Three ingredient easy cheesy pasta for kids – new recipe

I say this three ingredient easy cheesy pasta is for kids, but it’s very tasty so perfectly suitable for adults too. The pasta has a rich cheese sauce made directly in the saucepan you have cooked your pasta in, meaning less washing up … always a bonus in my house. What are the three ingredients? […]

Simple broccoli soup recipe (Vegan) – new recipe

When I started weaning Ioan onto solid food, he ate everything I put in front of him. Then, as he reached toddler stage, he began expressing preferences for the bland or sweet (or sausages). A few months ago, after starting pre-school, he suddenly started informing us that his favourite foods were “broccoli, carrots and peas” […]

Call it greedy, call it fortunate, but there is rarely a basic baking recipe where all the ingredients aren’t already in […]

Happy New Year 2018

Hey, it’s me! Remember me? Tracy from It’s Not Easy Being Greedy? The greedy blogger with a young baby? Last time I wrote anything was last October, so I can understand if you have forgotten about me … Truth be told, this motherhood and working lark leaves little time for blogging. I have had the […]
