I had a great day last Saturday ‘being’ Tom Kerridge. Tom couldn’t make it so I was asked to take his slot and be the ‘big name’ for Saturday afternoon – no pressure. This went some way to make up for the fact that I was due to do book signings there but my lovely book wouldn’t arrive in time – another missed opportunity.
So with less than 24 hours to shop and plan I chose two recipes from my book 500 Baby and Toddler Foods – Beef Stroganoff with fresh noodles and Drop Scones with Blueberries, suitable from 9 and 12 months respectively. Went down a storm, tasted fabulous too and I had my glamourous assistant up on stage, Olivia, who comes to Saturday morning cooking club was dragged out of the audience to help, she was wonderful and we got her a huge round of applause at the end.
500 Baby and Toddler Foods has it’s own facebook page so please check it out, comment on it and ‘like’ it.
Does that sound like baby food to you? That’s how it should be, the whole idea is that the recipes are for the whole family to eat, yes you would need to puree it for little ones but they can still eat the same food so you’re not cooking different meals for the whole family. Life is too short, as a new Mum you need sleep, not stress.
