Easy Tomato Soup with Bacon

There are over 10,000 varieties, they are cholesterol free and are, in fact, the world's most popular fruit. today we are talking about tomatoes! Everyone's discussing healthy eating at the moment, so I
thought today's Tuesday Cheat ought to be a healthy one. But also quick, because, I don't know about you, but the first thing that pushes me off the healthy eating wagon is usually lack of time.

New Year, New Active Lifestyle with Kidz Outdoors

Hello and Happy New Year!

So I've been missing in action for a while after falling victim to Hurricane Man-flu. It was a real stinker. And, of course, the problem with getting ill at Christmas is that it takes ages to get back into any kind of routine. Relatives visiting, children to entertain, lie-ins and too much food all lead to good intentions and not much else! Then, before you know where you are, it's the middle of January and you've already missed a couple of birthdays... or is that just me?

Praying for Kerry #Healing4Kerry

I have recently heard about an amazing lady, who is fighting serious illness. Multiple Mummy is a blogger, a mother and a fighter. Like any mother, she is fighting with everything she has to beat her illness and go back to doing what she loves best, being a mum to her three children. She needs our help and our prayers. From one parent to another, lets send all our strength to Multiple Mummy and her lovely family. A two minute silence will be held at 10pm and supporters and well wishers can make some noise on twitter, with the hashtag #Healing4Kerry. But the healing process is a long one, so please keep Kerry in your thoughts and prayers and lets bring her home. Xx

Pizza Cake

Today's cheat is less about nutrition and more about playing with your food, 'e' numbers and sugar. Well the 'e' numbers are optional, but you get the idea. Yes, it's been half term and as the nights are drawing in, the kids and I have come up with a fun, and pretty easy way to entertain ourselves and make something really yummy!

Christmas Gift Ideas

What do you do at this time of year? Panic? Hide under the duvet? Plan a holiday to New Mexico? OR are you one of those Supermums who loves getting stuck in and looks forward to it all year? Yup, the signs are all there. It won't be long before the sight that fills a lot of parents with dread appears over the horizon. That blinkin Coca Cola truck! Like it or not, we can't avoid Christmas for too much longer. Displays have been appearing in shops for quite a while now and the adverts on the children's TV channels are DEFINITELY getting longer. So, what can we do to make one of life's most stressful seasons a little easier?

Corned Beef Hash

This recipe is one of the first recipes I ever learned to cook and is brilliant if you are lacking fresh ingredients, but craving something home cooked. This is another one that is fun to do with children,
as there's a lot of messy mashing and mixing involved! Unfortunately, Corned Beef has shot up in price over the years, so this dish isn't as budget as it used to be, but it does fill a useful gap in the menu if you ever get snowed in!
