Cooking with the kids – no mummy blog is complete without some kitchen FUN!

The last couple of days we’ve been busy in the kitchen as well as doing our normal schoolwork and household chores.. (pictures to come- in true mum style its after midnight and my phone is dead- no battery  🤭)

I love cooking and try to pass the love on to my kids right now most of them love cooking and I find it interesting how my eldest enjoys cooking mains, the next one enjoys making desserts and i’m sure my eldest son can chop a salad for England! Its amazing seeing how their personalities slot in so well together. So without further ado here’s a few of the desserts we’ve made in the last week please do try them and comment on how can you make them even better -for example we’ve tried Rice Krispies with melted marshmallows on top too  👌 👌🏼  

Rice krispie treats

I’m sure everyone’s made Rice Krispie treats many many times so here’s a reminder for some of you and a yummy recipe for those of you who haven’t yet come across this tasty treat…

  1. Melt the chocolate
  2. Coat the Rice Krispies
  3. Spoon into cake cases
  4. Refrigerate for at least 30mins
  5. Enjoy!
Nothing looks yummier than a bowl of melted chocolate

BAnoFFEE

We also made some yummy Banoffee – shout out to my friends Sadaf and Mishal who introduced me to this slice of heaven on Earth. Also a good way to use up overripe bananas without making banana bread (-you’re welcome!)

  1. Smash up digestive biscuits, mix with some melted butter
  2. Open a can of ready made Nestle caramel and warm it up slightly in the microwave
  3. cut up some bananas
  4. Place a layer of biscuits at the bottom, a layer of bananas and then a layer of caramel
  5. Refrigerate for at least 15-20 mins
  6. Add a layer of whipped cream just before you serve it – Enjoy!

Apple CRUMBLE

  1. Crumble together approx 3/4 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  2. Peel and chop 4 medium sized apples (granny smith or pink lady are really good for this)
  3. Melt some butter in a pan and add the apples
  4. Then place the apples at the bottom of a baking dish
  5. Cover with the Crumble mixture (from step one)
  6. Bake for 40mins on 180 Celsius
  7. Enjoy with a side of ice cream or custard whichever you prefer

Corona Virus Pandemic

Everyone is talking about the current world problem – The dreaded Corona Virus, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the crazy shoppers who are taking all the toilet rolls off the supermarkets shelves like there’s no tomorrow!

There is some sense in buying some essential shopping items – in case you need to isolate yourselves for a few days if you experience the common symptoms such as cough, cold, flu accompanied with fever. Better to be safe than sorry… the one thing to take away from this post amongst the myriad of advice out there is…

Wash your hands frequently

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY
