I once read an article declaring that hummus, the once-humble peasant dish of crushed chickpeas and tahini, is the UK’s best-selling dip – in fact, the Brits get through 12,000 tonnes of it a year. Which really came as no surprise: at one of the first Ladyland editorial meetings we had at least three varieties plonked on the table and thereafter had to make an effort to introduce other exotic treats from the Waitrose deli aisle into the mix.
This is the season for ripe blackberries and bored children on summer holidays, so I decided to bring the two together yesterday to make some easy and delicious berry tarts. The result was an excellent day of foraging, playing, cooking and eating.
Are your children bored now that the summer holidays are coming to an end? In this household, it’s definitively getting harder to keep them occupied! So here is a quick “recipe” that will keep most bored kids happy for quite a while: DIY lollipops!
A little bit of holidays in a ball of coconut, or as we call them in french, Coconut Rocks! You can still find these in local bakeries across France, usually in a pyramid shape. They are dead easy to make and only have 3 ingredients!
