In 2016 we started this website and since then she's gone from strengh to strengh, now at 14 she's being left in charge

                          of making up her own recipes  and cooking family meals. Also in 2016 her younger sister Jess joined us in home education, 

                          at first she didn't have  much of an interest in cooking but  that changed lin 2018 when she entered an online competition

                          that Abbie was doing the #twitterbakealong that is run alongside the Great  British Bake Off. Jess suprised us all when she got

                          the star baker award  with her Strawberry Scones. 




Most of the recipes we share are made by the children but there are also some done my me or my husbnad Tom. Tom doesn't put many recipes on, he is a really good cook but he hates computers so it takes a lot of persuasion to actually get him to post, check out his Lasagna recipe, it's brilliant. 


We are based in Nottinghamshre, close to Sherwood forest so we spend a lot of time visiting places of interest around the area, see out links for ideas on days out mainly of which are in the Nottinghamshire & South Yorkshire. 








Hello and thank you for coming to see us. I'm Lydia and the idea for this website came about in 2015 when we took our eldest granddaughter Abbie out of school. Like a lot of children she expressed a desire to have a go at baking from around the age of 3. We started with simple fairy cakes then moved onto biscuits then slightly more involved recipes. At the age of 10 she started an after school cookery club where  she did mainly baking, but one week they made sausage rolls and after that she then wanted to try more savoury recipes. Not long after this we took her out of school to home educate her and that's when the cooking really started.
