Blueberry Yoghurt Cake

Blueberry Yoghurt Cake

This cake is currently being made on a weekly basis in our house. Florence (my one year old daughter) adores it. She sometimes has a slice for breakfast usually with a rather mismatched side of avocado (her most favourite food). Otherwise I will pop it […]

Olive oil: A guide to buying, recipes and health

There are so many types of olive oil on the shelves these days and working out exactly which one you should be cooking with / adding to oils and dipping your bread in can be a bit mind-boggling. So when Jamie’s Italian sent me a handy buyers guide […]

Review: SnuzPod, 3 in 1 bedside crib

So, Florence is now one year old. I know, I know, where has the time gone? Well, although I feel like it has flown by, I also feel like there were several moments, especially during the first 12 weeks where time just stood still. When […]

Mini four ingredient banana and blueberry pancakes (for babies and adults too)

Lemon and sesame kale crisps

Lemon and sesame kale crisps

A simple and incredibly health friendly recipe for those trying to avoid crisps (chips)! Obviously these aren’t the real thing, but neither are they full of a bucket load of unhealthy ingredients. They are crispy, flavour packed and take next to no time to make. Perfect […]

Double Chocolate Caramel Shortbread Squares

Double Chocolate Caramel Shortbread Squares

There is nothing more indulgent than chocolate, creamy caramel and a buttery shortbread base and this recipe is just that, but without the added sugar, grains, dairy or other additives. It’s one of my favourite recipes and one that I have made, to date, eight times […]
