I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately. We’ve all been sick in the Good Baby Kitchen household. The cold weather has gotten to us and we all came down with a bad case of the flu. I’m still sick and was ordered by the doctor to stay in bed for the entire week or risk pneumonia and other secondary infections.
Today has been the first day I even had the energy to sit in front of the computer. Albeit from my bed (thank goodness for laptops). I officially never want to see a tissue again.
I went into Molly’s childcare last week (pre-sickness) to help with some of the cooking and the wonderful chef there and I came up with this spiced rice pudding that we served to the kids for afternoon tea.
Fritatta is one of my favourite easy dinner recipes. It can be on the table in less than 20 minutes and is absolutely delicious with a big side salad.
It also makes for a perfect breakfast and lunch option too.
A lot of people often ask me if I don’t eat eggs or if eggs are bad for you because many of my recipes are egg-free. The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods in the world. They are a high quality protein and a great food to feed kids because the protein helps to support their growth. Eggs also contain folate, vitamin A, iron, zinc, iodine and omega-3s.
Lest we forget.
Today is Anzac Day in Australia. A day that we remember Australians who served and died in all wars.
The 25th of April also marks the day in which the first major military action was fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during WWI and the landing of Australian and New Zealand soldiers at Gallipoli in Turkey.
This year marks the 100th year anniversary of that landing in 1915.
I’m sure I’ve said it before but breakfast really is my favourite meal of the day. Often I’m thinking about what I’ll have for breakfast the next morning at night before I go to bed.
This berry nice porridge (sorry, just had to use that pun) is so quick and simple to whip up and makes for the perfect healthy weekday breakfast.
It’s one of my go-to staples for Molly, because she loves porridge for breakfast and can be on the table in under five-minutes.
We had Molly’s birthday party on the weekend!! I still can’t believe she’s one!
I love big parties and the buzz of friends and family enjoying good food and cheer. We had a big bunch of people over to our place for a BBQ to celebrate.
One of my creations for the party was this healthy sugar free fairy bread. It’s so simple to make and also is a great snack for morning or afternoon tea anytime of the year (who needs a party as an excuse!).
