Summer seemed to take forever to arrive, the winter just wouldn’t let go of the weather spotlight. Despite its tardy arrival, summer is well and truly upon us and with the warm weather comes a change in how I eat and cook. Summer breakfasts often revolve around seasonal fruit, yoghurt and granola. The last few … More My Basic Granola
My middle kiddo loves a slice of bread or three. If left to her own devices, she would live entirely on the stuff. Thankfully for her sensitive tummy I’m onto her and try to limit her intake. I also make sure that the bread she eats is the good stuff, think spelt sourdough and homemade … More super easy wholegrain bread
Monday saw my kiddos go back to school after the Easter holidays and truth be told I did a little happy dance. Don’t get me wrong, I love having them home with me.

I’m definitely not one of those uber-organised, make-the-lunches-the-night-before kinda girl. I’m a more of a chuck-it-in-the-lunch-box-whilst-loudly-reminding-my-girls-to-get-their-school-uniform-on kinda girl. If I had … More Lunch Box Loving + Banana Bread
I woke this Monday morning to glorious sunshine and a disorganised kitchen. Family life got in the way of me organising anything for my girl’s school lunch boxes over the weekend. There were a few pieces of fruit and veggies knocking about, some cheese and wraps. I can work with that for their lunches. … More No Eggs? I am here to help.
My son was a little bit addicted to chocolate milk in his super fussy years. Just like his days of white-blond curls adorning his beautiful head have gone, so to have his super-fussy, refusing any food that didn’t come out of a boob days. In those dark and frustrating times he seemed to live … More Mackie’s Chocolate Milk
