Pear Rock Cakes, no added sugar.

It’s been a week of pretty awful sleep. That saying about “They saved the best till last” is not true when it comes to sleeping babies. The third baby is the worse sleeper! However she also gives the best cuddles and is super cute with it, so I can’t be cross with her. When I […]

Easy Peasy Star Biscuits

So when your toddler asks to make star biscuits, you can’t really say No. I’m not a fan of my kids having too much sugar so we always are on the look out for ways to reduce the sugar content of our baking, here we have used just a little apple juice and it worked […]

Healthy Oaty Cookies

My kids love to get involved in the cooking. Usually they see my cooking, draw up a stool and join in. Yesterday we had a rare afternoon at home. The summer has been full on outdoor fun, so being torrential rain the kids came up with a plan “Mummy lets make biscuits”. Normally I would […]

Lean and Bean Burgers.

So one of the ways I get inspiration for meals and recipes is to go shopping. This week I went to Asda, not our usual supermarket but we went as someone had told me they had skipping ropes and hula hoops reduced right down. Just to interject here, shopping with a 3 month old, almost […]

Courgette Pancakes (WF/GF)

I’m on a mission to find new ways to get veggies into the boy. He likes veggies and on a good day will eat pretty much anything. However when he is under the weather or teething he pulls a right face and hands it all right back to me. Which is frustrating. I find as […]

A lovely Pilates client turned up with a couple of healthy muffins for me the other day. Now that’s one way to make me go easy on you in class 😉 Laurie, thankyou! Peanut butter is one ingredient I’ve learnt is good in cookies and smoothies… so why “nut” muffins?! (I know funny aren’t I). These […]

Broccoli and Cottage Cheese Scones (Wheat free/Gluten free)

Total madness this weekend. I planned to do a vlog with Miss K. Just as we were ready to go J-boy woke from his “not long enough but I’m teething” nap. Not impressed. I’ve learnt that cooking with 2 kids is much harder than cooking with 1. You need 6 hands.  But he joined us anyway. […]

Homemade bready swirls/pinwheels

So this is our first vlog in a long time. It’s taken me a while to work out a time when my kitchen is not looking like a bomb has hit it, whilst also having 2 happy kids and a charged video camera. Phew. I made it.  Lunches are the one meal that I really […]

Homemade Fish Fingers made by a toddler

My 3 year old has been watching, helping and cooking with me since she was a baby. Whether in a sling, a bumbo, highchair or stood on a stool she has always loved it. Mainly because she gets to eat it, and this girl is a true foodie. Given the choice of what to have […]

Great Balls of….Goodness

I’m constantly on the look out for quick, easy, healthy snacks. Life with a toddler and baby with 2 businesses to run means I’m constantly on the go running from the kids to a Pilates class to cooking dinner or to a clinic. So with some baking time on my hands the toddler and I […]
