When getting together as a family, there are many activities that can include everyone. Things like family days out can be a great way to spend more time together, but if the weather is bad or you can't take everyone out, you may want to think of other activities. One activity that stands out for most people is cooking or baking. Being able to have everyone in the kitchen helping is a great way to spend some quality time together. They say that the kitchen is the heart of a home, so why not make it the heart of your family too?
Therefore, we have come up with some great recipe ideas for cooking with the family, so you can get stuck in with some homemade pizza, cupcakes and yummy food inspiration - even some of the little ones can join in!
Victoria from the blog Healthy Vix has recommended that you try making homemade pizzas, a fun activity that gets everyone stuck in! "We love making homemade pizzas as a family so even our youngest can help! We'll either make dough or use a flatbread, pop a blob of tomato puree on the base that the kids can easily spread out with the back of a spoon, and have lots of toppings ready chopped that they can add themselves.
"Homemade pizzas are a really easy and fun way to start getting kids excited about cooking and lots of healthy toppings can be added!"

If you want something a little lighter and a little sweeter, why not try making some of Zoe's Chocolate and coconut Bliss balls? From the blog My Allergy Kitchen, Zoe loves to provide recipes for families who have food allergies! When asking her for a great recipe for everyone to enjoy she told us "we love making bliss balls! They are super easy to make, even for very young children and require no cooking. It also encourages them to eat lots of healthy ingredients and you can throw in whatever you have in the cupboard to create different combinations. All you need is a food processor. This is my family's favourite bliss ball recipe:"

For a lunchtime special Daisy from Daisarella told us to try some of her ham egg cups.
"We love making ham egg cups, and it fascinates my daughter how the eggs go from being really runny before going in the oven and then tasty and baked when they come out."
Here is the recipe so you can try them out:

Another healthy sweet treat is Sarah's One-Pot Fruity Buns. By combining natural yoghurt with juicy fruit, Sarah has made the perfect bun recipe for 12 individual treats.
"The recipe utilises the small pot that the natural yoghurt comes in to measure out the other ingredients required for the recipe. Making it perfect for getting the kids used to measuring out ingredients and following a simple recipe method."
