No-added sugar banana and blueberry muffins

When we started weaning Phoebe (over a year ago, where does it go?!) we felt quite strongly that we wanted to keep her sugar intake to a minimum. That's easier said than done when healthy and important food groups such as fruit and milk contain sugar, but we were keen to do our best to…

Review and Giveaway of Bakerdays letterbox cake

I love gifts that come through your letterbox. No more worrying about whether your parcel will delivered to the neighbours or shoved behind your wheelie bin, or how you will find the time to go and pick it up from the post office. So when I found out about bakerdays, a company which makes and distributes…

Why we love…The Collective Dairy Suckies yoghurts

Let’s face it, being a parent is hard. I’m sure we have all had moments where we question if we are doing a good job, wondering if we are doing the best for our children, and fretting about decisions we have made. Well that’s me a lot of the time. I’m the first to admit that…

Baby-friendly Slow-Cooker Chicken Casserole

At nearly 9 months Phoebe has certainly become more adventurous with her food, as well as dropping more of her milk feeds so she is hungrier for solids. As I mentioned in my Vonshef slow cooker review, I want to get her used to eating the same as us so once I’m back at work…

Christmas Gift Guide for Foodies

I’m well aware that Christmas is fast approaching and even though I haven’t bought, prepped, or planned a thing, I still wanted to put together some Christmas gift guides. Being a food blogger, I naturally started with a gift guide for foodie fans, but this year as I’m now a mum I’ve also put together…

Christmas Gift Guide for 6-12 month olds

The amount of choice available for Christmas gifts for little ones is staggering, with so many options out there. I personally think toys are always a winner, as babies grow so rapidly and newborn toys are quickly outgrown. One of my favourite brands for our daughter has been Hape, who make and sell beautiful toys…
