Hiding Vegatables

My girls love to find the occasional quiche and salad in their lunch box instead of a boring old sandwich…..Again!  And there’s next to no washing up with this one.  Bonus!  Make one large quiche, or bake in muffin tins to make them an easy addition to your lunch box. […]

Rainbow Savoury Muffins

I promised healthy recipes this week, and here’s a great, nutritious muffin to get you going in the morning, or at school.  It’s packed full of fruit and oat bran, and stays super-moist, especially if you accidentally double the apple and carrot needed because you are trying to do too […]
