Cooking with kids… the fun way!

Before I get to the cooking bit… I came across this most wonderful resource today about Australian birds, with free Montessori printable… so I thought I’d share! The quality of this blog itself is just amazing, as is her pinterest boards!


Now, about cooking! Look, I’ll be upfront, I really don’t get the whole masterchef kids phenomenon. Frankly it bores me to tears! We’ve been to the library and borrowed a few cooking books, tried a couple of things… yawn!

Then we found THIS book…

I gather there is a first volume… must go looking!

But seriously… if your kids have warped senses of humour… or are boys… I almost guarantee they will love cooking with this book! Forget perfectly presented dishes served up in style… this book has recipes for Plushnuggets, Tummyticklers, Boiled slobbages, A plate of soil with engine oil,Nishnobblers and much much more! You really can’t go wrong!

Having tried the delights of Butter Gumballs he has got ingredients to make Bean’s Cider and The Magic Green Crystal tomorrow. I tell you, the big kids have picked this up and are really excited about cooking for the first time!

We do love our Roald Dahl… what absurd fun! And who can go past Quentin Blake as an illustrator! You can read the books and chomp on the authentic food to go with it! Now, haven’t I just made your day!
