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…

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…

Chocolate Easter Nests

Easter is getting closer, so today I have another sweet (literally) and easy little idea for you. I’m going to share how we made chocolate Easter nests for our German playgroup’s Easter meet-up last weekend.   Some folk make their Easter nets with shredded wheat, but since I need to avoid wheat and gluten we […] Read more…

GF Hot Cross Buns

Hot cross buns! Hot cross buns! One a penny two a penny, hot cross buns. If you have no daughters, give them to your sons. One a penny two a penny, hot cross buns. Easter is coming up, and as well as death by chocolate this means one other thing – hot cross buns! It’s […] Read more…

Mini Buckwheat Pancakes

Throw your hands in the air and shout “Yeah!” if you love pancakes! Well you’re in luck, as it’s Pancake Day today! How about doing something a little different this year, and making a whole plate full of mini pancakes?   This mini pancakes, a.k.a. blinis, are easy to throw together (though the recipe does […] Read more…
