• Vegan, Sugar Free, Apple Muffins

    “Grab and give” is my new version of “grab and go” and these sugar-free apple muffins are perfect for just that. Why have I moved on from ‘grab and go’? Seriously, have you tried ‘just’ going anywhere with two babies?  It’s impossible! Everything is a military operation. Going out for a whole day? Practically Marine level! So that means easy, grab and give foods for me, and for the babies.

  • Spicy Peanut Butter Vegan Stir Fry

    If a fresh meal can be cooked in about 15 hands-on minutes (or less, preferably less), it’s a winner in my book. As much as I love cooking, I love having time with my husband more. Or just sit quietly with no noise.

However, most of their food is baby-led and an early favourite has been these easy garlicky mashed potato cakes – perfect for when you have leftover vegetables or mashed potatoes (or both!).
