Hi everyone - I am the food editor at Stuff and I will be posting recipes, kitchen hacks and weekly meal plan ideas on this page. If you have any recipes to share or questions, feel free to send me a message.
If you were one those who turned to baking to get through lockdown - and even if you weren't! - thought I'd kick off by sharing the two most popular recipes on Stuff during those seven weeks: pull-apart hot cross bun bread, a recipe from Nicola Galloway, and cheese straws, a recipe from Sam Mannering. Let me know what you cooked in lockdown too.
Most of us like to think we're doing what we can to lessen our impact on the environment, but how green is your weekly shop?
Beyond the eco-swaps you’ve probably already made, here are some of the least eco-friendly grocery store items to steer clear of next time you're loading up your trolley, with minimal disruption to your routine.
To reduce drafts around your windows, and therefore keep your home warmer during winter, it is worth checking your friction stays - the hinge which holds the part of the window which opens to the frame. There are several problems which can develop over time:
1. The friction wears out & windows flop open in the breeze,
2. The hinge gets corroded & stiff to open, sometimes this can be re-covered by spraying the 4 friction joints with a spray lube, anything but the red 556 CRC which has a cutting compound in it.
3. The hinge wears & loses the ability to pull the top of the window closed
An easy way to check your friction stays is with our free draft testing card. To request a card, or book a free assessment, give us a call on 0800 25 25 00
