Lockdown plus homeschooling plus working from home equals a constant demand for meals and snacks. There’s one solution: batch cooking enables you to save money and time by planning ahead and making sure that you have easy options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
No waste. But, when you spend time – plus a lot of extra ingredients – making a slab of this chocolate weetabix slice instead of ditching a long-opened sleeve of wheat biscuits that fell down the back of the cupboard, you have to wonder about your priorities.
Kitchen inspiration for kids off school, including Pippi Longstocking’s Pepparkakor, roasted eggs and potatoes from The Secret Garden, chocolatl from Northern Lights, Bruce Bogtrotter’s Chocolate Cake and pork dumplings inspired by Mulan.
