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.

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.

Our Weekend in Pictures-Family Fun in Thirsk

It's already Friday again with a new and long weekend upon us with the bank holiday in the UK (yay) so I thought I better share last weekend with you all, and quick! I love reflecting on our weekends together, our precious family time, where we switch off from the week before, simply hang out, enjoy delicious food, at home, or out, and take in the lush Yorkshire countryside we live in and relax.

My Sleep Tips For Kids

My kids, Oliver (4 nearly 5 and Alexander, 2) have never been the greatest of sleepers (they take after me) but sleep patterns seemed to have gotten worse towards the end of the summer with a serious lack of structure, outbreaks of tonsillitis for my toddler and a period of nightmares (my eldest and I to be honest) pre-school starting! We were all shattered! Fast forward to Oliver starting and settling in at school (he's so happy), a more structured routine and a few dietary changes and the boys are sleeping better than ever. So, I wanted to share what has worked for us.
