Bagel Wreath


What a cool way to make an open top bagel look Christmassy! We found this version on Keeley McGuire's blog, and we love it!

Top your bagel with anything you like, but make sure the top is tacky enough to stick the rocket leaves down so that they don't fall off en route to the plate. If it's for a lunch box, press the leaves on a little while the melted cheese is still gooey so they will stay put til lunch.



You can find Keeley's idea - in her adorable advent lunchbox complete with other ideas for counting down to Christmas on her site here.


Keeley says that she was inspired by this broccoli version of the same idea. We think this is cool too, but its more suitable for a bagel pizza style tea on a plate at home, and would travel less well in a lunchbox.



You can find the broccoli versionhere.Why not try them both!

Frozen Banana Crunch Popsicles This is a fun alternative to an ice lolly, with a portion of fruit shoehorned in. We found it on Baking Bites and there are clear instructions there on how to make it. Because the banana is frozen and has a sweetened crunchy coating it feels more of a treat. We have also seen versions using crushed up Special K type cereals - especially good are the ones with the berries as you get little flakes of chewy red in the coating. You can use a pes...

Easter Bunny Breakfast with Scrambled Egg and Bacon Loving this creative Easter breakfast. I know it's fab to get up and do the Easter egg hunt, but you need to get some 'proper food' into kids before they really pile in to the pile of chocolate. This is a great breakfast idea which will fill them up and make them smile and enable you to get them to postpone the chocolate carnage for a little longer. The recipe was created by Carrie over at worthpinning.com and was inspired by some ...
