Hi, I’m trying out some video recipes! Here is a recipe I found on YouTube by NickosBABYFOOD.

I think these muffins have great potential as lunch box snacks, as well as a way to get my children to eat mushrooms. Of course, you don’t have to use mushrooms and celery – you can substitute anything for those 2 ingredients. I’m thinking of trying red pepper and red onion. And of course bacon would work well too!

Serves 2

3 button mushrooms, chopped
1/4 cup celery, chopped
1 egg
2 English muffins (halved)
1/4 cup grated cheese

1. Pre-heat grill.
2. Fry up mushrooms and celery until soft.
3. Add egg and mix continuously. Cook for a bout a minute or until egg is scrambled.
4. Divide mixture evenly between the 4 half English muffins.
5. Top with grated cheese and place under grill until cheese has melted.


Hi there, this week has been hectic, so it is a quick post and a quick offering this week: Creamy Chicken Sauce which can be served on pasta, rice or baked potato.

Creamy Chicken Sauce
Serves 4


30ml oil
3 large chicken breasts, cut into small strips
1 onion, chopped
5 brown mushrooms, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
30ml flour
180ml chicken stock (warm)
375ml full-cream milk (warm)
250ml frozen peas, cooked
parsley to garnish

1. Fry chicken strips in 15 ml oil until golden and set aside.
2. Fry onions and red pepper in rest of the oil in the same pan for 2 minutes.
3. Add mushrooms and cook for another 3 minutes or until mushrooms are cooked.
4. Add flour, stir and cook for a minute.
5. Add the warm stock, stirring constantly. Stir in the milk.
6. Simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring frequently until the sauce is thick and cooked.
7. Add the cooked chicken and cooked peas and heat through.
8. Season and serve on rice / pasta / baked potato.
9. Garnish with parsley.

The beauty of this recipe is that the red pepper and mushrooms can be replaced with other vegies if the little darlings don’t like them! I struggle to get my children to eat mushrooms, so I’ve used courgette instead. Sweetcorn could be interesting to try too!
