My Mama Cooks

There are few nicer things that the internet has brought than the ability to connect with people regardless of location. I love being able to share the snapshots of our life with you. I am inspired by the creative lives being shared through blogs I read. Along the way I have made a few friends. I have watched people find new outlets and careers through opening the virtual doors to their lives.

I think short of having my own book published there is no greater joy than opening a book one of my friends has worked day and night to produce. I recently opened the My Daddy Cooks cook book and beyond the excitement of seeing my friend’s book was the excitement about the contents. It really is filled with gorgeous family recipes which work for delicious everyday meals. If you want convincing, check out my review on Bambino Goodies.

I have long joked with Nick that I would make a spoof video of Monty and I cooking which often ends with Monty losing his sense of humour: “Me mix it Mama, me MIX IT.” “Don’t put it in the oven, I want it RIGHT NOW.”

Last night we were cooking Savoury Brittany Pancakes from the book and on a whim I asked Mr Kat to get the video camera. Monty helped me while Milla was in charge of filming. A very fun end to a tiring day.

Did you spot Monty nicking fillings while my back was turned? If you want the recipe then you’ll need to buy the book or the ebook where you’ll find it alongside 99 other gems.

    Great video – I loved the part when Monty was like, “I love cheeeese!”. I’ll have to check out that cookbook x

      Thanks – lost the video of the cake we made for you but this worked so much better. I want a My Georgia Cooks video – that would be brilliant!

    Lovely lovely video, Monty is clearly a future star – I loved seeing him sneak a bit of mushroom and getting excited by the pancake. Completely don’t blame him…do I have enough eggs to do this for tea?…hmmm. I really enjoy your blog – thanks for sharing so much great stuff, all the best :)

      Thank you Laura, that’s lovely of you to say so. Hope you did have enough eggs – it is the tea of champions…

    I must get Nicks book. It’s on my to do list and would be so much easier than keep flicking through all the print outs. Great vlog and Monty is scrummy!

      Could not recommend it more; it is the perfect book for us as a family.

    They look delicious – and you did a great job of filming while you cook. I’m not nearly as calm and unflappable in the kitchen, especially when the children are about!

      Not smart enough to do my hair first though :) In all honesty it is rarely that smooth, perhaps I should film us more often!

    I love cheeeeese! I love him! Great video, well done you for finding time to Vlog with your tribe getting hungry too. Cx
