    Giving thanks before a meal

    It’s the moments that we stop that give form to family life. When we pause amongst the hustle and bustle of the every day and witness the wonder around us. Too often we find that we just don’t make time for a pause: there’s so much to be done and so little time to do it in. But as some wise sage once said, ‘the days are long, but the years are short’, and before long you’re wondering where all the time went. Another wise sage – in the form of Ferris Bueller in the film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – said: ‘Life moves pretty fast.

    Coconut milk yoghurt

Simple to make and healthier than your average supermarket yoghurt, coconut milk yoghurts are packed with pro-biotics which are great for supporting a health gut and immune system.

Dairy, gluten, egg and nut free. Vegan and Vegetarian friendly. It’s just good, wholesome food! […] more

    Creamy cauliflower sauce

    Another magical way to make cauliflower taste like… well… not cauliflower! A lot little on the bitter side, cauliflower has been the only vegetable I have actively avoided I my adult years but a little inventive cooking has turned this once hated food into something I actually enjoy. Best of all, my children love it too. Perfect! This sauce can be used with a variety of dishes or adapted for other recipes. Enjoy! […] more

    5 Natural Egg Replacements

    Everywhere you go, in every recipe you try to replicate – egg is invariably on the list of ingredients. And, whilst they do carry many benefits in terms of health and what they can add to baking consistency, they aren’t for everyone either by choice or due to allergies. Alternatives can often be filled with synthetic materials and chemical nasties, so for the health conscious we’ve put together 5 natural replacements that are just as good (or not far off) the real deal.
