About this deal

I have been cooking since I was three so the recipes just come to me – often in the middle of the night.” On Sunday, Mark took hold of my book and cooked up some of my American Blueberry Pancakes which he served up as a late breakfast with maple syrup and some crispy bacon...yes, the kids are away!! He misread the abbreviation 2 tsp as 2 tablespoons - of baking powder (!)- but I managed to thwart his attempts at sabotaging my recipe and the end result was completely delicious. We were nicely stoked up for our cycle along the Bristol to Bath railway path for lunch with our lovely friends there. Door to door is only about 20 miles but the rain was torrential from start to finish and what is normally a gorgeous cycle ride was pretty unpleasant really! By 2008, Kate had secured a publishing contract for her book – Go Faster Food – and in 2009 it was flying off the shelves.

It’s your company – you can do it. There will be naysayers, but listen to as much advice as you can so you can make as an informed a decision as you can and listen to your gut. Brown the sausages gently in 1 tbsp of the oil in a large flameproof casserole dish or roasting dish. Set aside.Kate has created an ‘Eat Like an Athlete’ programme – a set of resources, lesson plans and workshops – that uses sport as a hook to get kids engaged.

Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown, turning the mixture after 10 minutes for it to brown evenly.As a fairly lean runner, I don't really have much of a problem in the muscle tone and fat burn department, but my incredibly active cyclist/kayaking mother-in-law (or, as some say, "extreme grannie"), absolutely swears by these shoes. What they don't mention in the promotional information is that I think you can actually walk further before your legs start to feel tired. This is really important for me - after a 10 mile run sometimes the thought of walking the 3 mile round trip to school to collect my children seems rather daunting....but not with my new Shape Ups! Pour into an ovenproof dish (about 20cm diameter, but don't worry if it is a bit smaller or larger).

eggs – however your child enjoys them, or in disguise in pancakes (see Oaty Hotcakes with Strawberries and Agave Nectar recipe) Bristol based entrepreneur Kate Percy was recently named as one of the UK's 100 'game changers' by The Sunday Times (Image: BristolLive)

It has been a busy weekend - the book signing on Saturday, the Bristol Half on Sunday followed by a lovely post half lunch at friends and then my birthday (for which Mark cooked a delicious...no, I mean really really delicious roast beef). On top of this of course there have been the normal kids activities - a rugby match against Taunton School and a football match plus rugby, football and swimming training. Not wanting to go too overboard singing my husband's praises, he dealt with all the kids stuff this weekend brilliantly...except the washing of the kit of course (claims he doesn't know how to work the washing machine). In another bowl, cream together the margarine, soft brown sugar and malt extract with an electric whisk, until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs with the whisk, one at a time. Stir in the buttermilk or yoghurt and the bananas. This is not just for breakfast! Let kids munch on a bowl of Maple and Almond Crisp while they do their homework.
