    Don't make these all the time but when I am organised:

    - Ice blocks eg frozen fruit blended with milk/yogurt
    - pasta using eggs and flour
    - playdoh
    - yogurt
    - bake as much as I can eg cookies, muffins
    - basic sewing to re purpose old clothes
    - grow herbs

    Default Homemade

    I make pasta, it's sooo much nicer than the dried store brought stuff. I also make hummus, that's super easy and quick. But that's about it. I'm lazy!

    I make ice blocks too, usually from yoghurt and fruit.
    I have made my own coconut yoghurt too but haven't perfected it yet. Still trying.
    I make my own body scrubs. The most recent, for Christmas presents, is coffee coconut scrub. Good for puffiness, anti-aging, dry skin, cellulite and antioxidant. Smells amazing and uses up coffee grounds that would only go in the compost anyway. 🙂

    Coffee Coconut Scrub
    1 part coffee grounds
    1 part coconut oil (
    I found I didn't need the full amount of coconut oil)
    1 part castor sugar

    Mix ingredients into a paste. Store in an airtight jar.

    Basically mix until you have a nice paste. The castor sugar is so that you can use this on your face as well, however that does depend on how fine your coffee grounds are. I use coffee grounds which have already made coffee, but you can use them without having made a coffee first :-)

    I do keep mine in the fridge, but just note that this makes the coconut oil go hard.

    I make my own 'frozen goods' such as chicken nuggets, kievs, sausage rolls etc.
    Sauces never come from a jar.
    Ice blocks/ ice creams (although rarely...we don't eat them much)
    School snacks (one of my kids feels deprived that their food isn't from a packet)
    Washing powder.
