Who doesn’t enjoy a snack every now and then? Even if (or rather, especially when) you are trying to eat healthy. In our house we try to eat as little sugar as possible. That means limited fruit, dairy, carbs and starchy vegetables. But we do get cravings for something sweet from time to time, and these cookies then fill that gap nicely.

A firm favourite in our household, we love chicken wings in any form – baked, fried, in soup, on the braai. What makes it a real winner is how fast it cooks, making it perfect for those “I only have 30min until dinner time” days.

This dish is versatile. You can add sliced potatoes at the bottom, or if you do it in a casserole dish, uncooked rice (just add enough water to allow the rice to swell and cook). Leave out the beans, add a squeeze of lemon, some eggplant and baby marrow. Or substitute the lamb for butternut to make a vegetarian dish. So many options and all you need is your trusty oven-proof dish, about 15min of prep time and a 30min wait. As easy as that!

Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread, right? Right. At least, not in my books. A close second is the smell of onions and garlic frying, but bread – still takes the first spot.

The kids have been home now for close to 4 months. We have painted, baked, swam, beaded, you name it. The one thing that they consistently want to do? Help make breakfast.
