So, it’s Weaning Wednesday! Another week has just flown past, I can’t quite believe how quickly time is passing by. Molly is 7 months old today, that’s insane! She’s still loving the weaning journey. It’s great to watch her discovering new tastes – not so great to see it come out the other end. My god, how can such a…

Weaning Wednesdays – Tasty Homemade Fishcakes

This meal is great as it can be enjoyed by all of the family. The only thing I do differently for Chris and I is add salt and breadcrumbs to the fishcakes. These fishcakes are delicious and nice and soft for babies to eat. This recipe makes approximately 6-7 chunky fishcakes. Any left over fishcakes can be wrapped in clingfilm,…

Weaning Wednesdays – Lentil and Carrot Cakes

Weaning has been very interesting so far – lots of mess and lots of poops! Some days I feel like I spend most of the day in the kitchen. It’s all good fun though. I’m doing a mixture of baby led weaning and traditional weaning. I know a lot of people will jump at me saying, ‘that’s not baby led…

10 Minute Healthy Vegetarian Recipe

One of my favourite types of food is mexican. I absolutely love the combination of spices and heat. Unfortunately, I have to go easy with the old chilli now that I’m breastfeeding as it seems to upset Molly’s tum! Mexican food is great for chilled dinner parties or sitting down with the family and all getting stuck in. I love…

Reduced sugar, dairy-free banana & almond bread!

So, being dairy-free isn’t fun! I love cheese and it’s been hard to part with my dear friend, cheddar! I’ve only cut out dairy due to it not agreeing with my bubba (I’m breastfeeding). I’ve been trying to find alternative snacks to eat as everything seems to contain dairy! Therefore, I thought I’d make my own. I love baking, although…

Healthy spaghetti & salmon recipe

Healthy doesn’t have to mean salads and kale (although I do like salad and kale). Sometimes it’s easy to get bored when eating healthily, but this shouldn’t be the case. Most diets are incredibly restrictive which kind of sets you up for failure before even starting. I know if someone says I can’t have something, I want it even more!…
