Cooking food that my child will actually eat

Another busy week bites the dust, and all of a sudden it’s British Summertime (not that you’d know it from the weather forecast), we’ve lost an hour but gained some daylight, and Easter is just around the corner. We had a good week this week of keeping to plan and that always pleases me, especially […]

Menu planning with my new cookbook ‘Get your kids to eat anything’

My food blogger pal Emily Leary, who writes a fantastic blog called A Mummy Too, recently published a cookbook called ‘Get your kids to eat anything‘, and kindly sent me a copy to review. It couldn’t come at a better time, as Ioan has literally this week started to test boundaries at the dining table. […]

Bob Bob Ricard, London (review)

I am not generally a fan of tofu: mainly because it doesn’t taste of anything and the texture is a bit weird – it […]

Meal planning during a hectic couple of weeks

Last week ended up not being entirely to plan: leek lasagne turned into Spag Bol (Quorn version for my vegetarian brother); I let the potatoes over-boil on Thursday and the mashed potato was too salty, leaving them inedible; and a little accident for Ioan on Friday (bashing his mouth, leading to a chipped front tooth) […]

GBBO week 10 – doughnuts

Okay, I know the Great British Bake Off 2018 finished LAST YEAR, but as you will have noticed, I am not blogging as regularly as usual at the moment, thanks to work and motherhood getting in the way of this lovely blog. However, last year I did complete my challenge of undertaking a Bake Off […]
