Persimmons & priorities.

Since becoming a mum, I’ve noticed a real shift in my priorities. I guess you could say that was to be expected. Emilia is and always will be my number one priority. However it goes deeper than this. Becoming a mum has given me clarity about what is important in life. It’s encouraged me to…

Emilia’s first Easter.

Emilia’s first Easter brought upon many mixed emotions for me. I’ve found since becoming a mumma I’ve become more sensitive. I’ve always had a sensitive side however I think there is this vulnerability which comes with being a parent. I was beyond excited to dress Emilia in her many Easter outfits and am eagerly awaiting her…

Feel Good Foods. Part Two.

I did a post a little while back talking about the importance of feel good foods. This next post has been on my mind for quite a while now and the importance of fuelling my body with feel good foods has never been more important. Not only am I fuelling myself, I’m fuelling my babe…

Three’s a charm.

Earlier this month we celebrated our darling Emilia’s arrival with our nearest and dearest. We called it a ‘name day’ but really it was just an excuse to get the family together and eat delicious food. Like we needed an excuse anyway. This day has been dreamt about since we announced to Alex’s family we…

Feel good foods.

As a new mum I understand all too well how easy it is to fall into the convenience food trap. I’ve lost count of the number of meals that I’ve accidentally missed, scoffed down unmindfully with one hand whilst either feeding or soothing my sweet bubba or which have consisted of snack foods because it’s…

Look mum! No hands…

So our babe is now six weeks old and we are more in love than ever. We are beginning to figure each other out and how to make our days as smooth and filled with love as possible. This is where the beloved ergo carrier comes in. Baby-wearing. Whoever invented this is a genius. I…

She’s here.

Emilia Joy completed our little family on Saturday 31st December at 9.15pm weighing 3.065kg and measuring 49cm. To say we are a little bit smitten would be the under statement of the new year. We were lucky enough to view the New Year’s eve fireworks from our hospital room. I whispered in our sweet babe’s…

The anniversary brownie and the let’s start planning dinner…

Last week, my beautiful in-laws celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. Can we all just take a moment to bask in how incredible that milestone is? Alex and I have only been married for less than two years and greatly admire the love, commitment and adoration his parents share for each other. As part of their anniversary party,…

Happy Birthday to me

So the emerging dietitian turned one a few weeks ago. A quaint little milestone. It’s been interesting to reflect how my blog has evolved over the past year. Albeit a little bit quiet for the last few months. I’ve grown from a nervous cook to a confident baker within the space of a year. Whilst…

The weeks that were..

Hi there folks, The last two weeks have been rather lack lustre for me. I’m heading into week 8 at uni, which means it’s crunch time. So naturally, I’ve turned to blogging and baking. Surely you’re all used to my procrastination methods by now. In terms of pregnancy cravings, Bubba H is already taking after…

The condolence, the schnitzel and the procrastination cake…

Today I made two of the most decadent flourless chocolate cakes by the genius that is Emma Galloway. You may remember my previous blog post about my most successful cake to date. Of course it was another one of Emma’s fabulous recipes. So why two of these cakes? Well initially I set out to bake…

Bun(s) in the oven

Hi there everyone! Sorry you haven’t heard from me in a while. Life has been a little bit hectic recently.. From uni exams, to the passing of my grandfather, to holidaying in Spain for a month and for those of you who are unaware.. We are also expecting Baby H very early next year (!!!!!)…
