Hot Chocolate

What better than Hot Chocolate to warm up this season? Probably a funky hot chocolate!
For this month's Secret Recipe Club I was assigned Anne Jisca's Healthy Pursuit blog. I chose Anne's hot chocolate recipe since it seemed the ideal comfort drink for the weather and fun for the kids. My son enjoyed making funky designs with fresh cream over the hot chocolate.

Chicken in Spinach Cream Sauce

Like most kids, mine are very fond of chicken, but will wince at spinach. So here's something where they need to go through the spinach to get to the chicken! Some trick there!
I served this dish with red rice that they love to eat.

Carribean Fry Bakes (Maths with Kids in the Kitchen)- Guest Post

With great pleasure I introduce to you a very special guest- Caroline Mukisa from the Maths Insider blog. Caroline Mukisa is a mom of 2 preteens and 2 preschoolers. When not baking with her tribe, she runs the Maths Insider website where she shares tips and advice to help parents painlessly support their children's math learning. Caroline is an engineer, turned Maths teacher, turned kumon instructor, turned full time mom.
I happened to chance upon Caroline's blog when I was searching for resources to make maths fun for Joel. At Maths Insider I found not just a treasure trove of maths resources and tips, but I experienced a change of attitude as a parent towards teaching Maths. I simply love her  DIY Guide to faster times tables where she not only tells you 'how to', but even considers the learning style of the child! Be sure to check out Maths Insider blog for yourself.
Caroline, I am honoured to have you as guest and its simply a delight to see your kids enjoy as they prepare this dish!

Cheesy Spinach Farfalle

Farfalle or bow-tie pasta is my kids favourite shaped pasta. I prepared pasta today after a long time, needless to say that it was attacked when I had barely finished clicking the pictures. I was meaning to click some more pictures with shredded cheese on the top, however it was too late. Joel was back from school and he could wait no longer!
