Nappy Changing Mat



My kids seem to destroy the plastic nappy changing mats that you buy from Boots or Mothercare or the supermarket & I get fed up of buying them new ones, so the challenge was there to make something difficult for them to destroy. When you have 2 in nappies it gets a lot of use as well.

Let's see how this goes...


My eldest came with me to choose the fabric, so after I'd finished it I couldn't get him off it, he wanted to lay on it all afternoon.

Spiderman Cafetiera Cosy


My husband wanted a cafetiere cosy to keep his morning coffee warm a little longer, so my challenge was set!

(Excuse some of the stitching it was a challenge & it's not exactly neat for the first attempt!)

VE Day

Our choir sang at a VE Day event today, so the challenge was to dress 40s style...

...did I pull it off?

Savoury Cheese & Raisin Muffins



We're trying to reduce our sugar intake slightly so thought I'd try and make some savoury things to replace all the biscuits & chocolate we seem to eat. These are delicious and the raisins adds a little natural sweetness.

Ingredients:

250g plain flour
3 1/2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
50g butter
1 egg
250ml milk
120g grated cheese
100g raisins

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 220C.
  2. Place flour, baking powder, salt and paprika in a bowl & mix together.
  3. Cut the butter into small pieces and using your finger tips rub the flour into the butter.
  4. Beat the egg and add the milk mixing together well.
  5. Add the milk-egg mix to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  6. Add the grated cheese and raisins and mix well.
  7. Place into cupcake cases or a muffin tin.
  8. Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins.

Serve with soup or a stew. 
Cut in half and spread some soft cheese on them.
