Halloween cupcakes

Halloween is fast approaching so if you’re looking for something a bit different to offer guests for a more spooktacular treat, why not whip up some of these dramatic silhouetted bat bonfire cupcakes. Made with a very simple two tone frosting, some spiderweb cupcake wrappers and flying bat cake toppers, they’re a perfect centrepiece for your festive table! We also slid our cakes into these…

Welcome little Henry!

  Home from hospital. we’ve been spending every day cuddling and kissing our new bundle of joy and poring over the many photos of our time in the Lindo. Henry James Spilsbury Gibson was born at the Lindo Wing, St Mary’s Hospital, London, at 9.38 am on Sunday 9th October 2016 by caesarean section, weighing 4.080 kg. Just like his big…

Milk bath: homemade

It’s well known that milk is good for our bones, but for centuries it’s been used for another benefit too: for moisturising and rejuvenating the skin. Since milk contains lactic acid, it’s an effective all-natural cleanser that leaves your skin feeling soft and supple and being also rich in Vitamin E and zinc, both of which slow down the process of aging, it allows the skin to retain its natural…

But babies require certain things in different quantities for their development…

Berry breakfast

I’m a firm believer in the theory that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. It’s the fuel we need to kickstart the day and most of us feel tired and lacklustre by late morning if we’ve forgotten it.     Now I can’t pretend I don’t hesitate to leap off the Paleo wagon now and then, especially when hotels put on an extravagant buffet of cloud-like French…

Chocolate chip cookies

You can’t really beat a homemade cookie. The store bought ones are fine in a pinch, but there’s nothing quite like the taste of a freshly baked cookie.     I have one go-to recipe for cookies whenever guests pop over. These are incredibly easy to whip up, never fail me, and are that perfect combination of crunchy, gooey, buttery and sweet-but-not-too-sweet. Jamie…
