Mornings in our home are pretty crazy these days. Aidan is up super early while Alyssa prefers to have a lie in and will sleep until the very last minute. But one thing they have in common is how much they enjoy a good breakfast!
Since the beginning of lockdown, their days are now filled with online learning and activities in the mornings and lots of free play in the afternoon which means they need loads of energy to get them through the day!
A good breakfast is exactly what their little bodies and growing minds need. The Jungle Crunchalots range is their breakfast of choice these days for a number of reasons!
I’ve been doing so much baking during the last few months, probably more than I have all of last year!
I have never tried making a cheesecake – let alone a baked one! Finally, I decided to take out the recipe I saved years ago and whipped it up!
At one point I thought it would be a complete flop! While baking, the tin started leaking water. Luckily I had a tray underneath. I looked it up on the internet and it turns out that’s completely normal for a cheesecake!
I was still nervous but once it set, it looked good and tasted amazing!
I’ve been a puppy loving human ever since I can remember. In fact, I don’t ever remember not having a dog!
Last year we said goodbye to my beloved Tony Vienna, after 16 amazing years. He was like my and Kurt’s first child. We were completely heartbroken when he passed away. Our other dog Trevor was also so sad and lonely and still misses Tony so much.
At first, I was hesitant to get another pup as it was just so hard saying goodbye to Tony but after the kids were basically begging us for another dog, we couldn’t resist. Enter Cody!
We have Cody for 6 weeks now and he has brought so much Joy into our home!
Although we can’t spend our weekends with friends and family, I still look forward to the weekends. Weekdays are hectic, while the weekends are now fully for relaxation. Sunday Tea time is something to look forward to and we usually bake something sweet. But this week I’m doing something savoury.
I haven’t had a quiche in ages and have really been craving a slice! I decided to make this simple Rosemary Chicken and Mushroom quiche recipe and it turned out so delicious.
