    Hi There, great blog, very practical, thank you! Just wanted to say that instead of flavoured rice crackers, which many readers would feed their children thinking they were healthy, are usually caked in fake stuff, which can do more harm that good. Fake cheese, fake colour, and of course MSG disguised as numbers (flavour enhancers 600 – 650 generally covers it, plus hydrolysed vegetable protein, which is also a fancy way of tricking us mums!) A healthier version is plain rice crackers (sakata only have rice, oil, and salt) with a dip your child likes. You can even make your own simply (hommus, cucumber and yoghurt, beetroot) etc that can be great for using up left overs like that half a cucumber or carrot and tin of chick peans lurking at the back of the fridge. Just a suggestion that I have found useful for saving money and also reducing the amount of unhealthy food my kids are eating. Thanks!ReplyCancel

    I want to make a gingerbread house but none of my family like gingerbread. Do you know of something else I could use instead that will hold the form?ReplyCancel

    • No I’m not sure, but have just asked the question on the facebook page to see if anybody else has a clever answer for you JReplyCancel

        Hi, Instead of adding the ginger you can add a good coco and it will make a chocolate bread. Still tasty and holds its shape.ReplyCancel

      My daughter is a celiac and doesn’t like ginger either. we used a chocolate biscuit recipe and rolled it out thick (about 5mm) and it worked a dream. they made a house (which held until the 5yr old pressed a lolly onto it a bit hard), and men… they loved it.ReplyCancel

    I have a lot of recipes cut out from magazines, newspapers etc and need to organise my recipe book. Could I do this online? Is there an app or a better way of organising my recipes using the internet so I can add and delete as I go?ReplyCancel

    • Annalisa982

      Plan to Eat’ is an amazing online program I’ve been using for a couple years. It is so simple, and I can import recipes from any website – like this one – but have it all organised online just like a recipe book. I use it on my iPad or iPhone in the kitchen almost every day!ReplyCancel
