Krispy Fried Chicken

    I didn't have any breadcrumbs in the freezer and no bread left to make any so I experimented tonight. This is my take on krispy fried chicken.  This was a massive hit. I only got the tiniest of pieces. Will be a regular here with salad during summer. Would make yummy burgers too.  This makes quite a bit of coating. Store remainder in an airtight container.

This recipe below is for two chicken breasts which should [...]

Homemade Washing Powder

  I have spent weeks and weeks researching this topic to create my own recipe. You would think this is quite simple but there is a bit you need to know. Everything is explained below. Before I go on, if you have a favorite brand of powder and are absolutely in love with it, making your own will be a big leap. The consistency is different, the smell is different and its less sudsy. The store bought ones are a lot more powerful but that is because they use powerful chemicals such as bleach. I have experimented using this powder on baby clothes, kids clothes and a load of dirty [...]

Chocolate Caramel Tarts

   Earlier today I posted my Caramel Condensed Milk on my Facebook page. I hinted that I was turning it into something. This is it. My Chocolate Caramel Tarts. These are a little bit more time consuming than a slice but worth the effort. They are a great addition to a dessert bar or high tea.
