New Blocks and Some Cooking Fun

I love the greens in these blocks I received today. Thank You!

Just had to share tonight's cooking story :-). DS (11 yo) decided to cook a cake tonight. I offered a basic cake recipe as a guide but he was adamant he wanted to create the best cake ever by making up his own recipe! He came up with the following combination:

Chocolate Banana Cake
3 cups plain flour
1 cup sugar
8 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cocoa
2 bananas
Mix all the ingredients together. Bake in oven until cooked.

Well I did eat one whole piece but after a couple of nibbles DS crumbled his piece and fed it to the dogs ;-)

This is his cooking motto as written by him tonight (think Star Trek!)

Food the final frontier
These are the voyages of the star cook J
His continuing mission
To explore strange new foods
To seek out new ingredients and new ways of cooking
To boldly go where no man has eaten before

He's such a character, LOL! He even assured me on Sunday that it couldn't possibly be Mother's Day because they hadn't made anything at school for mums!!!


  1. Thanks for the recipe...I love chocolate so I know I would love this one.

  2. How cute, he is a trekkie isn't he?

  3. Love the block on the left. Wonderful colours!

    As to J .... what a brilliant motto.
