MOST RECENT

5 years ago I had the idea of integrating education and cooking. The idea centered around good, wholesome food, that would help families make healthy choices together and help families create intentional time to spend together.
I've been working on a series of lessons the past few years. A little slower than I had intended but never the less, I continued.
The years were full and it wasn't all pretty roses and playdates. I had two babies, taught part-time, ran an organic co-op, made a big move away from home and so much more.
So although each piece of my vision will be released little by little, atleast today I can share with you a little piece of it.
I hope it inspires you to spend time with your kids in the kitchen. I hope it creates time to sit and eat together without other distractions. I hope these Mini-books teach something new to you and your littles. Most of all I hope you enjoy the recipies, the ideas I've collected here and, most importantly, I hope you enjoy the time you will spend with your kids.
One more thing....please...FEEDBACK! This is a work in progress that has just begun. Feedback from all you super talented mama's and mama chefs and mama teachers. It would mean so much to me!

✨CHOCO BANANA FAIRY CAKES FOR A TEA PARTY✨
-
Arthur and I whizzed up some cup cakes this afternoon for a couple of little friends who came to play. He insisted on chocolate. You can omit if you prefer a plain ol’ banana batter. I used coconut sugar and plain flour but you could use whatever flour/sugar combo you like, we often use wholemeal spelt. Because it was a tea party we decided to “ice” these babies with a cottage cheese & honey icing which was easy to make and very popular ✨

I feel it necessary to acknowledge that I am the world’s laziest baker and use my Magimix if at all possible. This doesn’t have the same outcome as using a bowl to properly beat things up but it is seriously quick, and I find it works well enough for speedy baked goods. -

The kids and I decided to make some pies today to pop in the freezer for an easy snack. What may simply look like a pie is so much more in an unschooling family. Learning is everywhere if you open your eyes. .

🍴KNIFE SKILLS🍴

We’re making comforting mushroom and spinach lasagne for supper today in stormy Sydney. This afternoon we all sat down together to cut up the huge pile of mushrooms required. Arthur is using a little kids’ knife that I got him recently. It’s from @foost.com.au and it’s the best! Bea likes to use it too, I had her cutting up tomatoes the other day and there were hardly any left once she’d finished nibbling. Great way to get them eating stuff they don’t usually try! I highly recommend getting one if your kids are interested in cooking with you. I think they make them for different ages/skills. This one is a little serrated one.

Zoodles for the Friday win!!👌🏼🍝🍴 *Note to self: zoodles shrink. #SauceOverload 🤦🏻‍♀️🤣 #OliverBlue #LearningInTheKitchen #HealthyEats

Literally a bit rough around the edges! But really rather good, super light, soft sponge. Next time I'll add some sultanas but then it would definitely rival the John Lewis cafe carrot cake (the bench mark I measure all carrot cake by!) @morrisons #bakingwithkids #cakekit #learninginthekitchen #autismmom #specialneedsmom #specialneedskids #ilovetobake

We are stepping away from Paul Hollywood for this creation. Tonight we are making #morrisons own carrot cake. This kit is doing the rounds with my family at the moment, so my lovely mum has brought us one to try. Just come out of the oven now so moving onto the icing shortly. #autism #autismlife #autisticbaker #lovetobake #learninginthekitchen #specialneedsmom #specialneedskids #visionimpairment #visionimpaired #autismmom #cakekit #bakingwithkids @morrisons

My little chef and I have been making granola bars from #marksandspencer #simplyfood I do so love trying something new together and he is enjoying it so much ❤️ #homeschoolcooking #learninginthekitchen #autismmom @marksandspencer

Ava’s baking.....Some are broken, some are burnt (mummy’s fault 🙈), some are just handfuls of dough instead of carefully rolled and stamped shapes.... but they are the most beautiful biscuits this mumma has ever seen 😍 #bakingwithtoddlers #cookingwithtoddlers #letherdoitherself #missindependent #learninginthekitchen #familytime
