Kid Friendly Muffins

Kid Friendly Muffins

 

How many Mum’s out there have fussy eaters or Kids who are simply too ‘busy playing’ to eat or are just going through one of their “Oh I will only eat this for the next 6 weeks phase?” Well that’s my Little Gremlin. Fruit, cheese and the favourite….tomatoes are the flavour of the month. Which is fine, but I like to offer a bit of variety in the Kids diet….how can they eat the same thing day in day out and still love it? It boggles me!

 

It got me thinking, what can I make him that is nutritious, wholesome and tasty? A MUFFIN! What kid doesn’t eat muffins? So I had a look at what was in the fridge and whipped these savoury muffins up in less than 10 mins.

 

What you’ll need:

 

2 cups – self raising flour, sifted

 

80gms – melted butter, cooled

 

1 egg

 

1 cup milk

 

½ cup continental parsley

 

2 Sausages or meat of your choice

 

1 cup – finely chopped spinach

 

1 spring onion

 

200gms – Feta cheese, I used Danish Feta

 

8 cherry tomatoes, roughly chopped

 

10 Kalamata olives, sliced

 

Sprinkle of pepper to taste

 

 

 

How to do it:

 

Preheat the oven to 200C (fan forced) and prep a 12 muffin tray with light cooking spray.

 

Sift flour into a big bowl. In a separate bowl combine; parsley, spinach, spring onion, fetta, tomatoes, olives and pepper, mix until combined. Once combined fold the mixture through the flour.

 

Add butter, egg and milk and fold in until just combine. (The trick with muffins is not to over mix).

 

Once the mixture has come together, simply spoon the mixture into muffin tin. I like my muffins top heavy so I filled them up to the top of the tin haha. You could sprinkle some more feta on top if you liked before putting them in the oven.

 

Then bake for 15-20mins (depending on your oven) until nice and golden on top.

 

Let them cool in the tin for 10 minutes before you remove them to the wire rack.

 

They’re great fresh out the oven (obviously once cooled slightly), or as a snack the next day, eaten cold or heated up. They’re a nice healthy snack the kids will enjoy and you know exactly what’s in them.

 

And remember these can be adapted to whatever suits your little ones tastes – or yours! Believe me you will be munching on them too!

 

What’s flavour of the month at your place?

Easy Cheesy Garlic Loaf

Easy Cheesy Garlic Loaf

 

I usually get disappointed when I buy a garlic or cheesy garlic bread and it’s far from garlicky and cheesy! Very annoying given that when I am craving it…I am CRAVING IT! So to avoid disappointment I make my own. The best thing about this recipe is that you can adapt it to you taste and be quite creative. This is how easy it is!

 

You will need:

 

1 x Cob Loaf Or whatever loaf is your favourite
Butter
Fresh crushed Garlic
Cheese
and spring onions or parsley

 

Note: Use as little or as much of the ingredients as you like.  

 

Method:

 

– Preheat a fan forced oven to 200c.

 

– Melt the butter and garlic together so it’s pourable. Keep cheese and spring onions aside for now.

 

– Cut bread diagonally into 2 cm slices to within 1/2 cm from the bottom of loaf. Repeat cuts in opposite direction. Arrange cheese slices in cuts. Drizzle butter mixture over bread and sprinkle the spring onions over the top. Like the picture below.

 

– Wrap the cob in foil or you can simply bake it on some baking paper for 10mins. May need a little longer however, just keep an eye on it if you’re not using the foil method. You don’t want it burning.

 

Then you’re done! Let it cool a little and serve.

 

This Cheesy Garlic Loaf is great for parties both for kids and adult dinners, snacks. Use your imagination and create whatever you like. Try adding in some ham or bacon pieces, chives, herbs corn or try difference cheeses such as feta or parmesan….the list is endless.

 

What’s your favourite combination? Are you a Cheesy Garlic or Cheesy Herb person?

Ninja Turtles Sugar Free Party Favors!

Ninja Turtles Sugar Free Party Favors!

I let my children eat sugar to a degree, I believe there is a lot of hidden sugar in everyday food items so I tend to limit the sweets and processed sugar where possible. In saying that I allow my children to eat birthday cake and have the odd sweet bag from a party. Last year combined my children were invited to 32 Birthday parties, and everyone of them gave a sweet bag at the end of the party, after all according to my kids it is the best bit of the party.

This year I decided that I was not going to add any sugar or food  to my Sons birthday party bags, I didn't really want to spend money on junk party toys either, my kids look at them once and then they end up on the car floor on the way home from the party < am I right? 

My son is turning 4 and I was trying to think of things that the kids like playing with at this age, I came up with play dough, it is easy to make and keeps kids entertained. My son is having a Ninja Turtle party so  we thought what better then Ninja turtle play dough, kids will love it and will forget about not having a bag full of sweets!

2 Ingredient Pizza And Bread Rolls Dough

Make Pizza And Bread Rolls With Only 2 Ingredients!

It almost sounds to good to be true doesn't it? I mean who can make bread rolls or even pizza with only 2 ingredients. Let me tell you I was a little weary of making this recipe when I first heard about it, but I am so glad I did. I use this recipe all the time and has become my weekly go to for bread rolls and Pizza bases.

I am all for finding multiple uses of grocery items and I love that these recipes use Greek yogurt. I buy a big tub when I do the grocery shopping and I use it for breakfasts, baking  and dips it really is so versatile.

The mixture will seem a little sticky don't worry this is normal, once you pop on a floured surface it won't stick so much.

Give these a try they really work well, and let us know how you go!
