    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

    Puff Pastry Pies | Babyled Spreads Review.

    Babyled was founded off the back of basic parenting worries, weaning, Keith and his wife decided to introduce their new baby when it was time to wean to a mixed feeding routine of solid and purees, developing a spread that can be mixed into pasta or made into a little sandwich, Its such a unique way to deal with the cross over between BLW and Traditional weaning which usually is full of arguments on which one is best. Our weaning journey was extremely different, I found Robin to not be ready when it came time for her to wean into solid food, at six months she still had the reflex to push food out of her mouth when given some, We went down the traditional weaning route with purees that increase texture as she got older and a mixture of jars and homemade products. As she got older, we still had plenty of these early stage purees in the cupboard, which prompted me to create little pies or pinwheels that she or even Kai and Amelia devoured whenever I made them, So when I was sent these cute little jars of Babyled spreads I had to make some little puff… View Post

    Piccolo Puff Pastry Pinwheels

    ~ A while back I won some of these wonderful Piccolo pouches from a competition that my beautiful blogging friend Becca at My Girls and Me ran, we got given loads of these wonderful pouches, but Robin is now a little bit to old for some of them, she does enjoy the fruity ones and my creativity has turned a few of the savory ones into pasta sauces but I wanted to try something a little different and with the help of some puff pastry that I forgot I had in the fridge, I made these. ~ Puff Pastry Piccolo pouches of your choice egg or milk Its a pretty simple recipe so there isn’t much to it, roll out the puff pastry to a size that you want, depending on how much you want to make, roll out more.. spread the pouches contents onto the puff pastry, making sure that you are covering it and leaving a little space at the edges to help prevent spillage, roll up into a cylinder shape and cut that up into inch wide wheels. Place into a preheated oven at 180 for about 20 minutes, depending on how crispy you want them to… View Post
