• Easy Breakfast Pancakes | Recipe

    Pancakes pancakes pancakes! who can resist yummy fluffy pancakes that are homemade, these are of course griddle cakes rather than the usual crepe cakes that we all know and love and of course make on pancake day. When I am feeling super lazy I often just buy in pancakes from the stores but this time I didn’t have any in the house, but what I did have was an abundance of eggs and flour, this is a simple recipe that I used to create these delicious pancakes, or so I’ve heard, mummy didn’t get to taste any of her creation but the children gobbled them up and left none for me! Ingredients – 135g Self Raising flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons of caster sugar 130ml milk 1 large egg 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Method – Sieve the flour, sugar and salt together into a bowl and in another bowl mix in the egg, milk and melted butter.  Add all the ingredients together and mix with a fork or whisk to make sure there are no lumps and bumps.

    Recipe | vegetarian pizza party!

    Not really a recipe, but we often have fun meal times which the children make their own meals, they love it and I enjoy it too because it just means that its unlikely anyone will be upset with what they have for dinner.. which as we all know is a common thing children go through. Tonights fun meal is what I am going to share with you today, Pizza Party! Now the last time we had one of these was New Years eve, my mum had come round to see us and help us shop for the bits we need, but unfortunately back then we couldn’t find any premade pizza dough and settled for some plain cheese bases to add our toppings on. This time however, and I know how to make my own pizza dough but decided for time and convience we would use Sainsburys premade dough and made them ourselves.   What you’ll need – One ready made pizza dough, or make your own. Tomato Paste. Cheese (Ours was vegetarian friendly) Toppings of your choice we used; quorn pepperoni and ham. What we did – I prepped the pizza dough for the children and turned on the oven… View Post

    Recipe | Whatever Is In The Fridge Spag-Bol | Vegetarian

    As you are probably aware, my 9 year old son decided to change up his diet and become a vegetarian, and while there are plenty of easy ready meals about I also wanted to make sure that he knew that he could have his favorite meals without the meat and not have them change much at all. One of my family’s favorite meals is spaghetti bologna, or ‘wormies’ as Robin calls them, it is also one of my favorite meals to make them because I tend to cook for around 500 people and there is always plenty left over for another meal the next day. With my Spag Bol, I tend to dig into my fridge and find any of the unused and unloved veg sitting at the bottom and pile it into the mixture so I decided to share with you what I made and how it came out. Whatever Is In The Fridge Spag Bol  Ingredients – Sauce 200g cherry Tomatoes One onion 2 Cloves of Garlic Two vegetable stock cubes Tomato Puree One tablespoon Olive Oil ‘Mince’ One courgette diced One Bell Pepper diced 2 Sticks of Celery diced Quorn Mince Method – To make the sauce… View Post

    Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup #blogtober

      This is by far my favorite of the soups out there, I cant remember exactly where I saw this recipe originally but it has been tweaked and made into something that I am going to share with you today. one large butternut two or three sweet potatoes onion two cloves of garlic two pints of stock, mine was chicken salt and pepper Cut and peel the butternut squash and sweet potato, I used pre cut veg as I got these from my local sainsburys and they were half off but if you get the full veg you’ll need to cut them up to about the size of a 50p but nice and thick, set them aside and chop up the onion and garlic cloves Cook them off for a little bit, add in the squash and the sweet potato followed by the chicken stock and let simmer for about twenty minutes. Once the twenty minutes are up, take off the heat and leave to cool before popping it into a blender. I like mine a little thick and gloopy so I don’t add as much water in, grab some of your favorite bread and enjoy. Until next time. Mummy… View Post
