Banana Pancakes & Berry Platter

It doesn’t matter when I pick my boys up from nursery/ school – whether they’ve just eaten or not, they are always, ALWAYS hungry and begging for snacks. Sometimes I take the easy option, but sometimes if we have time I also like to go all out and make them a special snack. Like this […] Read more…

‘Kartoffelpuffer’ with Apple Sauce (GF)

One of my favourite German dishes, is “Kartoffelpuffer mit Apfelmus”. The “Kartoffelpuffer” are a kind of potato pancake, made from grated potatoes, and “Apfelmus” is basically just an apple sauce, which you traditionally serve with them. When I was younger, I used to visit my aunt in the country every Autumn holiday, and she would […] Read more…

Apple & Raisin Cookies (GF)

Summer holidays mean children begging for snacks all hours of the day. We try to keep it healthy with things like fruit, carrot stick with hummus, oatcakes with peanut butter etc but every now and then they’ll want a cookie (and, admittedly, so will I). These deliciously moist apple & raisin cookies are refined sugar […] Read more…

Review: Messy Me Aprons + Ketchup Recipe [AD]

As you may have gathered from all the recipes here on the blog, we love cooking and baking in our house and the boys love getting stuck in too. Baking cookies is their favourite, of course, but recently they’ve both also been taking an interest in helping to cook meals for dinner. So it was […] Read more…

‘Popeye’ Spinach Waffles

My kids are pretty good when it comes to eating vegetables. Most vegetables they like outright, some though they only like in certain ways e.g. only raw or only as soup (I think it’s a texture thing). Spinach is one of the vegetables that falls in to the latter category. My spinach and Parmesan dumplings […] Read more…

Blueberry & Lime Chia Jam

We’ve been trying to cut down on our consumption of refined sugar lately, and while we’re doing okay with snacks and baking (lots of excuses to try new sugar free cookie & cake recipes!), one thing we’ve struggled with is jam. We eat muesli, granola or porridge most mornings – we love us some oats […] Read more…

Lunchbox Muffins

We’ve gotten in to a really bad habit recently of packing ready made snacks in to my son’s school bag in the mornings – oat bars, yogurt raisins, fruit leather, that kind of thing. It was meant to be a once a week treat, but it’s kind of taken over and while they are mostly […] Read more…

Vanilla & Coconut Granola

Do you know what tastes better than a nice bowl of crunchy granola for breakfast? A nice bowl of home made crunchy granola! We love granola in our house, but many of the store bought brands are loaded with sugar (and/ or contain wheat which I can’t have), so I like to make my own. […] Read more…

Homemade Rhubarb Compote

There’s been loads of rhubarb popping up in our local fruit & veg shops. Last year we totally missed rhubarb season, so this year we jumped at the first sign of rhubarb and I made a big batch of yummy homemade compote that we’ve been dolloping on bowls full of Greek yoghurt for breakfast. Ingredients […] Read more…

‘Falscher Hase’ German Meat Loaf

If you’re looking for a way to use up those last leftover hard boiled Easter eggs, I have just the recipe for you! “Falscher Hase” – a typical German recipe which translates as “false hare” – is a special kind of meat loaf. It apparently takes its name from post-war times, when housewives cooking on […] Read more…
