A couple of weeks ago I was invited to Jimmy’s Farm Festival by Beaba. The innovative baby brand were sponsors of the festival and alongside nutritionists Purple Carrot were holding some great workshops over the weekend. So I went along to see what I could learn.

Pickles and the Pictures
As you are all aware over the weekend we heard about the sad passing of Barry Norman.
I’d had this competition planned for some time and it was all pre written and scheduled to go. I was away over the weekend with very limited connection and didn’t actually hear the news until you guys started to comment on this post.
In any other circumstance I would have of course cancelled the competition, but as I was away I couldn’t. I certainly don’t want those who have entered to be at a disadvantage. So after some discussion we have decided to carry on with it.
I certainly don’t want to seem insensitive and I whole heartedly apologise to anyone who is upset by this. It is not my intention.
I would ask that any comments are kept in their current, beautiful, thoughtful vain.
On a personal note I would like to say just how sad I was to find out about Barry Norman’s passing and I know he will have left a lasting legacy. I can’t quite formulate the words I want to about this. So I shall leave it at that.
Barry Norman is a veteran of the film world as a renown British film critic, writer and media personality. He is best known for presenting Film …. on BBC One and is the programme’s longest-running host. Another of Barry’s achievements, is recreating a Victorian family recipe for traditional pickled onions, and this year marks 10 years since he first launched his range of Hot & Spicy Premium Pickled Onions.
With festival season upon us, Food Network has devised a series of Super Power recipes and snack ideas that will power you through the festival season!
There are so many things I love about summer. One of those is a bit of outdoor entertaining. A barbecue with friends. A family get together. Or just eating your lunch in the garden. There are a few things I have found so far this summer that have helped make things that bit more fun.
We eat out as a family quite a lot. It is enjoyable and often a nice break during a long day out. We have taken L with us to restaurants since pretty much the moment he was bored but there are definitely some things that make the experience better than others. Prezzo have recently launched some great family sharing dishes and we went to check them out as part of the #PrezzoLaFamiglia Challenge with BritMums.
If you can manage to not eat a Terry’s Chocolate Orange the second it arrives in your home then they have created some lovely recipes that you could make with the kids ready to give to Dad as a present or enjoy as part of a special meal.

It’s nearly time for Father’s Day. A day I enjoy so much more than Mother’s Day. I love shopping for the perfect gift and sitting down and making keepsakes with L. With only a few weeks to go I’ve pulled together a great list of gift ideas. So here it is, my Father’s Day Gift Guide 2017.
L is obsessed with snacks. He could have literally just finished a three course meal and he would be asking for a snack. This means I need a variety of healthy and delicious snacks on hand. So when a jam packed full box of Googly Fruit Organic arrived on the doorstep I was very happy.
