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 …

This year 5-month-old LB will be joining us at the dinner …

Little Baker Picks – December

Didymos Didytai When LB was little I carried her in a stretchy sling from Victoria SlingLady. Now she’s bigger and heavier I’ve upgraded to a Didymos Didytai to give more support for both me and LB. I like that I can carry LB on my front, back or side with it plus it comes in …

Christmas Pudding Rum Truffles

These truffles are based on a rum truffle recipe I used to make and eat as a child. Often we would visit Mellors, a local bakery, and pick a cake. My favourite was a rum truffle and I can remember it being the size of my fist. Of course I now know that rum truffles are …

Make Eat Get Read Go – Dec ’14

I guess it’s inevitable what this MEGRG will contain, for festive frolics are just around the corner. Make Door wreath Every year I make our door wreath. One year it contained chilli & limes, the next year I made it from sprouts. Last year I went on a Blossom Tree wreath making workshop and I …
