Jaysee, Waikouaiti.

Being an oily ragger myself I stopped buying shampoo nearly three years ago and now just wash my hair in warm water while showering. But once a week I beat an egg, pour it onto my hair and massage it into my scalp. Result – lovely soft and bouncy hair. Follow that with a vinegar […]

Quiches are easy to whip up anytime, and you don’t need pastry to have one. For my family of 6 we like having mini quiches.  Just chop up finely half an onion, fry with a bit of crushed garlic and oil. Place in greased muffin pans, add a bit of grated cheese. Then in a […]

Egg replacement powder (great for egg allergies, but cheap as well!). It’s cheaper than eggs and very convenient for meat loaves, pikelets, etc.

Duck eggs

“Peggy” from Whangarei is looking for ideas on the best use for duck eggs. “We have adopted a wild duck with one leg (which we named Peggy). Every morning she flies onto our lawn so we feed her with bread and corn seed. Peggy is returning the kindness by producing an egg a day – […]
