    Easter Cooking for your Little Ones with Tommee Tippee

    Easter is a time for enjoying time together as a family and doing lots of fun things with chocolate! As Catholics, Easter has a much deeper meaning than this but we have always done an Easter Egg Hunt with Mia and have done various different things with her on Easter Sunday over the years. Last year we did a Hunt with L.O.L Surprise Dolls and she absolutely loved it but this year we are keeping it much simpler! Mia doesn’t eat a lot of chocolate so family tend to buy her clothes and little things instead which is really nice. We also love Easter cooking and although we haven’t done…

    Family Friendly Recipes Anyone Can Make at Home

    I have been meaning to write about family mealtimes for ages and when I started thinking about Lottie and how she eats now, I found that one of the main problems I have at the moment is the fact that I am now cooking 2 hot meals every day at different times. This is fine when I have time to but more often than not, I don’t get chance to and I don’t always have a load of previously cooked meals in the freezer ready to whip out when I need one. We are always looking for family friendly recipes. Family Friendly Recipes Lottie is eating pretty much everything now…

    Easy Slow Cooker Chinese Curry

    One of my favourite kitchen appliances to use when cooking dinner is my slow cooker.

Perfect for batch cooking, this tasty, full of flavour curry is a fab weekend treat!

    Chicken Fajitas and Rice with Schwartz Cajun Seasoning

    We have been home cooking our dinners and the kid’s dinners for a while now. Don’t get me wrong, we have takeaways and ‘freezer’ days, but we are lucky that we both love to cook, and I really don’t mind spending an hour every afternoon cooking for us all. We also do a lot of batch cooking which is really useful for weeks where money is either a bit tight, we don’t have time to cook for whatever reason or just to use for lunches the next day! Our most loved and favourite meals are by no means complicated! They are easy, take under 45 minutes to make and can…
