Not surprisingly cooking rated very highly so as a way to celebrate the end of term I decided to undertake another cooking day with them all.

If you are a follower of this blog you will know that our family is quite fond of blueberries. On the weekend Little Miss B and I baked a lovely batch of blueberry muffins with the fruit we recently picked and froze. I came across this recipe a couple of years ago through a friend.

It is also easy to substitute the blueberries for other types of fruit too e.g. bananas, dates, apples and pears – so why not give it a go with the kids today!
