Easy Peasy Star Biscuits

So when your toddler asks to make star biscuits, you can’t really say No. I’m not a fan of my kids having too much sugar so we always are on the look out for ways to reduce the sugar content of our baking, here we have used just a little apple juice and it worked well. A plain biscuit but you could add spices to it and make it your own. The plain biscuits are good for weaning too.

I used a greek yoghurt topping so the kids could decorate their biscuits which they loved. You need to only decorate the ones you aret going to eat there and then. Store the rest in a tin and the topping in the fridge. The decorating was a good after school activity and make your own snack session.

Broccoli and Cottage Cheese Scones (Wheat free/Gluten free)

Total madness this weekend. I planned to do a vlog with Miss K. Just as we were ready to go J-boy woke from his “not long enough but I’m teething” nap. Not impressed. I’ve learnt that cooking with 2 kids is much harder than cooking with 1. You need 6 hands.  But he joined us anyway. He likes cooking with mummy‚Ķ. because it means he gets to stick his fingers in things, make a mess and eat! If you don’t involve your kids in the cooking I’d really encourage you to try it out. It’s not always the quickest, tidiest or least stressful way to do things, but Miss K now has a lot of basic cooking skills under her belt and it’s a fun activity for her. 

Cottage cheese. I must admit I’ve never been a huge fan on it, the texture is not to my liking and it isn’t quite creamy or cheesy enough. However my children love it, I am pretty sure they would eat a whole pot between them.  Where it comes into it’s own for me is in cooking. It works well in pasta dishes and can be used to make a super fast lasagne sauce. Post on that one to come. 

So in this post we used cottage cheese in savoury scones. These were a big hit for lunches this week.
