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.

When my friend asked me and my family to come along to one of the GRUB food fairs at Fairfield Social Club in Manchester I was a bit apprehensive at first. But now, I can’t wait to go back to the next one. A super cool venue, fantastic food and fun for the kids.
If you live in Halifax you’ve probably driven past Wainhouse Tower and not realised that for a few quid you can pay a visit and climb its spiral staircase. It’s “just” 403 steps to the viewing gallery (great leg workout) and there you can take in the stunning sights over Halifax and beyond.
Flashback to 2008 – Obama‘s been elected president, Britney‘s made one of her many comebacks, Beyoncé and Jay Z have tied the knot and I was merrily going about my life at uni when I was struck down with, what I later came to know as, a “Crohn’s flare up”.
