This week I had my oldest daughter Hazel in the kitchen. She was very excited to help Dad with dinner.

Whilst kids may take a bit more time and make a little bit more mess it’s so important to get them cooking as young as we can. This recipe is a great young starter as it involves mixing, frying and baking and gives them heaps of confidence to move onto the next creative dinner. Hopefully 🙂

Well done Hazel we loved it.
