It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Baby Led Weaning recipe, but I thought I’d share Molly’s favourite dinner with you – lentil and courgette fritters! I think Molly loves these as they’re really easy for her to pick up. It’s such a quick dinner to throw together and you can add any other vegetables you like. I sometimes…

Why We’re Going Vegetarian

I’ve never really eaten much meat in my diet, but I admit to enjoying the odd roast chicken or KFC! However, I nearly always choose the vegetarian option when I eat out, mainly because I actually prefer the taste of vegetarian food. I have often thought about what might be in the meat I’m eating, but I think like most…

Immune-boosting Salmon Salad

It may be autumn, but it’s never too cold for a salad! Plus, this salad recipe includes some lovely fried kale and grilled salmon to warm things up a bit. I love this time of year, but I don’t love the nasty bugs and viruses that come with it! A lot of people seem to be going down with coughs…

Slow Cooker Healthy Lasagne

I don’t know about you, but I love autumn. It’s the perfect time for warming casseroles and autumnal clothing! As I’ve said in previous posts, it’s great to be able to use the slow cooker again.

(Serves 4) Ingredients:…

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…

The Real Food Box Review

The lovely people from The Real Food Box sent me one of their wonderful fresh fruit and veg boxes to try. They deliver a great range of top quality seasonal produce all across Cornwall. ┬áThe majority of their produce is sourced from their farm (Trevilley) in Newquay.
