Morning! I must apologise for my radio silence these past few weeks - my only explanation is having a very active 2 year old and a 5 month old who is VERY snuggly. So much so, that apart from the very bare minimum of getting a 20-30 minute workout in at the arse crack of … Continue reading Ain’t Got Time Fo’ Dat? – 5 Min Banana Bread
Afternoon! The last few weeks have been filled with newborn snuggles, nappies, sick, sleep deprivation and toddler life - basically I’ve been parenting HARD! But I’ve done my best not to let my health slip because my 8 week old is a greedy beasty and nurses ALOT so I need all the energy I can … Continue reading Mama Muffins!
Merry Christmas! Whilst most kids loved to see presents under the tree at Christmas, I always remember my favourite part of this time of year was all the food! We were very lucky to have a mum who made everything from scratch - sausage rolls, stuffing, bread sauce, yellow cake, coconut bread (Bajan households know!)...everything … Continue reading ‘Tis The Season…Homemade Brandy Mincemeat
Afternoon! I’m coming to the end of my second trimester in this second pregnancy and I’m constantly, relentlessly hungry. Al the time. So far though, I’ve eaten relatively well during this pregnancy, save for the 6-12 weeks period where I had ‘morning’ Sickness but never actually threw up, just feeling sick in the evenings until … Continue reading Snack Attack – Chocolate PB Cookies
Morning all! What a miserable rainy cold day in London today! Luckily, once the oven is on, the house warms up very nicely. That gave me an excuse to get cosy in the kitchen and bake some treats for my Lil Dumpling😆 I had two sad ripe Bananas in the fruit bowl and some blueberries … Continue reading It’s Raining So We Baking!
Afternoon! I had two sad and lonely overrripe Bananas sitting in my fruitbowl this weekend. You know when they get so upset that when you pick them up, the stall falls off and their ends are then exposed? I'm talking REALLY depressed Bananas. Not one to throw food away too often, I decided I'd put … Continue reading Everyone Loves Flaps!
Evening all! So, after 13 months of Maternity Leave and living in a baby bubble with our lil Dumpling, I went back to work work work work work work today. The hardest part about today was, funnily enough, nothing to do with leaving dumpling (he will now be busy terrorising Grandma for 4 days … Continue reading Have You Seen The Banana Oat Muffin Man?
So, our Dumpling decided to start walking at 10 months 😱This is great, but it does get tiring running around after such an energetic baby! Whether it's a baby you're running after or just life in general, every now and then we all run low on fuel during the day and need that 'pick-me-up' to … Continue reading Iron Man Muffins
As a British person, I've never understood why Americans call, what are essentially dumplings, 'biscuits'. When I went to New York in 2012, I constantly saw 'biscuits' as a side order on restaurant menus. I never ordered them because I couldn't understand why anyone would want a Rich Tea or Bourbon with their restaurant meal. … Continue reading Tea & Biscuits
My little dumpling turned 8 months on Friday! He's crawling, climbing and cruising all over our living room now, so it's time to childproof our home. Amongst all that, my eating habits haven't been the best in the past few weeks. I have been eating far too many peanut M&Ms and bread. It was fine … Continue reading Have You Seen The (Maple) Muffin Man?
