Well here we are blogging live at the MAD (Mum and Dad) Blog Awards, the biggest event celebrating the most popular parenting blogs in the UK today! There’s an incredible atmosphere here, with around 100 talented mum and dad bloggers who like to share their knowledge, inspiration and passion for cooking, family life, parenthood and creativity with us all.
We’re proud sponsors of the Best MAD Food Blog category, and before the results are announced we wanted to share all the Food Blog Finalists’ favourite secret recipes with you all!
Here are some ideas to inspire you in the kitchen:
Bangers and Mash nominated its Chicken and Noodle Salad. Vanesther said: “This has been one of the most popular recipes to date on my blog. I was completely blown away when one of the other mums at my daughter’s school recently told me she followed my blog and had made this recipe for her family and how much they all enjoyed it. It’s so lovely to hear from people that have tried your food and liked it. She now gives me feedback on every recipe I post, so no pressure there then…”
The Crazy Kitchen has shared her scrumptious Chocolate Cake recipe with us. Helen said: “One of my most popular recipes both on my blog & at home is my Chocolate Fudge Cake. This cake has got to be the best and one of the easiest chocolate cakes I have ever made. The sponge is moist and chocolatey and the frosting is rich & gooey, perfect with a cuppa or warmed up with ice cream.”
Maison Cupcake has created a simply divine Gluten Free Plum and Cinnamon Cake. Sarah said: ” I’m very proud of my latest post, this gluten free plum cake. I love it because it’s seasonal, looks beautiful on the table and is very easy to make. That it’s gluten free is a further bonus.”
Relentless Laundry shares her Smoked Haddock in a Creamy Sauce recipe. Jess said: “Here’s a recipe which I made the other night – I’d forgotten just how easy and delicious it is: 10 minutes from start to finish, AND the kids love it (they had three helpings each!), while being good enough to serve to real people (ie grown-ups) too. ”
