a shame its not in the UK but I just felt I had to mention this offer to our bloggers and readers outside the UK.
