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. I find it a life-saver now that I have a baby. It’s so stressful when it gets to 4pm and you have a tired,…

Review: Sophie The Giraffe Teether

Teething is a tough time – for baby and for mum! It must be horrible having lots of teeth popping through, it’s no wonder babies become very grumpy and unsettled.

Slow Cooker Vegetarian Tagine

I’m secretly loving this colder weather we’ve been having recently. Mainly because it gives me an excuse to wear baggy jumpers and comfy clothes. However, it’s also great to be able to have more hearty meals cooked in the slow cooker! This recipe is full of nutritious vegetables and tastes great with either cous cous or rice. (Serves 4) Ingredients:…

Breastfeeding Past 6 Months

I can’t believe that Molly will be eight  months old in just under two weeks. I really get the whole ‘they grow up too fast’ phrase now. In fact, hearing that phrase used to bloody annoy me, but that was before I understood how completely overwhelming the love is that you feel for your own baby. The bond is just…
