    20-Minute Honey-Glazed Chicken Wings: Easy Cooking With Kids!
    Keep those little fingers (and mouths) busy with this recipe! Children love to be involved in group activities and the kitchen is full of curious things to play with. Cooking with your kids also educates them on healthy food choices and introduces them to food preparation, so that they may grow up to be independent adults. Here's an easy recipe to try with your kids, and they'll love devouring the sticky-sweet wings too!

    Honey-glazed chicken wings

    These sweet and sticky chicken wings are baked in the oven and are a less fatty alternative to fried wings. The honey marinade takes just minutes to prepare and is made with kitchen staples, so you don’t have to make the trip down to the supermarket. Smaller wingettes and drumettes soak up the marinade better and they are well-suited to children’s hands. Get your kids to lay the marinated wings onto the oven baking sheet and brush the honey glaze on them before putting them in the oven. Optional - you can add sesame seeds and chopped spring onions as a garnish before serving.

  7. Bake Your Very First Loaf of Bread with This Easy Recipe!

    Bake Your Very First Loaf of Bread with This Easy Recipe!
    Bread is something many people can’t live without. It is versatile, nutritious, gives you energy for the day and is widely accessible. Sliced sandwich bread available in supermarkets is the go-to option for many of us, but nothing comes as close (and as inexpensive) as homemade bread. Whether it is a humble white loaf or a sourdough made with exotic grains and wild yeast that has been passed down through the years like a precious family heirloom, the flavour difference between homemade bread and store-bought options is dramatic. After making and tasting their first homemade loaf, many people ditch store-bought bread forever. It smells so good and can taste amazing with just butter. Home bakers take some time off for bread making on the weekends, making sure their families have sufficient bread for the week. Furthermore, many store-bought bread brands have added milk and sugar for a richer taste and softer texture – not good things to eat if you are vegan or are trying to avoid added sugars. But it can be daunting for absolute beginners to make their first loaf. They are surrounded by conflicting information and have no idea where to start. Some recipes are geared towards experienced bakers, while others try to run before learning to walk, failing at making more complex bread such as ciabatta and baguettes. They get discouraged and decide to give up their homemade bread goals. The key is to learn the basics, then work up to more adventurous recipes as you get more familiar with the bread-making process. That is the most important lesson I have learned as a home baker of two years. Beginners need to get used to handling bread dough and not give up on their first failure. Let’s get started on your bread-making journey with a recipe you can’t go wrong with: the basic white bread.

    What you need to make your first loaf of bread

    First, go to the supermarket or a bakers’ supply shop to get the following equipment. Don’t scrimp on these items – they will make you

    The Ultimate Crispy, Crunchy French Toast Recipe
    easy french toast recipesSay goodbye to your regular french toast recipe of frying bread in eggs and milk. This is how you level up your french toast recipe - with a humble box of cornflakes! Yes, that's right. Just one simple step to coat your toast in cornflake crumbs and frying it in a generous amount of butter results in a delightfully crisped, crunchy outside and a warm filling within. The perfect thing about this is that you can fill your french toast with any filling you like - so peanut butter and jelly is a great combination, or peanut butter and banana, nutella and banana... the list goes on. Give this decadent stack a swirl of maple syrup and some powdered sugar, and you have yourself an Instagram-worthy breakfast. Is Tiktok your new recipe guide? We've been taking some inspiration too.

  9. Your Everyday Kitchen Work Horse: The Food Processor

    Your Everyday Kitchen Work Horse: The Food Processor
    Stand mixer, bread maker, food processor, and more. Since embarking on your journey as a home chef or baker, you’ve probably encountered at least one of the above appliances. We get it: it might be daunting not knowing where to start, deciding what appliance suits you best and which deserves to be your go-to equipment on your kitchen countertop. While we’ve done a side-by-side comparison of the two most versatile kitchen tools we have to offer, it’s a moot point if we don’t show you just how flexible and amazing they can be. To start with, here’s an in-depth review of one of our favourites - the food processor. This everyday kitchen workhorse is capable of whipping you an entire meal from bread to dessert, and even sauces. Don’t believe us? Our friends at ShareFood have come up with some ways you can get the most out of your Kenwood Multipro Sense Food Processor 810.

    Get creative, and let your food processor do the heavy lifting

    Love sambal chilli but hate having to tear up when chopping onions and feeling the burn from the spicy chilli padi? Take the large chunks of ingredients, toss it in the food processor and let it do the chopping. For the paste variation of the well-loved local dip, go for an additional step of popping the chilli into the blender attachment, add in lime juice, and bob’s your uncle! Not a fan of the sambal’s spiciness? We’ve got you. This food processor can easily whip up fresh peanut butter, baby puree, or even eggless mayonnaise for special diets.

    Shred it, slice it, have it any way you want it

    With 5 creative shredding and slicing discs, the food processor also helps with quickening up your food preparation. For instance, use the thinnest blade to shred carrots, zucchini and other ingredients neatly and quickly. Or choose to flip the blade and use the slicing disc for a nice and thin cut of your cucumbers. With this nifty
