Once a week we sit down as a family and talk about what we loved about that week’s menu and what we want the following week. It has started to become a real family affair as both the boys are now preparing and cooking at least one meal a week. I am a sucker when it comes to stationery, so I have gathered together some fabulous free meal planning printables to share with you.
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 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.
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.
We love cooking in The Mad House. I really enjoy teaching the boys new recipes and sharing with them recipes that have been passed down through the family. I want to make sure that I leave them with a legacy of lots of delicious family recipes. I was delighted when Newcastle Building Society set us a ‘Customise Your Life’ challenge of customising your cookbooks with your top 10 family recipes as it spurred me on.
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.
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.
