Gelateria 3bis -- calling all ice cream lovers in London
Gelateria 3bis is a great way to keep summer alive as Autumn gets closer! We are so lucky (or is it so very very dangerous?) to live in walking distance to this gelateria on Portobello Road in Notting Hill. The thirty year old recipe and shop, famous on the Adriatic Coast in Rimini, Italy, is ...

Boca De Agua - Mexican Popsicle and Ice Cream Shop in Venice
As the name suggests, Boca De Agua is a mouthwatering popsicle and ice cream shop, located on Abbot Kinney in Venice.

OLUFs Frisklavede Italienske Ispinde – Inventive ice lollies in Østerbro
There are two important things to know about Denmark – truths that exist seemingly in spite of one another. First, it's a country on the cool end of the weather spectrum (and if you're reading this in winter, you may think this an understatement!). Second: ice cream is a Big Deal here. Danes love ice ...

Il Laboratorio del Gelato
I've mentioned before that we're an ice cream-loving family, so much so that we've identified our go-to favorite ice cream spots in neighborhoods across the city for quick reference should we happen to be in the general vicinity. Il Laboratorio del Gelato tops that list when we happen to be on the Lower East Side or ...

La Newyorkina
My husband passed his love of popsicles on to our daughter, and despite the arrival of cooler weather here in New York, they're both convinced it's very much still popsicle season. Our local coffee shop, along with nearly 30 other locations around the city, carries a small selection of the La Newyorkina paletas (Mexican ice popsicles made by ...

OddFellows Ice Cream Co.
I would argue that while it's important to have a favorite ice cream place, it's perhaps even more important to have a favorite ice cream place in as many neighborhoods as possible. Weekend socializing, errands, and exploring often take us out of our immediate corner of the city, and I like feeling secure in my knowledge of where we might ...

Ample Hills Creamery
Some might be hard-pressed to think of these winter days, with temperatures below freezing and biting winds blowing, as ideal days for ice cream, but our little family begs to differ. Our plans last weekend took us near enough to one of our favorite ice cream shops that I lobbied for a stop, and we ...

Today’s new post from Lara “Seek is the one and only app that our (young) children use. It started in lockdown over the Spring, as things sprung to life, and our children would ask us ‘what’s that?’ So my husband found the answer, which was for all of us to learn more from the world of amazing digital technology by using a free app (and find out more about the amazing world!). We think it is so outstanding actually and have told so many friends and family members to use it too, because it teaches them about the world and nature! I should quickly add that this is not a sponsored post! It is just a great tip I wanted to share.” And we love this thought... “You don’t have to travel far to find weird and beautiful wildlife. Your garden, local park, street tree, window box or the verge alongside a local footpath are rich ecosystems filled with species… you’ll be able to identify any living thing in your patch – plants, flowers, insects, fungi, birds and animals. It’s like having a naturalist in your pocket! When you ID a species you’ll be able to find out all about it, and see how common or rare it is for your area and the time of year.” More about the app in our bio link. But tell us, are you using any interesting educational apps for nature or science? ps And stay tuned for more about her holiday on a lighthouse island in @laraoflondon ‘s post next week! #babyccinokids #babyccinotips #babyccinotravels #seek

Autumn Equinox — a note from Esther... “I was talking to Lara earlier today, and she was reminding me of the start of Autumn happening today. Autumn! Today, the bright daylight hours and the dark nightly hours are of equal length. From now on, the days will get shorter, the nights will get longer… until the longest night, Winter Solstice (taking place on December 21st) will mark the beginning of the Winter season. Today is Autumn Equinox: the night and the day are in perfect balance. It marks the moment of the sun entering Libra (my star sign!), bringing harmony and stability, and which is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. All good things, and definitely things we need in these uncertain, difficult and turbulent times. Autumn is when the air starts to feel crisper and smell muddier, when the colours of nature are intensifying before they change colour, when the light is low and magical, when the days get wetter and the weather gets windier. It is the time to harvest apples and nuts and pumpkins, to make pies and soups and stews and to cosy up the house with rugs, pillows and blankets. Fall is so cosy! To celebrate this First Day of Autumn, I thought it would be nice to make a list of all the little things, family traditions and crafts we love doing in fall. Most we have posted about before, but there are some new ideas and things I want to try as well. Going through old posts and getting this list together has been so inspiring — yes, we are entering the darker and colder months, but there is so much to do and make, and many of these activities are super simple and made with whatever nature supplies us with. Fall truly is fabulous!” xx Esther Enjoy @estherbabyccino fifteen favourite fall activities to get inspired, link in bio. #babyccinokids #babyccinotips #autumnequinox @maudfontein 🧡

Vegetable bolognese anyone? This ragu is seriously, seriously delicious, packed full of vegetables and extremely straightforward to make – a chuck it all into the pot and pop it in the oven recipes! It’s also great for using up leftover/sad vegetables in your fridge. See Lyndsay’s recipe on the bio link. @ieatmypeas #babyccinoeats #babyccinokids

Often seafood suppers seem complicated, and a bit pricey. But @laraoflondon’s family have perfected a Crab Linguine pasta dish this summer that we had to share with you.
