Scampers Soft Play – Food Review

Since having my two children you are far more likely to find me in a soft play than a fancy restarestaurant. Anything that allows me 5 minutes to drink my coffee, while it’s hot  is a luxury.   Once you are in these places are like casinos,  no day light and you can’t go out…

Eat Real Snacks – Review

Since my youngest came along I’ve had very little sleep (sorry instagram followers I know I moan about it alot). This has led to alot snacking. So the idea of a healthier snack, that gives me that burst of energy, but with less guilt and less fat, is exactly what I need.   Eat real…

Adventures in (Baby Led) Weaning

When Jess was wee I went back to work not long after she turned 6 months and her Dad did most of the weaning. They mostly followed traditional weaning so purees with a few finger foods. With me staying at home longer this time I’m trying Baby Led Weaning. The idea is that the babies…

GU Mousse Fusions- Review

I’m going to be honest from the get go here, I love chocolate mousse. Every chocolate mousse, even the really really cheap supermarket home brands. I remember being on holiday in the Algarve when I was about 11 , and I’m  sure that I had chocolate mousse  every single night for dessert. There’s something very…

Review – Peppermill Bothy

I’ve seen a few posts on various parent pages on Facebook looking for recommendations of places that are good to go with kids for lunch and Peppermill Bothy out by Blairhall is a perfect spot. Eating out with kids is not the easiest thing. Firstly you have the ticking time bomb of how long will…

A new direction

When I started writing this blog my life was a little different. Going out for meals was a leisurely thing, baking was something enjoyable that I did to pass the time. Now I have a 2 (almost 3) year old, meals out are fun but stressful, there’s only so long a 2 year old will…

Mint Aero Slices

I love a good traybake. Partly because they are easy to make but also because you can take a sneaky slice before serving them to people. I’ve been playing about with a few traybake recipes recently. This is my aero slice recipe. My boyfriend said it was too dangerous to have in the house because…

Cafe Centro Edinburgh – Review

Cafe Centro is by far and away one of my favourite places to get a quick take away lunch when I’m at work. Based on George Street Edinburgh, they do a lovely selection of pastas and pizzas for £3.95. Fantastic value I think you’ll agree. My favourite is the spaghetti  arrabiata (pictured below). It’s pretty spicy…

It’s beginning to feel alot like Christmas

Well not quite but the idea of a Christmas  foodies festival  might  get you in the mood for Christmas.  Being held at the EICC on the 13th to the 15th of November it looks to be a great  event. I’m personally looking forward to taking Jessie to the Elves Christmas Kitchen and also wandering  around…
