Simple Gingerbread Men Biscuits Made With One Saucepan

Christmas is fast approaching, so it’s time for some Christmas baking to get us in the spirit of the season.  My eldest son loves cooking, and was jumping for joy to make some Gingerbread men, Christmas trees and Reindeer biscuits (he would have used every cookie cutter in my drawer if he was given the chance. Anyone fancy a gingerbread pirate ship?!)

This gingerbread men recipe is pretty simple, and the best bit about it is that it can be made with just one saucepan! Less washing up and more time enjoying a yummy biscuits.

3 Step Mulberry and Lemon Muffins Recipe

Muffins are super easy and super fast. No need for beaters or electric mixers. All you need is a bowl and spoon.

Mulberries are not easily found on supermarket shelves. They look similar to a blackberry, but longer in length. Once they have ripened to a dark black berry and have been picked, they don’t keep for too long. It’s best to use them up straight away – that’s if you haven’t eaten them all whilst picking them and have a dark stain on your mouth and fingers! Mulberry leaves are also the favoured food of silkworms. So if your kids bring silkworms home from school, you had better find a mulberry tree to supply you with the leaves!

Muffins don’t usually have icing on them. I’ve broken from tradition and included a cream cheese frosting (which does use a mixer) on these muffins, so I guess they’re a cross between cupcakes and muffins. If you don’t want to include the frosting, they are just as yummy without.

Finger-lickin’ Sticky BBQ Pork Ribs

This recipe is hot off the barbeque tonight. It’s a reflection of what’s in my whole family’s belly!

Pork ribs are one of my husband’s favourite meals. He has a mega marinade that he was given by a former colleague, but unfortunately I couldn’t use it because it contains a whole jar of peanut butter (yes, an entire jar). Our youngest son is still only 14 months old, so I haven’t tried him with peanuts yet ( not that I expect any allergies – I’m just being cautious 🙂 ).  So we turned to a sticky BBQ marinade instead – and what a treat it was. We definitely needed lots of serviette after this tasty meal!

The weather is heating up, so why not heat up your BBQ too?
