Pip & Nut *Reviews-Cookbook-Recipes*

Are you a nut butter lover? Then you need to read this! Plus, I’ve also got some amazing recipes to share from the new Pip & Nut Cookbook. I came across Pip& Nut when I was looking for snacks for my ‘Healthy Snack Boxes’. I was interested in their squeeze packs and thought these would…

Crab and Prawn Linguine

  Just over a month to go and we will be changing seasons! This week we had some nice sunny days that made me long for Spring. I’m looking forward to going outside without hunting down everyone’s hat, scarves and gloves. The gloves are the worst, we have lost so many the kids have had to wear odd gloves on…

Healthy 3 Ingredient Cookie

These are the easiest cookies ever as you only need three ingredients; Oats, Banana and chocolate chips. You could even make them for babies from 6 months old, just omit the chocolate chips. I made these chocolate chip cookies again the other day (with the help of my two year old) , as I quickly needed to prepare a after…

Mild Moroccan Turkey Meatballs and Couscous

Happy New Year to you all! I’m very excited about the year ahead…I’ve got lots of ideas of recipes, articles and lots lots more I want to share with you. Watch this space! Hopefully you’re past your Christmas Turkey overload by now as I wanted to share this Moroccan Meatball recipe made with Turkey mince. Perfect…

Nutty Cacao Balls

I still get surprised at how regularly my kids need a little snack. As they are so active, I find their energy levels can drop really quickly. One minute they seem fine and suddenly I’ll have a screaming toddler, who will not listen and give me no clue as to what is wrong. With time, I’ve…

Edible gifts to make with children

As Christmas is fast approaching I thought I would do a roundup of my favourite recipes out there for foodie gifts you could make with the kids. My little girl has been talking about Christmas for weeks now as they have been rehearsing for their nativity play at school but now it’s December it has definitely…

12 grains to try with the kids

    Lately, I’ve been doing a few nutrition courses to get a bit more knowledge on the subject and the main thing that stuck with me is how variety plays such an important part of a healthy diet. It makes sense if you think about it, different foods provide different nutrients so eating various foods every…

Pear Turnovers

September is a special month for us now as it’s my little boy’s birthday (he just turned two) but this year has also brought a lot of change: the start of school for my (big) girl and my youngest has also just started going to playgroup which means a bit more time for myself. Autumn also brings a lot…

Blackcurrant & Almond cake

I think this cake looks quite impressive but it’s in fact really easy and quick to prepare. It’s one of those recipes that I keep making again and again so I just had to share it! I make it with blackcurrant as I get loads at this time of year from my allotment but you could…

It only just came out on 12th May and you can win yourself a free copy! (To enter the competition all you need to do is comment…

Lentil Spaghetti bolognese

Cooking this lentil spaghetti for dinner today made me reflect on how my life has changed in the last five years. Life couldn’t be more different. We have moved from a busy London to ‘the countryside’ with the addition of two children who have become the centre of my world. One thing that hasn’t changed so much…

Avocado, Tuna, Sweetcorn & Cheddar Quesadilla

Right now is such a nice time with the kids. My 3 1/2 year old has grown up enough that I can have a conversation with her, she asks questions, wants to learn & help but still retains a cute innocence. My 18 month old is just starting to talk and hasn’t quite got to the tantrum…
