Courgette Loaf -- a healthy snack children will love
It's no secret we love to bake and we've realised one of the advantages of lockdown is that we have far more time on our hands after school to bake. I've been testing out a few more vegetable based bakes so I can sneek some extra nutrients into the girls during their snack time. They ...

Make and gift a festive simmer pot
Have you ever thought about how powerful the olfactory memory is? Many times, different smells take me back to a particular moment in time -- often a childhood memory. Spices have always been around our house.  African food needs quite a bit of it! The smell of delicately balanced ginger and cloves will always remind ...

A more economical, environmental, and sustainable approach to a season which has started earlier this year than ever before. Could we all peak too ...

Bee’s fruity protein “cake” balls, delicious and easy to make at home!
My 2-year-old girl is really into those great, snack-sized fruit and nut protein bars and balls. You know the ones that are full of nuts, fruits and natural ingredients? But invariably wrapped in single-use, non-biodegradable plastic? And factory made? If you, like me, are trying to reduce the amount of plastic I use, here is ...

Homemade chicken soup -- deliciously healthy and healing
A few weeks ago I posted about Ava being sick, and about our 'sick day' family traditions. I loved reading about all of your families' sick-day traditions too, and I thought it was especially amazing to hear that most of us still remember being sick as a child ourselves. We seem to have such warm ...

Cranberry Garland -- a simple little Christmas craft and decoration
Growing up, we always made cranberry garlands for our Christmas tree at home, and after posting a photo of my daughter making them last year on Instagram, I was surprised to realise it is not common in Europe! People loved the idea, and kept asking me how to do it, so I thought I would ...

Sweet and sugar-free Valentine's party
I love to create small and sweet celebrations out of holidays, and Valentine's Day is no exception! While I was heavily pregnant last year, I wanted to do a fuss-free Valentine's Day 'baking' activity with my daughter, but without the dreaded sugar crash afterwards. So we made watermelon hearts, which are bake free, and only sweet ...

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
