Yummies

This is a page for family favourite recipes, many passed ont to me from friends and family, all of them have been well tried.

With budgets in mind, a lot of the recipes are adapted to use cheaper cuts of meat, also most of them are freezer friendly, so we can make large portions and stock them in the freezer.

I am always grateful to people sending me recipes that they love and then to share them on this section for others to try. I will be putting up some vegitarian recipes and all the recipes benefit from organic or home produce, if you can afford them or you grow them yourself.
