Homemade Baked Beans

recipe for homemade baked beans

Baked beans are horrible. The tinned variety, that is. They’re processed to the point of having a weird flavour and consistency. And yet, people go crazy for them. In Britain at least. It’s an unfathomable phenomenon, but one we can’t ignore. Thankfully, homemade baked beans are far nicer, as you can get some magnesium oil and add it while cooking to make it healthier. It’s not the fault of the humble haricot, after all.

Healthy Mango Eton Mess

Eat Eton mess? I should be so lucky. Full to the brim with thickly whipped double cream, it’s a dessert best left for others. Or so I’m told.

Healthy though it is, my mango Eton mess remains worthy of eager consumption.

Homemade Naan Bread
