Where would we be without the great British staple of bacon and eggs? If we’ve ever feeling low in this house, that’s our go-to fill the frying pan meal! Me and the boys go streaky, Matthew has his weird veggie bacon, but we’re all happy I’ve taken the classic and i’ve made it into puff […]

Toffee apple pancakes

Toffee Apple Pancakes on Feeding Boys

It’s Shrove Tuesday this week, so I thought it was only right to come up with a tasty pancake filling idea for you to try. I’ve kept it super simple so there’s limited faffing about – cooking pancakes is a labour of love enough without lots of fancy fillings to prepare. I’ve used dark brown […]

Easy brioche recipe

How to make easy brioche rolls on feedingboys.co.uk

Brioche to me is one of those luxuries best saved for when you’re in France on holiday and want a freshly baked breakfast treat, or less romantically, the little sweet individually packed rolls that are perfect car fodder for the kids to keep them quiet on long journeys. Have I ever made my own? I […]

Cherry berry breakfast shake

Cherry and strawberry breakfast shake

We’ve found a secret cherry tree in the network of alleyways behind our house. It’s quite a tropical sight heavy with clumps of red fruit tempting the local parakeets in for a juicy snack. When the heat of the day had waned a little, Matthew took the boys, a step ladder and a carrier bag […]

Lunchbox bake: Carrot and pineapple muffins

I spotted these gorgeous fellas in this month’s Good Food Magazine and immediately thought they’d be perfect for Sam’s lunchbox and also for post-school munchies. They’ve got mashed cooked carrot in, along with pineapple chunks and juice and a healthy scattering of sunflower seeds so you can feel quite virtous eating them despite the fact […]

Sore throat friendly smoothies

Berry breakfast smoothie

Half term was somewhat blighted by illness in the Feeding Boys house, and for two hideous days my throat was so sore I couldn’t swallow proper food. Now that’s just miserable. End of. But to try and get some nutrition into my germ-ridden self I whizzed up some of these breakfast smoothies in the blender. […]
