Spinach and Ricotta Pie
I am just back from a beautiful long weekend in the northern part of Italy, in Liguria, famed for its pesto and vegetable pies and, not surprisingly -- we ate like kings. There is something about the fresh products in Italy that seems to marry together perfectly, I never seem to be able to recreated the ...

Make Your Own Sunscreen at Home!
I was playing with an idea of making a sunscreen at home for a while because I’m very picky when it comes to them: they first need to be mineral without nanoparticles and can’t have any perfumes and/or nasty chemicals in them -- I even wrote a post a while ago about it. And when I ...

Cherry Pit Whipped Cream
We adore cherries! And we can seriously eat a lot of them (punnets and punnets in fact) in our house. So when we came across a super easy recipe for cherry pit whipped cream, well, we absolutely had to try it. It consists of 'leftover' cherry pits sitting in a bowl of cream overnight. Then ...

Barley Salad with Broiled Feta and Tomatoes
My sister introduced me to this delicious barley salad (found in the Kinfolk Table cookbook) last week and we loved it so much the first time she made it, we begged her to make it again a few days later. It's the perfect summer salad with the roasted tomatoes and feta adding more depth and flavour ...

Vietnamese-style summer rolls -- our children's favourite lunch!
After my recent post on school lunches, I received several requests to share our recipe for the vietnamese summer rolls my kids love so much. Michael makes these for the kids at least once a week and it's always a huge hit -- it's the one day of the week where all three kids come home ...

An easy and tasty potato salad recipe
My mum always used to make potato salad, following the recipe she learned from my grandmother. It is also my all-time favourite recipe -- with onion and chive and apple, it is so delicious and always a hit whenever I make it. But, it is also quite labour intensive, so I've been trying to create something more quick and simple, ...

Homemade Elderflower Cordial -- Fun Foraging with a Tasty Treat
Elderflowers are beautiful, lacy, creamy-white flowers, with a fabulous scent that smells like summer. The flowers grow on elder trees, and appear in hedgerows to signal the start of the sunny season. This weekend we just became aware of the yumminess of elderflower cordial and thought we would try to make our own homemade cordial. ...

A delicious and easy white fish dish
This is one of our children's favourite recipes (and mine too!) -- it is easy to make and delicious! I tend to make it when I'm not majorly inspired to cook, or when I have my mind on other things, but when I still feel like something light and healthy. Here's what I do (feeds our family ...

Homemade Vegan Pudding
We gave up cow’s milk quite a few years ago. We still eat plain yoghurts, cottage cheese and cheese but we only drink plant-based milk (our favorite is oat). I also replace the “normal” milk for the oat one in all the recipes and although dishes usually turn out just as (if not even more) ...

Spring Forgaging and a Delicious Wild Garlic Quiche
I love this time of year when the wild garlic season is upon us. Have you seen it around? You'll find it growing best shaded under trees, in deciduous woodland and where you'll find one plant, you will find masses of it together. And you'll be able to smell it of course! The scent of ...

Banana Pancakes... the Best Breakfast! (and only 4 ingredients)
Ok, we actually call these 'banana MAN-cakes' in our house, since it was one of the first phrases my daughter said, and it made us chuckle, and now it has stuck... so that is what we really call them. But whatever you call them, they are super delicious, quick to make, fuss free, healthy, and ...

Lactation Biscuits -- for increasing your milk supply
Wilkie weighed 3.8 kilos at birth (a big, tall baby!), and after the initial weight loss that most newborns experience, it took him nearly three weeks to put back on his birth weight. The midwives weren't overly concerned, especially knowing I had successfully breastfed four other babies, but they did start suggesting natural ways to ...

Braided Easter Bread -- A Family Tradition
  This Braided Easter Bread, known in Italian as Pane Di Pasqua, has become a family tradition. Although we have no Italian ethnicity in my family what so ever, adopting traditions is a great thing, right? Growing up, we always proudly placed this bread on our Easter Sunday breakfast table as a colourful and tasty centrepiece ...

They contain berbeerine, which has been used for its medicinal properties for a long time. The ...

A Fun First Birthday Cake (and it is sugar free!)

Cooking for a big group of people
Tamar's birthday was a few weeks ago. Because his birthday is so close after the Christmas and New Year celebrations, we don't always know if we feel like celebrating with even more food and drinks. So I waited 'til pretty much last minute until deciding I was up for organising a party... but in the end I did ...

A healthy and hearty vegetable and bean soup
Wintery Fridays are lazy days for us. We spend the afternoon at the manege for horse riding lessons, then we stop at our local shop to pick up bread, cheese and dips. We put on our pyjamas, light a fire, and watch a film together (or recently, we have been following the Dutch edition of ...

Little Tables -- Breakfasts from around the World
According to this article, Dutch children enjoy one of the happiest childhoods in the world, and one of the reasons given for this is the fact that many of them start their morning with 'hagelslag' (chocolate sprinkles) on their bread. I'm not sure how much influence the exact sort of breakfast has on the overall happiness of ...

We love baking during the Christmas season and these two cookie recipes we make every year.

There are more than a million words in the English language. We remember the most common term and associate more complex or less frequent words with that. So the clever people from @mrswordsmithofficial have developed cards linking word groups together. To make this memorable to children, they developed learning tools designed by comic book illustrators. Super fun and memorable, the designs are instantly associated to the word. So clever!

The Science of Siblings is a blog post Courtney wrote years ago. ( #linkinbio ) We love this quote from @time ... “From the time they are born, our brothers and sisters are our collaborators and co-conspirators, our role models and cautionary tales. They are our scolds, protectors, goads, tormentors, playmates, counselors, sources of envy, objects of pride. They teach us how to resolve conflicts and how not to; how to conduct friendships and when to walk away from them. Sisters teach brothers about the mysteries of girls; brothers teach sisters about the puzzle of boys. Our spouses arrive comparatively late in our lives; our parents eventually leave us. Our siblings may be the only people we’ll ever know who truly qualify as partners for life.” ️ #babyccinokids #siblings #science
