    I like you Lauren google recipes on line – get a thought in my head and depending on if I want a quick recipe or not google for the best ways of cooking it. Must try your coffee muffins by the way my daughter and I love anything to do with coffee!!

    Was searching for a beef bourguignon recipe and stumbled across your site and with having a slow cooker think I will give this a try over the weekend (will add the brandy etc.. as like to cook with spirits from time to time – did so in my early years of marriage which is still going strong coming 24yrs – had to think there!)

    Will let you know how it turns out – if my plans still forge ahead and nothing untowards changes that. Also must share my guinness stew recipe with you which can also be cooked in the slow cooker quite similar to Beef Bourguignon – strange that different cultures can seem so similar.

    Keep up the good cooking.

    The mint used in the Netherlands must have been the
    Moroccan mint, which is also very popular in coffee shops here in Germany (Nana Mintze). I love it and have also tried making the Touareg version, in which the mint is submerged in strong Chinese green gunpowder tea.

    Hello, I grow lots of mint. Grow it in a pot in the garden because it is invasive. The more you cut it the bushier it finally becomes. I have some growing in the borders but it spikes up in the lawn and gets mowed. There are lots of varieties out there so grow a selection. Although they smell wonderful they do not all taste the same. Find one you like…. Regards
