Mummy Blogger Knows Best: The Essential Cookbook

DAY 7 of 31 Days To Build A Better Blog

 is to write a link post (a link is the blue writing in this sentence). 

So, here goes… 

THE bloke in The Shed and I often have a race to see who can make it to the kitchen to cook first. 

Seriously. 

While we used to cook fancy, spicy or exotic dishes, the introduction of Princess Ella and Baby Holly has seen us experiment with simple, economical, but tasty kiddy-friendly meals. 

We’re hoping to share some of these with you as the blog grows, so make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss any of the scrumptious treats to come. 

In the meantime, here’s a virtual cookbook based on some of the best mummy blogger recipes in the Aussie blogsphere. 

If I had to develop a bloggers cookbook, this is what it would look like. 

MUMMY BLOGGER KNOWS BEST: The Essential Cookbook

STARTERS

Pumpkin Ravioli from Home Grown Mama

I think the final photo says it all. A great recipe for when the garden is abundant with pumpkins.

Homemade Sushi from Cooking For Oscar  

This one’s from a mum dealing with a child with food intolerances, making this recipe a masterpiece. 

LUNCH BOX IDEAS

Mini Impossible Pies from Diminishing Lucy 

A way to get something interesting and nutritious into the kids’ lunch boxes. As Diminishing Lucy describes, it’s “quiche without the pastry’’. 

MAINS

Chicken Stir fry with seasonal vegetables by Planning With Kids  

There had to be a stir fry in here and this is the ultimate. 

Zucchini Slice from Three Li’l Princesses 

This has been our most viewed recipe to date and the most cooked item in the kitchen of late. 

Lamb Shanks in Tomato Chilli Sauce from Writing Out Loud 

Lamb has to be included in this cookbook, so here’s a gorgeous recipe from Megan. This one’s ideal for the slow cooker – our favourite kitchen `gadget’. 

Spinach, Fetta and Sundried Tomato Strudel by Vegan Mamma 

There are other recipes on Vegan Mamma’s site that are describes as “the most popular’’, but we couldn’t go past her latest recipe. 

Pad Thai Noodles from A Dose of Dannie 

Our household just loves Thai food. It was a real treat when we stumbled across this recipe. Delicious. 

BAKING

Devil’s Food Cupcakes from Cupcakes of Kensington 

We have to include something a little naughty for the kids _ and this has to be it. 

DESSERTS

Best Ever Chocolate Ice Cream from Because I Said So 

No cookbook is complete without a chocolate delight. And it’s double-y good if that happens to incorporate ice cream. 

Peach and Raspberry Iceblocks from Hey Bambini 

This is just a fantastic way to get fruit into little tummies, while keeping the kids cool this summer (yes, surprisingly, it gets hot in Tassie!). 

So, what’s your favourite dish? Or is there something you think should be added to our `virtual cookbook’? Share your thoughts.
