Lads, it's literally my favourite time of year for so many reasons. Autumn I am more than ready for you!   Firstly, in my opinion, it is the most beautiful time of year in Ireland. Orange, brown and red scatter the paths, roads and fields. A sight to behold and a background that any photographer [...]

Toddler Breakfast Slices

By | October 20th, 2015|breakfast, healthy, Recipe, recipes|1 Comment

Sometimes I follow recipes to the letter of the law and they just don't work out the way I wanted them to. I end up with a massive mess to clean up in the kitchen and a mediocre dish. On the contrary sometimes I get these ideas in my head and I just throw together [...]

I wanted to share this lovely little recipe with you all. I've seen a couple of similar recipes on the net, but I kind of just made this one up today and it turned out brilliantly. We were going to see Ben And Holly Live at The Olympia Theatre today, Billy's first trip to the theatre. [...]

Recipe l Banana And Oat Bites

I'm on a bit of a finger food buzz at the moment. Billy has suddenly become this independent little person who is much happier feeding himself. I've always been interested in Baby Led Weaning, but we decided to do some spoon feeding as well. Now that he's almost 11 months old (sorry, WHAT?) I'm finding [...]

Recipe l Sugar-Free Baby/Toddler Friendly Banana Bread

As you probably know by now I'm always on the lookout for new recipes to try. I love cooking and I love discovering a new recipe. I find that once you give something a go once, it's like second nature the next time you make it. What was once a step-by-step tedious recipe soon becomes [...]

Recipe : Baby/Toddler Cheesy Vegetable Fritters

I'm always on the look out for new and interesting foods to introduce Billy to. I love batch-cooking recipes and storing some of the portions in the freezer. It feels really good knowing what he is eating and knowing exactly what ingredients have gone in to the dish. I'm going to be sharing as many [...]

Feed The Family

I'm on a quest to shake things up in the kitchen. I said in this post that I had come to the realization that I was starting to make the same dinners over and over again. I was putting little thought in to my menu planning and now I want that to change. Of course [...]

The absolute shame. I had wholeheartedly intended to take part in the Linky over at bumblesofrice.com. This linky is all about taking photos of your dinner every day for a week. It's a fun accountability exercise where we all tell the truth about what we are feeding our families. It's funny, humble and gives you great ideas for [...]

The dreaded cough is back. I could have actually (and may have) cried when I heard it coming back on little Billy this week. His eyes were red, his nose was dripping, he was sneezing and coughing every five minutes and he was bloody miserable. How could my little sweetheart be sick AGAIN? Our little [...]

Competition Time | Shall We Have Breakfast?

I'm not a morning person... said no mother ever! It's generally not a choice to be honest. When you have a baby, you most certainly ARE a morning person. You have to be. Oh, and babies do not know what a weekend is, just to be clear. I remember I used to say the phrase, "I will [...]
