Review: Mother Garden wooden play toys

Review: Mother Garden wooden play toys

Last December I came across a bazaar stall selling these adorable, wooden play toy sets imported from Japan. They were miniatures of things as birthday cakes, tea sets, stoves, and even an oven and a refrigerator. Since then, I’ve been obsessed with getting each and every one of the sets for my daughter. I’ve tried … Continue reading

Fish Sticks, a follow up

Fish Sticks, a follow up

SUCCESS! My inspiration post last week was baked fish sticks. And they were a huge success with my daughter. She loved them. She ate all three sticks as pictured above, and some of the vegetables. And she wanted some more! These are quite easy to make. I used cream dory – next time I’ll try … Continue reading

Spaghetti and Meatballs, a follow up

Due to an unplanned, last-minute out of town trip, I wasn’t able to make this over the weekend. I just quite made this for lunch today, and I’m dismayed that I managed to somehow bungle a fairly straightforward, easy-to-follow recipe!

But Jack’s mother doesn’t have all the ingredients at hand, so he has to help get the flour from the mill, egg from the hen, milk from the cow, and so … Continue reading

Chicken Pot Pie, a follow up

I had been so busy over the weekend that I almost failed to make these, despite declaring my excitement last week. The good news is I was able to squeeze in time to cook the filling Monday night, put them in the ramekins, add the topping Tuesday morning and have them for lunch on the … Continue reading

Inspiration for: Toddler Food: Whole Wheat Pancakes

Ahh, pancakes. They’re so easy to make, so filling, yet the regular made-from-the-box ones are so unhealthy and if cooked shoddily, taste little better than cardboard. Done right, though, and mindful of calories, they can be healthy, yummy, toddler food. They’re also great for no-mess, on-the-go breakfasts – not that I favor eating on-the-go, but … Continue reading
