How to Cook Delicious Fried Food to Serve For Family Dinners

Written by Allen Brown Cooking for your family can be one of two things, a pleasure or a chore, sometimes it’s both! Whether you’re a family of three or you regularly cook for a group much larger, you want to cook something great for your group. Sometimes, though, fitting in a great recipe in an already busy day seems impossible. When it comes to cooking fried food, people often think there’s no way of achieving great fried food at home. Well, there is. You don’t need to head out to a restaurant for awesome fries

How school can influence your child’s eating habits

I remember being really excited to start weaning with Erin when she was a baby. I tried to make sure that Erin tried all different kinds of tastes and flavours, especially the foods that I don’t like myself. As a fussy adult eater I wanted Erin to be more adventurous with food and to not have the issues that I do. However, I think it was when Erin was around 1 she had a really bad case of tonsillitis and after that she pretty much refused most hot foods and we struggled so much to

My Experience Of A Dietbon Diet Food Delivery

AD | Paid collaboration I don’t think I’ve ever had a really good relationship with food and I know I should be doing a lot better than I am. I struggle with organising meals if they are just for myself and I sometimes can’t be bothered to prepare a full meal. I want something quick, filling and easy to sort out. Recently, after giving up drinking sugary drinks like Coca Cola, I lost a bit of weight but it put me at an awkward in between size. To try to get down to that lower

Dining Table Drama

Earlier this year I thought we had really turned a corner. Erin started slowly trying new foods again, finding a new favourite in chow mein noodles and generally eating well. I have no idea what happened but over the past couple of weeks things really haven’t been going so well. Just a few weeks ago I remember us sitting at the dinner table, having our usual meal on a Sunday, and things just weren’t right. One of the reasons why I cook the same thing on a Sunday each week is because it’s something I

Cakes For All Occasions From Sponge

AD | Gifted When it comes to birthdays or any other special occasion I just do not attempt to make a cake myself. I have never been good at baking so I would always rather buy a delicious cake instead of asking people to even try one of my creations. I was recently introduced to a local company based in Holt, Norfolk called Sponge who are an online cake company. They kindly offered to send me a cake of my choice to try out! Sponge offer a really good selection of both cake flavours and

The Shame Of Being An Adult Picky Eater

For as long as I can remember I have had a bad relationship with food. I don’t remember liking a range of foods as a child and honestly, we didn’t have the most varied of diets. My Mum worked long hours in a pub and we were never a well off family. ‘Proper’ home cooked meals weren’t really a thing in our house and if they were, I only sort of remember eating roast dinners. We did always go to my Nanna’s for dinner on a Wednesday and that would be the same kind of

Family Snacking With MadeGood’s Granola Bars

AD | Collaborative post We’re in the middle of the summer holidays and Erin is doing a really good job of trying to eat us out of house and home. Before she broke up from nursery for the summer I think I forgot just how much she can eat when she’s home for the day. At nursery she has two set snack times and a packed lunch that I send her with so I know that she’s having a balanced diet during the day. Now, when routine seems to have gone out of the window

Pre-School Eating Habits and Nutrition Worries

Last week I took Erin to the doctor’s for her pre-school appointment. I didn’t even really know that this was a thing. We got a letter through saying it was time for her injections and the receptionist on the phone said we needed a 20 minute pre-school appointment. I had no idea what to expect apart from the obvious injections. The appointment was more useful than I thought it was going to be though and I got to have a really good chat with the nurse about anything I was worried about. One of the
