I managed to snap a couple photos of my little helpers and thought I would share. If you haven't yet discovered the Smitten Kitchen brownie recipe, you ...

Little Paris Kitchen
Have you heard of Rachel Khoo of Little Paris Kitchen? I have to admit, I am  a little obsessed by her. I love the idea of a cute English girl cooking French dishes in a tiny kitchen in Paris. I think what won me over was her video I found on Youtube of how to ...

The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook
My favourite cooking website is, without a doubt, the Smitten Kitchen blog. Deb Perelman's posts are hilarious and easy to read and she does not take herself too seriously. Just the kind of person I would love to take cooking tips from. You might have noticed that Courtney and I have started linking to Deb's ...

One for the Guys
When we were staying at my dad's house in France a few weeks ago, there was a copy of 'Fired Up' by Ross Dobson hanging around in the kitchen. Obviously left behind by one of the house guests -- my dad never cooks! My husband on the other hand, even though not the cook in ...

Bean and Tomato Stew
We had one of those lovely lazy days yesterday. It is such a rare occasion in our household for me to get very excited about not having to leave the house. In fact I got so excited that I did not realise the fridge was practically empty. So, to avoid getting out of my slippers, ...

Food is Fun!
It's not necessary to convince my daughter Sara about the pleasures of eating -- she has loved food since I first put a spoon in her mouth (unlike her little baby sister Ava). So this fun food book by Anorak is just perfect for her -- we've been reading it together and already tried out ...

Berry season
I remember as a kid I came home during lunch break and my mum sent me to the neighbours (who had a strawberry farm) with a very little amount of money and I came back with a wooden crate filled to the top with strawberries -- the reddest, sweetest, biggest and tastiest variety you can ...

A Hearty Breakfast for Valentine's Day!
With Valentine's Day approaching soon, I couldn't resist purchasing this amazingly cool heart shaped frying pan. I'm not yet sure whether I'll serve the pancakes or the eggs, or maybe both... But I'm positive my family will love them (and me)! I got mine from this shop here in the Netherlands, but it's -- among ...

I found this recipe in a lovely little ...

Everything Under the Sun is a new book out by Molly Oldfield. The book is a collection of answers to 366 curious questions asked by children from around the world. Fascinating facts are accompanied by vibrant illustrations from a selection of great illustrators, making the book as cute as it is educational. The book is based on the award-winning podcast @everythingunderthesunpod also by Molly Oldfield, where she and other experts answer questions sent in from children. We’ve been listening to Molly’s podcast episodes in the car, and we’re all learning so much! We’ve learned about bees and wind, narwhals and unicorns, to Egyptians and mummies. It’s so cute! I can’t recommend the book highly enough. Whether you read a question a day, or dip into it whenever you are feeling curious, this is a book to treasure and share all year round. It would also make a wonderful birthday gift for any young person in your life. @mollyoldfieldwrites @courtneyadamo #babyccinobooks #babyccinoreads
