I love this time of year! I love the weather getting colder and I especially love making delicious, filling and healthy soups. We often have soup as a meal and both my kids like dipping chunks of bread or scones into their bowls. Soup is a great and filling way of getting lots of goodness into your kids without them actually realising what is in it. Even The Boy likes soup and his favourite is his Mummy’s Chicken Soup who’s recipe I am afraid I won’t be sharing with any of you lovely people as it’s a well guarded secret! But I hope you enjoy these delicious soup recipes.
MyMiniMeals recently celebrated our 1st birthday and I was looking back at recipes I posted in the beginning. I realised that although I still make them a lot I also regularly make changes to them and so I thought I would show you a few ideas using old favourite but with a twist. Continue reading
I love looking back at my recipes and thinking of new things I can make. I get lots of people asking me for early weaning recipes and I admit, as my kids are way beyond that stage (and I did a lot of BLW style things for Little Lady), I am a bit out of practice wth purees. However I had lots of fun the other day making up two yummy puree recipes that are perfect for babies who are just starting or are established on protein. They are a complete meal in themselves as they have protein, carbs and veg so no need to serve with anything else. Continue reading
I love the free recipe books in supermarkets and today I came across this fantastic recipe for a Sweet Potato and Orange Cake. As it has no added refined sugar and used sweet potato it immediately jumped out at me and I knew I had to make it. As usual I didn’t have all the ingredients…

I have a few vegetarian friends and usually I just make their children some pasta with my Tomato and Vegetable Sauce or a jacket potato with beans. However I realised that vegetarian food doesn’t have to mean such plain and simple meals so here are 3 vegetarian burger / meatball dishes that are yummy, nutritious and easy to make. They are so delicious they would even tempt the biggest carnivore!
It’s Monday so that means time for another recipe from one of my lovely friends. Today it’s Sara’s turn with her yummy lamb casserole. Such a simple idea and so versatile for babies and children of all ages as you can tailor the consistency to your child’s needs. It does take a while to cook but it tastes so delicious and is great for all the family. Enjoy! Continue reading
I love pancakes and I have found so many great ways to make them – sweet and savoury. So I thought I would show you some of my favourite pancake recipes that as usual are so easy and quick to make and only need a few ingredients. They can all be frozen so I tend to make a big batch of them, eat some – I mean my kids eat some!! – then freeze the rest. That way you only need to take a couple out at a time, let them defrost then just either heat them up in the microwave or frying pan or pop them in the toaster! Such a great idea for snacks or breakfast and the savoury ones make a lovely, easy dinner. Continue reading
Following on from the success of my previous “7 Days of Lunches Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3” I give you – “7 Days of Lunches Part 4”!!. It’s been the summer holidays for the last 6 weeks so I have had The Boy at home a lot with me at lunchtime so what I am showing you are meals I have given both of the kids for half of the week and just Little Lady the other half (when The Boy has been at camp running around like a lunatic and eating far too much chocolate!). Also Little Lady has been teething so I have been giving her quite a lot of soft food as she really isn’t that interested in eating. But I realised these softer, mushier meals are prefect for those babies who are early on in the weaning process so I hope you find them interesting and useful for your very little ones.
I LOVE sweet potatoes. The Boy isn’t so keen (sigh). Little Lady pretty much likes anything. Mr MMM would probably marry a sweet potato if he could! I have given up trying to get The Boy to eat them but I use them a lot in my cooking so here are some great ideas using these yummy potatoes. Continue reading
I love cooking with lentils as they are so easy to make and are a great source of protein. They work brilliantly for vegetarian recipes and they are also a simple way of introducing protein to babies once you start weaning. With The Boy I only gave him one lentil puree recipe but with Little Lady I have been more adventurous and give her lots of lentils in all shapes and forms. Here are some of the recipes that she enjoys.
