Bakewell flapjack

The blog has become quite a foodie one recently as I seem to have done quite a bit of baking both with and without Andrew, and of course there was the Shrove Tuesday pancake fest! Last week we went to our local National Trust house and gardens, Anglesey Abbey, for the umpteenth time since we’ve lived here. We never tire

Milk-making flapjacks

As I was flicking through our Cook with Kids book by Rob Kirby, I came across a recipe for ‘super fit flapjacks’. Instead of just being oats, butter, sugar and syrup, these included various dried fruits and seeds. I didn’t actually have many of the fruit and seeds in the recipe, but it inspired me to make some flapjacks with

Choconana muffins

Baking a batch of biscuits or cakes seems to be a great form of toddler entertainment at the moment. As it’s pretty much dark by 4pm these days, we can’t make it to the park any more after Andrew has finished napping in the afternoon.

Oat and raisin cookies

It’s been a while since I baked or cooked anything. I found out when we went away at Easter that the smell of cooking is a definite trigger for me to be sick. I hadn’t realised at home just how much of a difference this made in the evenings, and it was only when we went out for dinner one

Soft oaty rounds (à la Organix)

A while ago I bought a few packs of Organix soft oaty bars for Andrew. They were on BOGOF at the supermarket, which made them a reasonable price, and they are handy to take out with us for a snack. He absolutely loves them, and they are so easy for him to eat. Organix have a ‘no junk’ policy, and
