My toddler is a bit of a picky eater and I found a great recipe for toddler muffins which included oatmeal, bananas and yogurt here. I now bake a batch of muffins every couple of weeks. They are actually great for toddler and mom and make a really healthy breakfast or snack for everyone! Over […]

This photo says it all! My MIL is visiting us at the moment. On Sunday we took her out for brunch and then on to the new Recciuti Chocolate Lab (like hubby, MIL is a bit of a chocoholic) in the up-and-coming Dogpatch area of town.

I concocted this recipe and I to find creative ways to make my baby eat eggs. I also found that it was a useful way to use leftovers fruits and fruit purees. LM loves bananas, but they have to be very ripe and she will often just take a bite or two. LM has also […]

It also serves divine Recchiuti hot chocolate and incredible-looking art-themed desserts, which are not like anything I have ever come across. I didn’t feel compelled to actually have one – […]

One of the best things about living in San Francisco is the quality and variety of sushi here. I am particularly fond of sushi rolls, though Hub doesn’t consider rolls to be ‘real’ sushi. He always goes for nigiri sushi. Our current favorite sushi place in the city is Ebisu, they have a wide range […]

I think afternoon tea is one of my favourite special meals. One of the most original and fun wedding gifts (yes, I know, wedding was over a year ago!) we received, was afternoon tea at the Fairmont. We’ve had such a busy year, that we haven’t managed to schedule in this teatime treat! We finally […]
