Ben's Beginners - Promo - Cooking with the Kids

I'm sure you all know by now how much I love to cook with my kids, especially Jack who still dreams of running his own Pizza Restaurant one day.

Did you know that 1 in 4 parents admit they have NEVER cooked with their kids.

Every child that learns how to cook shares their new skills with at least one other person - and 92% use them at home. Cooking is finally going back on the National Curriculum this September after 20 years and I can personally say that I'm glad! Can you imagine a world where no one knew how to cook for themselves any more? Something like this.....


I do like that video! It's been made to support the launch of Ben's Beginners, the first online cooking channel, made for children. It's a great new YouTube cooking channel (launching today) which has a range of recipes, taught step by step with DJ BBQ, and some great tips from Child Psychologist Richard Woolfson, on how to encourage your kids into the kitchen.

from Ben's Beginners
Yesterday Jack and I cooked a meal for our family and Papee & Mamee (my dad & his missus) using a recipe from Ben's Beginners.  The recipe we used for was for "BANGIN' BURRITOS" and it worked out brilliantly! Jack (who is 6 1/2) followed the recipe without any difficulty and loved every part of the process, from getting the ingredients out, to the cooking, right through to serving up for the family and getting stuck in with putting his own burritos together. He was especially pleased with his Mamee and Papee thanking him for making their dinner and making a fuss over him for making something so tasty!



Tom, our 4yo, is itching to have a go too and we've promised him he can have the next turn at cooking something. We can't wait to see what we can catch on the YouTube channel next!

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on
