Warm apple, dates and oat purée

What is Fall without a little trip to the local orchard for some wholesome family apple picking? Actually, truth be told, this was my first time ever going on such an excursion and it was FUN! Marko had a blast being carried around in the crisp air, touching the big red apples in his hands, […]

Why I decided to donate my milk

When I first gave birth to Marko, I was given the opportunity to attempt breastfeeding for the very first time with the help of a very kind nurse who was terribly patient and knew exactly how to instruct a very flustered and still shaky new mother. She helped guide his little mouth as he latched […]

OUF!: Feeling Over-tired, Useless and Fatigued

When my husband comes home from work today, the first thing I will probably say to him after passing him the baby is “Ouf!!”. This has been anything but a restful Friday. Marko woke up this morning in a cranky and very whiny mood. Put him down to play: he whines. Pick him up: whines […]

Golden autumn: apple, pear, carrot and raisins purée

Creamy turkey, potato and corn purée

I get such a kick out of watching him experiment with different herbs and flavours as I try to carefully introduce him to the world of good eatin’! This week, I decided to put a twist to the classic Sheppard’s Pie using turkey, corn, potato, […]

Baby mama: Round 3

  Big news! I am 18 weeks pregnant… again! As many of you who followed my old blog Life’s Love Affairs know, I lost a baby two years ago when I was 23 weeks pregnant, and a few months before that, I had a miscarriage. So I had decided to get off the baby boat […]

Three summer ingredients on your plate

Euh, this rainy cold weather has gone on for far too long. I want the sun, the heat, sandals and a patio where I can sit and read my latest edition of Style at Home. It still blows my mind that people would buy books for decorative purposes, making book shelves look amazing with their colour […]
