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…

Healthy Granola

I had planned to post this recipe just before Christmas as I thought this would be the kind of breakfast I would love to wake up to on Christmas day. We were away staying with family and in my head I thought I might make a batch of this granola to take with us and…

Almond, Honey & Blueberry Overnight Oats

I don’t know what mornings are like in your household but if they are anything like ours, they are often hectic with trying to shower, get everyone dressed, fed and ready to go out & start the day. Breakfast with my two year old daughter seems to take forever at the moment! She hardly ever…

10 Super Quick & Healthy Toddler Meals

Buckwheat pancakes with Ricotta & Spinach (Galettes de Sarrasin)

A traditional pancake from Northern France, these galettes de sarrasin are quickly cooked in the pan for a minute or two, served…

Millet croquettes

Millet, which you can find in health food stores, is super healthy, gluten free and easy digestible. It’s a…

Caponata Aubergine Stew

Caponata is a Sicilian Aubergine Stew that has become one of our regular family meals. It’s on our menu most weeks! It’s so versatile; you can serve it hot or cold and have it with bread, pasta or couscous. We usually have it with gnocchi. Traditionally Caponata would be made with celery as well as…

Pear Tarte Tatin (refined sugar-free)

We have a pear tree in our garden that never stops to amaze me at how much fruit it can produce.  They are deliciously sweet conference pears and at this time of year I always have to find ways to use them up. In the past, I have made jars of mulled pears, chocolate & pear…
