I was only in the shops this morning and my local Centra is all set for Pancake Tuesday. The minute you walk in the door there’s shelves stacked with ready made pancakes mix. You know the one that you just need to add milk or an egg or something to the bottle or mixture. And do you know what it bugs the life of me! Pancakes are so simple to make and nine times out of ten we have all the ingredients in our cupboards. It’s literally a case of putting them all into a bowl and mixing them together. And if we happen to be missing an ingredient it’s probably cheaper to buy it than buying the ready made mixture itself. It’s just a big money racket in my opinion (like Valentines!) and really, who has the money these days to be falling for it? (more…)

I’m sorry Doidy Cup, this is not the most pleasant of reviews. As you can tell I haven’t much love for you. I did for about a week, and then it all backfired. Water and milk fired, fired at my walls, doors and floors. (more…)
A Tidy Tot is a bib and tray kit that eliminates the gap between your baby and the front of their high chair to give you mealtimes without the mess. It offers complete protection for your baby, highchair, and floor, so you can say goodbye to stained clothes, endless washing and constant cleaning.
Baby led weaning means letting your child feed themselves from the start of weaning. You serve your baby finger length foods and let them gum, suck, nibble and chew. With baby led weaning there is no puree, spoon-feeding or weekly batch cooking with ice cube trays. Basically baby eats what you eat. (more…)
I’m always baking with the big kid, mostly we destroy the kitchen and eat up, while the other-half cleans up the mess we’ve made. I’ve decided to add a new section to my blog sharing some of the yummy treats we have made. Here is our first recipe, a healthy biscuit made with porridge oats that you can basically add any filling too. They’re so easy you’ll make them all the time.
Cup of Porridge Oats
3-4 tbsp of Pureed fruit (we used pear)
2 tbsp of Coconut
Preheat the oven to 180 C or Gas Mark 4.
Pour the porridge oats, puree, coconut and raisins into a bowl.
Combine all ingredients together.
Grease proof a baking tray.
Spoon your mixture onto the baking tray into desired shape.
Bake for approximately 15 minutes until biscuits have turned a golden brown and leave to cool before removing from tray.
They make the perfect snack and the kids loved them. We got adventurous with our next batch and added some cocoa powder to make a healthy alternative chocolate biscuit. Next time I think we will try some maple syrup.
