Friends with Recipes: Indian Squash Curry

I have known Kim since our kids started at the same school together in 2013. She is perhaps the most genuinely happy person I’ve ever met: her personality is contagiously bubbly and she is inspiringly optimistic. Honestly, I can’t say enough good things about Kim, but this could get long . . . instead, you can see for yourselves how her creativity and genuine love of life shine through via her business called Bumble Box. These “family time kits” are meant to get families moving, learning, and crafting together. Each box is so well though out and creative and perfect for families who want to add some fun and variety to their play together! (It is also great for grandparents, babysitters, and holidays!) Kim has shared some lovely thoughts about cooking for her family, as well as one of their favourite weeknight meals below!

Enjoy!

Friends with Recipes: Mushroom Stroganoff

I’m back with my first “Friends with Recipes” post in ages! This is the series where we ask you the reader to share your favourite go-to recipe with us. We’ve had everything from fish cakes to chicken enchiladas and all sorts of other great recipes in between. Please write me at bethie@hungermama.com if you have a recipe you would like to share!

Today’s recipe is from blogger and fellow meal planner Charlotte of Baking Betsy. She has shared a beautiful mushroom stroganoff with us that looks absolutely delicious! I hope you enjoy it!

Forgive me for not posting many of my own recipes recently. I have so many other things going on right now, and the first thing to go on the back burner is all the stuff I do for fun, like the blog! But have no fear, I have a massive backlog of recipes for you as well as some fun Friends with Recipes posts. This one comes from the lovely Lara who is another American in London. She blogs for Babyccino Kids and can be found Instagramming her gorgeous family here.

Friends with Recipes: Chicken Enchiladas

 

We have another beautiful meal from my lovely friend Nomi today! Her baked gnocchi recipe was super popular, and I have no doubt this one will be as well. Everything Nomi cooks, bakes, sews, etc. is so utterly wholesome and charming; I hope she keeps sending us posts to share!

Friends with Recipes: Cheat’s Omelette

Cheat’s Omelette by: Arnold Bennett (presented by Rachel Kenny-Green)

I think that eggs and smoked fish cooked together is the ultimate comfort food combination. It’s my emergency recipe for those moments when all hell has broken loose and you realise you’ve left tea time a bit late and the children are either going to fall asleep or start hitting each other. It’s ridiculously quick to cook but feels like a tea time treat.

Friends with Recipes: Minty Lamb Kebabs

Minty Lamb Kebabs – by Rachel Kenny-Green

We live in Swansea so when the weather is hot we go straight to the beach after school. This can mean if we have a week of hot weather we’re basically living off a diet of sausages and ice cream which the kids love but I need vegetables. I’ve been making a real effort to up my after school bbq game and this is one of the things we’ve been making. I put the raw kebabs in a tupperware and make up the salad and tzatziki before hand and then everyone can make up their own. They also work shaped into patties then cooked under the grill but are particularly delish with a little charring. Don’t forget to bring lots of kitchen roll as they can be a bit messy!

Friends with Recipes: Pea, Feta, Mint & Spring Onion Frittata

The kids and I are finally coming out of our jet lag haze. We are staying in a charming little cabin on a lake (that belongs to my friend Kate‘s family) that is so peaceful and lovely, but has no wifi so I’m currently woefully behind on Family Feast’s takeover! The good news is that we are having a great time in the beautiful northwest and have been seeing a lot of my family. Last night I made my quinoa enchilada bake for my meat eating dad and my picky eating (but lovely 🙂 ) mama and they loved it! My dad said he didn’t even miss the meat. Success! Anyway, back to Dani and this gorgeous looking frittata!
