Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Popovers

    • wester on September 03, 2010

      This is sure to become a lunchtime staple. So simple, all storecupboard ingredients, delicious, and my daughter loves making them.

      Unfortunately, these popovers didn't 'pop' for us. The recipe didn't heat the butter in the muffin tins before pouring it it; maybe that was it.

  • Blueberry pancakes

    • wester on February 18, 2014

      Pretty basic recipe for American-style pancakes. Everybody liked them. The recipe says it should make six pancakes - I doubled the recipe and I got nine, even though I used exactly the amount of batter it suggests.

  • Noodle soup

    • wester on February 18, 2014

      The children love to cook this and love to eat it. For the adults it's OK too.

  • Salad bar

    • wester on April 23, 2013

      Madelief (6) says: jammie!!! (yummy :-) ) This was a lovely idea, the children could choose from lots of options so there were plenty of nice ones. A relaxed summer lunch or dinner. Also great when you have people with conflicting diets around. It looks good too, and it's very substitution-friendly. I used: lettuce, grated carrot, julienned bell pepper, diced tomato, sliced cucumber, croutons, cubed aged cheese, bacon bits. I did not add the apple juice to the dressing. I still want to try: other vegetables (including raw cauliflower), mozzarella, nuts, green herbs, curried dressing.

  • Hide and seek muffins

    • wester on September 03, 2010

      These muffins are good, and my children loved making and eating them. You do need quite small strawberries if you really want them to disappear into the muffin.

    • Wlow on November 12, 2018

      Just missed strawberry season so did bananas (and one with persimmon!). Muffin itself not exciting but cake-like and kid-friendly. Turned out tasting a bit like banana bread. Recipe fun for my 9-year old to follow from illustrated instructions, plus he was experienced enough to make the batter himself with guidance as well.

  • Chocolate banana shake

    • wester on September 03, 2010

      Almost too easy, very tasty. I used half unsweetened cocoa half sugar (because I never have sweetened cocoa and I wasn't going to buy it for this recipe).

  • Bright pink fruit dip

    • wester on May 19, 2012

      Very pink, quite tasty. After making this once, my kids keep pestering me to make it again. You have been warned.
