Puffins

Puffins: n, A pizza shaped like a muffin.

Let’s face it, cooking for children can be quite stressful. But what happens when you have to cook for more than one? So I thought I’d introduce ideas for children’s party food. I had this idea when I couldn’t sleep one night, it happens a lot. I keep a notepad on my bed side table, frantically jotting down ideas. I once made Cruffins, which is muffins made from croissant dough. So I used the technical idea but made Puffins instead. Pizza shaped like muffins, using puff pastry.

Ginger & Tomato Baked Cod with Lime Courgetti

For my next instalment of tried and tasted Tuesday, I’m turning to fish and the wonderful Abel & Cole. Honestly, I’m not comfortable cooking fish but this is so easy and absolutely delicious. This recipe even made my husband try courgette, after refusing at first and wanting rice. He reluctantly tried them before I was finished cooking and he was sold. We kept them raw too, so huge props to this recipe. We loved it so much, that we have eaten it again. I most certainly recommend it, ready in under 30 minutes and packed full of flavour. Healthy too, which I guess is always a bonus.

Chicken Curry

I have been adding the odd recipe to my Instagram stories for the little’s, but they have been so popular that I am making more effort to put some on the blog. After all, Evie’s corner is a place for food for children. I know a lot of parents struggle with what to cook, so I want to be here to help.

Red Prawn Curry

I love sharing my recipes, but for a long time I have wanted to share other people’s. I obviously get inspiration from others, just like I hope you do from me. So after debating for a long time-over a year, I have decided to start ‘Tried & Tasted Tuesday’. Where I will be showcasing recipes from cookbooks, food magazines etc.

One Pot Lasagne Soup

Happy Friday guys and welcome to autumn on The Mother Cooker, the start of comfort food season. I absolutely live for comfort food and I have been working on some super indulgent and tasty recipes to get you through the colder days. I know we aren’t quite in a cold front just yet, so I will continue to balance indulgence with lighter meals for a while longer.
