I just love Summer! I love the longer days, I love the sunshine, I love the heat but most of all I love the fresh seasonal fruit.
When my children started on solid foods I used to make these delicious cookies for them (they are great as finger food). Of course I ended up eating them too because they are delicious and super healthy.
I never really had a problem with my kids eating habits. They have always eaten cooked and raw vegetables without any fuss and love fruit. Recently though they have started to say they don’t like certain vegetables and refuse to eat them. I’m not sure why this is but I am putting it down to a phase and hope that they will soon snap out of that so called phase and start eating everything without fuss again just like they used to.
You are probably asking yourself what rabanadas are so I will start by explaining. Rabanadas are a sort of French toast and in Portugal we prepare it as a Christmas dessert. It’s one of my favourite Christmas desserts and my grandmother certainly made the best rabanadas ever. Fortunately for us, before she passed away she showed my mum how to make her recipe but it was never written down. This Christmas I decided it was time to learn to make my grandmother’s famous rabanadas with my mum and write the recipe down so hopefully I can one day pass it down to my own children and so on.
Last week I had the pleasure to make gingerbread cookies with my son’s class. I spent the morning at my son’s school surrounded by children and almighty mess! I think the children had a good time and I really enjoyed being the teacher for the day.
I have spoken about my love for roasted chestnuts before and was surprise to discover that many of you had never had them! My Mother always roasted our chestnuts at home and today I am going to share with you how she does it.
This lemon sponge cake is to die for and very easy to make.
A simple and heartwarming chicken stew makes a great family meal, particularly now the wether is starting to cool down. This One Pot Chicken Stew is very simple to make and oh so delicious!
This is a family recipe that I picked up from my lovely mother in law – who not only is Lebanese but also an excellent cook (see what I did there? I’m hoping this will get me some brownie points).
This recipe is very simple and it will take you no longer than 15 minutes to cook from start to finish.
