I love how the French take something simple like a blueberry pie and turn it into a blueberry¬†galette,¬†which looks so rustic, yet so delicious. And you know it’s going to taste good, even before you take a bite. The blueberries on top can be easily replaced with other berries of your fancy (or others, like peach, rhubarb, plums etc) and the dough is slightly crumbly, but manageable by tiny hands. It’s a type of shortcrust pastry, if you wish, so feel free to adapt the recipe if you have a shortcrust combination of ingredients that works for you. This recipe … Read more

Baby’s chocolate – the easiest dessert ever

baby's chocolate - baby weaning dessert or snack

What contains banana and avocado, can be done in less than 5 minutes and looks like chocolate?   Baby’s chocolate.   It is called that way because it looks a bit like melted chocolate when done, even though the taste is not quite the same as real chocolate.   It is also the quickest and easiest dessert or snack you can make for your little one when you have run out of ideas and you happen to have an avocado in the house (cause we don’t always happen to have one, don’t we?).   And if you’re doing baby led … Read more
