It’s Not All Mary Poppins


As part of my suddenly-burgeoning passion — yes, it’s reaching the point of passion — about children and Real Food, I decided that the time has come to expand what I cook with the children. We will not limit ourselves to muffins and cookies! Boy, have we expanded our horizons: pesto, galette, gazpacho, stew.

We started off easy, though, with these:

Cheese crackers!

It was fun — just like cookies, only savoury!

And they were good. So good that I forgot to take pictures of the finished product. Not that they stuck around long. The tots got theirs when we cooked, and when I went to package up the remainder, I discovered my own ‘children’ (almost 19 and 23) had descended. Nothing but crumbs remained on the cookie sheet.

  1. Recipe please!

    In between the first and second pictures, where it says “Cheese Crackers”, that’s a link to the recipe we used. Have fun!

  5. I clicked on the link to get the recipe (above -cheese crackers – in blue writing). Weren’t those owl biscuits just gorgeous!! I never thought to make gelatto, how clever! Off to find a recipe to make next week on cooking day.

    I think that burying those two small words between two large pictures made it easy for people to miss them entirely. Good for you, for spotting them!

    I’ve mislead you, though. I can’t make gelato! ‘Galette’, as described by Julie in her most excellent cooking blog, is really just a “free-form pie“, and in our case it was a vegetable and cheese pie. Gelato? Is well beyond my capabilities!! Also, we have a local — SUPREMELY EXCELLENT — gelato place. This is one case where what you can buy is infinitely better than you could make!
