{Friday Five} My Favourite Mummy Beauty Products

As someone who is lucky enough to have been blessed with pretty good if somewhat sensitive skin, I’ve never been in to cosmetics much because I didn’t really need them. Though as I’ve gotten older, I’ve found my skin needing that little bit of extra TLC – and then there are those days when both kids […] Read more…

Homemade Flavoured Popcorn

Apparently it’s ‘National Popcorn Day’ today. I’m not entirely sure in which nation, but hey, any excuse to eat popcorn! And to share my favourite popcorn recipes with you. Because homemade popcorn definitely tastes best. We used to get those microwave bags, but honestly, it just doesn’t taste the same. And you don’t need a […] Read more…

Snow Days

We’ve had our fair share of snow in Berlin over the last week or so, much to the kids delight. Although the mild temperatures and rain have now turned the lovely snow to mush and grit, we did manage to tick of most of the winter favourites: sledging, snowman building, snowball throwing and snow angels! Read more…

Sunday Sweet: Banana Oat Waffles (GF)

So, at the end of last year I bought a Belgian waffle iron on a whim. It was on sale at our local supermarket. We already own a German waffle iron, which makes delicate heart shaped waffles (my vanilla waffle recipe is perfect for it), but there is just something about big, chunky Belgian waffles. And […] Read more…

Friday 5 - snow - perview

{Friday Five} Picture Books About Snow

This past week, we’ve had our first proper snowfall here in Berlin this winter. We had just enough snow last weekend to go out for a round of sledging, snowball throwing and snowman building, and then a few days ago we had a complete white-out with a proper snowstorm. Sadly, it has since rained and […] Read more…

Courgette, Sweetcorn & Mushroom Bake

I don’t really go in for New Year’s resolutions, but one of my goals this year is to try and add some new recipes to our family repertoire, so we are not always cooking and eating the same few dishes. This courgette, sweetcorn and mushroom bake resulted from a little bit of experimentation, and I’m […] Read more…

Reflections on the year that was

Happy New Year everyone! This post comes a week later than intended, as I unfortunately started the new year knocked out by a nasty bout of tonsillitis. I used to have these as a kid all the time, and don’t remember them being that bad. But there I was with a fever, painkillers to help […] Read more…

Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Merry Christmas everybody! It’s Christmas Eve, which here in Germany means that the Christmas celebrations start today. This afternoon we’ll be going to church, afterwards we’ll be opening presents, and for dinner we’ll have potato salad and sausages. Another Christmas Eve tradition in our family, is watching the Muppets Christmas Carol, with a nice mug […] Read more…

How we celebrate Christmas – twice

As a Scottish-German family, the question I probably get asked the most is whether we bring up our kids bilingually and, if so, how? I’ve actually written about it before, so you can read my answer to that question in my previous post. The second most asked question, is probably how do we celebrate Christmas? […] Read more…
