Ask and you shall receive, my friends! Earlier this week, I made one of my fave ‘quick AF but tasty AF mummy meals’ - we all have that one dish that takes very little effort to prep, even less time to cook but feeds the entire family and leaves you feeling like a unicorn goddess … Continue reading Everybody Got Time Fo Dat! – One Pot Rice
Morning! Recently I’ve been stuffing myself with oats, oats and more oats for breakie as well as my daily chocolate protein Superfoods. But, as the as the summer sun slowly makes it way to us, I’m starting to lose that warm bowl of oats craving in the mornings. I still want to have my oats … Continue reading Bored of Oats? Have Chocolate Superfood Pancakes Instead!
Evening all! First off, what happened to our summer? This time last week I was putting ice cubes in tuppaware and leaving it underneath my Dumpling's cot to cool him down. Today, I'm layering him up in a sleepsuit and vest with a quilt! Typical British weather! Well, whilst we all ponder why all of … Continue reading N(ice) Cream for Nice Weather

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

Mum would be at the fishmonger in the morning and whisking up batter in the afternoon whilst chopping potatoes. So, naturally, I try to … Continue reading Have a bowla granola!
Now that my little dumpling is almost 10 months old (tomorrow!) and scoffing down all the food, I now spend most days thinking of ways to create meals that both we and dumpling can enjoy as a family. We are doing predominantly Baby Led Weaning with the odd 'pureed' foods here and there when we're out … Continue reading Drop (Scones) Like Its Hot
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?
