oh hello!

Back-to-school month is possibly the most frazzled one a family can have… frayed nerves, new teachers, routines out of sync and all this while finances have barely recovered from the holidays. Here are some sanity-saving tips to get you through the first few weeks: 1 Spend the money on personal labels. The cost of a label pack is negligible against the outlay to replace school uniform items and that fancy dishwasher-safe, BPA-free lunchbox. 2 You may have started out making lunchboxes in Grade R, but re-evaluate what your child can contribute to this process as they grow older and more capable. By Grade 2 or 3, your child should be able to start making their own. The same goes for covering books. What good were those art classes if they can’t cover…

YOU’RE MY MAINSTAY! I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your October 2019 issue. Running a family isn’t easy and there were many articles that spoke directly to me. A stressed-out family? Tick. A child struggling with friendships? Tick! Not to mention the recipes, which make me keep every single issue. Keep it up, Your Family! – Marie Nel, Dunkeld, Johannesburg OOPS! In the beauty feature about collagen in our January 2020 issue, we erroneously stated that FutureLife BeautiFood Nutritional Shakes cost R1 499.99 for a week’s supply. The correct price is R149.99 for a week’s supply. We regret the error and any inconvenience it caused. This month’s Star Letter will receive a SKNLOGIC product hamper worth R2 000! Polluted air, extreme weather and the stresses of everyday life all take their toll…

star letter

As a single mother of two, I’ve been motivated by your wonderful magazine for years. I’d like to thank you, in particular, for the February 2014 issue, which I’ve still got. My children had reading difficulties at the time and I found that issue’s Back to School feature extremely informative. I tried the tips it suggested to help my children and the improvement they showed in their reading and school marks was remarkable. They’ve remained independent to this day when doing their homework. That issue is for keeps – it will be a great reference for others I know whose kids may struggle, as mine did. I also love the school lunch ideas you always feature in the February issues. Thank you so much, Your Family, and keep up the wonderful work!…

Know your peppercorns Peppercorns grow on a flowering vine in the Piperaceae family. Pepper is the most traded and also one of the most commonly used spices in cuisines all over the world. When fresh and fully ripened, peppercorns are red – and these are a rare find. Green ones are the dried, unripe fruits that have been specially treated to retain their green colouring, for example, pickled and preserved in brine or vinegar, or freeze-dried. Black pepper is produced by cooking unripe, green seeds in hot water and then drying them, which creates a wrinkled, black skin. White pepper is the ripe fruit seed that’s removed from the thin, coloured skin. Ground white pepper is commonly used in light-coloured sauces and mashed potatoes, where it’s less visible than black pepper.…
