International Day Of Happiness ♡


Happy International Day of Happiness  If I said I was ‘happy’ everyday I would be lying. I am certainly not a ray of sunshine everyday but I really do try to be. What I can say however, is that everyday I am optimistic. I am definatley a glass half full kinda girl. If I am …


Homemade Chicken Kebab’s


As much as I love cooking, working part time doesn’t always allow me to put as much effort into our dinners now. It was becoming too much of a rush finishing work, doing the Nursery pick up, the BF pick up, bedtime routine & then cooking a home made dinner – tiring stuff. I really …

Creamy Salmon & Brocolli Pasta


For a subtle way to introduce Salmon in to your kiddies diet, you simply cannot go wrong with this recipe. It’s so easy to prepare & cook. When I make it I ensure I cook extra so that I can freeze. It’s the easiest dish just to wack out of the freezer the night before …

GYM – Get Yourself Motivated – Get Yummy Mummy


As it stands, (well a few weeks ago, Pre Christmas) weight wise I am lighter and healthier than I have been in years. Everyone who really knows me, knows that I am a self confessed binger and serial snacker. Always have been and part of me always will be. I am not here to preach …

Frozen Fruit Smoothie


This week, Joseph had a double whammy – a cold & teething, three new teeth poking through to be precise. As a Mum, there is nothing worse than seeing your child in pain. I can always tell the cries from the crocodiles with my little guy.  Joseph has; the moans, the ‘crying’ with no tears, …


‘Make you Banana Pancakes, pretend like it’s the weekend’


As previously mentioned,  I am always trying to find new and different things to give to Joseph at meal times. The thing is, like most toddlers and children, Joseph can get bored of things pretty quickly! He has the usual; Cornflakes, Weetabix, Toast, Omelettes, Scrambled eggs etc but I think he gets as bored eating …

Product Review: Organix Berry Crispy bars


Since weaning my little guy,  the Organix Rice Cakes have been a permanent product for us. I was introduced to the range through their rice cakes and due to the variety of flavours, Joseph has always been a big fan. The ‘fruit pots’ are another favourite too – highly recommend! https://www.organix.com/our-baby-toddler-foods/raspberry-blueberry-rice-cakes https://www.organix.com/our-baby-toddler-foods Organix promote a ‘no junk promise‘ and …

Kiddylicious – Product Review


When Kiddylicious asked me if I would like to try some of their products I couldn’t respond quick enough! Joseph (and the bf) are already big fans of their wafers and to be honest.. at times they have kept me sane! As soon as we are through the front door from nursery, I literally run …


Toddler tuna pasta bake


I don’t love that Joseph is getting older, however I love that with age he can pretty much eat anything within reason. I love experimenting and that he is loving new things. I was quite fussy growing up so I really want to try and get Joseph to be a bit more adventurous with his …


Josephs cous cous salad


This is currently one of Joseph’s favourites – not to mention the fact that it keeps him occupied for longer so it gives me a chance to give the kitchen a clean or prep for dinner!  You can get the original recipe from Annabell Karmel, however I have changed a couple of bits in mine in accordance …
