The Boomboom CV19 Survival Guide

A couple of folk have asked if I am going to publish some virus happy recipes in this trying time of Covid Bastard 19 and my response to that is although I am at least five types of idiot, I’m not that type of idiot. Unless you’re one of those shelf stripping scumbags hoarding all […]

Here’s to a Flexi Twenty

I’m too old for new years resolutions, what a load of guff. I’m not, however, falsely confident enough to say I’m 100% happy remaining forever the exact same lump of middling to average human being that will shuffle off to bed some time in the first hours of the new year. I need to up […]

Easy Lunchbox Traybake

That’s it, Christmas is over, it’s back to work and back to accepting that Stilton and chocolate Santas for every meal is probably not a great idea (no, not even if they are dark chocolate Santas). It’s time to get your January plan on, people. This might mean going vegan, switching to meal replacement shakes […]

For Those About To Veganuary….

I salute you! I’m no vegan, but I do try to make more of my meals meat and dairy free than aren’t. It’s not because I particularly enjoy butterbeans. It’s actually for many reasons which I won’t bore you with now but suffice to say if I could get away with a bacon double cheeseburger […]
