How to remember absolutely everything!

Juggling work, children (or grandchildren), housework, paperwork, friends and family can be enormously challenging in our frenetic lifestyle where women can ‘have it all’.

The best way to keep track of everything is to keep it all in one place – in your diary.

The Dairy Diary has it covered:


Keep receipts, parcel return labels and shopping lists in the pocket at the front.


Make a note of the friendly plumber you found, your car insurance company, your national insurance number, etc. in the handy reminders section (there are lots of prompts to help you out).


Use stickers from the sticker sheet liberally through the diary, wherever you need a reminder: birthdays, hair appointments, vet check-ups and even when the boiler needs servicing.


Every time something occurs to you – write it down! It’s out of your head and recorded on paper and easy to find. That could be ideas for days out or future holiday destination, as well as meetings, events and appointments.


Of course, there are daily entries (Dairy Diary pages are week-to-view so it’s easy to glance at what your week looks like) but it also has a weekly reminders panel for general to-dos, meal ideas and thoughts for that week plus copious notes pages at the back.

You’ll even find a gift record, so you can jot down ideas for birthday and Christmas presents, as well as ensuring you never buy the same gift twice!

And not sure what to cook for dinner? Every week has a delicious weekly recipe to inspire you. And all have been triple-tested so you can be confident that they’ll work AND taste amazing.

Dairy Diary is available to buy now

Treat yourself (and a friend) to a beautifully organised 2022.

Checklist: Everything you need to reduce your food waste!

Planning ahead makes a huge difference in how much food you waste.

It can also relieve that supermarket-aisle-stress where you don’t know what you fancy so just throw into the trolley several different ingredients that don’t really go together, we’ve all been there don’t worry!

This relatively short checklist of things is all you need to reduce your food waste; planning is super easy when you have the right tools!

Start with your More Taste & Less Waste cookbook, it has chapters that allow you to take one main ingredient and make two or three different meals with it.

In addition to the stunning, tasty recipes it has lots of tips and tricks, so you have expert knowledge at your fingertips!

For the week ahead, pick out 5 recipes you’d like to give a try, grab your favourite pen and fill in your practical Meal Planner Pad.

Write down all the ingredients required on your handy tear-off shopping list – but don’t forget to check in your cupboards and fridge/freezer in case you already have some of what you need.

Buy the cookbook and meal planner pad together and save money!

More Taste & Less Waste, two years in the making!

Introducing the More Taste & Less Waste cookbook


You may not think about all the work that goes into producing a new cookbook, it takes us about two years to develop a concept into reality and many fantastic brains too! From recipe writers to testers, from designers to photographers, from editors to proof-readers and many more.

This year’s cookbook centres on the
notion of reducing food waste.

It’s an idea that rated very highly when we carried out our research back in 2019. Our brilliant milkmen and women that deliver Dairy Diaries and cookbooks to their customers love it too, a force that forms an important part of reducing plastic waste.

It is also very fitting that Zero Waste Week falls on 6–10 September! Giving advice to individuals, organisations, schools and communities on how to reduce landfill waste and save money.

Of course, help doesn’t stop there; More Taste and Less Waste will give you the tools you need to make it a lifetime habit and help save our planet one day at a time.

Take a look at a selection of recipes to give you an idea of the stunning collection of bakes, mains, desserts and snacks that More Taste and Less Waste has to offer.
