Kids in the Kitchen – Time to say Goodbye

It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that this is going to be my last Kids in the Kitchen linky post. I have given it a lot of thought and after eighteen months I’ve decided to end my linky. To be honest it has never really been popular which tells me I have no idea of how to run a successful linky. Since I started I’ve seen two very similar linkies start up and become successful overnight, so I know it’s my fault.
I will of course still be cooking with my kids, especially Boo is becoming a proper little chef. I really want to encourage her and grow her talent. We will still share our recipes with you.
I will still keep adding to my Pinterest board which gets a lot of re-pins. If I see something that fits I’ll add it, so if you are ever looking for something to cook with your kids then it will be a great resource to go to.

Follow Anne’s board Kids In The Kitchen on Pinterest.

I have had a couple of busy weeks and a manic weekend so we don’t even have anything to share with you this week. I’d like to round up a few of my favourite posts from past Kids in the Kitchen weeks.

One of my most popular posts has been Pitta Breads. They are so simple to make and yet so tasty.
Another really easy recipe which gets a lot of visits is Banana Splits.
Finally, I love this post because Star really wanted to make these Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The linky will remain open for one more week just in case anyone was hoping to join in.

I’d like to say thank you to all those who have joined me on this cooking adventure, in particular the lovely Beesley family from The Beesley Buzz, do go and take a look at their latest creation Hot Water Crust Pastry Pasties.

And a special thank you to Annabel from Tickle Fingers who has joined in lots but also does some fantastic cooking with toddlers.

Kids in the Kitchen will be back, just not as a linky.

    You've been brilliant hosting all this time! How does one judge success of a linky anyway? – We have been inspired and motivated time and time again by Kids in the kitchen. We've baked and cooked so many things that we would never have thought of cooking before thanks to Kids in the Kitchen. We've loved reading about your cooking adventures and we've loved sharing our successes and failures. I've eagerly awaited mondays to see what recipes you've been cooking each week. I am guessing there probably is a 'knack' to running a successful linky in terms of getting lots of people to join in and it's probably a lot of hard work. You've been brilliant hosting it in the first place as I wouldn't even know where to start with hosting a linky. Please do see it as a success though because you've ignited a passion for cooking in Miss T who has joined in since she was tiny and helped me muddle through and learn to cook a lot better than I ever could before. We will keep cooking thanks to you and we look forward to seeing you keep cooking with your kids too. xxx

      Thank you Rebecca xx I'm glad to have inspired you and Miss T. Of course there will still be lots of cooking, I just need to take of the pressure of having a post ready at a particular time each week to keep the linky running. If it was popular then it would be worth it, but some weeks I do struggle to get it ready in time.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
