Welcome to Mum&sons

My two eldest boys challenged me to start a cooking blog with simple recipes that we can cook together - and my youngest one has now joined in. I am hoping they pick up some cooking and photograph skills... or that at least they learn to design and run a blog.


Apparently bananas have a soothing effect, which is exactly what I need after we discovered yesterday that our system had been hacked. Just in the blog we got more than 2,600 hits from a single country (yes, that country). No point involving the police, since last time this happened (and despite my husband being in government at the time) they were so utterly hopeless that it was actually rather funny. Talking of funny, I am half-discussing with a couple of people about putting together some recipes with  funny anecdotes (not just about the police!!) that took place during the last five years. Not sure I will find the time to do this...but will definitely keep you posted.

For this recipe you need:
- two bananas
- half a lemon
- 4 table spoons of fromage frais or thick yogourt
- two table spoons of honey

Preheat the over at 175 degrees.
Mash the bananas (reserve three slices for decoration). Sprinkle the juice of the lemon on the bananas. Mix with the yogurt/fromage frais. Put it on a small baking dish or ramekin. Drizzle the honey on top. Bake for 20 minutes (we put it at the end for 1 minute under the grill to get a nice brown colour).

Unlike me, my children love both bananas and honey, so they like this for breakfast. It is really easy for them to do the whole recipe on their own provided you help with the oven.
