Ella’s Kitchen The Easy Family Cookbook Challenge

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 …

Now that the Christmas and New Year excitements are over, it’s time to settle into a little bit of a routine again.

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 …

Mini Banana, Blueberry and Chia Muffin Recipe

I am really struggling to keep my girls occupied this school holidays. They seem to do something for about ten minutes at a time if I am lucky, then they’ll want to do something else.

Nutella Cupcakes Recipe

I never used to like Nutella, I was always a proper chocolate spread kind of girl. Specifically a nice Cadbury one if I was to be picky. But Hubby stopped buying it and went for the Nutella and now we buy it in the kilo… Literally thanks to the new family sized jar. I really enjoy baking and so does …

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats Recipe

My friend introduced me to overnight oats a while ago but it has taken me months to find the courage to actually try them for myself. In fact at first I couldn’t imagine them to be very appetising at all but that’s because I am a very visual eater and also very picky with my porridge in particular. Now I …

Chocolate & Chia Seeds Overnight Oats Recipe

I don’t own a full length mirror. I’m not tall enough to see into our bathroom one and so I put up with a hand held one for my makeup in a poorly lit hall way. That’s how I dress myself each morning, relying on a quick glimpse in a shop window to double check I actually look half decent …

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 …

3 Easy Recipes For Children’s Lunches With Bernard Matthews

When P1 first started school she was a packed luncher. She loved it but I absolutely hated trying to find new, filling ideas to put in them each day. She ended up eating chocolate spread sandwiches, some fruit and crisps each day. So as soon as the Government gave free school meals for Key Stage 1, we switched to school …

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 …

Kids Fun At Home with I MUNE NURTURE

We’ve been experiencing some pretty awful behaviour with P1 lately. I’ve been doing a lot of research about it because I desperately want to help her to control and understand her emotions as well as understand them myself. This weekend I’ve especially been changing the things we do. Normally we like to use the weekend to recooperate after a busy …

Using Up Unwanted Easter Eggs – Chocolate Nest Recipe

Easter is just around the corner and if your children’s Grandparents (Great-Grandparents) are anything like ours, you’ll already have a huge stash of chocolate building up! We had said we weren’t going to give chocolate to the girls this Easter so I decided to create little chocolate nests to spread the chocolate consumption a bit better. It was also a …
