It's all about the beans, baby. There's a sentence I never thought I'd write!
cherry and strawberry smoothie

It's safe to say we're a little bit obsessed with smoothies, guzzling them, and also and styling them up for pretty posts pre-slurping of course.
mushroom soup

Mushroom Soup

We are TOTALLY obsessed with soups in this house, the kids love them (such an easy way to get veggies down them) and we eat them all year round. Soups are NOT just for winter people!
lamb and vegetable soup

Live Peasant: Lamb, Vegetable and Lentil Soup with Cabbage

We love making midweek hearty meals here, those which we can cook up in a batch on the weekend or a Monday morning, freeze and then feed the hungry household throughout the week. One tray or one pot meals save time, are economical and make life easier for we busy parents who simply want filling, healthy, delicious food with minimum fuss and mess.
Quick Tuna Rendang On Wholegrain Rice

Quick Tuna Rendang On Wholegrain Rice

Rendang is a spicy meat dish that originates from Indonesia, but as my husband Peter doesn't eat meat, we developed this tuna alternative instead.

Mixed Berry Smoothie

We are utterly obsessed with smoothies in this family and this mixed berry delicious and healthy smoothie made using Iceland's Juicy Berry Mix (only £1.50 for a 500g bag) hits the spot for breakfast and beyond.
seared tuna with sesame

Sesame Seared Yellowfin Tuna, Pan-Roasted Garlic and Chilli, Served with Noodles

My husband Peter and I both love Japanese food. Pre-kids, we regularly dined out in our local Japanese restaurant and even now it is still one of our favourite date night cuisines, but unfortunately with two sons under the age of 6 we don't get to enjoy it as much as we would like. The solution? Make our own! And this beautiful sesame crusted tuna is as delicious as any restaurant dish I've ever tasted!
pumpkin soup

Pumpkin, Ginger & Coconut Soup

Halloween means pumpkins-galore and when we're not carving little faces into them here, we're carving them up to make delicious soup.
