One Mother Hen: Broad Bean dip

Broad Bean dip

Broad beans are at their best at the moment, to use when they are young and fresh. Mum recently gave me some from her garden and I made this salad. A few days ago my sister in law gave me some more, yeah, I know, I must have 'give me your broad beans' written on my forehead! A reader mentioned broad bean dip when commenting, so I've decided to give that a go. I loved it. I loved it even better with home made lavash and mums preserved olives too. Usually I have just boiled them with other…

One Mother Hen: Homemade crackers and simple avocado dip

Homemade crackers and simple avocado dip

I make these crackers quite often, usually when there are no other savoury biscuits in the house. They are so moorish. The ingredients are so simple and if you ever took any notice at the ingredient list on a box of supermarket crackers, most probably a lot more natural and healthy. Speaking of natural and healthy, a simple avocado dip to serve them with. I have been enjoying this dip with veggies like celery and capsicum for a mid afternoon snack. It is strange for me, because I have never…

My Turn (for us): Easy Shrimp Dip in Bread Bowl


I have a sweet friend that always made this Shrimp Dip in a Bread Bowl and was kind enough to share it. This shrimp dip is made with cream of shrimp soup and cream cheese with fresh green onions and slices of ham to make a great flavor combo. It's great for any tailgating party or New Years Eve. I love the presentation in a scooped out bread round but it can also be served in a bowl with crackers on the side. It is easy and one of my favorite dips! Easy Shrimp Dip in a Bread Bowl 6066577…

How To Make Your Own Basil Pesto

Look I don't want to alarm you, but I have my own herb garden. With actual herbs. That are still growing. Even though I constantly forget to water them. Look, here's a visual... That's basil. And it's handy for all sorts of things, but my favourite thing to do with it is turn it into fresh, home made basil pesto. I know. I'm gardening AND whipping up my own pesto, which I've been enjoying for lunch lately with a serve of crackers and a side of fresh fruit. Yep, I'm pretty much a free range…
