Sesame and oregano lavosh crackers

These tasty little bickies are a very fun cooking project for kids. Kids love rolling out the dough and cutting it into shapes to bake, will keep them engaged for hours… well at least 10 minutes. I will try them soon with bacon, different cheese, herbs and spices. They are great for kids lunch boxes and snacks. Also great for adults to serve with your favourite cheeses and dips and super easy.
2/3 cup wholemeal flour
2/3 cup plain flour
4 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
½ cup warm water
Topping for baking: Olive oil and sea salt
Turn oven on to 170 C.
Mix all ingredients in the Thermomix knead for 2 minutes or mix in the blender or mixer until it is a smooth dough. Rest for 10 minutes and roll out to 3-4 ml, you can do this through the pasta maker and cut into shapes, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt, and bake until golden brown and cooked through.

School holiday fun

we spent a most of the first week of the school holidays at the dancing eisteddfod, but the second week the kids got to catch up on some playdates with their cousins and with my family that means a feast or two.

Maggie was inspired by a little Japanese song she has learnt at school so she wanted a Asian feast. This was also a good excuse to re-test a few of the recipes from my new book, The Real Food for kids Cookbook with a bunch of different age children and also film a bit to make demonstrations for You tube to go with the book, so much easier to learn something by watching it!

Cooking with children is a lot of fun, I bring the food out of the kitchen and onto the dining room table when I have young kids around who need to be careful around hot and sharp objects.
