My girls are becoming increasingly interested in cooking. I recently taught them how to toast their own crumpets and it was lovely to see their proud faces when they did it all by themselves (with assistance obviously). We were recently asked by Ella’s Kitchen to take part in a cooking challenge with the girls using their brand new cooking book named the …

Happy Pancake Day! Or Shrove Tuesday. It’s the last day to feast before Lent and Shrove Tuesday is more traditionally known for a day of consuming pancakes. We love pancakes in this house especially P1 and we have them every weekend when there’s time to stand and make them.  But this pancake day the team at Num Noms have challenged …

Easy Shortbread Recipe With Kids

Now that the Christmas and New Year excitements are over, it’s time to settle into a little bit of a routine again. P2 had been off of nursery for a full month and during that first week of January I could tell she was a bit bored and I quite frankly was frustrated by all the demands and emotions. On …

Learning More About McDonald’s Restaurants

I have many memories of McDonald’s. My Grandad used to take me for a lunch when we went to visit my Great-Grandad. My Mum frequently took me as a treat after my swimming lessons. I used to pop by with school friends. I headed there for my work lunches too sometimes. My Hubby also shares a love for McDonald’s but …

Halloween Chocolate Cupcakes Recipes

I have gone a little Baking crazy recently and I think P2 has cottoned on to this too. She asks me frequently if we can bake, it’s usually at the most inconvenient time but she’s getting really good at baking. I spotted some cute little Halloween cupcake decorations in Poundland the other day and instantly knew that P2 would love …

School holidays when you are a work at home mum is all about balancing everything. I’ve struggled in the first few days to accept the fact I’m getting a million demands in one hour let alone the full day! One particular day had been pretty darn stressful, we’d had yet more bad news for the car and panic set in …

Annabel Karmel’s Busy Mum’s Cookbook Review

I have started to really enjoy cooking and baking recently and my little collection of cookbooks is growing. One thing I’ve noticed is that since becoming a parent, my cook book collection is heavily dominated by Annabel Karmel. From weaning, child friendly and family cookbooks I have nearly everything to get ideas for new meals for my family. As a …

My Sunday Photo 2016 #9/52

We were up and out the door this morning for 9:30am to drop P1 off for her first service as a Brownie. It was the divisions Rededication Service and we were invited to go along and watch. I hadn’t realised it didn’t start for 45 minutes after we dropped P1 so we reluctantly decided just to pick her up at …

Valentines Jam Heart Biscuits

I used to hate Valentine’s Day. I felt it was very commercialised and a date in the diary specifically for people to make money from. Surely if you love someone you should be showing them that each day, not just one day out of 365. But then I joined the blogging world and this year I’m making an effort to …

Fluffy American Pancakes Recipe

I am guilty of opening up a batter mix sachet that costs just 30p and making up a batch of pancakes or yorkshire puddings. Pancakes are P1s absolute favourite breakfast and seeing as I am actually really enjoying baking and cooking recently, I decided to give some American pancakes a go today. Here’s the recipe for these yummy star shaped …

Talking About Sleep With Arla Big Milk #BigSteps

I am beginning to think I should be editing the caption of my blog to “A Blog From The Heart Of A Sleep Deprived Mum” because quite frankly, that’s all I seem to be blogging about lately. Sleep is a sore subject for me and that’s due to the lack of it. When I read back on when P1 was …

Last week we embarked on a mindful eating challenge. We were given the challenge by Legal and General who organised a five day recipe box to help us on our journey. Every single day of our lives we cook things that are convenient without giving it a second thought. So many times I’ve wanted to change the way we eat …

Persil Cook With The Kids

P1 wants to be a chef. She loves cooking, baking and everything in between. I hate cooking with children. Baking I can just about manage but cooking a meal is normally a no go situation. I hate the mess it creates when children are involved and it’s made even worse when they never listen to instructions. But I braved it when …
