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.
I know it might seem like a weird combination but this sushi is a real hit in our household. It’s a great lunchtime or snack option.
Sushi is a perfect first finger food and an easy way to fill little tummies. This version is made without seaweed and you can add other fruit (or savoury) combinations to suit your tastes.
Sushi also isn’t that hard to make, so don’t be scared off! It can be made and on the table within 30 minutes and that includes the cooking of the rice.
Breakfast is probably my favourite meal of the day. I’ve often eaten cereal or scrambled eggs for dinner out of complete choice and utter love of breakfast food.
I’m already thinking about breakfast tomorrow morning and what delicious creation I can devour.
Normally bircher muesli is an overnight thing. Which means preparation. Which, let’s be honest isn’t always completely practical. But take a deep sigh of relief because this bircher is still creamy and delicious and takes just five minutes to make.
It seems like this week is all about slices for me! But really who doesn’t love a good slice.
Although I have to confess, this egg-free, sugar-free muesli slice is only partly my recipe. The initial inspiration for this came from one of my friends who I’ve known since high school. She has an eight-week-old baby girl and goodness knows how she had the time to come up with a slice recipe while juggling a newborn, but she did and it was pretty darn amazing.
I just made a few slight changes and additions and she’s given me permission to share it with everyone here.
I love stewed fruits. This is such a great dessert or snack option and you can serve it to your family/baby in a number of different ways depending on their skill level with food.
I generally do half a batch pureed and the rest as shown in the photo above. It’s great for freezing into cubes and making for an easy microwavable breakfast with some yoghurt for those days when you’re so tired you feel like your eyeballs might fall out.
