Potato Smiles

YUMMY! for kids AND mama 😉

These are the perfect way to get some extra veggies into my fussy little 3 year old Ali.

Adding some grated carrot, some peas, some extra sneaky veg is always a great extra inside these too. Ali is at that fussy stage of loving a food one day but hating it the next. The WORST stage of toddlerhood. It seriously drives me crazy. He’s loving chick peas at the moment so i’m making so many different tagines with them in while I can, last month he hated chick peas so we were unable to use them. He would flat out refuse to eat the meal if he noticed that chick peas were cooked with it too.


  • 6 potatoes

  • 9 tbsp of cornstarch (cornflour)

  • 1 cup flour

  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs

  • 1 tbsp salt

  • 2 eggs

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • Cooking oil


  1. Cook the potatoes in small cubes in salted water.
  2. Smash up the potatoes (plus other veg if using) and add all other ingredients.
  3. Spread the dough on a floured surface to 1 cm thick, form circles and eyes with a straw, and use a spoon for the mouth.
  4. Fry in hot oil until golden.
  5. Serve with a small salad (if they eat that) 😉 and some sauce for dipping

If you make them please let me know what you think!



I have a new addiction – COCONUT CHIPS !

It’s no secret in our house that I love everything COCONUT! Coconut water, coconut milk, shredded, desiccated omg everything coconut I adore ❤

I was at the pharmacy the other day and I saw coconut chips on the counter, they weren’t cheap (about $4 is memory is correct) but having never tried them before and having the personality where money burns a hole in my pocket and must must be spent I grabbed a bag.

oh how I wish I grabbed more than 1 bag 😥 biggest regret lol

Oh my sweet amazing crunchy delicious new love

I don’t know about other brands, as I said this is the only brand i’ve ever tried. But WOW these things are amazing. The packet did not have enough though as after I finished the last crunchy delicious morsel I was begging for more and getting each tiny crumb from the bottom corners to prolong the snacking delight.

Check them babies out. Crunchy, sweet and simply divine

The next time I see these babies i’m stocking up. I’ll have to be sneaky and hide the purchase from my husband though or he’ll likely have a heart attack at the price hehe

Are you in love with coconut as much as I am?
