Family walks and how to display collected treasures

Do you have a Lego obsessed child? And do you struggle to find a good storage solution for all those nasty little pieces? I have tried all sorts of baskets and boxes before. I have even tried boxes with different inserts so Lego could be organised according to shape and colour. But in the end, the one Lego ...

TUESDAY TIPS
A simple tip for sorting your laundry faster
How much time do you spend washing, folding and ironing laundry per week? Even with the help of my husband, my children and our cleaning lady, I still spend at least half a day a week working on it. If not more! I was just sorting through the laundry, and while folding the the boys' ...

2011 Calendar from Ink+Wit
Every year I wait until it's too late to buy a new calendar -- and by the time I think to do it (usually January 1st when it becomes a must!), it seems my favourite ones are all sold out. So... this year I am somehow VERY on top of it because I am the ...

‘Poaching a whole chicken is actually one of the most straightforward and hands-off processes and, for some reason, feels particularly rewarding and holistic. The chicken is so succulent and flavoursome that really you need very little with it!’ Read the how-to on our blog today — shredded poached chicken is delicious in salads and sandwiches or served with rice or noodles for a quick Asian-inspired meal. (Added bonus, of course, is the beautiful broth you are left with! ) #babyccinoeats #poachedchicken #familycooking @ieatmypeas
