In the kitchen- Creamy cauliflower garlic rice

I have finally discovered how to get Georgie to eat cauliflower. All I had to do was mix it up with butter, garlic and of course remember to break out those snow peas he loves so much, as a sider. We’ve tried mashed cauliflower in the past, which I swear is almost just as good […]

In the kitchen —Mini vegetable pot pies

Georgie woke up unusually early this morning. ‘Mummy, I want carrot cake!’ he shouted every five minutes until I got up.

I would have posted this under In the […]

In the kitchen— Mushroom and spinach omelette

As much as I like to cook, I have noticed that I tend to avoid complicated recipes. A never-ending list of ingredients scares the shit out of me. I love a good challenge in the kitchen but most days I want to avoid the hassle.  That’s why I love quick, simple, get to the point […]
