    Local Newspapers in English Here is one example of a local newspaper that is also edited in English. You can pick up several newspapers like this for free at various shops or petrol stations around Malaga. Knowing the stories and the protagonists does help to understand the articles.
    The Local News and features about Spain in English - well-written and entertaining, in my opinion anyway.

Supercook asks you what you have in your fridge (er.. one measly carrot and a chicken leg...) and will give you dozens of recipes based on what is available; try it out and find that cooking does not need to be expensive!
