Mini Pizzas…Top That! September 7, 2017


Perfect for freezing, so why not make a few dozen at a time. Perfect snack for when the kiddies come home from school or for us as a quick lunch. Also the kiddies might like to add their own toppings. These are so simple & only need a few ingredients.




English Muffins

Pizza sauce or Tomato Puree or BBQ sauce

Grated Mozzarella

Assortment of cooked meats (I used cooked ham but you could also use cooked sausage or pepperoni)

Assortment of vegetables (I used mixed red/green/yellow peppers & diced onion but feel free to add any veggies you & your kiddies like)

Chilli flakes (optional)




Line a few baking sheets with parchment paper. Slice open the muffins and line them up on the baking sheets with cut sides facing up.

Spread about 1 Tbsp pizza sauce over the surface of each muffin, then add about 1 Tbsp grated mozzarella.

Chop the vegetables & meats into very small pieces, then divide them evenly among the pizzas then add another Tbsp mozzarella.Β  Press down lightly on top of each pizza to help compact the toppings and keep them in place as they freeze. Freeze for about 8 hours, or until the pizzas are solid.

Once the pizzas are frozen solid, carefully transfer them to freezer bags for long-term storage. For the best results, the pizzas should be cooked and eaten within 3 months (not a problem in my house πŸ™‚ )

To bake the pizzas, take out the number you wish to bake, place them on a baking sheet, and let them partially thaw as you preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6 (about 7 minutes). Once the oven is fully preheated, bake the pizzas for about 15- 17 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the cheese is melted. Baking time will vary depending on your oven and the amount of toppings on the pizzas.

Fried Bacon and Cheese Sandwich June 13, 2015

Well I found a picture of this on Facebook and just had to try it.

You’ll need to make a cheese sandwich.

Bacon 1 Don’t use any butter, just cheese between two slices of your prefered bread.

Bacon 2


Put a small amount of oil into a frying pan and start to heat it while you wrap your sandwich.

Wrap the sandwich with bacon, covering the bread completely.

Bacon 3I used shortback bacon (as that’s what I had in the fridge) but I think streaky would work well too.

Place the bacon wrapped sandwich into the frying pan and fry each side for about 5 minutes, longer if you like your bacon very crispy.

Bacon 4Once the bacon is cooked, cut in half and serve, to yourself if your like me πŸ™‚

Bacon 5I could actually only eat half of this, but boy it was good!

You could also add tomato, onion, slices of sweet pepper or anything else you can think of with the cheese.

Funnel Cake 1Funnel Cake 2







I’d never heard of these before I accidently came across a recipe for them last week. So I had to find out something about them, this is what I found….Funnel cake is a regional food popular in North America at carnivals, fairs, sporting events, and seaside resorts. You can make them in 2 minutes & they are so good!




2 eggs

1 cup milk

2 cups plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

icing sugar (for sprinkling on top)

oil, for frying




In aΒ  large frying pan, pour oil to a depth of about inch. Place over medium high heat to preheat while you make the batter.

Put eggs, sugar, milk, flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until well blended and smooth.

Test your oil is hot enough by dropping in a small drop of batter, if it sizzles it’s hot & you can turn it down to medium.

Using a funnel, hold your finger over the opening and add Β½ cup of batter. Hold this over the hot oil and remove your finger, moving your hand over the oil in a zig zag or swirling pattern but making sure to criss cross over the batter multiple times in order to have cake connect. Continue until funnel is empty and then allow cake to cook until lightly browned on the bottom, about 1 minute. Carefully flip cake over and cook on the other side as well.

Once done, remove to paper towel lined plate and sprinkle top with icing sugar. Repeat process until all funnel cakes are fried, placing each finished cake onto it’s own paper towel lined plate.

Makes 4 – 5

You could also make lots of smaller ones.

I tried one with icing sugar sprinkled on it, one with strawberry sauce poured over it & (not pictured) one with fudge sauce. I now need to go on a diet! I have yet to try one with honey.

If your still not sure, YouTube it πŸ˜‰

Let me know what you put on yours πŸ™‚

Banana Sushi

Are you like me and don’t like the idea of raw fish? Then you really need to make these, especially if, like me, you’re a chocolate lover πŸ™‚


The name of it really tells you the ingredients you’ll need.

For one person, you’ll want 1 soft tortilla wrap.

Open it out and spread with nutella.

Place a banana on top of the nutella near the edge and roll it up, cut into four, there you have your nutella banana sushi πŸ™‚

I love them and think the kiddies will too!
