Meat Filled Triangles and Sausage Rolls

A simple recipe today but one that my fussy Miss 5 loves in her lunch box. She is increasingly fussy that I am surprised we actually end up with anything in her lunch box each day! Surprisingly she still loves pastry and it has been the one constant thing that she will actually eat for […]

Quark or Philly Caramelised Leek Dip

After a recent trip to the markets, my husband, Jimmy and sister-in-law returned home with some locally made quark cheese.  Knowing quark is suitable for the failsafe diet (if you can have dairy) we had always wanted to try it on the kids to see they would like it… anything to increase our repertoire of […]

Jelly Cups

What is it about jelly that kids love? Fun food, it wobbles, looks funny and brings a smile to any face. I keep getting requests to make jelly.   For some reason I have always put making jelly in the too hard basket, why I have not idea… it’s so easy! I have also had […]

Hungarian Fried Potato Bread

Hungarian Fried Bread or Lángos as it’s called is a fried bread made with mashed potato. I was in Hungry when I was about 19 and unfortunately I can not remember ever having one of these (though that was a long while ago now and the memory is not very vivid any more, lol!). It’s kind of nice […]

Meatloaf is one of those recipes that has been around for ages, it was a recipe I started making for my son many years ago when we first started the Failsafe Diet. I had a favourite recipe I found from somewhere and converted to make it suitable for the diet and have had it saved […]

Crunchy Chicken Bites

In my quest to get more protein into Miss 3, I came up with these two recipe ideas for chicken. They are quick, easy and versatile. It is basically the same mixture, just used in different ways. The Chicken and Philly cheese mixture is also great as it is and is perfect for spreading on to sandwiches and […]

Chicken Filled Buns

My favourite bread recipe is the Thermomix Herb and Garlic Pull Apart Bread. The Pull Apart is amazing, incredibly yummy and so much better than a bought one any day! I have been making the dough from this recipe and using it for rolls with yummy fillings inside. This is a fantastic lunch box idea. […]
