Cirtus cleaner

agosto 3, 2018
This recipe is so easy to make. the finished product is great for shower doors an removing lime scale. Since I have been making this I have not purchased any other cleaners. Oh and it smells really fresh too.
The good thing about this cleaner is you don't have to have lots of fruit all at can add to it as you go along.

What you need
A jar with an air tight lid
White vinegar
Citrus fruit

What you do

Peel the fruit an place the skin into the jar.
Cover with vinegar
Put on lid and keep in a dark place for 2 weeks (or longer)
Use as you wish

If you eat oranges every day you can add the peel until the jar is full. Just make sure you cover with vinegar every time  you add to it


Homemade mayonnaise

febrero 11, 2017
Kev loves garlic mayo and that has spurred me on to this recipe. The science behind mayo is basically the eggs need an acid to bind with the oil. The original recipe I found used lemon juice as the acid. Then one day disaster struck and I had no lemons! So thinking on my feet vinegar was added and it worked just as well. The thing I love about this mayo is what you can add to it. Add tomato sauce and Worcester sauce and you have prawn cocktail sauce to name just one use.

Cabbage and bacon

enero 25, 2017
This is one of those recipes that came about as we had a glut of cabbage and only bacon in the fridge. It is a healthy meal that fills you up. We tend to eat this for lunch but you could have it as a side dish for a change. Cabbage and bacon were made for each other, who would have known?

Strawberry Ice-cream (dairy free)

julio 26, 2013
This recipe came from a friend who came to stay with us. She found it in a magazine she bought for her flight here. I can honestly say this is one of the best ice-creams I have made to date and no milk. I think because of the small amount of liquid it is not so icy and is softer to get out of the container. If you want to you can change the fruit for any...I have used cherries and it was delicious.


375g / 13oz strawberries, hulled and washed
80g / 3oz sugar
1 egg white

Spinach Tortilla

mayo 20, 2013
The trick to cooking a Spanish tortilla is in the method of cooking. It is a very different method from cooking an omelette. You will also need a good non-stick frying pan.

Spinach (as much as you want as it disappears when wilted)
2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 large onion, diced
6 eggs
Salt to taste
Olive oil to fry with

Place enough olive oil in the frying pan, just to cover the bottom.
Heat it
Add the onions and cook until soft.
Add the garlic and fry on a low heat until just...

About us...

The reason that I have decided to add this page is because people that look at this website will see photos of all the delicious food we eat here. I cook a mixture of Spanish and English and the recipes on this page will hopefully reflect this. As I am allergic to cows milk everything dairy is made from goats or sheeps milk. I am also allergic to shop bought eggs but funnily enough I can eat the eggs our hens produce. (Must be the food we give them). Anyway all the recipes on here can be changed to accommodate most other allergies too, just change the ingredients to suit yourself. I hope that those of you who like cooking will try a few recipes and let us know how you got on by contacting us on
