- Party Plate
Having some unannounced guest over in this season of holiday and celebration? You can whip up a delicious platter without breaking the bank.
Arrange some of these ingredients on a platter and you will have your guest talking about your hosting skills for months: biltong, pretzel sticks, nuts, Camembert/Brie, grapes, figs, olives, apple slices, pomegranate, Melba toast, cherry tomatoes, guacamole, hummus and some micro herbs (to make it fancy).
- Home Remedy
Activated charcoal is trending. What does it do? For under R30 at local pharmacies, activated charcoal can cure a hangover, help with nausea and diarrhoea, it can be used as a natural cleaner and body detox and is often used as a teeth whitening remedy. This is definitely a must-have.
