Review: Baby Cup is a hit!

Its official…I’ve a real cheeky chappy. One of those boys who likes to climb, empty cupboards, get messy, and pour. Let’s just say weaning has been fun but VERY messy. Give him a drink and he will find a way to somehow get the water out. Even if it is the type of cup that […]

This being our second baby I’ve been a teeny, tiny bit wiser to a few things… and a bit slacker on other things! I’ve thrown out all the normal baby books for one and let baby lead the way, so much easier, he naturally showed me his routine. I also bypassed the puree route and […]

My family love pizza and so I usually make extra and we have leftovers for lunches. However being picnic weather I don’t always find cold pizza transports well. So this weekend I played around with making pizza pinwheels which have promptly been names pizza rolls by Miss K.  Her initial comment was “Mummy what’s this” […]

Baby Led Weaning at 8 months.

It’s been just over 2 months since the baby  started on food, he has completely taken to it. I’m taking quite a relaxed approach to weaning him, just offering him 3 meals and a snack if he asks for one or grabs a bit of mine. So far I don’t think we’ve come across anything […]

Salmon and Spring Vegetable Risotto.

Risotto, it’s a staple in our house. I love the way you can reinvent it each time you make it. Weaning baby 2 has also remined me how it’s completely suitable for everyone in the family. He has been loving risotto from his first taste of it at 6 months old. So if you want […]
