Re: Is the grass really greener?

I just think that life is what you make it. Its up to you as an individual. I personally know of some people who have tried 2 or 3 different countries and still moan, possible they will not ever find wot they are looking. I would like to give it a try but there is a nagging doubt at the back of my m...

Re: Bottling homemade pasta sauce

My family in Italy cook the preserved tomatoes once they have been put into the jars. We would spend days in the kitchen just washing and cutting up the tomatoes to fit into 1 litre beer bottles, add some basil and pinch of sugar, put on new tops and then put into a large barrel fill with cold water...

Re: Spinoff - why did you choose your username?

I chose mine as it really is my nickname. Where I work i do lots of cooking for the other girls who work there and they decided to give my food a brand name and came up with pizzamomma and also my OH is known for his home made pizza's so it seemed appropriate and it would be easy for me to remember.

Or how do you find like minded people locally willing to share their knowledge. I live in North Essex and am not having much lu...
