If you follow Esther and Emilie on Instagram, you’ll have seen a few happy photos of their two families together in France! It’s a sweet summertime tradition for them. Being on the opposite side of the world, I will admit it makes me feel extra far away and sad to miss out on these wonderful […]

Your new favourite, easy peasy, allergy-friendly chocolate fudge cake

For our first playdate since lockdown has eased in the UK, I decided to bake a little chocolate cake with Joey to celebrate. I fancied a delicious, light, fudgy chocolate sponge cake, that was easy to rustle up with a 3-year-old’s help, and that everyone could enjoy. The tricky thing was working around the dietary requirements […]

Having recently watched the movie, ‘Hidden Figures’ with the girls I was beyond excited to have found, Counting on Katherine. It’s an excellent biography of Katherine Johnson who was the genius mathematician who helped make the Apollo 11 landings on the moon possible.

Courgette Citrus Drizzle Cake

This recipe was born out of necessity last summer when I was staying at my parents house and the vegetable plot was exploding with courgettes! It is a very simple variation on a classic lemon drizzle and it truly tastes like a slice of sunshine.  I used lemon originally but since I’ve been making it […]

The joys of shop- bought pastry when cooking with toddlers

Lily and I have been using shop-bought pastry so as she can make her own sausage rolls. Lily is two, and loves baking and making anything in the kitchen. When we have time and I’m in the mood to embrace the inevitable mess made when cooking with toddlers, and measuring everything out for her to use […]

State Park Adventures + Tips for Camping with Little Ones

COVID or not, one thing that luckily hasn’t changed in the past few months is our love of exploring a new trail in the mountains or an untouched beach here in North Carolina. Both options are just a few hours east and west of us. Through the State Parks here, we’ve learned about the Neuse […]

Little Green Fingers for the Summer Garden

Summer here in London is still young enough that we can get a good crop of veggies and herbs going in even the smallest of city gardens or balconies, and with that comes many opportunities of learning for my two little gardeners. Even though I am a trained Montessori teacher, it has been a learning […]

Super simple egg fried rice for little ones

This super easy egg fried rice is my go-to for at least one lunch and one dinner a week for Lily. I love that I can chop and change the veggies according to whatever I have in, that the main ingredient is one of her favourites (egg), and that it takes precisely 15 minutes to […]
