    Guys, it's ep 13(!), we are in our longest season of all time, but we're not caving in yet! We have lots to say! Lots about letting onions turn deeply sweet and brown, lots about film, a random cleaning tip you'll probs be impressed by, gifts that feel good, an umami bomb condiment, and a few spatterings about that thing we love to see, the tangles of female friendship in books and on screen.

Fun and very useful

I actually started cooking after listening to this podcast *miracles do happen* and I have also taken up a number of their book, clothing and product recommendations and have never been disappointed. The girls are very fun, interesting, and easy to listen to.

Highly enthused for Highly Enthused

I would listen to the Sophies recommend washing up liquid, they are so good. It's like sitting at the pub with mates, from the comfort of your own home.

Brilliant

I love this podcast so much. It’s the best motivation to go and buy/do something nice for yourself.
