RECIPE | Broccoli & Tomato Muffins
These savoury muffins are always a hit with my three boys, I started making them when I was weaning Ted as they were good finger food. You can change the vegetables if required. They are great for picky lunches, to go with soup or for picnics. They can be frozen so I usually keep some in stock, defrost the night before and hey presto, when you get them out at your picnic all your friends will be impressed at what an organised mum you are!
- 1 small head of broccoli chopped.
- A handful of cherry tomatoes
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 225g of plain flour
- 140g of grated cheese
- 160ml of milk – I use whole milk now but if it’s for weaning a young baby you can use formula milk.
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
2. Cook the broccoli until tender, I usually steam it and then mash it up with a fork.
3. Mix together the flour, broccoli, cheese, tomatoes, oil, beaten egg and milk. The consistency will be a moist, sticky dough.
4. Spoon into a 12 hole cake tray.
5. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden.

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
GREAT GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM | He’ll love this immersive Crime Scene Investigation Experience in Yorkshire
Anyone who fancies themselves a bit of a sleuth. If you’re an armchair detective and work out “whodunnit” before Poirot even twiddled his moustache or love watching real crime documentaries then this CSI Experience in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire is for you. Vouchers don’t have to be bought in pairs but I would say that to get the most out of the experience you’d be best off going with likeminded, crime-fighting friend.
If you love food and don’t know Sheffield very well then the Kelham Island Food Tour could be the one for you. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, filled with many tasty delights whilst discovering new places around the much loved industrial part of town. The first time I ventured away from my city-centre haunts was shortly after finishing uni, when we discovered the Fat Cat pub and (more importantly) £2 pints of ale. It dumbfounded us that we’d never even heard of this part of town, so finding such an amazing place to drink after four years living in Sheffield was quite a late discovery!
I am a pub girl through and through and a glutton for a good, hearty menu. Forever hunting out new locations to catch up with my friends or to go for lunch with the family, so was super excited to discover this little gem situated in the beautiful Sutton.
