I admit that it looks like I’ve photographed a bowl of potpourri -my photography / food presentation skills are a work in progress! The only thing I can say is that these vegetable crisps are so delicious that they were wolfed down before I got the chance to do another photo shoot. To be honest, bub only had them as a snack twice – Mummy and Daddy ate the rest over a glass of wine and a few games of Boggle (ooh it’s an exciting life we lead!).
What do you do when life gives you a massive lemon? Turn it into scrummy yummy muffins, of course!
So, this is my second post where I take to the kitchen and experiment with the aim of providing ‘healthy snacks’ for bub.
My 13 month old has a great appetite and I am always looking for new ideas for snack time. Like many, I am keen to make bub’s food from scratch so I know exactly what he is eating and can keep salt and sugar intake to a minimum. It can, however, be a struggle and I often find myself reaching for a pouch or rice cakes just because they are so convenient, especially as we spend a lot of time out and about. It is hard to prepare and keep food fresh in hot weather and it is even harder when we are travelling!
I love baking. I bake for friends’ birthdays, for engagement parties, for school and just for fun. I even baked my own wedding cake along with other tasty treats. Dan and I managed to turn his family home into a food factory!
