All grown up. Sigh!

:: We are thinking about cutting back on our beloved coffee, save a little money and save on the caffeine too. Can I substitute it for these pancakes?

:: Leyla has some great food photography tips (that I really need to take note of!)

:: In honour of national breastfeeding month (p.s. I love this blog)

:: I am grateful not to feel this way when I eat sugar. We don’t eat that much, but I’m not ready to quit altogether.

:: Speaking of sugar, I love this Foundations series. This week Emma looks at meringues, and they sure look beautiful.

:: Cute! Plus I’d like to live in a house like this one.

:: My kind of salad

:: Pretty looking paleo bread.(We’ll pass on the fennel, though)

Hope your weekend has been great so far! We are trying to cope with a very teethy little one. Surely the last teeth by now? So far all he has eaten today is frozen peas!

:: Last night I made our rhubarb and ginger polenta cake, but this weekend I may try this strawberry and lemon version – sounds amazing.

:: I love washi tape :)

:: These crepes are possibly too beautiful to eat

:: I find Jack hugely inspiring – have you checked out her blog too?

:: This sounds like a lovely dessert, but anything with apricots works for me at the moment.

:: Beetroot Feta burgers – saves me getting a BBQ ;)

:: Found these guidelines for feeding children after a year interesting, but as with all baby advice take it with a pinch of salt (we also give C full fat dairy, for example).

:: Tin can ice cream? Genius!

:: Lastly, Clotilde is one of my all-time heroes :)

Have a lovely weekend!

:: We love pancakes in this house. Plenty of inspiration (and probably too much sugar?) here.

:: These (stunning!) photos make me want to find a field and go running!

:: Making pie more beautiful – number 12 is my favourite.

:: From pie to tart, this one looks deeeelish. This one too! (and from a lovely blogger I met last weekend :))

:: Peaches and nectarines remind me of living in France, were we really there a year ago?

:: My sister-in-law has thousands of gooseberries in her garden. I’ve suggested making this curd.

:: For those of you (crazy people!) who can survive without breakfast. *warning: explicit recipe*

Wishing you a very happy weekend!

I have been a slacker, but things have been BUSY here!

:: I love this little jacket. My knitted socks fell apart so I might find a different project for now

:: A new snack for C, perhaps. He is no longer tolerating oatcakes, rice cakes or pita bread!

:: Apricot Tart to die for

:: Most of my favourite things in a milkshake – yes!!

:: Our (few) home-grown strawberries are nearly ready, but I think we will just eat them! If we do make some jam, it would (hopefully) look something like this one

:: Speaking of strawberries, these popsicles would be amazing, were we to have any sort of warm weather ;)

:: Katie is the best, right?

:: Love the sound of this prune tart

Hope you have had a lovely week and weekend!

Life has been so busy (but good) and it looks like I am returning to work (part-time) soon. We have been trying to settle C into a nursery which hasn’t been fun, but hopefully it will get a little easier in time.

I’ve started a new coursera course, who knows if I will find the time to do it all, but so far so interesting!

Food has been the last thing on my mind which is why there hasn’t been much to share! I need to organise myself a little better, especially as I’ll be working, and I’ll make something for you soon.
