I’ll tell you something that is a bit tricky – thinking of Halloween ideas in August. I know a certain Halloween-loving food blogger (Not Quite Nigella) who probably has her Halloween recipes planned by Christmas in July but I’m not that organised when it comes to occasions. After a lot of Googling and brainstorming I…

10 tips to save you money in the kitchen

10 tips to save money in the kitchen via www.clairekcreations.com

I’ll let you in on a little secret – I can be a bit stingy. Not in a really annoying way (ok maybe a bit) but I just hate wasting money. It pains me to see people wasting something that they worked so hard to make. I know ‘each to their own’ but I’m sure…

Best Ever Chocolate Brownies

Calling these the best ever chocolate brownies is a big call but one of the most qualified judges I know – my Grandma – gave them that title the first time I made them for her a few years ago. Since then they’ve been lurking in the blog archives gathering dust on their less-than-appealing photos…

I have never had a Poptart. Well not any time that I can remember anyway. I seem to remember Mum not letting us have them because she’d heard the filling gets ridiculously hot even when the outside is cool and kids have suffered terrible burns from them. I’d say that was her excuse but the…

In my kitchen – September 2015

This may just be my last In My Kitchen post for the year. Once Bubba number two arrives (please come soon little one!), I’m taking a little break to spend some quality time with my little people. Don’t worry, you won’t miss out. I have lots of delicious recipes scheduled to keep you going for…

Easy baked beans

Mealtimes have become a little bit of a battle around here recently. A certain little man has decided to start asserting his independence in the form of rejecting my food. Dinner time especially is quite the battle but it seems it’s mostly just for my benefit and he’s pretty good with Mum. His other food…

Lemon and blueberry baked donuts

It went a little something like this. Me: ‘I need to think of some good Christmas recipes to make for the blog before the baby comes.’ Will: ‘What about donuts they’re everywhere?’ Me: ‘Ooh good idea but I need a donut pan.’ Will: ‘Do you really need more kitchen things?!?’ Two days later, said donut…

Carrot, apple and banana muffins

When I was pregnant with Ollie I tried to be super organised. Well as organised as you can be as a brand new parent really not having the faintest clue what’s about to happen to you. I knew that we would be super busy and not have much time but I didn’t really see how…

Choc nut biscuits (gluten, sugar, egg & dairy free)

Choc nut biscuits (gluten, sugar, egg & dairy free) via www.clairekcreations.com

There’s a lot of hype about sugar at the moment isn’t there? I watched That Sugar Film a couple of weeks ago and found it so interesting. Did you know sugar is hiding in so so many processed foods, even baked beans? The movie is a bit of a human experiment and it totally blew…

Slow cooked beef pies with wholemeal yoghurt pastry

Meat pies get a bit of a bad wrap I think. The name seems to either conjure up images of dirty looking service station pies, wrapped in plastic sitting in those warmers that you just know have been there for a little longer than they should. Or on the other end of the spectrum the…

If I admit to something do you promise not to judge me? Alright well I am just going to tell you anyway. I am writing this, with a plate of chocolate crumbs sitting next to me on my desk. You see as soon as I sat down to write it, I remembered that I still…

In my kitchen – August 2015

In my kitchen this month there is a cheeky toddler. When Ollie was sick, he refused to sit in the highchair. We tried so many different ones with no luck. Now we know it was that he didn’t want to be around food because it hurt his mouth and it wasn’t the highchair at all…
