Pasta & Green Sauce

My youngest is really loving vegetarian food at the moment. It’s not anything we’ve pushed, and he does like his sausages too, but he’s been asking a lot for dinners with more vegetables, especially broccoli. So after our cauliflower pasta sauce from a while ago went down so well, I thought I’d mix things up […] Read more…

Vegetable Lasagne Kids will Love

So here’s a funny story: my kids are generally quite good about eating vegetables, but they prefer them raw not cooked, with a few exceptions. They claim not to like cooke carrots, and categorically won’t touch mushrooms. But when I asked my 4 year old’s nursery teacher what his favourite dish was at nursery, I […] Read more…

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…
