Scooby snacks cookie maker

An offical toy from scooby Doo. I think is costs about £15; I bought it for my daughter’s 6th birthday.
I hope this review will be particularly useful for all those mothers who were sucked in by the ready steady cook range of toys. This isn’t an ordinary kitchen appliance in a different colour and double the price. But this isn’t exactly a cookie maker either. It is more like a food scruncher! What you do is pour in ingredients like cornflakes, broken biscuits and chocolate chips; turn the handle round and round so it all becomes crumbs. It lands in a little bowl, in which you put a layer of jam (otherwise the other ingredients won’t stick together) and press down the presser (though you’re lucky if you can tell what the picture pressed into it is supposed to be. Then you leave it in the fridge to set for 20 minutes and voila! There’s your cookie! The reality is more like Voila! There’s your little pile of crumbs stuck together with jam!
But because the process of making the ‘cookie’ is so easy, a child as young as 5 or 6 can easily make this with a bare minimum of help from a parent. Nice and easy for the parent too – all you have to do is clear up the spilt breakfast cereal, and eat the left over chocolate chips. So actually, I really would recommend this toy. It is a bit sticky, but you can just imagine the fun the kids will have putting all kinds of food from your cupboard into these Scooby snacks!

What to do with your leftover rhubarb
September 28, 2016
Rhubarb is virtually indestructible and is about the only fruit or vegetable I can rely on in the garden! My rhubarb was inherited from previous owners of our old house and moved with us to this one, so is at least seventeen years old. It just keeps on and on growing from March until the first hard frost. If you’re the same and still have some left and are bored of rhubarb crumble and thinking, What shall I do with my rhubarb? then here’s a couple of suggestions: Rhubarb streusels and rhubarb muffins. Both these recipes have been adapted from magazines, and you’ll need plenty of paper cupcake cases. The streusels especially, are a hit in the family…..
Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
