Yes, that little number is a 4 on the side. I can't believe Baby Zand is already 4 years old!!! Where has the time gone? I can tell you where: to endless hours of cuddles in the middle of the night, time spent in the kitchen together making energy balls (thes...

I am kicking off my birthday week with a delicious sticky date pudding. This recipe is so easy - inspired by the amazing Nigella Lawson. Pouring boiling water over a sticky dough? Only she can pull that off, and come out of it all with a sticky toffee sauce that is to...

Tahini and sesame are some of my favorite ingredients to give a recipe an interesting, almost bitter flavor, but I know not everyone loves that. I do hope that with these yummy energy balls I will change your mind though. The very subtle sesame and tahini flavor make t...

As I mentioned last week, snack things that can come with me all day and even tide me over a missed lunch break are my go-to right now, as I am trying to get back into the swing of things. I honestly don't know how to do this working mama thing plus keep our house tidy...

Who are the most important people in your life? Your partner? Your children? Your parents? Your best friends? For me, that list includes our baby sitter. She is a big part of our family. Baby Zand is in love with her, and often randomly asks if auntie can come over to...

This month's energy balls are green - not to scare you but to add a nutrient boost with the help of spirulina. Spirulina is a blue green algae, that grows in freshwater lakes and rivers. It can be found in a powdered form in health food stores or online (see below). Sp...
