Saving money with Ding Cuisine and a biscuit tin.


Hello Dear Reader,

There are two things that have saved me a whole heap of money are my microwave and this old biscuit tin. I

I try and have something sweet to have with a cup of tea and gluten free products are so expensive that I always make my own. When my children were young, every weekend, I’d make flapjacks, jam tarts and a fruit cake. I’d also make regular shortbread for them so they’d have milk and a biscuit if they were hungry before bed.

To make my gluten free shortbread.

250g gluten free flour

150g of butter

90g of caster sugar

1/2 GF baking powder

Rub in butter to the flour, add the sugar. 

Use your hands to form this into a dough. It’s very short and can easily fall apart.

Divide into two and roll out into two sausage shapes approximately 5cm across, they do spread. Then slice them, one cm thick.

Chill for 20 – 30 minutes.

Bake on a lined baking tray at 180 for 15 minutes.

My other money saving favourite us ‘ding cuisine’. I don’t always feel like cooking everyday and I certainly don’t feel like cooking on a Monday so I always plate up four meals and we reheat two the following day.

There’s plenty of meals that reheat well like casserole or ragu sauce. Here’s where I’ll hand this over to you. What do you make that reheats well?

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs x
