Little Baker Picks – April ’15

It’s been a few months since I wrote one of these posts. A draft posts sat ready, but before I had time to edit and publish it LB had grown up and moved on to something else. So while I’m lucky enough that she has settled herself into a predictable nighttime sleep pattern (we won’t …

Little Lunches – Vegetable Eggy Rice

We’ve gone down the baby-led weaning route so LB usually eats what I eat. As I’m getting more confident feeding LB I thought I’d begin to share the recipes I make for the two of us eat in a series called Little Lunches. We’re usually at home for lunch and while sandwiches in the pre-weaning days …

Weaning – 3 months on

Time is speeding by and we’ve been on the weaning journey for nearly 3 months now. As mentioned in previous posts we ended up going down the baby-led-weaning route as it worked best for us.We’ve come a long way since that first munch on broccoli and there has been an unexpected benefit for me – …

Baby Tortilla Pizzas

We’re still relative beginners at the weaning game but we’re rapidly learning what will work for Lily and so far there’s very few foods that have been rejected. Ask me again a few years when LB has decided her current favourite, broccoli, is the worst food we could feed her. Last weekend after a longer …

Weaning beginnings – Raspberry Cheesecake Pancakes

Time is speeding by since LB’s arrival in July. Before we knew it it was time to start weaning. I don’t want this post to be a debate about weaning as I know it’s a very personal (& contentious) issue. We decided to go with current NHS advice and wait until LB was 6 months …

Stained glass mosaic course – Denman College

You may or may not be aware that the Women’s Institute (WI) have a college in Oxfordshire called Denman where they run cookery, craft and lifestyle courses. You don’t have to be a WI member or female to go. It’s open to everyone. While I was heavily pregnant I won a bursary to help cover costs towards …

Christmas Pudding Krispie Cakes

This Christmas is going to be very different for us. Last year was spent it telling our families of the impending arrival of Little Baker (LB) by giving the future grandparents this book and counting the seconds before the penny dropped and tear/squeals started. This year 5-month-old LB will be joining us at the dinner …
