A deliciously rich and comforting macaroni cheese.
This is an interesting twist on the classic that my daughter made at school. It has now become a firm favourite in our house.
Deliciously sticky, yet eminently sensible, flapjacks are perfect snack food. They're portable, they keep well, and the oats are a good source of fibre, which slows the release of sugar into the body.
Kids love it and it's easy to make. Also good if you add some chopped ham!
This is a recipe for home made play dough. It's ideal for toddlers aged 2 1/2 or 3 to have fun with. It's not for eating though.
Make your own crisps using your microwave! A tasty and easy alternative to bought crisps (not to mention alot cheaper). A mandoline or food processor makes slicing the potato into paper thin slices alot easier.
If you like flapjack, and you like almonds/bakewell, then you'll love this! Especially with your favourite jam. Eat as a snack or try it with custard. I used to have this type of thing at school served with custard. Couldn't find a recipe, so made up one. Yum! you'll be surprised. Please leave a comment or rate if you can. Thanks! Happy baking.
This is a delectable treat - a peanut butter and digestive biscuit base is covered in a layer of chocolate. A nice no-bake recipe to make with the kids. The hardest part is waiting to tuck in until the squares are chilled!
When sliced into squares, this traybake is like a portable apple crumble. A delicious and simple afternoon pick-me-up!
Naturally sweet and moist, these make a great addition to a packed lunch. They are also a good way of getting the family to try some more unusual grains and seeds, and add new healthy ingredients to the diet.
