My favourite recipes of 2012 included an easy, homemade, chocolate cake (and by “homemade” I mean made-in-my-home but not from scratch) and a complete breakfast we had for dinner. Kid-friendly and le simple – you will love these recipes…
Betty Crocker and I spent many an afternoon together creating the best ever chocolate cake. Using her mix cut my measuring and pouring time in half allowing me to make the most of nap time. TIP: add in chocolate pudding to make the cake more dense. And yes, I passed this cake off as my own at potlucks and tea parties – why not? It was homemade (see my definition of homemade above).
I switched up this Ham and Broccoli Quiche Recipe by deleting the ham, finely chopping the broccoli (the kids don’t like chunks) and baked them in mini muffin tins for 25 minutes. I was so tired of having the same foods for dinner (and the same fight over kids not eating the four food groups at one meal) so I declared “breakfast for dinner” night and served these mini Quiche with baked peameal bacon. Complete dinner WIN that evening.
Life is busy…cooking shouldn’t be!
