Haggis Three Ways

Burns Night is coming up this weekend, the day that Scotland celebrates its national bard. Many folk gather with the family and friends for a traditional Burns Night Supper – haggis, neeps & tatties, accompanied by various speeches and poetry recitals. Whether you want to go the whole hog, or are pressed for time but […] Read more…

Winter Jam

Jam making is something usually associated with the warmer months of the year, but it’s just as easy to make jam even in the midst of winter, and it just tastes better than shop bought too. These two recipes are really quick to make, and don’t involve peeling, coring, de-stoning or chopping ingredients for ages. Cranberry, […] Read more…

Flourless Chocolate Santa Brownies

My kids are still off school until Thursday, and we felt like a spot of baking this week. Nigella’s flourless chocolate brownies always go down a treat in our house, and we had most of the baking essentials sitting in the kitchen, except for one vital ingredient. You’ve guessed it – chocolate! Luckily, also sitting […] Read more…

Peppermint Creams

One of those quintessentially British things that for me belong to Christmas, are peppermint creams. Every recipe I found online included raw eggs, but I wanted the boys to be able to eat them too without risk, so I tried my own egg free variation. They were super simple to make, and the boys gave […] Read more…

Gluten Free Christmas Stollen

One of the things I really miss about German Christmas, since going gluten free, is Stollen. Making it yourself was always such a challenge: the tough yeast dough needs the better part of a day kneading and rising and kneading and rising, if you are lucky enough that it does rise properly. Too many times, […] Read more…

Roasted Root Vegetable Soup

So today, I have a very special ‘guest’ post for you. Oskar, my eldest, is doing something called the Junior Duke Award at school, for which he has to complete various tasks. One task was to cook a soup for his family for dinner, from scratch, which his dad filmed and made in to a […] Read more…

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…
