RECIPE l Sweet Potato And Coconut Soup

By | July 12th, 2015|Parenting, Recipe, recipes|0 Comments

You know when you just get something in to your head and there's no telling you? Well I've been flirting with this soup idea for a while now. It's not even particularly creative, but I wanted to recreate a certain type of soup that I totally obsess over when I come across it in a [...]

Recipe I Homemade Vegetable Fingers

By | June 21st, 2015|back to work, Recipe, recipes|3 Comments

Quick post. A couple of people have asked me for the recipe for these handy vegetable fingers, so I said I'd jot it down once and for all. They really are a super little thing to have stashed away in your freezer for lunch time, snacks or a dinner on-the-go. They are filling, full of goodness, [...]

Recipe l Baby/Toddler/Human Friendly Shepherds Pie

By | June 15th, 2015|Recipe|1 Comment

OK, so I lied. I don't think I can technically call this Shepherds Pie because it contains beef mince rather than lamb's mince. It's probably more of a Cottage Pie truth be told. To me Shepherds Pie was always a beef mince situation, so it's all gravy. See what I did there? I generally like to [...]

1st Birthday Baking

By | June 11th, 2015|Recipe|5 Comments

So this all started as a pipe dream. I had imagined creating some sort of fabulous cake for Billy's birthday, and of course it would have to be accompanied by some cupcakes. I had never really made either before though. We had ordered Billy's birthday cake and everything was sorted in that department. But I [...]

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 Glenisk Family Fish Pie

By | March 29th, 2015|fish pie, glenisk, Recipe|2 Comments

Billy pretty much eats everything that we eat now. It's really handy and a lovely stage. If anything it makes us eat healthier dinners. 90% of what we cook is made with Billy in mind. Lots of vegetables, fresh produce, no added salt (until Billy's portion has been taken out) and variety is the spice [...]

Recipe l Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free Banana Bread.

By | March 23rd, 2015|baking, banana bread, gluten-free, Recipe|0 Comments

You would really think that I would be all banana-breaded out at this stage wouldn't you? This is actually happening. I can't promise, but I'd be fairly certain that this will be my last banana bread recipe. I'm delighted that the sugar-free baby banana bread received such a good response. Friends and family have tried it [...]

Recipe : Better Than The Jar Pasta Bake Sauce

By | March 16th, 2015|Dolmio, pasta, Recipe, sauce|3 Comments

Right, I know that the aim of home cooking is not to replicate the flavours of processed food. But sometimes it is right? You know when you find a product you really like, and you manage to recreate that in to a somewhat healthy manner? Well that is a big victory in my book. I [...]

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 [...]

Feel The Fear And Vlog Anyway.

By | February 24th, 2015|adventure, Baby, camera, cook, family, fear, mother, Parenting, Recipe, video, vlog, vlogger, youtube|0 Comments

For months now I've been toying with the idea of vlogging. I personally love to watch different vlogs and Youtubers and can spend hours watching videos that on paper might sound utterly boring, but to those who's boat it floats, it's so entertaining and enjoyable. My favourite vlogger is most definitely Sprinkle Of Glitter. My [...]
