Mini quiche boats
It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a recipe. And today I’ve got a good one! My kids love quiche but it can get a little boring so to mix it up I’ve hopped on the band wagon and tried them in the ‘stand and stuff’ tortilla soft shells. They’ve been a big hit mainly due to the novelty of the ‘boats’. Continue reading
Little slices of sweetness
Over the holiday season I was mulling through some recipes and websites and came across this one – garlic roasted sweet potatoes from Eat Drink Paleo. I love sweet potato but always seem to forget it’s sitting in the fridge drawer until it’s too late – soft, wrinkly uncooked sweet potato is not a nice thing to look at. Continue reading
Sweet Potato Fritters
Sweet potato is a vegetable I love but don’t eat enough of. I’ve been playing around with a few recipes and I came across this one from The Merrymaker Sisters. I altered the recipe slightly and only used 3 eggs as found the mixture was moist enough – depends on the size of your eggs. It is a great way to eat sweet potatoes and a really easy, fast recipe which is always a bonus. Continue reading

Family friendly pasta bake
I’ve had many (many!) requests for the recipe for pasta bake that I posted on my Instagram feed. Not only was it a great photo but a very tasty meal. I managed to hide more veggies than usual without the kids screaming ‘What is that green thing?!!’ Continue reading
Fried rice – an easy and versatile dish
I first posted this recipe in 2016 after my eldest started school. Below is the original recipe. Add in whatever veggies you have. I’m now adding broccoli as the kids eat it (once it’s not in big chunks!). For the eggs, I popped them in the fry pan and let them cook like an omelette. Once cooled I cut them into ribbons. The boys love soy sauce so I always put in another little dash before the final stir and taking it off the heat.
But everything else is the same. Serve it as a main meal, with garlic bread or as a side to another dish. Add in chicken to make it more substantial. The choices are endless.
I came across this recipe last year and have loved it ever since! It can be used for pizzas, scrolls and so much more! Our family makes homemade pizzas every Friday which the boys have come to love. They enjoy adding their ingredients which doesn’t vary much from pizza sauce, cheese, mushrooms, olives and ham/bacon. I also make pizza bites from this dough for school lunches – they’re just a smaller version of our Friday pizzas. Continue reading
