Blossom - A Vietnamese Restaurant in Los Angeles
When Andrew and I first met in Los Angeles, we established rather quickly that we had in common a love for Vietnamese pho soup. One of our first "pho dates" was at a Vietnamese restaurant called "Blossom" in Silverlake, but the restaurant didn't have a sign on the building. It was a mystery place you ...

School lunch ideas
When we lived in London, the children were able to eat lunch prepared and served by their school. We were lucky that the school's lunch options were mostly good and healthy, and we didn't have to think or worry about what they would be eating at lunch time. (Thinking about it now, I don't think ...

Quiche on my mind...
It's spring, and my mind is set on quiche. I'm not exactly sure why -- is it the combination of the flaky puff pastry crust with the creamy filling and the salty cheese melted on top? Is it the fact that it is so easy to prepare? Or is it just because it's the perfect dish ...

Recently, Sara has been complaining about her current water bottle making funny sounds when she drinks, so I've been on the lookout for a replacement. And ...

I love the way everyone who visits Paris regularly has a favourite café, bar or restaurant. Kind of makes you feel a little bit local, doesn’t it? (I do the same when I visit London or New York). In Courtney's case, it is the Rose Bakery. And for a very good reason: the breakfast. In ...

Goodbyn lunch boxes from Toyella

Unlike the UK and France, where I've been told kids get a warm and nutritious lunch at school, here in the Netherlands we send our children to school with the traditional lunchbox.

Easter is quite an important day in Italy given our Catholic inheritance. It comes at the end of Lent -- a period during which for religious reasons (or simply for tradition) many people make sacrifices and give something up... like sweets, or shoe shopping! During lent it is also quite common not to eat meat ...

Last year Courtney discovered @inkandhoneyillustration on the Babyccino portal and immediately fell in love with the sweet personalised baubles. They’re now the most treasured ornaments on our Christmas tree. How sweet! The baubles are now sold out for this year, but the shop will re-open in January, and it’s worth taking a note of these for next year. #babyccinokids @courtneyadamo
