Things to Make Tuesday: Four out of Five

28 Jun

So this last weekend we took ourselves off to the House and Garden Show in Durban  – I especially loved their Home Grown Section – a hall filled with handmade people – a little bit of heaven for me.

Anyway, one of the stands that we came across was selling the most awesome kiddies cooking accessories. Little aprons for boys and girls, the sweetest little wooden spoons as well as perfectly kid-sized chopping boards, with embellishments! I have to admit  it really was these items that first caught my attention – but we quickly got chatting and it turned out that the main item was in fact a recipe book ‘Four out of Five’.  Now, first things first – you’ve got to respect this Mamma – she’s got 5 children… published recipe book or not…

The recipe book – titled Four out of Five because each recipe had to get the thumbs up from at least 4 out of her 5 kids – a better panel of judges I’m sure you won’t get.

What I love about this book is the recipes are really simple, straight forward, healthy, and I don’t think will take too long to cook. (Let’s be honest, with 5 kids, this mamma ain’t going to be putting a cook book together where the meals take the whole afternoon to cook!). Did I mention that the recipes all look really yummy as well! Seriously…

So here’s my advice… if you live in Durban make your way down to the House and Garden show, otherwise, get in touch with this husband and wife team via their website here…. I really don’t think you’ll be dissappointed. (Did I mention that 15% of the proceeds of the sale of the books go to playground equipment for underprivileged pre-primary schools)



So on the note of cooking and kids, here are some more cuteness on the topic

Aren’t these cute little chefs from On to Baby really sweet! Nice idea for a birthday party to make your own pizza’s!

And how sweet is this play play kitchen area, from Desire to Inspire, below?

And lastly, don’t you just love this little vintage apron from Smashed Peas and Carrots. (Tutorial)

And for those of you that aren’t brave enough to get into the kitchen with your kids yet, there is always this option…
