Baking with children. Make your own lunch.

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 22nd September 2014

This month I thought I’d bring you a recipe that’s great for getting the children in your life enjoying the kitchen as much as you do.

Whether you’ve got children of your own and have just re-started the daily packed lunch production line, or are just temporarily taking the role of small-person supervisor and want an easy activity that has the added bonus of resulting lunch, this recipe is ideal. You’ll have the benefit of knowing exactly what your darling one is eating and they can get all nice and messy mixing and kneading the bread with their hands. You could even add spices, nuts, dried fruit, or other ingredients to jazz it up. I once had a lovely cinnamon spiced soda bread with dates and walnuts in it. I suspect that version would be more popular with the more mature section of the family though, especially if accompanied with some good cheese and wine!

Induction cooking for the whole family

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 15th September 2014

One of my earliest memories is helping my mum make fairy cakes – probably more of the mixing and tasting than the actual cooking but children do love to help out in the kitchen, especially when it comes to baking. If you’re concerned about safety, one of the most child-friendly options in terms of hobs is induction. Its main benefit is that it’s an extremely safe method of cooking, as it’s the pan that heats up and not the hob. This is great when cooking with little ones, as if they accidentally touch the hob’s surface, they won’t get burned. Another bonus is that they usually come with built-in safety controls such as automatic shut-off if a pan is not in contact with the hob.

How to pack a healthy budget-friendly lunch

Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 8th September 2014

Back to school can not be missed, shops everywhere are advertising new stationary, children are getting depressed in our countries pandemic, and some parents may even be relieved! But like New Year, a new school year brings promise, a new chance, time to spend with chums, but where does that leave parents with the endless task of 5 new items of meal planning every week? I’ve been thinking long and hard about this and playing with my Rangemaster to come up with some bits and pieces to help. See my list below, what are your ideas; do you have any tips for other Rangemaster parents?

Hints and tips on using your Rangemaster griddle

Posted by Alison Baker Thursday, 21st August 2014

Lying in bed on a sunny Sunday morning, one of those relaxed days when we had no plans, I thought, how about a cooked breakfast?  Sausages, bacon, tomatoes all cooked on the griddle, eggs too, cooked in those ‘chefy’ metal rings. The oven on to warm the plates and keep everything hot while the eggs are cooking. I wonder if we have any hash browns in the freezer?

Stuffed Armenian Lavash

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 18th August 2014

Originally I was going to bring you a recipe for pitta bread this month. I wanted something that could be filled with whatever is in the fridge and was easy to make fresh on the griddle. Then I thought about the amount of times I’ve made pitta bread since the first time … I’ve never made it again. Why? It’s nicer home made, that’s for sure, but it’s so cheap and so readily available that it’s just too easy to buy it instead. So I turned to my Armenian friend Briony to find out what their equivalent flat bread was. It’s called lavash (or lavosh) and is usually cooked in a tandoor oven where it is stuck to the side and falls off when it’s cooked.  I’m not sure how authentic my version is – it’s a combination of a variety of recipes I researched, but it’s easy, tasty, and versatile, and you can’t buy it in our local supermarket!

Warm Salads on the Rangemaster

Posted by James McIntosh Tuesday, 12th August 2014

What a summer we have had. Touch wood it stays like this. Constant sunshine and very few showers. The World Cup and the Commonwealth Games. For me, well, I’ve been working, a few days off in Greece and as fabulous as it sounds 35C was a bit too much for my milk-bottle white Northern Irish complexion. Holidays in the sun for me resemble my favourite cooked shellfish. Lobster. My other half was very pleased to have me in Greece, mosquito’s love me, I don’t love them. Upon my return to the UK I was described as a personal Mosquito catcher. Charming. Other half was not bitten.

Bringing the outside in...

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 4th August 2014

No doubt we’re all crossing our fingers that this summer will be a scorcher. Or even just hot. Or mildly warm at the very least… so long as it doesn’t rain. But if the clouds start gathering on the day you’ve planned a party complete with barbecue and sizzling sausages as far as the eye can see, you can still create that authentic chargrilled taste indoors if you have the right appliances for the job.
