10 Wonderfully Warming Winter Dinners

10 Wonderfully Warming Winter Dinners

I love summer. I’m a summer girl. I love wearing lighter clothes, being able to work outside, it being light until late, and feeling the warm sun on my face. I also like that parenting always seems a little bit easier in the summer. There […]

After Eight Brownies

After Eight Brownies

After Eights are one of those things that aren’t really remotely christmasy. But, we eat them at Christmas, and don’t really have them the rest of the time, so they’ve become a Christmas food. To be fair, you could argue that this is true of […]

Banoffee Loaf Cake

Banoffee Loaf Cake

Bananas I love bananas. So do the kids, which means that despite the fact that I can’t stand them with any green or even a touch of brown and will only eat them for about a 2 hour period, we very rarely have any that […]

Christmas Rocky Road

Christmas Rocky Road

I love any kind of Rocky Road. It’s basically a fancy pimped up biscuit, and I’ve got so much time for that. Christmas is kind of the perfect time for it too, because there’s loads of yummy sweets and chocolates everywhere for you to throw […]

Daim Bar Tiffin

My Daim Bar addiction is now challenging my Ikea addiction. Honestly, our house is starting to resemble an Ikea showroom set up, and I buy a bag of Daim Bars every time we go. It’s getting dangerous on so many levels. I was intending on […]

What We’re Eating Week 6

What We’re Eating Week 6

There don’t seem to be any normal, standard, routine weeks at the moment. There’s always something going on. This week, we had Jim and Robyn’s birthday. It’s on the same day, 6 weeks before Christmas. It’s an expensive time for me! We normally go out […]

No-Bake Daim Bar Cheesecake

No-Bake Daim Bar Cheesecake

Oh, Daim Bars. How I love thee. Daim Bars are one of those things I’d completely forgotten about. I assume I at some point had them as a child because I knew exactly what they were. But, I don’t remember them. However, we moved to […]

What We’re Eating Week 5

What We’re Eating Week 5

So, I missed a week of what we ate. Actually, I think I might have missed two weeks. Basically, it was two weeks of joyous delight. The week before last started pretty normally. We ate nice normal family meals. Then on Thursday, I got a […]
