    Despite the fact that my two young children go through picky phases, they have decided that they both LOVE this pasta. DS especially can't get enough of the stuff & I am very happy as it's a healthy, filling meal suitable for all the family. I use the wholewheat tiny pasta shells (sold as conchigliette) but you can use any small pasta really. We like to serve this with a green salad & crusty bread! This is also a nice dish to pulse in the blender for older babies.

    Recipe #388056

    Here is the second of my Algerian bourek recipes. I have also posted a Chicken & Preserved Lemon Bourek recipe. This cheese & potato bourek is another of my family favourites & there never seem to be enough! You can use phyllo dough instead of the spring roll sheets. You can also add a few finely chopped olives in place of the gherkins. If you're not familiar with making bourek, have a look at the NA*ME Fourms Bourek Demo:

    Recipe #387203

    This is the traditional bread of every home in Algeria, hence it's name which transaltes into English as 'Bread of the House'. Every home has a different version & this particular recipe is from my lovely sister in law 'Um Youcef' ;) Just a word of warning, if you have never made this kind of bread before, you will be shocked at how sticky & hard to work with the dough is. Unlike a regular bread, when your dough is too sticky you may add more flour - here adding more flour or semolina will make things worse...instead add a little water & knead gently with your fingertips . Water will always make the dough come together & away from your hands & the mixing bowl. You can also knead the dough in a KA or similar mixer with a sturdy dough hook.

    Recipe #387136

    This recipe is one of my family's all time favourite meals. We used to make this with ground lamb or beef but decided that it was healthier (& just as tasty) to use chicken instead. You need plenty of fresh crusty bread to mop the delicious sauce up with. Sometimes I double up on the meatball ingredients & freeze half of the prepared meatballs to make it easier next time I cook this dish!

    Recipe #386762

    My family loves fish & chips from the 'chippie'.....but recently it has become far too expensive & we have been dissapointed a few times by the quality of the food. So, here we have the recipe I came up with to satisfy the family when they fancy fish 'n' chips. You can use any white fish fillet you prefer. I like to cut mine into 5" strips so they cook quicker & fit a bit better in my small fryer! If you have any batter left over, it makes great onion rings too......

    Recipe #353612

    Tiny Tacos is another fun recipe for kids to make from Mollie Katzen's book 'Salad People & More Real Recipes'. Kids really love making these as they are tasty & simple to make.

    Recipe #374917

    This really is a rainbow! Let your kids have fun in the kitchen making this delicious, colourful & healthy cole slaw. From Mollie Katzen's book ' Salad People & More Real Recipes'.

    Recipe #374918

    If you like garlic then you will probably love this chicken! This is a really simple way to cook chicken but it's really flavoursome & the chicken is moist & tender. You can use any pieces of chicken for this recipe in place of the whole chicken. In summer this is great on the BBQ. 'Farrouj' means male chicken in Arabic - they are said to be tastier than the hens but you can use any chocken with great results! Time to make doesn't include the 3 hours in the fridge.

    Recipe #326849

    Annabel says "Making your own Healthy Junk Food is one way to encourage fussy eaters to eat better-quality food. Adding tomato chutney to burgers gives them a delicious flavour. My children love this burger recipe. Serve them on their own or in a bun with some salad. Red meat provides the best source of iron and iron deficiency is the commonest nutritional deficiency in children A lack of iron will not only make your child feel tired but can also lower resistance to infection." These burgers are suitable for freezing, you could easily increase the recipe and do some OAMC cooking.........

    Recipe #330217

    This recipe is for lovely tasty fish pies that appeal to young children (apparently this recipe is one of the most popular in a large UK nursery chain), they come under the 1-4 year category in Annabel's book. Annabel says " The high levels of omega-3 essential fats which are vital for brain function and can also help the performance of dyslexic and hyperactive children. Our brain is made up of 60% fat and eating the right fats, omega-3 and omega 6 fats found in fish and seeds makes us smarter. Ideally you should try to include two portions of oily fish a week in your child’s diet. Its good to make these in ramekins so your child has an individual portion that looks attractive." These pies are suitable for freezing, so you could double increase the recipe & do some OAMC!

    Recipe #330215

    We make pasta salad quite a bit in our house & this is definitely one of our very favourites. The kids wolf this down! It is great as a light lunch, a side dish, on a picnic etc. You can add ingredients or change them round to suit your tastes or what you have on hand.

    Recipe #354225

    This is very popular with my kids, although I admit that I don't always make them in individual portions. We always add the peas & use half the sugar called for. Sometimes we add a little finely chopped celery too. Annabell says about this recipe "Lentils are a good source of protein and iron for vegetarians and green lentils make a savoury and satisfying base for this shepherd’s pie." These freeze well so you can double up on the recipe and do some OAMC cooking.

    Recipe #330457

    This is our family recipe for the very traditional Algerian dish tli tli. You can make tli tli with chicken or meat - the meat recipe is slightly different & I will post it later. You can use any tiny pasta for this but traditionally homemade tli til pasta OR orzo / bird's tongue that is used. My kids love it when I use the tiny stars or shells also. Traditionally we steam the pasta for this but you can cook it for 4 minutes or so in plenty of lighty salted water before adding the sauce - the pasta needs to absorb quite a bit of the sauce so keep it undercooked..

    Recipe #354340

    A very quick and easy dish - cheap too - only 65p per person! You can take this on picnic for something different.

    Recipe #232079

    These cheese scones are sooo tasty! My mum originally got the recipe from a Be-Ro recipe book around 20 years ago but I still make them for everyone. My 5 year old son is always asking for them and even doubled up we never seem to have enough. These freeze REALLY well and are great for picnics, trips, packed lunches etc.

    Recipe #232156

    This is the famous or should I say 'infamous' Lancashire Hotpot - just one of the things that the UK is well know for food wise... This is a quick and easy recipe for the hotpot. Enjoy!

    Recipe #232453

    Serve hot or cold for a tasty vegetarian snack. Great for picnics, packed lunches, kids meals etc. PLEASE NOTE: THESE ARE BEST GRILLED/BROILED. Spray them with oil & under med/high heat.

    Recipe #232161

    Ready in 30 minutes! A really yummy soup of Thai influence. Since posting this recipe I have cooked it many times & it's now become a firm favourite. when I make it these days I make the following changes: 1. swap 1/4 tsp homemade harissa for the chilli's 2. swap 1L water mixed with 2 chicken stock cubes for the 800 ml stock 3. only use 1 tsp sugar, swap 250g fresh rice noodles for the 300g egg noodles 4. use extra curry powder 5. use oyster sauce in place of fish sauce. I also cook it for about 8-10 minutes longer so all the flavours really meld well.

    Recipe #232172

    A hearty, spiced soup which is especially good during Ramadan. This harira is a family recipe - guaranteed to be AUTHENTIC! This harira freezes very well so can be made in advance and frozen in portions (a big time saver!) so good for OAMC. Kids tend to like it as it has no bits for them to identify and moan about too.

    Recipe #232333

    These cheese scones are made with sun dried tomatos which is a beautiful combination. You can also swap the tomato for black olives for something different. When cooked properly, these scones are slightly crispy on the outside and lovely and fluffy in the middle. Open them up when still warm and put butter, soft cheese etc inside or have them plain as they are just as nice! These scones freeze very well & are great for packed lunches and picnics etc.
