Slowly getting back into a rhythm of *proper* cooking. Everything went to pot (haha), rather, once I got really large and tired. Getting back to menu planning is one step to regaining some of our former rhythm and planning in advance (with a little wriggle room) is a good way to deal with cooking with a newborn – no last minute panics when inspiration fails to strike at the last minute.
Nin’s now a dab-hand at a basic sponge, so I’m trying to expand her repertoire (and mine) with a few new recipes, one of which was the Marmalade and Yoghurt cake (above). When you’re trying to stop family members picking up a chocolate bar, sweets (etc) when popping to the shops, it helps to have something sweet, but a little more ‘wholesome’ in (and having a menu plan also protects against popping to the shops in the first place!)
Does anyone have any favourite recipes they’d like to share? I’m looking for some more inspiration!
