These are the questions asked:
Tell us about your blog
My blog, E L Feelgood’s Vintage is a lifestyle blog with a vintage twist. I blog about fashion, beauty, interiors, parenting teenagers and ways to save and make money too!
What supermarket do you prefer and why?
I have to admit to not preferring one over another – a cope out I know but I’ll tell you why. Trying to keep out food costs down requires a little work in that some items we get cheaper in Tesco, some in Lidl and others in Home Bargains. Having two teenagers in the house they snack a lot so Home Bargains and Lidl’s is the best for that and our main shop is Tesco. We use the delivery service as it’s cheaper than using petrol to go get them!
3 money saving tips for the kitchen
Use the internet to find options for meals using leftovers so no food goes to waste.
An expensive item you can’t live without in the kitchen and why?
Our juicer/blender, it’s difficult getting teenagers to eat fruit so we have a juice drink 3 times per week to make sure everyone in the house gets their vitamins! Although being money saving savvy, the juicer/blender was free in return for a review!
What is your favourite recipe?
My favourite recipe is an Italian one called Spaghetti alla puttanesca. A simple tomato and pasta dish with olives. Stunning with crusty bread.
What is your favourite kitchen gadget?
A simple splatter guard! We don’t often fry but when I’m making burgers they are best done in the frying pan. The splatter guard is a must to stop the hot fat burning my hands!
Who or what inspired you to cook?
My gran inspired me. I mostly cook traditional food that I was brought up with such as Irish stew, Irish wheaten bread, champ and sausages. Good food indeed.
