Banana and Walnut Loaf Recipe

I don’t bake all that often, and when I do I have a handful of recipes that I am really comfortable with. I like easy recipes, cakes I can quickly make that the whole family will love. One of my go-to recipes is my banana loaf which has never failed …

Fruity Wheat Bisks

I shared earlier this week that we’ve been working with Princes and their #mumsontherun campaign. They are encouraging us to keep canned fruit in for easy and speedy breakfasts, ensuring less food waste whilst helping us to get one of our five a day. The kids have really been enjoying …

Easy & Fruity Breakfast Recipes

Things have changed around here at breakfast, thanks to being involved in Princes’ Mums on the Run campaign. Princes are encouraging us to stock up with their canned fruit range, helping us to serve up healthy and easy breakfasts for our families. I have to say, when I first got …

Warm Three-Cheese-Stuffed Bread

Warm three-cheese-stuffed bread is a title that would definitely get my attention. This is comfort food at its finest and its simplest, which is always a bonus. Now I should preface this post with two things; firstly, to name it a ‘recipe’ is really a stretch too far, it’s more …

The Giovanni Rana Famiglia Table Challenge

A couple of weeks ago we were challenged to take the the Giovanni Rana Famiglia Table Challenge. Not ones to shy away from a challenge, especially one that involves delicious Italian food, we decided to take them up on it. Italian food always goes down well here with all of …

So we all know that I am know culinary master, but today I am sharing a recipe of a dish that actually went down very well, and was so easy to make. On a recent outing, we had leek and potato soup as a starter and the Husband┬ámentioned that he’d …

Thank Mum It’s ‘Fries-Day’!

I cannot be the only mother who gets to a Friday and just wants an easy evening with the kids? I spend all of Friday working on the blog whilst the kids are at school and in nursery, so come 3pm as I leave the house, I just want to …

Orange & Chocolate Chip Biscuits

We don’t often have oranges in our house. The kids have never been overly keen and I’m not a big fan either. But over the weekend they chose some at the supermarket, so I thought that it would be nice to try a new recipe out whilst we had some …

Simple Fruit Smoothie Recipes

We bought a smoothie maker last week. Yes, just last week and yet here I am already blogging about it and sharing our favourite recipes. But though it’s only been around 10 days of smoothie making in our house, we have fit a lot of smoothie making into that time! …

Have you heard of Fluffy Eggs? If you haven’t, you are in for a treat today as I share my fluffy eggs recipe! This is a super-simple fluffy eggs recipe that the Husband and I discovered recently and we are now a little bit addicted to making and eating. It’s …

The Easiest Way to Cook a Chicken

We love a roast dinner here. But I admit, until recently I had never cooked a whole chicken. I know, I know, I’m odd! We had other meats such as pork, as I shared in my easy-peasy slow cooker pulled pork recipe, or I bought chicken portions. I always worried …

Sushi for Beginners with Yutaka

Have you tried sushi? Probably. But until now, we hadn’t, not one of us in our house. So when YUTAKA got in touch offering us the chance to give it a go, I jumped at it as I like us to try new things and I thought it would be …

Strawberry, Apple and Chocolate Crumble

I have long been a fan of crumbles, yet I rarely make them myself. My mum used to make them all the time for my brother and I, so we’ll still eat the odd one there every now and again, but I don’t think to do them at home. It’s …

Cheesy Ham Pasta

This has been a firm family dinner favourite here for years. The Husband and I enjoyed it prior to the kids arriving, and as it’s cheesy pasta, it goes down well with the children, too. It’s my fast and easy go-to meal if we’ve been out all day and I …

Lemon Drizzle Cake

Lemon Drizzle cake always goes down well in our house. It’s one of those favourites that every single member of my household eats, which is actually quite a rare thing for us.┬áMy mum sometimes bakes it for us, and it’s also my nephew’s favourite cake, so his birthday cake is …
