Foodies Festival

Bank Holiday Monday was spent with the lovely Abbey at Syon Park, exploring the Foodies Festival. Be warned, this post is mainly going to be photos of food 🙂

Rice Krispie spring treats

Now the days are getting longer and the sun is starting to appear more regularly (although it’s not quite time to ditch the coats yet) I thought I’d make some fun, springtime treats. I wanted to do something relatively quick and easy, and Rice Krispie treats seemed like the perfect option…

Traffic light smoothies

Smoothies are such a good way to make sure you’re getting plenty of fruit and veg, and there’s a bit of a health kick going on in our flat at the moment, which is great. I’ve been trying out a few new recipes and wanted to share my three favourites…

Interview: Yummy Mummy Nutrition

Since getting into running and fitness a few years back, I began to realise that eating properly is just as important as doing exercise. For baby-shaped reasons (and a torn Achilles) I had to defer my London Marathon place this year, but I am planning to take part next year, and with a baby on…

Easy Easter treats

Chocolate cornflake cakes topped with mini eggs are definitely one of the yummiest and easiest things to make, so as it’s Easter, I thought I’d share my recipe…

Simple chocolate tiffin

I felt like making something tasty this morning, but also wanted it to be quick and easy – I’m currently marathoning How To Get Away With Murder so naturally I didn’t want to be spending too long in the kitchen! I have a bit of a sweet tooth so I decided to make chocolate tiffin…

Paleo Pancakes

I haven’t been able to do much running recently (silly sore Achilles) so I’m really enjoying trying out new recipes at the moment. I love pancakes, but I’m one of those people that tends to pile chocolate/sugar/syrup on top of them, so I thought I’d find a healthier alternative for my pre-gym breakfast…

Rice Krispie Pumpkins

It’s nearly Halloween! Time for carving pumpkins, trick or treating and watching The Nightmare Before Christmas. My friend & I decided to create cute, tasty and simple Halloween treats – Rice Krispie Pumpkins.

Autumn Cupcakes

Now Autumn is well and truly here, I thought it was time for some autumn baking. My friend Hannah (check out her amazing paper craft work here) and I decided to make some ginger cupcakes with a bonfire design made with buttercream icing. The ginger is a lovely warming flavour, but we didn’t use too much…

Chewy Sultana Cookies

When it comes to food, biscuits are definitely my biggest weakness. I could quite happily sit and eat an entire packet, which is not a good diet. So, I thought I’d do some baking and make a slightly healthier alternative to a packet of chocolate chip cookies…
