Incredibly this site has been running now for 18 months and I am amazed by how popular it has become. I wanted to thank everyone so much for their support and I wouldn’t be able to keep coming up with new ideas if I didn’t get such lovely feedback and comments from all my MMM friends. We now have over 7,000 Facebook followers and lots of others who follow the site through email which is astounding. The site now has over 150 recipes and I know that sometimes some of the older ones get a bit lost so I thought today I would go a bit retro and re-post some of the most popular and asked about recipes. Hopefully it will inspire lots of you to keep on enjoying some of the old favourites.
This was my first ever recipe on this site and on my Facebook group. It is without doubt the most discussed recipe and I get so many people sending me photos of their flapjacks and comments about how much their kids love them. I make a batch every other day as Little Lady has a slight obsession with them!
This is my second most popular recipe. I get asked about it ALL THE TIME! I created it when I had some leftover couscous and didn’t want to waste it. Since I created it I have added in all different kinds of ingredients like salmon, cod, tomatoes, broccoli etc but I always like the original best. One thing I have to say though is – COOK THE COUSCOUS FIRST!!! I have had numerous people asking why their muffins are crunchy and on further investigation it seems they haven’t cooked the couscous first.
As I mentioned when I posted this recipe this was amended from another recipe for a Weetabix cake I found online but no matter how many times I attempted it I just couldn’t make it work. So I came up with the idea to make some sort of a biscuit instead and the Yummy Chewy Biscuit was born. The only problem with this recipe is that I love the biscuits so much I hardly have any left after numerous ones accidentally fall into my mouth!
This was one of the first recipes where I saw the original on TV and amended it to make it sugar free. I really wasn’t sure if it was going to work as it contains no flour at all but somehow they turned out great and I have made them lots of times since and each time they taste delicious.
This recipe is so great as it can be served in two ways – as a fishcake or as a mash so works for spoon fed babies or those who use cutlery (not my child!) or those who prefer to eat finger food. Since coming up with the original recipe I have also used tuna and other veg too and these also work nicely.
I found the original of this recipe online but as usual made some changes to it to “Myminimeal” it up. I always have a stash of these in the freezer as they are so great for a snack or breakfast. If we go out for the day I take a couple of frozen ones in my bag and by the time my kids want a snack they have defrosted. I have also added in chocolate chips, cranberries and chopped nuts too since the original recipe.
I have my lovely friend Debbie to thank for this recipe. She made delicious burgers for my kids and I stole her recipe but I just couldn’t make it as well as she did so I amended it slightly and they turned out great. Mr MMM even asks me to make them for him now as he likes them so much and we have decided that turkey mince “Any Mince Burgers” are definitely our favourite but The Boy likes the beef version best. Little Lady isn’t fussed which version she gets as long as she gets whatever her big brother is eating!
I make this ALL the time as it’s so easy and quick and we all love it. I have even managed to persuade The Boy to try it and he did so without gagging or looking like I had poisoned him although he refused to eat more than one spoonful. I have also made it with beef and turkey and it works well too. I also once added in potatoes and Mr MMM declared it “as good as one he had in a restaurant once” (big praise from him!) so that was a success. Yum!
