10 years on and I'm still enjoying modelling. With four adorable children 5 and under to feed - not forgetting a very hungry husband as well - making quick healthy tasty food means I can balance my work and home life....that's the plan anyway!! I'm happy to share my tried and tested favourite recipes with other parents. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do..... Love Gemma xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Cheese Straws

Its my brother in laws wedding this weekend and I'm very excited both girls are going to be flower girls.  I love getting all dressed up and buying a new hat!
I'm going to see dirty dancing tonight at the theatre, I'm a real girl when it comes to love stories...!

Cheese straws are easy peasy lemon squeezey snack or lunch box filler.....

4 oz plain flour
2 oz marg
2 oz cheese
2 eggs
pinch of parsley

Turn oven to 200c
Add the flour and marg together in a bowl and use your hands to turn it into 'breadcrumbs'
Mix in the grated cheese and parsley.
Whisk the egg and mix in to flour to form a dough.  If its to wet add flour, if its to dry add some water.
Roll out onto floured surface and cut dough into 5" long, 0.5" thick straws.
Cook on a baking paper for about 10 minutes until just golden brown.
