Looking for a pie that creates its own crust? Impossible you say? Well I have the recipe just for you, bacon herb and cheese impossible pie. This pie is perfection, yes not only does this little bacon studded number create its own delicious layer of delectable pastry buts it super simple to prepare and can be ready for the oven in less than fifteen (make that less than 5 if you opt for ham instead of bacon).
Getting children to eat and enjoy vegetables is quite the challenge. With Grace my tactic thus far has been to add serious flavour to her blanched vegetables and my weapon of choice of late has been pesto. I keep jars of basil, pea and sundried tomato pesto nestled in my fridge, happily waiting to be poured of vegetables and pasta. I also love using this wonderfully fragrant, zesty and delicious Italian sauce as a salad dressing or spread over grilled chicken breasts.
Polenta chips are a recent delicious discovery of mine and Grace loves them! I’m one happy mama serving these up to bub because they’re a far healthier alternative to potato chips and far simpler to prepare, no laborious peeling required! YAY!
Dinner or lunch for mum, dad and bub on the table in 10 minutes. Heaven.
Welcome to my lovely little lunch box, celebrating tiny food for tiny tots! As a first time mummy I am delighted to be introducing my daughter to a world that I absolutely adore…the world of food. Witnessing the classic expressions sprawled across her face as she takes her first bite of what surely is an exciting and exotic new flavour makes my heart smile and melt all in the one moment. I am constantly blown away to see the pace at which her enthusiasm and appetite grow, quite often faster than her very own motor skills, but somehow and not so surprisingly she manages the most basic of human instincts, that of ferrying food to mouth. I am beyond thrilled to be sharing healthy, nutritious, easy-to-prepare, simple, fun and most of all delicious food with you and your family! So as we enjoy our food adventure together please join in and share your experiences, thoughts, recipes, lunch box ideas and food philosophies! Let the fun begin!!!
