Welcome To...

Champagne Tastes on a Beer Budget!

Craving filet mignon? White Truffles? Beluga Caviar on a carved ice throne???

I have the sneaking suspicion that you are in the wrong spot!!

However, if you want recipes that won't break the bank, plus some nutrition and shopping tips, then bookmark this page!

At this site you will find links to some of the best cooking sites on the Internet, plus recipes of my own (and those of my friends), and information about the ingredients and techniques that make the difference between eating to live and living to eat!

Looking for the low-fat, high fibre version? (more text, fewer graphics...) click here!


My humblest apologies, netizens. Due to minor illness, major studies and a host of other similarily feeble excuses, I've not had time to update this page in far too long!!!. I promise, I will get back to it soon!

Gail's Recipe Swap This is probably the best site around for collecting recipes and tips...a forum filled with people willing to give their tried and true recipes away, just for the asking!

Chatelaine Conversations: Food and Recipes Another great forum for exchanging recipes and by the Canadian magazine Chatelaine. This is a moderated forum, so exchanges tend to be somewhat less 'freewheeling' than at Gail's. Heavy Canadian content - at last!

Veggies Unite! Lots of really good vegetarian recipes and links.

Mimi's Cyber Kitchen No relation to Mimi's Vegetable Patch, but nevertheless considered to be one of the finest!

Or perhaps a visit to the wine cellar in the lovely gothic Groanangasp Castle would help you to decide?

Wine isn't your cup of tea??? How about that fantastic new product, WaterJoe ...yup...all the caffeine of coffee...without the coffee.....
