This week’s recipe is one that I’ve seen in variation on so many blogs, but wanted to try it for ourselves. It took a while to track down the book I got the recipe from, but it was worth the wait, it’s packed full of speedy, but tasty looking recipes. I didn’t take any pictures […]

Cheese Scones #KidsInTheKitchen

By | August 20, 2014

One of my little extravagances if I pop into town, is a cheese scone from M&S, no butter or margarine with it, just on its own. Town trips are few and far between in the summer holidays as getting T beyond our garden fence is a challenge, he just prefers to be at home. So, […]

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

By | August 14, 2014

Fruit Pops #KidsInTheKitchen

By | July 27, 2014

We’ve been having fun in the kitchen today, a bonus for me that it involved a few giggles and some fruit too. Today’s recipe came from adaption of a feature in D’s Girl Talk Art magazine, it was entitled “Brilliant Bananas” but our version is more of a cake-pop effect, so we’ve called them Fruit […]

Banana and Choc Chip Loaf

By | July 22, 2014

One of my favourite childhood memories is baking with my Grandma, her sponge cakes and rock cakes were just lovely and if she’d run out of a particular ingredient, she’d put an alternative in and it would be fab! It’s something I want to experience more with T and D, especially as it’s a way […]
