Apricot and chicken is a match made in heaven. Even the fussiest eaters will find it hard to resist the crunchy coating and sweet chicken flavour. You might want to make a second batch as these little roly polys will not last long.
This a much healthier version of a old favourite. It’s much lighter and doesn’t sit in your belly all night long. If you are gluten intolerant or on a gluten free diet change the pasta to a gluten free one. Easy!
Perfect for an Easter lunch this simple, slow cooked lamb shoulder is delicious and ever so easy… Moist and full of flavour, this roast practically cooks itself. It’s so easy …
My kids liked the flavour of this dish. They said the texture and the flavour was very nice.
The dish was not heavy, it was a light and tasty meal. Kids like the fresh taste and the parents like the lack of mess and how easy it is to cook.
The more I learn about health and wellbeing, the more important I believe buying organic food for my family to be. Now, that is not to say that this household is 100% organic, because it isn’t, however I am learning to prioritise the items I truly prefer to be as close to their natural state as possible
What’s wrong with having one meal a week that’s vegetarian? Meals like this go a long way, very cheap and good for you. It’s a great way to get those kiddies eating those vegetables without complaining.
I love beef mince. It is such a versatile ‘cut’ of meat. It is cheap, and defrosts quickly when you have left meal preparations to the last minute. I have lots of mince recipes that I will be sharing with you over the coming posts, and the one I am starting with is San Chow Bow.
All your kids will see when you present this meal is a bunch of delicious meatballs for them to try. What they won’t know is that they are full of nutritious goodness with added chia seeds, quinoa, and veggies. You can melt some cheese on top or serve them with spaghetti and a simple tomato and herb sauce.
We all love a one-pot-wonder and this is a lovely hearty meal for the whole family to enjoy. High in protein and carbohydrates, and low in fat you can enjoy this as is, or for a creamier rice, stir through some grated cheese straight from the oven.
‘Tagine’ is just a fancy name for a Moroccan-inspired casserole. They usually contain fruit such as dried apricots or prunes, so their natural sweetness often appeals to children.
Anything in miniature is cute, especially these mini Vol au Vents which your guests will be snapping up in no time! They are really easy to make, don’t cost the earth and are a great addition to a party! You can even pre-make the filling and keep it in the refrigerator up to 2 days ahead!
In my house we love tacos. It’s a great and easy way to get your kids to eat salad. I came up with this because my eldest daughter has food intolerances and I am watching my (and hubby’s) waist line. It was quick and easy for the kids to make their own because they stand up by themselves. Give it a try the kids will love them.
I know when I was feeding in the early days it was hard to get much done, these can be done very quickly and can be frozen for later. Fish is a great source of protein which is very important when feeding yourself and your baby.

This is my go-to lunch. Simple, tasty and healthy. All it takes is two ingredients and you have a quick, easy and light meal which is perfect served with a simple salad. Also great for kids as finger food (just be aware of the ingredients in your dukkah in case of allergies).
Chicken Pilaf is a dish most families tend to have on a regular basis, there may be a heap of different ways to make it, but we think Danni & Mel from Honey You Baked have nailed their version of the super yummy Chicken Pilaf.
This dinner is one of my absolute favourites – it is super easy, extremely tasty and freezes really well. My husband asks for it all the time and I have even served it for a Father’s Day dinner for my whole extended family. Everyone loved it.
Mini puff pizzas are a mix between a mini pizza and a cheese roll. This delicious snack can be mixed and matched with whatever topping your family enjoys, and the kids will love them in their lunch boxes as sandwich alternative.
This is one of my husband’s favourite dinners – he asks for it all the time. Which suits me because the meat is cooked on the BBQ and that’s his job! This salad is fresh and healthy, packed full of flavour and, best of all, it’s easy to make.
Not sure what to make for dinner tonight? Try these chicken schnitzel fingers, the kids will love them and you will love how simple they are to make. You probably have all the ingredients in the house too, so this recipe may even save you a trip to the supermarket.
