Take Back the Kitchen with Wren Kitchens

Take Back the Kitchen with Wren Kitchens Dillydrops BlogWhile waiting for our new kitchen to be completed, I was very excited about being asked to try out some of the ideas in Wren Kitchens’ Take Back the Kitchen campaign.  They sent us a lovely ‘Little Kitchen: Big Ideas’ cook book to try out some of the recipes.  Filled with tasty recipes from bloggers, these healthy recipes were exactly what we had been looking for.

It has been tricky getting my children to eat anything other than crisps and chocolates for the past couple of weeks.  As our kitchen has been in disarray, we’ve just been finding quick and easy, straight out of the packet foods as much as we can.  This little cook book is inspirational as it gave us a fresh look on how to get more fruit and vegetables into our diet.   With sections such as Superhero Swaps, Sneaky Greens and Little Creations, we soon chose the recipes we wanted to try first.  We cleared a space on the worktop and started making these delicious recipes.

We decided to make an afternoon tea, as suggested by My Petit CanardBoth children loved getting involved in making the food.  Not all of it made it to the table though, as it was eaten before it got that far.  Here are some of the recipes and ideas from the Take Back the Kitchen, Little Kitchen: Big Ideas cook book.  We slightly modified some of them.
