Do you like quinoa? Do you even know what it is? I am going to admit we are late to the quinoa party. It is a 50/50 split of love it and tolerate it here, but this delicious quinoa, apple and cinnamon cake is loved by the whole family and a great autumn recipe and a fab way of introducing quinoa to kids.
I regularly cook with my boys. Not always sweet things, but dinners too and one of our family favorites is this simple recipe for chicken fajita wraps.
I look cooking with my boys. When they were small I was determined that I would provide them with life skills and cooking was one that was key. I grew up cooking by my Mum’s side and I wanted the same for the boys. This Rhubarb Brulee Cheesecake is a twist on a classic New York cheese cake is a real crowd pleaser.
Bread on a stick, yes bread on a stick that you can cook over a fire or on the BBQ. Damper bread is an Australian food and has been a huge hit here. It is super simple to make and tastes ace.
BBQ’s are something that we love here in The Mad House. In fact we have them as often as the weather allows over the summer and all the men of the house love burgers. We have recently started making our own homemade burgers as they are super simple to make and you know what does into them
Who doesn’t love ice cream? We do in The Mad House and my favourite flavour is Pistachio and with this weeks cooking with kids ingredient being N for nuts we decided to have a go at no churn easy pistachio ice cream and wow, we were very impressed.
My boys are bottomless. They are both really active kids and eat pretty healthily most of the time and these mini pizza bites are a delicious after school snack or lunchbox treat.
We are currently enjoying Minion madness here in the mad house after watching The Minions last week. We all love the minions, we have done since we first saw Despicable Me. If you know anything about Minions then you know that our lovable sidekicks love bananas, so they are a big part of our Minions Milkshake.
Hello everyone. We are up to L with our A-Z of cooking with kids ingredients and this week it is Lemons. Lemon is one of my favorite flavors, but for kids it can be something of an acquired taste. This simple, and delicious Madeira Cake using lemon zest to give a hint of lemon flavor and it is a great cake to cook with kids as it is pretty fool proof.
Welcome back to our A-Z of Ingredients cooking with kids series. This week we are at K is for Kiwi and we have made or that should be Mini has made some delicious fruit smoothies.
Welcome back to our a-z of ingredients cooking with kids series. We are already at J is for…… Jam tarts.
One of the great things about getting your kids in the kitchen is the wonderful flavours and recipes it opens up to them. I find that both my boys are much more adventurous if they have helped cook the food and this is one of the main reasons I love cooking with kids.
Welcome back to our A-Z ingredients cooking with kids series. We are currently at H is for honey. As an added challenge this week, we were asked to produce a three course dinner for four on a budget of £20 by Ffrees. So I passed this over to Maxi who is ten and he certainly rose to the challenge in budgeting, buying and cooking us a fantastic Sunday dinner.
We have been trialing the BacoFoil Non stick for the last month and this post from cooking with kids in brought to you on conjuction with them. We have used it to line our trays when making out M&M Cookies and also for this delicious Tandoori chicken tray bake
We are at G with our cooking with kids a-z of ingredients and that means grape – grapes and cooking, well I was flummoxed! Well that is until I remember seeing these fab Frozen Fruity Yoghurt Bites over at Eats Amazing. So our Frozen Fruity Yoghurt Bites are made with grapes.
I love weekends and having the extra time to make a delicious breakfast and this fab basil and tomato baked eggs dish from Crumbs is certainly one for a lazy weekend breakfast or brunch and perfect for slightly older kids to make.
This shop and recipe for Oreo dirt desserts or chocolate mint puddings has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias We have been busy planting in the garden and to celebrate this I decided to make some Oreo dirt desserts or chocolate mint puddings. We have made dirt desserts with jelly worms in the past (I was first introduced to them in California) and this time I want to make them a little more adult.
We have been making the most of a fabulous week of weather here in the North Yorkshire for the second week of the school Easter holidays (hence the lack of posting this week)! Holidays for us mean lots of family activities and lots of cooking and eating together. With two boys aged ten and nearly nine I have to make my food stretch and with these hacks for leftover food you will never throw any food away again!
The aim of our cooking with kids series is to encourage the boys to try new foods, but also to build on basic cooking skills and provide them with a repertoire of usable recipes. Eggy bread is one of those simple recipes that I know they will return to a lot (they have already made it for breakfast three days on the trot).
We have been making homemade pizza’s as a family since the boys were small. It has become a tradition in the Mad House that Saturday night is pizza night and over the years we have perfected our homemade pizza recipe and now it is perfect and great for cooking with kids.
