Toddler Meals (December 2011)

~ Posted on Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at 8:53 AM ~

It has been a while since I last posted pictures and meals that Ben took. I used to do  the toddler meals posts on a weekly basis before I delivered Alyson and I want to continue back this tradition of disciplining myself to ensure Ben is getting proper meals but I think with my schedule now, I can post it on monthly basis and pictures taken will be whenever possible.

So here goes the meals Ben had in December 2011:

Easy to Remember Pancakes

~ Posted on Monday, November 21, 2011 at 8:08 AM ~

It has been quite a while since I posted stuff related to baking or cooking. As I was up wayyyyy early in the morning (like 6am) on Saturday, I decided to browse through my kids' recipes app on my iPad and found this super easy to remember pancakes recipe! One that I can whip up from scratch without relying on premix! Anyway, without further ado, here goes:



Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes


* 1 cup flour
* 1 tablespoon sugar
* 1 tablespoon baking powder
* 1 teaspoon salt (if any at all)
(I should have omitted this!!!)
* 1 cup milk (sometimes a little less) (I didn't measure this as I poured straight from an almost full 250ml UHT full cream milk)
* 1 egg, beaten
* 2 tablespoons butter, melted or 2 tablespoons oil (I used oil)


What to Do?

* Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together.
* Fold in milk, beaten egg, and melted butter or oil.
* Grease griddle or pan.
* Put about 1/4 cup batter on heated skillet.
* When bubbles start showing on the surface of the pancake, flip and continue cooking until done.



I added 3 small bananas, half and sliced.

Close up shot...


"Oh no! Salty! Should have omitted the salt! Tastewise, it's kinda like the fluffier version of my mum's Pok Chang"

"Mmmmm!!(He could have finished one pancake instead of eating about 80% of it if he had not eaten half slice of puff crust sponge cake while I was making the pancake)

"Salty! But OK-lah, I've seen some other hotels and places making pancakes like this. I think if eaten with bacon and all would be nice!" 

So there you go.... my first attempt of making EASY TO REMEMBER PANCAKES without premix!

Just need to remember 1-1-1-1-1-1-2! Easy peasy!

Ribena Popsicle

~ Posted on Thursday, September 29, 2011 at 2:45 PM ~

It's been a while since I last posted on something related to food, anyway, this post is not even about food but heck, too cumbersome to create a new category and don't feel like it belongs to other parenting categories in my blog, anyway, just read on and enjoy the pictures...

A friend of ours gave us a set of ice cream/popsicle mould few weeks back and hubby tried it by pouring Ribena into it and freezing it for a day before letting Ben tried it. He loves it but it gets really messy and we had to tie a nappy cloth around Ben's neck before he eats the popsicle.

Then I saw this cute ice cream mould on one of the online store which I always frequented and ordered this set of ice cream mould which arrived 2 days later. Then I got down to doing what hubby did and freeze the Ribena for a day before letting Ben tries it.

Tada!!! Cute eh?

Passed it to Ben and he was wondering what was it...

Then he took out the holder and got busy investigating it...

His first taste...

What do you think? He loves it of course!

Btw, there are many more options to play around with popsicle... Milo, chocolate, milk, etc etc...

What other flavors have you tried or came across?
