Making pizza from scratch with my son

I was never much of a cook and I hated home economics lessons at school. I can still remember the disgusting vegetable soup I made at Middle School.  It wasn’t good.  There are still a million and one things I’d rather be doing than cooking, but I have progressed from the vegetable soup (soup in…Continue reading Making pizza from scratch with my son

Monkey will be 4 on Tuesday and he’s been used to watching me cook and bake all of his little life.  He loves helping me to make cakes (what a surprise) and gets very cross if I don’t let him do specific jobs – beating the eggs, whisking and filling cake cases etc.  It’s his…Continue reading Baking with Oven Pride
