My Very Italian Courgette Pasta!

My Very Italian Courgette Pasta!

Today I want to share with you one of my personal favourite pasta dishes, even more so than Spaghetti bolognese! And it’s this Courgette, baby cherry tomatoes with garlic and basil and spaghetti, Logan loves it too!  The main reason behind cooking this dish was because I’d always get some sort of courgette pasta thing frozen from a ready meal, which was ok but I knew that I’d be able to make it myself for a fraction of the price,…

No Egg, No Milk easy peasy Pancakes!

No Egg, No Milk easy peasy Pancakes!

By now you’re probably fed up and have read about a million pancake recipes on the internet. But i wanted to share this particular recipe with you because of how it came about. So I’ll just crack on with it. (pardon the pun) Well the idea for this pancake recipe started one morning last week when we didn’t have much food in the house for breakfast/dinner and I was starving, so I looked in the fridge/cupboards to see what we…

Logan’s BLW feeding journey so far

Logan’s BLW feeding journey so far

We’ve been weaning Logan now for just over 6 months and it’s been one hell of a blw journey. I just can’t believe how fast he’s growing, I know I say it every single time I make some sort of Logan update but it’s true, being a FTM I didn’t quite know how fast it would go. Let me start from the beginning of our weaning journey and then I’ll get to where we are at currently a bit later on….

Kiddylicilous – My #wafermoment

Kiddylicilous – My #wafermoment

The lovely Emma Burgham, PR consultant for Kiddylicilous, recently contacted me and asked if I’d be interested sharing my #wafermoment, being a keen lover of the brand I jumped at the chance to get involved. The moment when Logan could start feeding himself and able to sit up unaided was a huge and emotional achievement, because not only was he growing up way too quickly it meant that every day that passed he was becoming that little bit more independent, even if I…

BLW – Banana, Blueberry and Peanut butter oat cookies

I have been wanting to make these cookies for quite some time now, and they are the most simple yet subtly delicious cookies i have ever tasted.

But guess what, it’s not just banana I’m using this time, there are blueberries and peanut butter too! What you will need: 1 ripe banana (Well mashed) As many blueberries as you like (GO…

Organix finger foods review (carrot sticks)

Organix finger foods review (carrot sticks)

While I was in town yesterday I was looking through the baby food section and thought well seeing as we’re doing BLW with Logan and he seems to be OK with the food I’ve offered so far I thought I’d pick up some of these Organix carrot sticks (yes they are basically bigger wotsits) but nonetheless Logan actually really loved them and since they melt in the mouth I wasn’t worried at all about him choking. Obviously I just offered…

What’s been on the menu today?

What’s been on the menu today?

For Logan’s lunch I thought I’d offer him something little as he had his breakfast (porridge) a bit later today but as you can see from the picture he loved it, I definitely think banana is his favorite fruit! I cut it in half and left skin on bottom half a bit like a banana popsicle, it was definitely alot easier for him to hold. For Logan’s tea I made him some spiral pasta, broccoli and cauliflower florrets no seasoning!…

BLW – Mummy’s homemade cheesy omelette 

BLW – Mummy’s homemade cheesy omelette 

Today I thought I’d try logan with some cheesy omelette for his lunch, was very easy to make, just whisk 1 egg, his formula milk and cheese and pour into frying pan until cooked. Much like the banana pancakes I made the other day, it ended up mostly on the floor! 🍳 I also gave him one of the pancakes I had left over along with small cubes of mild cheese, as well as his tommee tippee beaker which he’s…
